Baseball ages of tonight starting lineup

Recommended Posts

Alberto 27

Santander  25

Nunez 26

Severino 26

Ruiz 26

Mountcastle 23

Sisco 25

Valaika  27

Mullins  25

I'd say that is pretty young.   Hays 24 could replace Mullins.  Velazquez 25 could replace Valaika.  That would be younger.

much love to you phil. By the way, your name always reminds me of this scene from City Slickers 2:

 

 

 

I had forgotten that scene...because my name is Philip.

Remember that scene from Star Trek the next generation…

Where the annoying woman is taking to Data and keeps calling him “Dah-ta.” And he keeps politely correcting her, every single time, until eventually she flies into a rage and says, “ ‘Dah-ta,’ ‘Day-ta’ whats the difference?”

And he replies,” One is my name. The other is not.”
 

🙂
 

edit: Considering it’s 30 years ago, I remembered it pretty well.

Oh I do remember that scene! I'll never call you Phil again. "Pass the Philip" doesn't have the same ring to it, you're right. So you're not Uncle Phil then either. Got it!

Oddly enough, it's not the offense I worry about.

I agree. Making sure GrayRod and DL Hall reach their potential is the most important. And developing someone else besides them too.

Hyde has hinted that this won't be the last call up. Perhaps we see some of these young starters. We certainly have some arms to check out in the bullpen with guys like Kramer waiting in the wings. I think Elias will inject these little shots in the arm as we progress. 

We are in a great position to be honest. While other teams in our division are subtracting players due to injury, we are in a position to add quality depth. Very exciting weekend!

I like the passion! 
 

By my count 5 of these guys are either mediocre in the position they are playing on defense or out of position.... (Alberto, Núñez, Santander,, Sisco, Mountcastle). And they would be no better with Severino at catcher.
 

Is Valaika even a real SS?

I really hope Diaz and Kremer join Mountcastle in the next few weeks.

Diaz isn't on the 40.  I don't think he's going to be added.

My bad, but a man can dream.

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
