Turning and watching the ball carry into the stands, another old friend Adam Jones.

BTW both those teams are under .500, Dbacks having lost 6 in a row.

Dan Duquette had a history with the Red Sox and certainly knew Grandpa Carl, even if only from spring training visits.  With the ship sinking last September you might have thought Dan would have given the younger Yaz a call up more as a warm & fuzzy to Carl, a HOF acquaintance.

I’m very happy Li’l Yaz is making the most of his opportunity.    At the end of the day, I think he’ll show himself to be nothing more than a AAAA player.    But if I’m wrong, it won’t be the first time, or the last.

It's 2019.  Five homers in 25 games is what your utility infielder is expected to do.

Question: Why was @mikeyaz18 never called up in any of his 6 years with the Orioles?

 

Because Yaz is a AAAA prospect who's upside is Joey Rickard. 

Yeah and we never gave playing time to guys like that!

How many "league average" hitters are in the Orioles' lineup? 
Since his May 25th call-up little Yaz has a WAR of 0.6 to go with .256/.311/.476/.787

I still contend that if his name was Mike Jones nobody would particularly care that the O's never called him up and that the Giants claimed him.  If the O's call up Chris Bostick and he goes 11 for his first 35 I'm going to find the Pirates' fansite and see if they're freaking out.  Has anyone found the Jays' version of wildcard and checked on him, since Dwight Smith Jr and all?

If we had a crystal ball we could make a 96-win team out of minor league players by picking and choosing who to play during their hot streaks and who to bench when they're going to get cold.

Or you could flip it around and inflict Yaz' .603 OPS in a month in AA last year on some unsuspecting team.

Completely missing the point.  Dismissed as a "league average hitter" which he could very well be, but that's something the Orioles are sorely lacking.  TEAM OPS+ 85

Do you think it's sustainable?  Do you think he's going to be a ML regular in two seasons?

I don't care if it is or it isn't, nor am I bemoaning trading him, or even saying we could use him.  IF we ever see guys like Hays in our line-up, no one (well, there may be one exception) is going to be saying they wish we had Little Yaz Instead.


The Orioles TEAM OPS is 25th in MLB.  Again, it's solely about dismissing a player that over the stretch in question would be 3rd on the team.

I don't think they are ever going to get to the point that they can predict that sort of thing.  It's a blip.
