  1. Does Mason McCoy have any upside? Wasn't an exceptionally low draft pick and has a good to decent avg and OBP at all stops. This year he's had an exceptional start. I realize he doesn't have any power but is the defensive profile enough to stick if he can hit for average?
  2. Wells making his season and AA debut today.
  3. The Rays had 4 Ks all game to our 9. We put a really high amount of balls in play and weren’t necessarily rewarded for it. We weren’t very patient at the plate which seemed to be a strategy but we put some stings into balls that didn’t fall. I think Bundy could excel in the bullpen and DJ Stewart would be better than Joey Rickard.
  4. Bundy needs to be in the bullpen ASAP. His stuff is practically unhittable the first time through a lineup. After that, it's basically batting practice.
  5. That swing......wow.

    DJ Stewart 2019

    He hit a home run through intense winds the other day. I think for him, the problem is no one on the O's 25 man can play CF other than Mullins (maybe Rickard). My fear is that they send Mullins down and replace him with Mason Williams. Stewart deserved an extended look based on what he did last year and I hope he gets it.
  7. Bundy should be in the bullpen and he should've been a while ago. Hopefully if Harvey ever makes it up here they learn from Bundy and place him in the pen and go from there.
  8. Shorebirds just won one of the craziest games you'll ever see. They were 2 outs away from being no hit and down 5-0. They then proceed to score 7 runs in a row and win on a walk off grand slam by JC Encarnacion. Grenier and Breazeale each had RBI doubles in the inning as well. Insane....
  9. Also a great night for some of our prospects. Akin was good. Grayrod's start to the season pretty much could not have gone any better. Hunter Harvey's arm is still intact. Dj Stewart was 3-3 with a long HR through the wind and a BB. Diaz went 2-5 and is OPSing .844. Adam Hall, the sleeper in our system, went 3-4 and is now batting .321. Elias will fill this system out with some high end talent but the previous administration left some intriguing pieces. For the big league team Dwight Smith Jr, Renato, and Hess are all relatively young and holding their own. Getting in on the ground floor of this rebuild is extremely exciting to me.
  10. Hall is up to .321 .853. Neustrom is a kind of under the radar guy and he's OPSing 1.027. Hopefully he can end up being a Trey Mancini type success story. But the pitching has really been great.

    GrayRod 2019

    6 IP 1H 0R 3BB 10K in his second start. He's up to 20 Ks in 11 innings so far. Wow
  12. Buck and the previous administration over worked him way too early after his injuries. I know Keith Law isn't well liked here but he called it out as it was happening and sure enough he was right. His K rate is still pretty high. His offspeed pitches are somewhat filthy still. Dude just can't get anything behind his fastball. That's why I'm happy we have Hyde and Elias running things now.
  13. As bad as it's been, there are still 10 teams with a record equal or worse than ours. Many of those teams were expected to compete. The bullpen stats will stabilize as the season goes along as we face more offenses like the Blue Jays instead of the Yankees and A's. Chances are they will still be near the very bottom in ERA but most of our pitchers who are getting lit up have an MLB track record of better results. Both Oakland and NYY were in the top 5 in runs scored last season. Let's just see how things play out going forward.
  14. Yeah this is waaaaay too early for these kind of stats. At this point I'm comfortable saying that judging off the eye test, we are better than last year. Mancini still isn't good enough in the OF though.
