  1. Stewart is my guy, with Mountcastle getting plenty of reps out there as well.
  2. "C" seems about right given the info we have, which isn't much. With the understanding the "C" isn't good or bad, but perfectly average.
  3. Is there a list of those that were cut somewhere?
  4. Love you Moose. No chance you can state with certainty that Akin is a Quad-A pitcher.
  5. I realize there are MUCH MUCH more important things going on. But man, the loss of the minor league season this year is such a killjoy. For the Orioles right now I'd much prefer to be able to follow the minors than try to piece together a MLB season.
  6. I kinda sort pull for the Braves, because they were so fun to watch when I was a kid. But I wouldn't say I'm a fan.
  7. I've got a somewhat similar story. A few years back - I think my son was probably 6 or 7 at the time as well - we had a coach's HR derby at the end of season picnic. We were in the little league field but we had to use a T-ball bat. A couple of other guys went and nobody hit one out. I came out and on my 3rd and final pitch got a high one that I tomahawked over the LF fence. My son was over on the other field - I didn't even know he was watching. But as I took a very slow, glorious victory lap around the bases, I heard him yelling over everyone else "YES! YES! I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DO IT!!!" I mean no one else even cared, but he thought it was the coolest thing he'd ever seen. He then sprinted over to the field (and he doesn't sprint, ever) as fast as he could to give me a high five. One of my favorite memories.
  8. Well certainly not all refining needs to be done at the minor league level. Very few players are fully cooked when they arrive - eventually you need to take your lumps at the big league level. That being said, there's not much evidence that Akin has nothing left to learn at the AAA level. He wasn't dominant there last year, juiced ball notwithstanding. But I do hope we see him up here sooner rather than later. Like I said, eventually you need to cut your teeth in the majors.
  9. Teams have been imagining such "super rotations" as long as farm systems have existed. Rarely do they pan out (actually I'd say never do they pan out as hoped, but never is a strong word). And to say that if they don't get Rocker the whole thing was for naught is just silly. They got a very good prospect in last year's draft, they'll get a good one in this year's draft and almost certainly a good one in next year's draft as well. Let's ease up on the hyperbole a bit.
  10. This is a bad comparison, and Moose hasn't said any of those things. He never said a woman COULDN'T do the job. Just that it was his preference to hear a male doing the job. And that's a perfectly valid preference, but I would imagine that Moose would also agree that women should have a right to pursue those jobs if she's qualified (don't want to put words in your mouth though Moose.) Regarding black QBs/black coaches, that wasn't a matter of preference. There were people who legitimately thought that blacks didn't have the intelligence/fortitude/whatever to handle the position. That was indeed racist and far more nefarious than what Moose is describing. Anyway - in before the luck lol. Good luck to all the "new" faces!
  11. How un-woke of you Moose! For the record I agree with you - it's one of those odd things where I think absolutely, there's no reason a female shouldn't be able to do that job, they can be just as knowledgeable and engaging as men. And yet my personal preference would be for a male to be in the role. Perhaps over time that will change.
  12. The only thing that really interests me is the young pitchers. Would like to here how they're looking, any added (or lost) velo/movement/new pitches/etc. The young pitchers are the most interesting (and important IMO) part of the system right now.
  13. Sure, I agree with all that, but Sisco's never going to be an excellent defensive catcher. His calling card is going to be his hitting. Honestly if I were him that's where I'd put most of my efforts and focus, and it sounds like that's what he's done.
  14. If he can't hit - and so far in the big leagues he can't - then any glove problems don't really matter. I haven't fully given up on him but he has a lot to prove.
