What was our record in games Hays started?

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

Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie was on the 36-117 1916 Philadelphia A's.  Richie Ashburn and Gil Hodges were on the '62 Mets.

And Eugene Kingsale was on the 116-46 2001 Mariners.

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 may be setting yourself up for disappointment. Mullins' minor league OBP of .323 is just shy of major league average last year. It is likely to drop at the MLB level so Mullins probably is not the player to count on to provide OBP.

Mancini-level offense and above average defense works for me.  

I thought that he was saying that Hays was a finalist for MiLB player of the year and a top 100 prospect. With the expectations that have accumulated for him, it would be disappointing (in some measure) if all he accomplished was Mancini's results last year. 

Personally, if we had two players like that in the O's outfield for the next 5-6 years, I'd be thrilled.

I'm not sure anyone should be upset if Hays puts up Mancini-like offensive numbers in the big leagues. That would not be a disappointment at all, especially with his defense.

I agree completely (I think that is what I was trying to convey). When is the last time the O's had two home grown outfielders who could each put up Mancini's numbers from last year?

I think I'd be pretty happy with a 22-year-old outfielder who has a .830 OPS and a 2+ win season as a rookie making the jump from AA.

In modern Oriole history there have only been eight rookies with a 120+ OPS+ in 300 or more PAs: Bumbry, Gentile, Milligan, Blefray, Coggins, Grich, Murray, Young.  The Orioles have only had 18 rookies in 63 years who've been league average hitters in 300+ PAs.

(Sorry, somehow I clicked non-active players...my prior search excluded Markakis and Hyun Soo Kim in the average-hitting rookies, so it's really 20 in 63 years.)

What? Dude finished 3rd in ROY and put up 2.2 WAR. Adam Jones is basically a 2-4 WAR player throughout his career.

To me, Hays is probably not going to hit 30 bombs in the big leagues like he did in the minors. He just doesn't really profile as a power hitter. I'm not sure what you're expecting him to do. He's not Adam Jones much less Mookie Betts.

I think you misunderstood my post. I wasn't saying that I would be disappointed, but that CoC may have communicated that sentiment. 

I would love if Mancini and Hays played regularly, and each put up Mancini's numbers from last year.

Yeah, sorry, skimmed a little too quickly!

Never? This is an organization that has not produced many impact bats over the last 40 years. Machado, Schoop, Mancini and we assume Hays shortly may be the best run of good positional players ever to come out of the system since the 1970s when the system was kicking out Bumbry, Grich, Baylor, Murray and DeCinces.

It was basically a revelation that Brian Roberts came up through the system and did what he did, at the time, and then Markakis. There's a reason the fanbase treated Markakis like the second coming of Christ. We just hadn't seen a young rookie like that in years.

How could you exclude Cal Jr from this group? :)

I wouldn't be so fast with that assessment on offense. i think Hays very well could end up with Adam Jones-like numbers in the major leagues. You can argue that Hays has more power at 22 than Jones did. I'm not saying Hays will become a right field Adam Jones, but Jones is not a bad comp for him.

    • Different situation ..... Mountcastle hit .312/.344/.527 in 544 at bats in 2019 at AAA. He was clearly ready and I'm not sure how you think the Bowie time impacted that. He started at the Bowie camp only because there was no AAA. He started at the Bowie camp to delay the clock.
    • Agreed.   But I would not say it’s impossible that Hess could become a credible major league pitcher.    Not too likely, but stranger things have happened.   
    • I think because of the way that 2020 went, level/placement will be more of a combination of scouting and performance than just performance. For Rutschman, that means that while you can justify starting him at lower levels, you also likely have enough to go on to start him in Baltimore on opening day if you really wanted. That argues for a AA assignment, though A+ wouldn't shock me I guess. On Diaz, I personally believe that he has already shown he's ready for AAA. So, for me, that means I'd assign him to AAA. From there, he has issues that he needs to work on, most notably his availability and production over time. He has flashed nicely at times, but then he inevitably has missed time for various reasons and tends to start slow upon return. That seems to have suppressed his stats. Also, I honestly think there's a red flag in there somewhere with Diaz. I think the O's like the talent more than the make up. If he's traded, I wouldn't be shocked at all. I also acknowledge that I'm reading between the lines here and have no strong evidence, for what it's worth.
    • Actually, you are right.   Not only was Hector Velazquez on the original 60 man roster so was Rob  Zastryzny.  I will add both of them to the OP. Good catch.
    • Hess and Arrieta should never be mentioned in the same sentence unless it to say they were both once drafted, developed and pitched for the Orioles.
    • You are right..it’s not the answer I’m looking for because it’s not an answer to the question you were asked. If I ask you, what is your favorite color and you tell me a banana, that is an answer and it’s not one I’m looking for..that doesn’t mean in insulting you, it just means that trying to discuss this with you when you clearly don’t want to answer the questions and you want your agenda is a waste of time.
