  1. It's time to see what Akin and Hays can do even if they aren't fully cooked. I wouldn't mind seeing Akin for two or three innings at a time. Zimmerman just got to Triple A. He'll get his opportunity next year.
  2. I noticed Santander was in LF and Stewart in RF tonight. I haven't noticed the alignments in other games where they have both been in the OF, but isn't Santander more of a natural RF and Stewart a LF? Santander certainly has the better arm. If I'm not mistaken, that's where they both primarily played in the minors as well.
  3. Jeff Ballard had 62 SO's and 57 BB's in 215 innings. And managed 18 wins with a 3.43 ERA. Mind blown. All of our starters that year walked close to as many as they struck out. If you don't have at least a 2:1 strikeout to walk ratio in today's game you aren't going to make it.
  4. I’d describe it as high effort from what I saw last night. Not exactly smooth.

    Keegan Akin 2019

    95 percent of the adult population has to work at being in shape. Some people just have bad bodies/diet. Doesn't mean they aren't in shape. Ever look at Daniel Cormier? That guy is in incredible shape, but you wouldn't necessarily know it by looking at him.
  6. Bishop is officially an org guy. He'll be 24 next season and likely repeating Frederick. Knight and Grenier aren't far from being org guys themselves. A 24 year old in A ball is not a prospect unless they just came over from Cuba.
  7. Dietz was never very good. For me it's McKenna and Blaine Knight. 1A and 1B. Knight is already 23 and his numbers in Frederick are just terrible. Grenier has been disappointing as well, although he was a reach where we picked him and struggled significantly in Delmarva last year. Those are the three that come to mind for me. Hays has been ehhhh.....kind of like how he was last year. Disappointing but not a real surprise. At least he's hitting for power and playing a competent CF. I think Hays and McKenna can do better. Knight and Grenier not so much.
  8. His presence is already a hindrance to developing players on the current roster. Forces Mancini to the OF and keeps a potential corner OF on the bench. Also, doesn’t allow us to play Sisco and Severino in the same lineup as often as we could. So yea, he’s clearly already a hindrance. They are running out of reasons not to release him. He would have been out of baseball last year if it wasn’t for the contract.
  9. Does he start at Frederick next year?
  10. I hope it's Hall at SS and Grenier at 2B considering Grenier is quickly becoming an ORG guy.

    I feel Elias really wants to see guys dominate a level. If Hays and Diaz has to repeat Bowie this year so does McKenna.

    Ryan McKenna 2019

    You really think they are going to promote a guy hitting .233? Elias has been very judicious with promotions. McKenna will very likely be repeating unless he catches on fire over the last month.

    Ryan McKenna 2019

    Mr. McKenna is likely going to be three-peating in Bowie.
  14. Lowther's walks are too high. Need to come down quite a bit. But man, they don't square him up (78 hits in 116 innings) and he misses bats. Regarding Wells, how many other starters in the minors have under a 2.0 BB/9? I would think not too many at all. Really excited to see what these guys can do in Norfolk and Baltimore next year.
  15. Is he hurt again already?
