TT: Opening Day roster starting to take shape, but questions remain

I think Mullins is the OD CF.  I think Hays gets sent to the minors (wildcard has a stroke) and Mullins gets whatever amount of time to show if he can hack it or not in CF until the time comes to call up Hays when they're done playing the clock game.  

Isn't Wildcard in favor of gaming service time?

I don’t understand playing Santander Opening Day over Stewart unless they see something they really think is real with Santander. He did nothing at AA last year. I know they tweaked some mechanics with his swing but still. 

They need to give Mullins a real long look before they move him off CF.

I think wildcard has been calling for Hays to get the OD start over Mullins lately.

He's pretty resilient, I'm sure he'll be fine.

I think Santander was hurt a lot last year.  I've never been a big Stewart fan but I still think RF is up for grabs.  Until Diaz is ready or they put Hays there.

I hope so, he kinda worries me when he flips out over little things like Trezza making an error in a report.

I am not saying Stewart is anything special but he is older and has played a full year at AAA. Just think this is his time.

I'm a little bummed my off-season extreme longshot didn't come through.

I get it.  I'm not excited about either one of them but I like that Santander has mashed this spring.

If Santander turns out to be a decent player that will be like found money.    He definitely has some power, if he can get his bat on the ball.

Santander I think has a higher upside. I would be happy with a part time DH/ OF role. 

I can’t see him being a good OF with his body type moving forward. Stewart is thick but moves much better.

Yeah, Stewart is a bad body athlete.  Doesn't look like he should be able to move like he can, but he does.  

I'm glad there are some tough decisions to be made this spring.

Other than Davis.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
