Mullins already has 5 Doubles in only 33 Plate Appearances (29 At-Bats.)

He's going to be a doubles machine.  Quick bat.  Can pull the inside fastball down the line. Reminds me of Brian Roberts in that way.

Brian Roberts holds the All-Time Major League record (1876 - Present) for doubles by a switch-hitter in a single season.

And a triple machine too.  Didn't the O's set the all time record for fewest triples in a year last year?

I love young guys that come up hitting doubles.

Some of them wind up developing HR power, but even if they do, I think the skill of being able to hit doubles lasts longer.   It declines much more slowly at the back end of a career than the ability to hit HRs does.

Plus doubles are fun to watch.   In this three true outcomes era, getting to see balls bang off walls and runners coming around to score and outfielders having to use their arm is more rare than it used to be.

How has his fielding looked so far?  I've had few chances to watch the O's the last 2 weeks.

He's no Jones out there in Center, that is for sure!

He's clearly going to get to more balls than anyone who has played CF for us for a long time.   There have been a few hiccups, ball in and out of his glove, a misjudgement here or there.   But that's all teachable.   He's got speed that isn't teachable.

Still getting his bearings, though. He’s looked tentative on a few deep balls in the gap.

He'll hit a few for sure.  It's difficult to hit triples playing in Camden Yards though.  

If he was playing half his games in one of those big stadiums in the AL West he could probably lead the league.

Once again folks need to temper their expectations a bit.

What are the risks associated with unrealistic expectations of switch hitting African American baseball players?

    • With two games to play, the Orioles could still end up picking anywhere from 3rd to 10th. To pick 3rd they would have to lose their final two games while Boston and Detroit win their final two games and Washington wins one of their final three games. We currently have the sixth pick as we jumped Arizona yesterday to move up from seventh. If we were to win our final two games we could drop to 10th with one win by Arizona and two wins by Kansas City, Colorado, and Seattle.

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.
