Boog Powell (MiLB OF)

Recommended Posts

Saw him play in Durham several times this year. Small dude. I supposed MASN could have a field day with promos showing him and the original Boog next to each other. Does seem odd the parents called him that.

He's a 22 year-old OF that hit .295/.385./.392 across AA and AAA last year. He would seem to profile as a lead-off hitter type.

Yea, it seems like we would have a need for good OF, but whatever. I guess we couldn't match Logan Morrison and Danny Farquhar.

He has quickly and successfully made his way from the lowest levels of the Minor to the highest levels of the Minors.

The Mariners added him to their 40-man roster, and he just turned 23 years-old two weeks ago. His extremely high OBP has remained that way, all the way from the Rookie Leagues and the Advanced-Rookie Leagues through the AA and AAA levels.

I would love it if we had him and were able to see him play in this upcoming Spring Training, but I have a feeling that the Mariners aren't going to let him go ...... not so easily, anyway.

Got a good look at him in Durham two years ago. My FB Memories app said this was two years ago today, in fact. Was against Norfolk oddly enough.

Powell was scratched from the lineup just before game-time last night, due to a flu bug.

The last time that Boog Powell hit a home run against the Orioles was on September 19th, 1976.

In fact, the last 2 home runs that Powell ever hit in his career was against the Orioles' two 20-game winners (Jim Palmer and Wayne Garland) on back-to-back days in September of 1976.

And now, the new Boog Powell hit his first career home run against the Orioles.

Rumors and News

    • You must admit we run the wide range of opinions here, some have me scratching my head as to what team they actually like.  
    • Other teams aren’t just dropping out of the market because it’s getting late. The crux of dumpster diving is that it’s the scraps no one wants. 
    • Let me amend my last statement a bit. Detroit and Cincy are definitely less appealing destinations then Baltimore. I'd argue the Phillies and White Sox are on the upswing so they'd probably be more appealing to most FAs. I think this discussion might merit it's own thread!
    • The Orioles do not want to sign any free agent pitchers to any deals longer than 3 years.  These 2 guys are simply going to be too expensive and demand too many years. I wish it wasn't so, but the fact that we just got out from under Ubaldo's abysmal 4 year deal is probably not going to help persuade them to rethink their policy.
    • I'd feel much better about signing Cain to a four year deal if he was 27. If they decide to go the route of a speedster, they might be better off signing someone Jarrod Dyson to a one year deal given the uncertainty of the direction in which this team is heading long term. Other than starting pitchers, I don't think they should be giving three or four year deals to any offensive players right now (aside from extending Schoop). This is a team in limbo even if they're too naive to admit it.  And to that point, I wonder how Duquette is able to even sell multi-year deals to respective free agents? Everyone knows that Machado is on his way out and that this team, as constructed, will probably not be able to contend. Why would anyone want to sign a multi-year deal wit the Orioles right now (over another team) unless it's strictly for the money? Short of Miami, I'm not sure there's a less appealing team in the majors right now. And yes, San Diego is bad too, but at least you get to live in San Diego.  
    • The question is, will the OHOF hold their PED use against them?    They’ve kept Raffy out.    We might need to wait until some of the 2012-17 core has retired.    I’d expect Markakis, Hardy, Wieters and Jones all to go in one day.    Manny and Schoop are further away but will get in later.   
    • Could DD simply be waiting for the asking prices to become reasonable and then strike to land two guys like a Cobb & Lynn? Next year there are some great position players who will be Free Agents, but not pitching. With teams trying to limit spending this year why not splurge for two such pitchers and then you could trade them after this year if you need to. The idea being that those teams willing to spend next year will not find much pitching on the market. Could this plan work?
