    Midseason Report Card - ignoring defense

    Yes C+ may be a bit harsh; his grade suffers a bit because of his age, speed, and position. However, you could argue he is on target age wise given he was drafted out of college
  2. LF: DJ Stewart C+; Randolph Gassaway C; Zach Zarrett C-; Ademar Rifaela D+; Mike Yastrzemski D CF: Ryan McKenna A; Cedric Mullins B+; T.J. Nichting D- RF: Anthony Santander C; Austin Hays D+ 1B: Wilson Garcia B; Seamus Curran C+; Collin Woody C- 2B: Corban Joseph D+; Preston Palmeiro D 3B: Ryan Mountcastle A; Renato Nunez B-; Trevo Craport C; Drew Dosch D+; Jomar Reyes D SS: Chris Clare D Catcher: Jean Carrillo D; Andrew Susac D-

    Manny’s an all star

    Well there is precedent ... kind of .. former Cub journeyman Steve Swisher made the 1976 all star game as a last minute backup C because he was near his phone after a rash of injuries and schedule conflicts forced MLB to do some deep diving. He struggled even more post all-star game and finished with 0.601 OPS that year.

    O's to call up Ryan Meisinger and Paul Fry

    Kudos to the Orioles for allowing Corban to spend a few days in the majors with his brother and for giving other teams an opportunity to consider him when it became clear he was buried in the minors.
  7. There is no amount of off season work that will help a person who cannot track a fastball; check out the video of one of his takes last night; his eyes were focused on third base as the ball crossed near the center of the plate. I'd DL him for 10 days and run a battery of eye tests with a top opthamologist; I'm concerned about more than his baseball career at this point

    Palmer sounds like he's had enough.

    Well whenever the HS scouts showed up at my children's travel games --- the short parents were encouraged to disappear

    Palmer sounds like he's had enough.

    Pedro Araujo was the subject of Palmer's frustration last night. Upon entering the game, Palmer (paraphrasing) mentioned that the A's must be feeling pretty good about the fact that the only reason the pitcher they are facing is in the majors is the Rule 5 draft. He also stated that if Araujo is one of your top options you need to fix your minor league system (again paraphrasing --- it was late or actually early as I watched on DVD this morning)

    Weather permitting, I plan on leaving tomorrow too and attending Saturday's and perhaps Friday's game. When is the AA/AAA game on Saturday?

    Jose Mesa Jr - Rule 5 Draftee

    A player selected in the AAA Phase of the Rule 5 Draft must be assigned to the Reserve List of the AAA club that drafted the player and he must be given a 15-day trial during Spring Training with that club, but the player can be assigned to the Active List of any minor league affiliate in the MLB club's organization once the minor league regular season commences. Also, unlike players selected in the Major League Phase of the Rule 5 Draft, a player selected in the AAA Phase does not have to be offered back to the club from which he was drafted if the player is ultimately assigned to the Active List of a minor league affiliate below AAA.
  14. Araujo: I believe he sits in the low 90s. He has shown great control but some scouts question his command.

    Is Miguel Gonzalez Returning To The Orioles?

    Could Santander be part or all of the package for Gonzalez? Waivers might be an issue but aren't the Sox in last?
