  1. The curve ball was a real weapon for him last night.
  2. What's the longest stretch of baseball he has played w/o being on IL?
  3. He's a big boy and has a thick lower half. He drops and drives and looks like he has a tough time getting over top his lower half and falls off the the left side. Looks like a compact and efficient motion nonetheless, just might be a body type thing. One thing I'd be nervous about is telegraphing his pitches. Looks like he might have a tendency to tip pitches to advanced hitters.
  4. He looks like a man amongst boys down there, just in the way he carries himself. Game moves slower for him. I was super impressed when he kicked it into high gear on Friday to turn a single into a double. Shows immense baseball IQ and a pretty darn strong run tool.

    Swing looks like Bryce Harper from the right side.
  6. Took second base in LFers face for a double (laser off 3b glove). Advances to third on ball in dirt that got away from C. He has a thick lower half, very muscular. Pretty quick and athletic for a big dude. He can move.
  7. Just got my first eyes on Adley. ABs are so professional. Fouled off half dozen pitches and gets sac fly. Cool as a cucumber. First defender out on field. Met knew pitcher on mound before inning. I’m impressed
  8. It's like I want to like Wynns, but he can't hit, can't run the bases, and isn't a spectacular catcher. Why do I want to like Wynns?
  9. That's a crazy tool, for sure! And those are a lot of draft picks in the last 15 years. Here is a list of some notable alumni List of IMG Academy alumni - Wikipedia
  10. I hear ya. I prefaced the Kjerstad statement with an 'if', it's a huge question mark, but a lottery ticket that will be fun to watch play out. I'm hoping for best case scenario that he's fully healthy and productive so it'll be like adding another first rounder to the system. I'm assuming GRod is up next season killing his prospect status. But with a productive Kjerstad, 1.1 coming in, Latin influence, and players from last two years drafts having success it seems the system could be in better shape next year than it is this year. (this is a pipe dream scenario - the orioles give me n
  11. A colleague of mine's son is moving down to FL so his son can do his senior year at IMG. If you have the means and the talent, it's probably the best "high school" to use as a platform to show off your skills. Kids from all over the country move to Bradenton, Fl to play all the various sports they offer. We run into them in Basketball every year. While our team is a perennial top 10 in the nation team, IMG is is a class above. Same in all sports. Not really a high school, it's a sports academy where talented kids go to learn how to become professionals at an early age.
  12. If Kjerstad comes back healthy and makes a major impact, it will dramatically impact/improve the system. It'll be like adding two 1st Round draft picks to next years mid-year prospect rankings.
  13. Mountcastle’s OPS is up to .803 after last night. Been climbing steadily for a while now. Good news.
  14. I was thinking the same thing. Before watching video I was thinking it was going out to LF. Crushed that ball. Pretty swing. Wonder if he got a little homer happy after that ball through off his swing a bit.
  15. Or a trade chip reveals itself. Can't have too much talent.
  16. Seriously. They check the hat and inside of the belt. Let's start gettin' creative.
  17. I like the idea of Turner next year as the initial big splash a la Jason Werth 2011. I know it will never happen, but would be amazing. East Coast guy, complete stud, gamechanger, and stick it to the Nat's. Turner would bring back some former O's fans.
  18. I'd really like to see two decent SP's signed to help usher in the young guys. Something like a Heaney & Stroman. Robbie Ray would be a dream. *2 year deal max, ideally 1 year with more AAV.
  19. Singleton & May had 99. Eddie had 88. 1977 Baltimore Orioles Batting Statistics | Baseball-Reference.com
  20. He had 7 walks in first 57 games for a 3.6%. He's had 16 in the last 42 games for a 9.3% He walked 101 times in 2217 plate appearances in minors or a 4.5% I don't' think he's *figured it out, but there is room for optimism.
  21. Got me thinking more about Markakis' rookie year - what else is there to do in 2021 as an O's fan. After 99 games in 2006 Markakis had 86 hits / 14 doubles / 4 home runs /27BB & a .746 OPS. In his last 48 games he hit 11 dobules and 12 homers / OPS .879 and He finished the year @ .799. After 99 games in 2021 Mountcastle has 95 hits / 18 doubles / 18 Hr/23BB & a .775 OPS. He has some work to do, but he has put himself in position to finish season above .800. I don't he has 11 doubles and 12 homers in the tank. As you said, .850 down stretch is what he wi
  22. Will he backflip for a hold or does it have to be a save?
