  1. I just added up his time in the Angels minor league system and got an average of .288 Trumbo also has the better walk rate, though it’s still nothing spectacular. Good points about age of level and hitters leagues.
  2. Trumbo was about a .285 hitter in the minors. There’s nothing wrong with being the next Trumbo
  3. No position. Doesn’t take a walk. Next Trumbo?
  4. Id probably say: 1. Rutschman 2. Hall 3. Rodriguez 4. Hays 5. Diaz 6. Mountcastle 7. Kremer 8. Harvey 9. Henderson 10. Lowther
  5. The O’s knew they’d never pay him 10/300, so why didn’t they trade him earlier? When they could get better value.
  6. I’m sure this has been settled but why would we be trading any of them? You don’t trade prospects for prospects, and we’re not looking for established big league players. Anyway, I’m sure this has been settled.
  7. I wonder if exit velocity and ground ball percentage could have been thoroughly looked at then. Also, a study failing to find a correlation isn’t the same as disproving an idea.
  8. It just seems intuitive. There’s usually a thin line between a ball missing a bat and hitting off the end or edge. Does fangraphs differentiate between a ball hit off the top of the wall and one hit weakly back to the mound? At least in an FIP sense?
  9. We don’t often agree but we do here. I hate the way some of these metrics evaluate pitchers. I’ll never be convinced there isn’t some ability in inducing weak contact.
  10. Plenty of disgruntled former employees would say the same, regardless of whether it’s true. People don’t like to be fired.
  11. I think if there’s one thing we can develop it’s power hitters. Probably a fluky occurrence but stranger things have happened
  12. Well that’s stupid. He’s a lot more valuable than the difference between 1 & 2.
