He shoulda had a career!  He was as good as Delmon Young, didn't have antisocial behavior, and Young got over 4000 PAs in the majors.

But Delmon was scouting to be a true 5 star talent. :) :) :)

Didn't he take a throw to the chest?

That reportedly happened in a spring training game.

Still not a reassuring sight.

Unclear what happened.    Whatever occurred happened in a non-televised spring training game.    It was some kind of play where Yacabonis was throwing to Davis and appeared to catch him off-guard.    No error was charged on the play.     I can’t say it impacts my opinion of Davis’ defense so far this year.   To me, he’s looked considerably better than last year.

It's the new metric. If you looked stupid or incompetent on one play it invalidates the whole body of work.

Between the draft and the majors he must have misplaced three or four of his 80-grade tools.

If the reverse is also true, all I need is one good post.

But his post baseball-playing career is more challenging and rewarding than spending time in the slammer so there is that .... 😍

I had to laugh, when I read that scouting report about Young, it was funny as heck, we discussing the 2003 Draft and Nick.

and this is a good chuckle:

COMMENT: Very athletic LHP with quick arm. Fastball, arm side run. Works in and out with ability to locate. Hard, down, power curveball other strikes pitch. Good arm speed on sinking changeup. Steady improvement. Quiet, all business on the mound with a streak of nasty in him. Can reach back. Doesn't like to lose.

I another universe Nick Markakis is mentioned in the same breath as Adam Loewen and Chris Smith.

    • 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.
