  1. "Just OK is not OK". For this program, at least. We have 9 years of evidence. He's a high floor, low ceiling coach. His teams will never be terrible, but they'll never be good enough to win anything either. If that's acceptable to some as a fan, that's fine. For those who want more, it's Turgatory.
  2. Congrats Luke, that's awesome and well-deserved.
  3. Lol, I feel like that quote must be some sort of parody. "I really like him but didn't give him a big grade." "Fringe-average runner" "Can really throw, his arm is at least average" "Aggressive at the plate but also selective". In line with this scouts insight I'm going to say that Zach Jarrett might make the major leagues, or he might not.
  4. I think if you are looking forward to the Rule 5 draft with "anticipation" you deserve to be a bit disappointed It's a bit nothing show for the most part.
  5. What pitchers is he going to sign? Certainly not any legitimate, actual major league pitchers. Some AAAA guys, minor league free agents I'm sure. Maybe a guy who's been hurt for 3 years but was good in 2015. I have no problem using those types of guys to round out a staff but not to comprise most of it. And yes, I'm glad and looking forward to seeing some of our AAA prospects up here, but so far Elias has been quite conservative in promoting guys, so is he going to pull guys up here if he doesn't think they're ready? Probably not and that's not a bad thing....but someone needs to pitch.
  6. I don't totally agree. I have no problem with terrible. I disagree with Elias that the full scorched-earth approach is the only way to go, but it certainly is A way to go. But there's a line where "terrible" crosses into irresponsible. Again, who's going to pitch games for us? It's not a rhetorical question. Right now it looks like our rotation is Means, Cobb, Asher W. You have to actually field some semblance of a baseball team. If we can't score that's one thing, but we need at least some guys that can get people out.
  7. Meh. His value wasn't high, none of the guys we got back seem that interesting to me but that's about what I'd expect for Bundy right now. Hopefully they can mine some gold. My concern is - I get rebuilding to a point, but you do still need to field a team that can get through a season. Who the heck is going to pitch for us next year? Bundy may not have been very good but he could at least give innings.
  8. Yep - in general I agree with MurphDogg, the enjoyment is the journey, not necessarily the end result. So I'm fine with competitive seasons that don't end in WS wins. But dang it, I want just 1.
  9. But does the ball come out of his hand well?
  10. I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland. But other than that I generally agree with your take.
  11. Not hard at all. We live in Carroll County and we're usually there by around 6 or so.
  12. I'm generally opposed to these sorts of things but I like this one for now. I've hated these one-batter pitchers since I was a kid. But still, in the interest of speeding up the games, ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO DO IS MAKE GUYS STAY IN THE BOX. I don't understand why this is so hard. Quit re-adjusting your batting gloves and taking a stroll after every pitch. The game would flow so much better.
  13. That's not true at all. There are still a ton of very healthy little leagues around the area with good numbers.
  14. Love it - as far as kids go, it not necessarily about getting there, it's about getting home at a more reasonable hour.
  15. Hall seems to have limited power and limited expected room for power. Hernaiz hit 2 HRs as a SS in the GCL - might not seem like a lot but there aren't a lot of HRs hit there and he was largely playing as a 17 year old. 5 SB with no CS shows some smarts on the basepaths. This is of course extrapolating info from VERY limited data. I think Hall is the safer bet at this point, I just really like the limited data we have from Hernaiz.
