What was our record in games Hays started?

If Mullins is ready, I'd like to see him given the LF job and move Mancini to right. Hopefully provide OBP and a little more speed at top of lineup. I think Hays could use a full season in AAA.

You think that Hays needs a full season in AAA but at the same time you think Mullins might be ready?  And you would put the best outfielder in left?

I know you said if.  But you seem certain that Hays isn't ready.  Do you think Mullins is closer to being ready than Hays?

Readiness IMO....

Stewart>Hays>Santander>Mullins

Quality of prospect

He might have.

In this case it was, of course, Trout.

Not saying Hays is going to be half the player Trout is, just that a small sample size in September doesn't mean much.

Mike Schmidt and Cal RIpken really stunk it up at the start of their careers too

Mullins has already gone through an entire MLB ST. He was derailed by injuries after a red hot start. An argument could be made. 

Let’s just say we should be real happy we have both.  Both seem like tough guys mentally, but Mullins has that extra chip on his shoulder. I’d never count that guy out. #nugget

I am excited about Austin Hays going forward. I think he's going to be a fine player. If we get another Mancini in RF I'll be thrilled ...

I can't get overly excited about a guy whose team went 3-13 in games that he started.

There just has to be a significant correlation there.

A team with Cal Ripken and Eddie Murray on it once had an 0-21 stretch.  :D

I was so glad when the Orioles traded Murray at the end of that season.

It was no surprise that the 1989 team subsequently had one of the biggest turnarounds in baseball history.

    • According to the source I used, he was a RHP from Newport HS (WA).
    • I guess you’re too young to remember when the goalposts were at the front of the end zone.  Or when a jump shot from 24 feet was only worth 2 points.    
    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
