You might be thinking this guy. He was traded so fast he probably never hit the 60 man.
Can you humor me and define playing effectively at AAA with some sort of range?
I don't think .262 batting at AA in 2019 and a year with no competitive ball screams I'm ready. The guy has been 20-30ISH points better in regards to AVG/OBP/SLG earlier in his progression. I'd like to see him hit .280+/.350+/and 850ish at AA. Maybe he's not capable but I think he is and would like to see the Orioles start promoting guys when they prove they are ready and not as acts of desperation. Would I promote him if there was a need and he was hitting .270/.335/.825? Sure .... Lower than that I wouldn't want to! Part of the Orioles problem is that they had a pattern of low OBP guys. So I want to see Elias to focus on complete hitters. I love homeruns as much as the next guy but hated watching our guys unable to produce runs any other way.
Again, you are making it clear that you do not consider anything that happened at Bowie in 2020 to matter. From what I have read, the Orioles strongly disagree with you. Maybe you are right and the Orioles will ignore what they saw in 2020 and place everyone at their 2019 levels, but I would tend to doubt that. Mountcastle's promotion would seem to be solid evidence of the Orioles' view of the level of growth and learning that went on at Bowie.
I’m not insulting you at all. You just aren’t answering any of the questions and it’s a waste of my time continue to ask you the same questions over and over again. RZ has asked you and I have asked you and you still haven’t answered it. You just aren’t comprehending what we are asking, so it’s not worth going any further.
But sure, if you want to take that as Sports Guy is always right, be my guest...it goes along with the rest of your reading comprehension in this thread.(and pretty much all threads)
