Nice Tony! This is great to look at. I'd love to ask particulare questions on players once I've reviewed it more thoroughly.

Real quick, it looks like you have Joel Hutter as SS at Aberdeen and as UTL at Frederick.

Thanks. Yeah, I was just looking for someone to put into Aberdeen. At 23-years old, I think Hutter will get a utility job higher in the system. Aberdeen is tricky because the draft will fill a lot of spots.

Love the rotations in the upper levels. So darn encouraging.

You may have addressed it before, but why Schoop back at SS if he's going to be a 2B/3B in the big leagues?

Bobby Bundy moving to closer? I'll assume it means he absolutely projects as a big league reliever, if he gets there, but why not let him keep logging innings in the rotation anyway?

Schoop could find his way over to second base but I think the organization sees more value in him as a shortstop overall. If they can convince some teams he can legitimately play SS in the bigs with his bat he'll have some nice value. He's played enough second base that they know they can move him there if they need to.

As for Bundy, I heard at the end of the year that they were considering moving Bobby Bundy to a relief role. With the changes in the minor leagues management, that could change this spring though. In my opinion it makes sense to give him a chance in a relief role. I think he's a guy who's stuff would take a step up in short bursts.

Where does Brandon Waring fit in here?

I know he's 27 year old organizational depth, but he'll be in someone's lineup I assume. I wouldn't be shocked to see him at a corner infield spot in Norfolk depending on who opts out or who makes the Orioles.

Also, has it been reported that Bobby Bundy will no longer be a starter? I hadn't heard that anywhere.

I'd be surprised to see Zelous Wheeler in a backup role in AA after DD made a move for him and he hit well in Bowie last year. I'd expect him to start over Buck Britton.

Not that you can put much stock in Winter League stats, but Zelous Wheeler absolutely crushed the Mexican League this past winter. He had a 328/425/537 triple slash in 244 at bats, with 21 doubles and 10 homers. He also walked almost as much as he struck out and went 11-12 in SBs. I'm going to keep my eye on him this season, to see if he can carry any of that with him into the regular season. http://mlb.mlb.com/milb/stats/org.jsp?id=bal

I'm lovin' this chart. After a week of Spring training games it looks like this chart remains intact except that Flaherty may make the 25 man roster. Also,

I wonder if any team major or minor has ever started a season with an all lefty rotation. Frederick is almost there.

Thanks Tony. Thinking Jair Jurjjens makes the team or opts out of his contract?

Also, seems as if Bowie and Delmarva are going to have different DH's going into the season.

I'm not sue about Jurjenns. I could see him getting traded at the end of spring training or sent to AAA. I think the Orioles need to find a way to keep Steve Johnson on the team, which could mean Hunter gets moved as well. I'm going to update the DHs, thanks.

    • I think the most we'll hear about it down the road is in regard to HOF cases. If a player like Miguel Cabrera ends up 100 hits shy of 3,000 - people will bring it up in those discussions. The only real "record" that someone could achieve this season, like many have mentioned here, is hitting .400. I doubt people will give it much weight - and it'll probably become more of a trivia question or fun fact than a true honor. If some crappy team like the Orioles somehow gets hot for 50 games and wins a World Series - there certainly will be the wink and nod that it was obviously a fluke - but it'll be too much fun for everyone for it not to mean something.
    • I used to listen to all the Baltimore Bullet games in 1968-69, how many times did I hear "Rebound Unseld, off to Monroe (or Loughery).  His full court chest passes were unbelievable.  That was such an exciting team and the seven game playoff wars they had with the Knicks (Willis Reed, Dave. DeBusschere and Bill Bradley) were unbelievable to watch.   Wes Unseld visited my school Johnnycake Junior High school during the '68-'69 season and talked about what he thought was important in life.  I recall he said how much he admired his father above everyone else.  He was a class act, RIP Wes,.  It was a joy to watch you play. 
    • Interesting that Minnesota and Cincinnati both had higher winning percentages. The Orioles however would beat them both in the post season.  I recall the Reds got off to a great start that year and Johnny Bench had a career year,  
    • If the owners get their way and have a 50 game season that's only 155 PAs to qualify for the batting title. It's kind of too bad that David Newhan is always the poster child for these things, but in his first 155 PAs in 2004 he hit .376/.426/.567 with a nice little .410 BABIP. He was still at .403 at 141 PAs before finishing those 155 PAs 1 for 12 with 2 walks. I think it'd be great if a guy like that hits .400 in 2020*. I remember Robbie Alomar was still over .400 in June of 1996 and just looked and he was at .404 after 59 games and 274 PAs. It won't be crazy at all if this happens. A guy like Newhan would be so much more amusing though. Maybe by some odd quirk the O's face like 80% lefties and Hanser gets there.
    • Reading this article on Asa Lacy,  it would seen that he has a lot of talent but will need to change his delivery to find the control needed to make the majors. https://www.camdenchat.com/2020/6/3/21278323/mlb-draft-2020-asa-lacy-preview-orioles The video shows Lacy not looking at the plate as he delivers  some of his pitches.    Elias has shown a lot of faith in Chris Holt in his first year.  He has moved him for minor league pitching coordinator to pitching director that includes the majors and minors.   Some of the O's pitchers have commented on how Holt has helped them. How much faith do you think Elias  has in Holt?    The O's have had some excellent pitching coaches in the past.   Bamberger, Miller, Wallace.    Could Holt reach that level of importance to  O's pitching?  
    • My bad, his formal first name, was Westley. I accidentally omitted the t.  
    • Funny that you mention 2043.  That is the year my service ends with Tracfone.
