Fall and Winter Leagues

Recommended Posts

McKenna is currently 4th in OPS in the league as the league approaches the midpoint of their schedule. Phoenix seems like a fun baseball town...baseball almost year round.

So what if he's OPSing 1.133.  What matters is he has no homers and no steals.  :cool:   Btw, his OPS is over 200 points higher than any teammate, but it is a small sample size.

Everything is small sample size in the Fall League. :)

Yeah that’s why he’s not doing that well in my AFL fantasy league. (Yes, that’s a joke.)

Chris Lee has pitched well in the AFL.   2 runs in 5 IP yesterday after throwing 5 innings of 1-hit ball his previous start.    Maybe back on the radar screen just a little?

I heard people getting varied looks,  some good some not so much. Apparently his velocity has been all over the place and hasn’t commanded the slider well enough to miss bats at a high rate. The fastball is a good pitch and limits contact quality, but is that enough to get MLB hitters out.

He's only had 1 hiccup in the AFL. I think that he has earned a spot on the 40-Man.

I didn’t want to start a new thread so this one will do:

Throwback to David Wright in a Tides jersey. We must’ve still been with Rochester back then.

Don’t forget our halcyon years with Ottawa.

Wright played for the Tides in 2004, when the Orioles were affiliated with Ottawa.

He's now 1st in OPS.  Granted, he's only played 14 games.

I'm very excited to see him doing well, even though it is small sample sizes. His offensive performance at Frederick was well above his other stops. I wanted to see some exciting offensive production and he has more than provided it. I know 14 games doesn't mean much or maybe anything really in terms of projections, but for pure fan fun it's great.

Here’s a link to the stats for all our guys playing in the various winter leagues as well as the AFL: http://mlb.mlb.com/milb/stats/org.jsp?id=bal

Not much of interest on the hitting side outside of the AFL.   Anthony Santander has a .188 BA down in Venezuela.   Luis Ysla has a 3.00 ERA there despite carrying a 1.76 WHIP.

In the Dominican, Pedro Araujo has a 2.79 ERA while striking out 13 per 9, and Diogenes Almengo has a 1.69 ERA.    Nothing else that really interests me down in the DWL; the hitters there are non-prospects.

Today is the final game of the AFL regular season.    Ryan McKenna is at .344/.474/.590 while playing only about half the games; hopefully he gets to play today.  Steve Wilkerson has been just so-so at .282/.372/.338.   Martin Cervenka has struggled, .212/.241/.346.   None of our relievers have been too impressive, though Tanner Chleborad has managed a 1.46 ERA to match his 1.46 WHIP.   Tyler Erwin is at 5.40/2.00, while Jay Flaa is at 4.50/2.00.   Chris Lee has been the standout at 3.05/1.26, pitching as a starter.

    • Bad move and I am not going to be excited about it! I gave a list in my last posts of guys they could've taken a shot on in the rule 5. Obviously some of them aren't ready but who cares. They would've saved around 1 million dollars and as long as his glove plays who cares if you are signing a guy that going to get on base as such a low percentage anyway. I honestly thought Elias would move away from the low OBP guys that have been a staple of Orioles baseball for a long time. I understand trading Iglesias for resources ....But I don't see how signing this guy does anything but cost extra money that the Orioles are showing signs of financial distress.
    • I said I was exaggerating! I'm not incorrect in saying that this move is "Dumpster Diving" or the Bottom of Bargain Bin signing! And as @Tony-OH said they could've just gave the at bats to Martin or someone else that we have playing for the minimum. Or draft a guy in the rule 5 that perhaps has a future in MLB baseball. Like Lenyn Sosa, SS, Alfredo Rodriguez, SS , Wenceel Perez, SS , Livan Soto, SS , Leonardo Rivas, SS , Omar Estevez, 2B/SS,  Wander Javier, SS , Arquimedes Gamboa SS, Jordy Barley SS, Kevin Smith SS/3B Players that I highlighted 1) Wander Javier 60 ARM/60 GLOVE 2) Livan Soto   55 ARM/ 60 GLOVE /50 HIT 3) Leonardo Rivas 60 ARM/60 GLOVE/55 HIT (***BB PROSPECTUS 2020) 4) Arquimedes Gamboa 60 ARM/60 GLOVE /60 RUN 5) Jordy Barley 60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE/60RUN 6) Kevin Smith  60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE https://www.mlb.com/news/rule-5-draft-eligible-prospects-2020   AND DONT BE A TROLL!!  
    • Me either, but apparently they believe Galvis is a significantly better player then he's been over the last few years offensively and the major drop off last year defensively was apparently an aberration, because players normally get better at 31.  I don't hate this move, I just don't see what it does all that much. I think they could have player Sanchez at SS and probably gotten the same defense and allowed Valaika or Urias to play 2B every day to see what they have. But hey, why not bring in a 31-year old with bad defensive numbers last year and well below average stick?
    • I just dont understand why anyone would be excited about this move.
    • It was his first year back calling games in 2020 and unless Garceau started cursing during broadcasts last year, he was always going to be in the fold. 
    • We won 14 games last year and 11 games this year doing exactly what I'm saying, and Lamar won an MVP for it last year.  Brees won 12 games this year without really throwing downfield, including beating the bucs twice in the regular season.  Manning won a super bowl in 2016 without being able to throw it deep.  So no, I'm not wrong.  If you don't think Lamar specifically can succeed with midrange passes then I'd like to know why.  But there are plenty of examples of successful QBs within the past 5 years that didn't rely on deep balls.
