It's Time - Mountcastle

Recommended Posts

No way! Not when the team ERA is well over 6 and Davis still on the roster. Plus, Trumbo is coming at some point...I'd let him dominate AAA...Has anyone really done that at Norfolk yet?

I would argue it is not time. Only 66 AAA ABs with 17 Ks and a .319 OBP. 

There's simply nowhere to play him. Nunez is entrenched in a breakout year at DH, Davis is being given the year at least, and Ruiz/Alberto are doing well at 3B. Not to mention Mancini's All Star season. 

Let Mountcastle percolate until you cannot ignore him anymore. I'm having a pretty easy time ignoring him right now honestly. Which is good! Let these guys develop. Forget about them until July, at least.

Mountcastle is probably a September call up and maybe sooner if some players get traded or injured for the year.

The thread title implies @weams feels differently.

I thought Elias wants these guys to be fully redeveloped at the AAA level... so most likely not until September.

4 home runs looks nice but the 25% k rate does not. 

There's just nowhere to play him on the ML roster.

As much as I want to see some of the young blood called up, keeping Mountcastle in AAA is the right move.

    • 44,003 for the last three games for 1.3 million.Paid attendance should be close.Really nothing to be excited about but understandable. The last two years the Orioles have lost more games at home then any time ever in a 162 game season.Not sure if it is ever..Mets and Tigers both lost 107 at home consecutively . Tough to watch such bad home team baseball. Still would be the worst average hone attendance since 1978 and of course worst ever at Camden Yards.
    • Do you have a link to this pipeline article?
    • Haha I had totally forgotten.
    • I have the same issues, bad back (and down my right leg) and rotator cuffS. Doesn't wake me up tho. Yes, because of beer I sleep like a baby. I do however wake up start awake many times after 5 or 6 hours. Just from deep sleep to wide awake. I've learned to just get up, fire up my computer and waste some time, Not one drop of coffee. Take my morning drugs, several of which help or cause sleep. Go back to bed in 2 hours or stay up and take a nap in the afternoon. Tossing and turning in bed is never going to be sleep. I can't multi quote it right but I like waking up and having to go to the potty. Every night please! Let's play two! Makes the night seem longer to me.
    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
