It’s time for Jimmy Paredes to play every day

The Baltimore Orioles, losers of 15 of their past 20 games, might buy at the trade deadline. They might sell. Management doesn’t really know what to make of this team, and Friday night’s heart-breaking loss to the Tampa Bay Rays will not make the decision approaching the trade deadline any easier. One thing is clear, however. Jimmy Paredes needs to be in the lineup every single...

Baltimore Orioles should consider trading Jimmy Paredes

“No one ever got hurt taking a profit.” So goes the old adage that Wall Street veteran Jim Cramer repeatedly espouses on his daily television show on CNBC. Cramer is correct. When you sell at the top, there is absolutely zero chance you will be left holding the bag when things go soft.

Jimmy Paredes showing plate discipline is overrated

One of the best stories for the Baltimore Orioles this season has been Jimmy Paredes‘ explosion onto the scene. Paredes is fifth in the American League in batting with a .319 average, ranks third on the Orioles’ roster with 38 RBIs, and has hit a ridiculous .457 with runners in scoring position. He’s done all this with only 11 walks in 59 games. Paredes is clearly not looking...

Fantasy Roundup: Sanchez, Paredes, Carter

Last week I wrote about Aaron Sanchez’s struggles and since I’m a sucker for young pitching I watched his start last night against the Orioles. If you don’t look at the walk column you would say he pitched a pretty good game. However, it’s difficult to ignore the seven walks.
