Give Sisco another Chance

Recommended Posts

Just watched his postgame interview.    He seems much more mature and confident this year.    Also enjoyed hearing about how he worked out with Ruiz every day during “quarantine time.”   Ruiz is another guy who seems a lot more confident this year.

I was down on him, and make no mistake. But he sure is hitting better, his eye Has improved a lot, and his defense Seems to be better than Severino’s

He just looks ready to hit and his bat looks much faster. Really happy with his progress in the box so far this year. Sisco and Adley could be a great tandem for the next great Orioles team. Keep it up Chance!

I would also take a look at him at first base.  With Mancini out for the year let him play 6 days a week.  A couple at catcher and the rest at 1B.  See if his bat can hold up.

As if my year couldn’t get any worse, Sisco starts doing good...

Why is that bad?

if Cisco can have that much of an impact not on his game but others, he will be a valuable asset for years to come. Guy has really sold out on his approach. He is not fooled.

Agreed, it was a good listen, and I think the confidence comes from that they both put in the work.  You can really see Ruiz put in the work in the gym - he looks like a different guy.  It's basically what happened with Anthony Rendon.  Rendon's obviously a higher level talent, and he was always going to be a star, but it wasn't till he started really building his muscles that he became a superstar.  Look at him now vs when he was 25, and there's a huge difference in his upper body.  Rio won't become Rendon, but I think he's a different player than he's been up until this season.  And we're possibly seeing the same with Cisco - though it's not as obvious to me that he's had that kind of body transformation.

Hyde has to play him more.

There is literally no good excuse for not playing him everyday.  He can rotate with Severino between catcher and DH, with Nunez getting the majority of the starts at first base.

    • Talk about "lack of imagination..." -- I'm talking about the ZiPS figures, not Szymborski or the Orioles. Hardly seems worth running the projections over five years if there's so little variation from year to year for each of those players. Maybe I'm just spoiled by wildly fluctuating careers in baseball sim games... or reality itself.
    • Wow, I'm shocked to see we're technically still in it. I basically called it done a couple of losses ago. But how could I forget, it ain't over till it's over! 6 games left, so basically the O's have been in contention for 90 percent of the season. Who'd a thunk?
    • The original intention is to stock up on international players which he’s also done. 
    • Well, we're up against it now.   Toronto beat the Yankees tonight.  There's now only one way the O's can make the playoffs: 1) Sweep the Red Sox 2) Toronto loses three to the Yankees the next three days 3) Seattle loses at least 2 games ([email protected], 4 vs Oak)*     *If Seattle goes 5-1 or better, we would still be OK if Houston loses at least 5 of their last 6 (2vsSea, 4 vs Tex) 4) Angels lose at least 1 more game (2 vs SD, 3 @Dodgers)
    • o   (vs. DEVIL RAYS, 9/21)   deGrom had 14 Strikeouts over 7 Inning Pitched tonight ...... but he was charged with a loss, as his Mets fell by a score of 2-1.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=401226481   For the 2020 season overall, deGrom has a 2.14 ERA and an 0.921 WHIP.   o
    • “Keegan Akin started in the bullpen this year with the Baltimore Orioles but has since moved to the rotation. So far it has been paying off for the Orioles as the rookie has been nothing short of impressive. In four starts Akin has produced a 2.35 ERA, 1.62 FIP, 36.4 K%, and 15.5 SwStr%. What is even more impressive is who he put those numbers up against. In those four starts he has faced the Yankees twice, the Braves, and the Blue Jays. All very formidable offenses.  “The only issue with Akin besides the small sample size is that he lives in the zone a little too much. He has a low O-Swing% of 26.3% which means hitters aren’t chasing him outside of the zone. With command issues stemming from the minors he also might be hesitant to live outside the zone and risk walking too many hitters. This is definitely something we have to monitor.   “Akin’s main strength is his fastball which has above average movement in both vertical and horizontal movement. While it doesn’t have much velocity the movement of the pitch makes up for it. He also places it well trying to place it high in the zone as often as possible. That fastball is paired with a changeup that straight up fools hitters. It comes in 10 mph slower than his fastball with late vertical drop at the bottom of the zone. His changeup currently holds an impressive 20.3 SwStr%. “As for 2021 Akin will be an interesting pitcher to evaluate. A very small sample size alone puts a lot of this into question. But with what looks like a solid fastball/changeup combination he will be worth a shot towards the end of drafts.” https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/analyzing-rookie-pitchers-part-ii/
