  1. I’ve seen Mick against our local HS and at my son’s baseball sacademy. Kid throws easy gas and a humble kid.
  2. I’m surprised that Tillman hasn’t gone up to Driveline in Seattle or a few of the other schools known for increasing velocity and helping in pitch design. I guess he’s just given up and content in retirement.
  3. My friend teaches HS math with ARs mom. I texted her to see if Mrs R is giving any “tells”. I really hope it’s Adley.
  4. Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere, I didn't see it. The Athletic has an excellent article on the Astros approach to minor league pitching development. Take a look at it if you have the subscription. It sounds like Holt was a great hire for the O's and perhaps they will adopt/improve the Astros' cutting edge approach.
  5. https://www.mlb.com/video/mlb-tonight-adley-rutschman Harold Reynolds talking with AR on MLB Tonight
  6. Great article in today's "The Athletic" about Rutschman.
  7. What other progress has been made? Any technological advancements? Any key hires?
  8. Oops, yeah forgot about that. Fine career though.
  9. What if you could get Joe Mauer like production out of Adley? Both guys were tremendous athletes at similar age, both sweet, efficient swings. No brainer.....
  10. Hey Luke, what do you think of HS junior Mick Abel? He's climbing and should be Top 5 in the 2020 Draft. I'm always amazed at the talent in the Portland area.
  11. I've always thought Wieters had a really looooooooooong swing and didn't have great bat speed. Together he never seemed to be able to catch up with a good fastball. Rutschman's swing seems more efficient therefore he is better equipped to turn around a good heater.
  12. Nope, you're right. It is his hand. Discomfort due to blood clots. It's a real shame as he's a great kid. During school breaks he works out at my son's baseball academy and helps the younger kids.
  13. Might also be thinking of another player in Oregon, Oregon Ducks pitcher Kenyon Yovan, he's been out most of the year with a bad shoulder and he was supposed to be 3-4 round.
  14. Two oppo tacos for Rutschman today. The guy is a beast.
  15. Another positive: we're one day closer to picking Adley Rutschman. Another positive, OSU commit Mick Abel is a good looking RHP for the 2020 draft. This Portland area kid is throwing mid 90s as a junior and has climbed into fan graphs top 5 for 2020. Yes, I'm a big Oregon State baseball fan
