CONLEY

No, Conley has not been good.  But I don’t have a problem with him being on the team this season.  He’s not on massive wages.  He can get guys out.  No he’s not dominant, he doesn’t work out of jams without preventing runs.  But we’re not winning anything this year.  This is kind of the perfect season to give a guy of his profile an opportunity to try and carve out a new role on the team.  He’s in his late 20s.  He’s got decent size and he’s a former starter.  He tried the pen last year.  Let him continue working on that this season.  If things haven’t progressed for him then you make the choice to part ways.  But for now I say keep him.  I’m also aware that every time he enters the game I say/think/or post “Conley!!  UH!” or something of the sort.  In all seriousness though I think he should get 2019 to compete for a future spot and in some cases eat some innings in games that require it. 

 

I don't remember there being a great demand for him on the trade market last year but I'll take your word for it.  He's certainly not worth moving now.  I wouldn't sell low.

I think there was some trade demand, but I think we'd have been trading at low value, and we put some enormous overvalued price on him that nobody bit on.  At least from what I read.

“feel like every guy I walk is unacceptable,” said Conley, who has allowed four free passes in 9 2/3 innings this season. “That’s really the thing about this game that bothers me the most. I’d rather I’d have attacked him and he put the ball in the seats, you know.

“I came into a tie game and my job was to hang a zero. I didn’t do that, and it all started with that walk.”

“There is an insanity about baseball that makes you love it and hate it,” the 28-year-old Conley said. “You can say it’s not fair, but there is no such thing as fair or unfair in this game. There are things that you can control, like walks, and I didn’t.

“I’ve had balls go through the infield for the last 24 years -- that’s going to happen -- but I need to use this as an opportunity to get better. To get better [arm] slots, to make better pitches, to miss bats. That’s all on me.”

I would give him a pass due to what he said after this game, not every player would blame himself so much, right ?

see Dontrelle Willis during his decline..... it was always on him.

There was a demand for him at the deadline last year for sure. I agree that we shouldn’t sell low now.

Adam Conley will be a top-50 relief pitcher in baseball when he puts on another uniform. Might as well call him Brad Handrew Miller.

Conley is going to be the next guy that we DFA and see him turn into an Andrew Miller or Brad Hand elsewhere.

Don't get rid of him yet.

Yeah I feel same about Conley, though it's frustrating.   I mean Guerrero didn't exactly come in and save the day either.  Get an out guys.
