Rough start for Chance Sisco

Recommended Posts

Suddenly we got five bats in Norfolk, all knocking on the door: 

Mullins .918

Mountcastle .916

Sisco .903

Stewart .806

Santander .700 (plus a homer in his single game in Baltimore)

At what point do they cut bait on him and move him to first? And if you have to choose between Sisco at first and Mountcastle at first and Mancini at first, who wins?

 

I'll take Mountcastle long term, since I think his bat has the potential to be the best of all three. Sisco is on an eye opening hot streak right now, and his power surge is intriguing.

He's white hot over his last 7 games slashing .536/.618/1.179/1.796 with 5 HRs, 5 BB, and only 3K in his last 34 PAs.

I wonder if the change in balls is causing a spike in offense in AAA?

It's a great question to ask. While I don't think the juiced balls are the reason why the Orioles pitchers are getting barreled so often, but I do think the balls are juiced and we know that AAA is using the major league balls this year.

Yea, I responded to it and everything.  😀

April 18th was a bit early for me to pay a lot of attention to the numbers, really May fifth is too early.

Maybe see where we are toward the end of June.

By June, half the team will be batting .350 with 35 home runs...

Sisco's last 5 games has turned around his whole season. 12-19 with 5 walks, only one K, 5 homers. 14 RBI.  Very good numbers at home and against LHP.  Now, let's just see a larger SSS.  What will he be when this torrid streak ends?

How large can a SSS get before it’s no longer a SSS? ;)

His OPS just jumped .900 with a bullet. If he's still over .900 at the end of May, I'll be impressed. The combination of the power surge and decreased strikeouts has me cautiously excited but I've been burned too many times before.  

I believe in Sisco’s bat, but you can’t put too much stock in a hot streak.   Still very glad to see it and I hope he keeps raking.

    • First of all, the current state of the program absolutely matters and it matters a hell of a lot more than MDs title in 2002. Would those schools out hire?  Maybe..money is important and the Terps haven’t had any. BTw, I meant Texas Tech, not Texas A&M.  Now, we will see what TT does after losing Beard but that’s been a really good program recently. FSU has been a far better program than MD for a solid 5-10 years.  It’s not close.  They have had several first round picks, highly ranked recruiting classes and lots of tourney success, not to mention being one of the winningest programs in the ACC. Your last sentence is just wrong.  The idea that you think it’s clear is absurd. They have limited recent success(especially in March), not much national appeal, no money and no real high end picks to point to in the league recently.     Like I said, the right coach can elevate the program back to what you are saying…but as we talk now, as the job is looked at by recruits, etc…it’s not there anymore.  Things can change.  
    • I'm pretty sure these guys call the Summer Eve's Douche Bowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=522H44ddePQ
    • Being the number one destination by a long shot in an area with top 5 amateur talent still matters. Being in an attractive major urban area still matters. Having top notch facilities and fan base still matters. Leaving the ACC hurt the programs standing.  But there's a reason the school has had such sustained stretches of success in the past.  Even under Turgeon the team was generally a top 25ish team. If you get fired for being generally top 25ish, that's because people have higher expectations for the program.  And they should.  Because the school has all the advantages to be a top 20 team annually.   Now, that's not saying this hire will end up well for MD.  They could conceivably get worse.  But that won't be because of the program's potential.
    • I think you're looking at it the wrong way by placing too much emphasis on the current state of the program.  I of course don't think thry are currently a top-25 program.  But Maryland was able to lure away P5 coaches from schools that are on your list for their last 2 coaching hires, including during a time when they were facing NCAA sanctions.  On top of that, they were really close to luring away a coach (Sean Miller) from a program that I had listed as better than us.  That's fact, not theory.  I don't believe for a second that Turgeon's tenure here dropped the desirability of this job down to where we aren't still close to that level, nor do I think that the other schools closed the gap so significantly that we are worse than all of them.   Let's look at it another way.  If Iowa lost its coach and were looking for a coach this offseason, would they beat us out in terms of hires?  Would TAMU?   Would Alabama?  Would USC?  With Iowa and TAMU I feel very strongly thay they wouldn't. Especially since we already poached one coach from TAMU.  Alabama?  Maybe depending on how much a coach values environment over Benjamin's, but I also don't think Alabama would pay a coach top dollar unless it's someone like Nate Oats and has proven success with the program.  USC?  Only for someone who wants to be in LA.  FSU?  Absolutely not.  Auburn?  similar to Alabama IMO but maybe more tilted in favor of Auburn.  Arkansas?  Debatable as well.   Regardless there are enough schools on this list where I think Maryland comes out clearly ahead in this exercise that I feel comfortable putting this HC position as a top-25 job.
    • Well, Westry is out.  Smith hurt his ankle And Young was sick.  It could mean they just want more depth and that none of them are out. The McCrary thing is interesting.  Wonder if they give him carries tomorrow?
    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
