Default DeAza is still horrible

I'm watching Sunday Night Baseball and DeAza let a very catchable ball land in the first row at Camden Yards. Next batter hits a line drive to left for a maybe double, DeAza's throw rainbows over the second basemens head, not even close to getting the runner, a good throw and he's out.

De Aza is not a complete player. He is a terrible baserunner and suspect outfielder, but has pretty much proven to be a capable hitter. Since joining the O's he's hit .341 with 5 xtra base hits, 5 runs, and 2 stole bases, and 6 rbis. Don't think they are unhappy with the trade. Heard Gary Thorne talking about how they might resign him already, they may think otherwise though the more games they see him play up close...

Before the O's make a judgment call on whether they re-sign him or not,maybe they should watch what he does in
the playoffs.The heat will be on the O's this year.I know the Halos can take it;can the O's??

De Aza can bring some value as a 4th/5th OF- even with his flaws-

Alejandro is doing the job at the plate for the O's.

They are happy....I was thinking that someone would pick him up down the stretch and find that he can help them....but no one would bite until the O;s did...smart GM in Baltimore.

He had one good year with the Sox and that was out of necessity on the Sox's part. He has gotten progressively worse since then. He is a below average out fielder a poor base runner and has below average baseball IQ. Good bye and good riddance. He might be hitting a little but Baltimore knows he is just a stop gap because of injuries and that's all. Old time baseball analogy he's a bum.

The Os think they have gotten a steal. While I disagree with them, De Aza has been tearing it up with them with the bat and glove.

A change of scenery can be a good thing.

On a highlight reel, shortly after he was traded to the Os, I saw a classic De Aza outfield gaff, with a near-collision with the Os center fielder that resulted in runs scored.

Good for De Aza, but I'm glad to not have him on the Sox any more.

DeAza hit a base-loaded triple last nite to seal the deal for the O's in their division clinching victory.

Must have been the nite for triples...Coner hit one with the bases loaded last nite, that broke open the Sox game.

Eaton had a triple also.

Dunn had a near miss double off the top of the wall last nite for the A's.

Jake Peavy went 7 2/3rds with one earned run last nite in a win for the Giants....he has won 6 of his last 7 starts.

Good nite for former Sox guys.

DeAza ends up .308/.357/.564 for O's. Go figure. He'll probably tear it up next year too.

He went 0-4 Sunday so his final line is .293/.341/.537 but yeah, played in a slightly more limited role and routinely hit in front of Jones, Cruz, and until he was suspended Davis, so a lot of protection for him. I don't necessarily think he's a bad ballplayer, but I also don't think he's a cornerstone guy, either in ability or leadership. A guy who is known to zone out on the field sometimes, I'm sure playing in pointless baseball for most of the time like he did with the Sox the last 2 years, it's not hard to kind of fall asleep out there.
