That's fine. Taking walks it taking walks. Even if you're pitched around it shows you're being a little more selective.

Sure.  Certainly don't want him swinging at junk.

Yeah you would. If you were one of those players, you'd understand how the business works instead of making armchair calls from your house. 

They need to change the rules so that  this doesn't happen anymore.  Base free agency on age of the player that way it doesn't matter.

And that would destroy college baseball.

There's isn't a good, simple, fair system. The current service time system is their attempt to thread the needle.

Here's a take from a scout of another organization.   Some positive, some negative.

Quote

 “First base is the least painful to watch of all the positions that he plays, but he can hit and hit when it counts. Maybe he is going to be the right-handed Big Papi. He’s with an AL club, let him DH. I know he loves to hit. I don’t think he works his ass off as much as he should, definitely not defensively, and that’s probably why he is where he is. But there’s some real upside there to be a pretty strong offensive player. He’s got power; he’s gonna hit 25-30 homers in the big leagues. And the one thing I’ve always loved about him is he can turn it up a notch in an at-bat when it counts the most. I’ve got him as a plus major league hitter, .290 to .300 or something.”

This team has so many flipping DH's.  How in the world do we fit them all.  I don't think Elias loves the idea of Mancini / Stewart / Mountcastle in the outfield.

More of a Wilkerson fan?

I see the Wilkerson in CF thing as a pure desperation play.   We literally have no good options.  Or at least that's what Elias seems to think.

It's probably two years or more before we really care if the Orioles' outfield is optimized for contention.  That defensive outfield is ugly, but it's not like that's the thing keeping them from 88 wins in '20.  Things like this have a tendency to work themselves out.

It really seems like we should sell high on Mancini this offseason. Obviously Davis will be cut during or after next season.

Sounds like a good article in general.    Who else did the scout evaluate?

Harvey, Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Zimmermann, Bannon, Tanner Scott, Hess, Phillips, Tate, Ortiz and Cervenka,

Highly recommend The Athletic, great deal for $30 or $36 a year, depending on which promo code you use.
