    Obviously this is inside team info, but I'd really like to know how they model and translate DIII stats, it just doesn't seem like there is sufficient data on those plays in affiliated ball to have much confidence there.
  2. It’s definitely not remotely the same thing in journalism, quoting someone is an important distinction where you must use the subjects words as they were spoken/written.
  3. Hopefully Zebron at some point. JJ Montgomery is another possibility.
  4. I don’t see what this has to do with the article. These guys are all better prospects than Means was and there is no point in rushing any of them to the majors. Some are probably ready for AAA, like Zimmermann and Kremer.
  5. There is an issue with contact quality on the fastball which could be driving the BABIP to some degree. It’s a starter’s repertoire for sure but my concern is whether the fastball will play at the MLB level at (90-94), which is what makes relief more likely IMO, he’d be lights out with a couple more ticks.
  6. Yeah, I wish I could watch him so I could give you all a report, but the fact he made this list when there are a number of much higher probability types who could slot there should be encouraging.
  7. I don’t have a scouting report on the guy, but BA obviously must have some reports on him and there must be some tools to go along with the pro frame. He was the Orioles top bonus 2018 J2 guy and Elias/Perez’s first 6 figure guy.
  8. I haven’t seen enough of Gunnar to rank him that highly but plenty of people have, if reports of him already having above average raw are true, it makes his path to a MLB role and a quality ceiling much easier than Hall.

    Regarding Maddux, averaging 91-92 with double plus movement is a completely different animal than 88 with below average life regardless of the league-wide environment. Add in the about 3+ mph greater league average velocity now vs in Maddux’s day and the already huge gulf of fastball quality is even wider.
  10. That’s definitely not a quote, at best it’s an attempted paraphrasing. I’m not aware or the quote he’s paraphrasing so it may just be misremembering.
  11. He absolutely did not quote Elias.
  12. Nick Stevens is a serious guy, bit of a homer, but far from an insider. The article is a solid albeit completely speculative piece, the what Elias wants part is just an educated guess. The most useful part is a look at some interesting prospects in Padres system (which Nick knows well since he’s covered that system in some manner for a while). Not talking about this one in particular but you post a lot of sources that are just really speculative entry-level fan type blog posts. Which is fine, there’s nothing wrong with that, but referencing them in an argument as some sort of fact just because they are published on the internet isn’t a good practice.

    Baumann definitely has some relief traits, lack of a 3rd MLB pitch (last time I saw him, curveball had the quality, but not the consistency/command), and fringe command. On the other hand he holds his velocity well and has a starter’s frame/build. I think categorizing him as a relief prospect is lazy, just as I’d say calling him a starting pitcher prospect without mentioning relief risks/traits would be lazy.
