stupid question....Is one of our DSL teams considered more advanced than the other? or are they the same level?

Same level. I'm not sure how they divide the talent between the teams, but there is some back and forth movement.

Current DSL Leaders:

 

BATTING

One Oriole hitter in top-10 in BA

 

PITCHING

Three Orioles pitchers in the top-10 in ERA

I know the stats don't tell the whole story, certainly at that level, but the O's are well represented on the pitching side.  In addition to their top 3 that you mentioned, they have another 5 or so guys in the top 50 of the league era-wise.

That hitting side is the complete opposite.  Sorted by OPS, besides De La Rosa, who is about 15th overall, the O's don't have another guy in the top 100 it looks to me.

While there may be some environmental factors involved, I think it is safe to say the pitching for the O's in the DSL is more promising.

I like following this Acevado kid.  He seems like the most high profile of our Intl signs.  I've seen a few lists of names to follow in this thread, but can Luke or someone else with some knowledge of our DSL guys put together a "Top 10 Prospects" list of guys to follow in this league?  This list should be based on potential and scouting reports and not stats.

No, I just don't have enough info to do that. Wish I did, but I don't. 

Definitely agree that stats in the DSL don't mean much at all. I'd just suggest following the young players who bat in the top half of the lineups and play up the middle positions. Those are the most likely to be prospects. For pitchers, young players with some size who start games. A 17 year old pitcher might sit 95-98 and be a legit prospect but not be able to throw strikes yet or not have any offspeed pitch yet, but that player is definitely a better prospect than a mature bodied kid who throws 86-88 but has an average breaking ball and fringe changeup he can throw for strikes (that type of player would dominate the DSL).

6'4" Center Fielder who's only 16. Yeah, I'll take that!

He was a six-figure guy; he should be pretty good.

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
