  1. https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/savant-player/adam-jones-430945?stats=career-r-hitting-mlb This says Jones' sprint speed in 2015 was 79th percentile. From 2017 on, he's been around 50. Austin Hays last year was 85th percentile. There's no data from before 2015 but I recall Jones having slowed down a bit by then. They seem like mostly the same player to me, but Jones had a big head start by being healthy enough to play.
  2. It doesn't seem out of the question for Hays to have a 3-4 year run like Jones'. Putting up the same 10-year run is what's near impossible.
  3. What are some examples of pitchers with a walk rate like Hall's who turned out well?
  4. Statcast had his sprint speed at 54 percentile this year compared to 63 last year.
  5. Villar and Roberts are basically the same player.
  6. Is he even going to the AFL at this point?

  8. Stewart moved sideways when the ball was falling in front of him.
  9. "Mike (Elias, Orioles executive vice president/general manager) and I sat down several weeks ago and kind of went over a program that we both thought was going to be beneficial not only for me, but the Orioles and my teammates as well. I’ve enjoyed being around the guys and getting a chance to kind of coach and teach. Something that I didn’t really expect to do at this point in my career. But just like last night, we had a chance to maybe get a backdoor out with two outs and a guy at second base." Is the program not him completely rebuilding his swing and body in the offseason?
  10. Villar is #1 in baseball in Fangraph's baserunning metric. https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=y&type=8&season=2019&month=0&season1=2019&ind=0&team=0&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0&startdate=2019-01-01&enddate=2019-12-31&sort=18,d The outs can look bad but how many extra bases has he taken? 99 runs scored in an unexciting offense.
  11. Davis on the bench and Mancini at 1B for the fourth game in a row.
