    Stop with the Analytics Questions

    You are probably right but at least it would be a chance to hear something different.
  2. Jeez, I have watched multiple MASN interviews with Elias and Sig. stop asking, “How important is analytics.” Asked and answered. How about these questions: How do you go about filling out a scouting and coaching staff this late in the season? How many scouts do you believe you need? What parts of the farm system do you believe need the most work? Is there someone you are looking to have work with Davis? has Bobby Dickerson been considered to stay in the organization?

    An Early Look at the 2019 Draft

    Thanks for this. You make some excellent points. For the record I was in advocating taking Green, just noting that he was a guy that when you see him hit it’s easy to see the projection. I think like everyone else I want this to be an obvious decision. That is probably why I had the reaction I did. It is obvious there are times he is cutting down on his swing and that is a good thing.

    I don’t pretend to be a scout and would love to hear from someone more knowledgeable. That highlight film just doesn’t blow me away. Doesn’t mean he isn’t great or is the wrong choice but he doesn’t impress me as a hitter like Riley Greene does, for instance.
  5. Yeah, I hope he knows Bobby Dickerson

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    All of these guys look good on paper but there isn’t enough just from what you see on paper to really know who is best. That’s my basic point. So, while Hyde looks like a good choice everyone on the list looked like good choices

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    First of all this is just silly speculation. Second of all, no one on this board has any idea if Hyde would be better than the others interviewed except maybe Acta and Hale who people have had some opportunity to see manage.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Here is where we learn how honest Elias is. Interesting that he squashes this the way that he did here. Doesn’t really equivocate.

    I don’t lie that the ball doesn’t seem to jump off his bat.

    Hyde: New O’s Manager

    Don’t you guys understand it is much easier for the team that the manager is coming from to give up the info? Hyde goes to the Cubs and says he is leaving. It gets out to the media.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Acta. I wanted Dickerson to get a shot. Seems he is good with young players and I don’t think he has the taint of Buck. BTW, I think Buck was great but time to move on

    Heckuva lot faster than Winters. Swing is shorter. Ball doesn’t seem to jump off the bat.

    Speed

    Sure why not maybe there’s a correlation that we didn’t know. 😀

    Speed

    I would be good with an all speed team experiment. Not much to lose. You are just as likely to find a gem among the speedsters as any other group of players.

    It is amazing how tight this search is. There are so few leaks.
