He has a bad body, so the expectation is that th defense and speed are bad, but the scouting doesn't really bear that out.

He certainly does not look fast, but I have read that he has average speed.

He's the opposite of someone like Jones, or even Davis back in the day.  They look so smooth out there that they seem faster and more athletic than they are.  Stewart looks like a big bag of awkward.

How do you not know about Statcast?  You have Tony on ignore?

Shouldn't it be I'll let your grammar slide for now?

No, because I’m not the only one who ignores your grammar… And I doubt anybody else mentions it either.

Is there a section here for defense? I’m not seeing it.

Yes I’ve heard that he runs faster than he looks, and according to baseball savant.com, he has approximately average speed. Wow, that’s just great. I wonder if baseball savant also knows the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything…(Notice the Oxford comma?)

Not enough ML data to amount to anything, I suggest you look up scouting reports.  Plenty of in-house ones to peruse.

Kind of interesting who goes to make room.

The O's need 13 pitchers, so I think that alignment stays in place.

Of course,  Severino and Sisco will stay.  They need 2 catchers.

Davis, Mancini and Villar are probably safe because of  veteranocity.

Martin has to stay as a Rule 5 guy.

Alberto, Peterson, Nunez are out of option and have to go through waivers.

Santander deserves to stay more than Stewart.

Wilkerson has a 810 OPS vs righties

Ruiz was sent down for 16 days and if he is sent down for 4 more he loses his option for next season.

The easy way out is to option Stewart until Sept 1st.  Either that or DFA Peterson.  JMO

It's the Orioles. Someone will need to go on the IL the day before he comes back.

He doesn't have enough data for 2019, but in 2018 his sprint speed according to Statcast was 27.6 ft/sec. That's actually above the MLB average of 27 ft/sec. He has slightly above average speed.

The easy way out is to finally cut Davis. It’s now reached the point where he’s taking a roster spot from someone more deserving.

That and this isn’t Buck’s team, veteranosity isn’t a thing.

Maybe the cut back to 12 pitchers until Sept 1st.

Clank

I remember Clank, but he did give us 10.7 WAR in his first three years. If DJ can contribute that, he's worth starting overall.

    • I have to be honest and admit that I hated the Jackson pick. I didnt think Jackson was or could be a good passer. I am really impressed with his growth as a player. I also thought he was predisposed to running 1st. I am impressed with where we are as a team and much of that is because of the elite athletic ability of Lamar. I still think he's exposed to a cheap shot by a defensive player too often and think a leg injury will end his career. but I am enjoying where we are and the way the team is playing!
    • Thought it would be interesting to look at what people are thinking now.
    • Our defense was key in this victory! Great game by the team and Mr Jackson and his offense. Our defense will be a top 5 before the season is over
    • I think the answer to all these game polls going forward have the same answer.
    • Does anyone else think this 2019 team is a better team than either of our Super Bowl winning teams?      
    • In the 1920s the International League Orioles were probably among the top 10 professional teams in the world.  Jack Dunn refused to sign affiliation agreements.  He had all stars and Hall of Fame caliber players in their prime.  But eventually he was pressured by the rest of the league into caving.  The PCL made a little run in the 1950s at going independent and hinting a going major, but expansion and the Dodgers and Giants put an end to that.  Besides the relatively low-level indy leagues today there haven't been real minor league pennant races in my lifetime.
    • It's premature to say that the MLB draft is moving to August.  MLB wants to move it after the College World Series.  Some have speculated that August makes sense as a date in August would eliminate the need for short-season A teams.   Logically, it makes no sense to mandate which minor league teams will be axed although "leaking" a list may encourage towns on the fence to up their facilities.  How up to date are the facilities in Frederick? It location is great.  Organizations such as the Orioles/Astros that are big on machine learning, regression models, and neural networks are more likely to be on board with this plan while organizations such as the Cubs/Yankees that have the resources to have a more balanced approach may have  misgivings. During the past season the Cubs had 300 players under control.  This new plan would lessen that number by at least 100.  Youngsters that are unable to make the jump from the DSL or HS to full-season ball may stay at their respective complexes and play unofficial games against other organizations throughout the summer as opposed to until the draft as in past years.  One advantage is that it will be easier to evaluate prospects with fewer non-prospects in the mix, although you could argue that 20-year old prospects benefit from playing with 25-year old non-prospects who know the little things but have limited tools. The great statistics put up by top prospects during their first ML seasons in recent years suggests that top prospects may be spending too much time in the minors.  More rapid promotion for a select few is likely with a thinner pool of players.  It is also possible that AAA will be more like AA is today, i.e., the place for top prospects.   Independent leagues comprised of released players could fill the role that AAA has today - although this will depend on the details of the next ML agreement.  I've also heard that some teams would prefer a shorter season so that their prospects could spend more time in their respective pitching/hitting labs.
