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 NBA and NHL are handling this better as we aren't hearing this public bickering.  Really it doesn't help the players or the owners to argue about more on this.  It makes them look both greedy and harms the sports image in this time where most everyone is suffering in some way.  I don't really care how they divide up the money.  Just go in a room and get it done.    Both sides would lose with a shutdown with NBA and NHL starting in the middle of summer.   I am sure cable subscription numbers will be down due to thie economic reality of the situation.   They already have the shame of the cheating scandal. They want to back that up by not playing because of money?
    • I listened to Nick Sundberg on a podcast.  He is the player rep for the Redskins.  He shared a detail of the negotiations for the NFL.  He said that the owners proposed that if a player tests positive for COVID-19 they would go on a non football related injury list for a minimum of 14 days.  The problem is that, unlike injured reserve, the player doesn’t get paid when on the non football related injury list.  I’m curious as to how the MLB proposal handles this.
    • Just saw this little tidbit.    I didn’t know Bill Gates was an Orioles fan!  🤣
    • Look 8 straight 7+ WAR seasons may be good for you but it’s pretty thin from where I stand.
    • There are lots of ways to look at this situation. Here's mine. Most of the owners are highly successful business people (or their children), many of them entrepreneurs who build businesses from the ground up. Quite a few of them have MBAs, law degrees, or business degrees. I'm sure many of them have lots of passion for baseball; I know that at least a few go to a lot of their teams' games. But I think that whatever emotional attachment they feel to the sport has little if any effect on the way they approach decisions like the one they now confront -- it's a financial matter, to be analyzed pretty much like other major business decisions. These guys look at their teams predominantly, if not exclusively, from a financial point of view, just as they would if they owned a business that makes computer chips or sells office supplies or owns vacation resorts or whatever. Aside from wanting to build a winning team (which I think is pretty much irrelevant to the 2020 situation), they have two related objectives: making money from their investments in MLB, and maximizing the price they (or their heirs) will get when they decide to sell the team. From their financial perspective, both those goals require creating for MLB (and their individual teams) a business model that enables them to make money under a wide variety of foreseeable circumstances. And that's what they've done. The Forbes numbers, and the information about the sales of teams, says most teams are doing well. I've seen it said in a couple of places, though I can't remember where, that the owners have been on a roll. So here comes the pandemic, and it presents circumstances that won't allow teams operating under the regular business model to succeed. Many teams, maybe virtually all of them, are not going to make money if they have to pay the players their pro rata salaries, bear their normal expenses plus those of creating Covid test capacity and other safety measures, and don't sell tickets. The pandemic has put, and will continue to put, many businesses in a similar position: each owner of a restaurant or department store or theater has the right to decide whether to operate under less-than-optimal circumstances, stay closed while waiting things out, or fold 'em.  The same is true of MLB's owners (except that they aren't about to go out of business). From their point of view, there are two viable options: restructure things so that most of them can make some money, or forget it. The owners undoubtedly have in mind an amount of MLB payroll (maybe it's 60 percent of players' pro rata salaries) that will enable them to accomplish the first under conservative assumptions about other costs and revenues. If they can't get payroll down to that amount, or close to it, they won't open for business. Maybe that will harm baseball in the long run, but I don't think they care much about that, or that has much impact on their negotiating position.  I guess it's fair to say that the owners should feel an obligation to give us baseball this summer as a measure of their patriotism, even if that involves some financial sacrifice, or that the widespread public support of stadium construction for the benefit of many MLB teams imbues them with a some responsibility to serve the public, or that a league that enjoys protection from the antitrust laws shouldn't deprive the country of the only top-flight baseball in the country. I don't think the owners look at it that way. Their obligations are to themselves (and their stockholders or partners), just like in their other businesses. The barrier on the players' side is history. Over the past 50 years, they have accomplished impressive gains in salary and benefits. But the owners have never made it easy for them. They have forced the union and the players to make those gains slowly, over time, by litigating everything they could litigate. They have cheated and colluded to lower salaries whenever they could. Anyone can feel differently, but I can't say the players should agree to be paid less for 2020 (OK, maybe a little less) than what their contracts or the CBA calls for, much less agree to a completely different compensation system whose outcome will be unknowable for a while. Calling on the players to give up their legal rights in order to bail out the owners, because the owners might lose money for a change, has little appeal to me. The fundamental fact is that Major League Baseball operates on a highly structured, heavily negotiated arrangement between parties who don't trust each other. (Well, the union and players certainly don't trust the owners. I assume but don't know that the owners don't trust the union. I suppose the owners trust the players, but I bet more than a few of them resent the fact that they pay so much money to guys who, they assume, would never make it in the business world. (Some of them can't even speak English!)) I don't blame either side for the fact that the pandemic demolished baseball's financial arrangement for 2020. I'm saving my anger and name-calling it for the 2022 strike or lockout or work stoppage.
    • I agree. See Christian Laettner as another example at Duke. But he had to shut up and sit the bench on the Dream Team...lol Remains to be seen just how far he takes it, but I doubt it is anywhere near those two. That would be something the area scout would have to do his homework on. Elias will have that diagnosed. If you win, you're a leader. If you lose, you are a malcontent or ego maniacal because you hate losing. Martin has been a baseball player for along time, so I am sure his fire is tempered some. Its a game of failure, and that is what Jordan learned as a Birmingham Baron. It's very humbling. From what I have seen, Martin has the respect of his Vandy teammates. You have to have some Alphas on a winning team. Whether anyone likes them or not.
