Nice video on Rutschman

Recommended Posts

Not sure how many O’s fans have Pac12 network but here’s a pretty cool video on Rutschman.

I’ve lived in Oregon for 15 years now and he’s a local kid so I’d love to see my hometown team select him #1.  A friend of mine is friends with his family so my little ball players and I got to chat with him a bit after the loss to Cal last night.  A very grounded kid from a great family.  No matter where he goes that team is getting a great kid.

Someone posted this in another thread, but it’s a great video.

I watch some of the Pac12 games streaming on the Pac12 network site.

Thanks for posting.  The run-up to the draft is going to be something.  My impression of how Houston played the draft in some of the years Elias and Mejdal were there is the Correa 1-1 "reach" to save draft allotment for McCullers, and the hardball with Brady Aiken, a choice time has borne out as definitively correct, but which surely was hard for the fanbase as it was unfolding.

I imagine the science of decision making with such a big asset requires diligent consideration of an array of alternative scenarios, but I'll rest easier this summer if the conclusion is just regular, please.

He just homered again. I know because the ball landed in front of me as I was walking home from work.

Next you are going to tell me the game was on the road.

It had been pissing rain all day and the sun was dramatically trying to peak out creating a Wonderboy vibe.

Just wanted to let people know that ESPNU has Oregon State on at 10 tonight. I know some may have access to Pac 12 Network but I don’t think OSU has been on any ESPN channel this year. 

They were rained out last night and play a DH  today. First game is at 5pm our time. Have to see what game he catches.

    • No pitchers with elite stuff, track record of performance, and desirable delivery/measurables. I think Lodolo is probably the top pitcher, I like him better than Singer last year, but doesn’t really have TOR upside, he’s 92-95 lefty with sink, slider, curveball, change. Throws strikes, lots of GBs, avg command. Slider is a new pitch and gives him a chance to miss more bats. Other potential top pitchers drafted are Alek Manoah who is an extra large human, 93-98, plus slider, developing change, has had command and consistency problems but has really improved as the season has progressed. Was pretty much projected as a reliever at the beginning of the year, but has shook that label.  Jackson Rutledge who is a JUCO guy with command issues but a huge frame and huge stuff, he’s t100, he’s kind of a Nate Pearson clone.  Zach Thompson who is a lefty who  was kind of falling down draft boards until he sat 94-96 this past weekend with a plus curveball. His stuff is so inconsistent, it’d be a hard sell for me before 20 overall. George Kirby who doesn’t have anything plus, but is polished, with a bunch of average to 55 grade pitches and potential above average command. Then my favorite, Seth Johnson, who has a best mechanics of them all IMO, converted SS, has pitched one year since middle school. 91-96 t98, plus slider, high spin curveball, change. Poor pitch-ability and below average command, but like I said he’s literally just started pitching. He could be 4 plus pitches with successful development. The lack of track record could be viewed as a plus or a minus.  Those are the top college arms, the high school class has depth but doesn’t have anyone I’d be excited about taking in the top 15 overall.
    • Making lemonade out of lemons,  the BP ERA is 6.55, 29th.  Coming in at #30, the Nats, 7.41.
    • They are still off the AL record for runs allowed in a season.  They are allowing 6.71 runs a game. The 1996 Tigers allowed 6.81 runs per game.  So things could be worse.
