Still not a high enough OPS for Frobby to want him up in Delmarva though! :)

If Rutschman hits .692 in his first 14 PA at Norfolk I will reconsider my position as to whether he’s ready for the majors.   😉

As to Cowser, I initially guessed he’d be in the FCL for two weeks.   He’s obviously ready to be moved up but I’m not going to lose sleep over whether he’s promoted tomorrow or after this weekend.

He’s obviously ready but you are fine with keeping him down?  I just don’t get that mindset but whatever, no biggie.

Cowser should be in Aberdeen to start next year and should be in Bowie rather quickly.

I don’t think 5-6 days matters much in the scheme of things.   And there may be things they do in Sarasota to indoctrinate their players into their system before they send them out.   It’s not just a matter of “is he hitting well.”   

Now if it goes on longer than this week I’ll be surprised.    

I certainly agree that Cowser should start next year no lower than Aberdeen.   Maybe even Bowie depending how he looks in the spring.

2 for 3 with two walks today, including a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 9th.  Oh yeah, he also threw a runner out at 2B.

2 for 3 would actually drop his average, as he was at .692 coming in to today. 
 

He’s clearly not being challenged at all. Maybe he can go to Delmarva now.

So now that he's slumping you want to promote him?

Elias just didn't want Adley hanging around with a bunch of losers.

That will preclude calling him up to the Majors for a while.

Norfolk’s not really a great destination either!

I know you're aware of this, but I still think it's worth pointing out.

Moves are not made with the only consideration being "is player x ready to hit for team y?" There's something called logistics. That means flights, hotels/rentals, other roster moves with corresponding flights/hotels/rentals, medical appointments, family considerations, perhaps workout routines and things I haven't thought of.

What I'm saying isn't a disagreement with your overall stance of being more aggressive, I'm just pushing back on the sniping about a few days here and there. There's unavoidable reasons for "the mindset" that are not at all baseball related.

    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
    • https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/11/marlins-attempting-to-trade-jorge-alfaro.html Jorge Alfaro would be a good option.
    • They’re certainly both culpable. I just feel so bad for hitters, though. Their eyes are magnets for little specs of dirt floating around right before the pitch.
