I know for a fact 100% I want Givens gone. He has nothing. If they releaaed Perez I wouldnt give 1 f**k but I get it too. Hes LH. He was good last year. He still has a fastball. Its a guarantee he would be claimed and you prob dont care if a non contender claims him but if its the Jays or Rays or Yanks and he is kicking your ass in Aug and Sept its an extra kick in the balls.

Didn't have a big issue with the Givens signing.  Wouldn't be my guy, but whatever.

 

...but he has looked absolutely awful.  He doesn't seem to have any command OR control.  He was actually ok last year, no idea what is going on, he's certainly not this bad.  Go back on the IL, something.

Someone mentioned the weight gain.
That does seem noticeable.
It hasn't been encouraging.

Can you go on the IL for being hefty?

They come up with a reason to put 'em on the injured list and basically dispatch a conditioning coach / dietician to get him into playing shape. Shouldn't take more than a month, no?

I've seen several websites that list Givens' current weight as 250 lbs. That's a tad heavy for a guy only listed as six feet tall.

Was Givens just a one year deal?

Here's a hint: the Orioles signed him to the deal

I mentioned the first time he came up that he looked quite overweight. Don't know if that auto contributes to out of shape and or loss of performance but it sure didn't help. 

 

I always liked him as I thought his delivery was hard to pick up. Now it just looked slow and awful.

Givens is clearly thicker than he was on his first tour with the Orioles.  I commented that he looked like he was uncomfortable pitching.  I guess he was.

I guess he was healthy enough to come of the 60-day, so it was either activate him or release him. In this case, I don't think there'd be any corresponding move regarding the 40-man.

Really sucks that they owe him another $2M buyout next year, which doesn’t sound like much, but this being the Orioles….
