stupid question....Is one of our DSL teams considered more advanced than the other? or are they the same level?

Same level. I'm not sure how they divide the talent between the teams, but there is some back and forth movement.

Current DSL Leaders:

 

BATTING

One Oriole hitter in top-10 in BA

 

PITCHING

Three Orioles pitchers in the top-10 in ERA

I know the stats don't tell the whole story, certainly at that level, but the O's are well represented on the pitching side.  In addition to their top 3 that you mentioned, they have another 5 or so guys in the top 50 of the league era-wise.

That hitting side is the complete opposite.  Sorted by OPS, besides De La Rosa, who is about 15th overall, the O's don't have another guy in the top 100 it looks to me.

While there may be some environmental factors involved, I think it is safe to say the pitching for the O's in the DSL is more promising.

I like following this Acevado kid.  He seems like the most high profile of our Intl signs.  I've seen a few lists of names to follow in this thread, but can Luke or someone else with some knowledge of our DSL guys put together a "Top 10 Prospects" list of guys to follow in this league?  This list should be based on potential and scouting reports and not stats.

No, I just don't have enough info to do that. Wish I did, but I don't. 

Definitely agree that stats in the DSL don't mean much at all. I'd just suggest following the young players who bat in the top half of the lineups and play up the middle positions. Those are the most likely to be prospects. For pitchers, young players with some size who start games. A 17 year old pitcher might sit 95-98 and be a legit prospect but not be able to throw strikes yet or not have any offspeed pitch yet, but that player is definitely a better prospect than a mature bodied kid who throws 86-88 but has an average breaking ball and fringe changeup he can throw for strikes (that type of player would dominate the DSL).

6'4" Center Fielder who's only 16. Yeah, I'll take that!

    • https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2020/02/cobb-eager-to-make-todays-start-against-phillies.html One of the more interesting starts of the early spring, in my opinion.     Yeah, Cobb will have little impact on the long term future of the Orioles, but 2020 will be a lot more tolerable if Cobb is healthy and pitching at the top of his game.     
    • I'm not sure this was Elias saying he likes Velazquez more than Urena as much as it was him saying he likes the gamble of having both of them with the downside of just Velazquez more than having only Urena.
    • In such a fantasy world, similarly unlikely things could happen like Cobb finishing in the top-3 for Cy Young and Austin Hays and Ryan Mountcastle finishing first and second in the AL Rookie of the Year voting. In such a world, a mid-80 win season may be possible. In a world with no other miracle happening in the season and the rest of the players producing within their likely range of outcomes, the Orioles COULD win enough to avoid 100 losses, but pitching is still the biggest issue.   Now...back to reality where a replacement level season from Davis would be a pleasant surprise.
    • I count myself as a huge JJ Hardy fan, but his offense was up and down.    Yes, Hardy at his best was a better hitter than Iglesias, especially on the power front, but let’s not forget he was a low OBP guy and that two of his final three years for us were far worse than what I’d expect from Iglesias.  Overall Hardy had an 87 OPS+ as an Oriole; Iglesias is at 84 OPS+ for his career.
    • In the minors, off the 40-man roster? Plenty. He could be the utility infielder at Norfolk or start everyday at Bowie. He turns 24 in two days and is still something of a prospect. Certainly more interesting than Angelo Mora who is three years older and the guy he will be replacing at Norfolk or Bowie. Would rather have a guy with a utility infielder ceiling getting playing time at the upper minors than an Org guy like Mora. Last year Jesmuel Valentin and Anderson Feliz combined for 142 games last year at Bowie and Feliz, Chris Bostick, Zach Vincej, and Jack Reinheimer combined for 355 games at Norfolk. That is a lot of playing time that could be available for fringe prospects like Urena rather than org guys.
    • https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/ravens-expected-to-franchise-tag-on-impending-2020-free-agent-pass-rusher-matthew-judon/   It is looking more and more likely that the Ravens are going to go this route.  What could we get back?   His tagged salary is estimated at $16.3M.  The article above seems to suggest that 1 for 1 he would be worth around a 2nd rounder......based on a Dee Ford trade.
    • I just "binge-read" this thread and have to agree with @Tony-OH in that it is a matter of personal preference. I am old enough to go back to Chuck Thompson and Bill O'Donnell and their radio/TV (however limited it was back then) work.  I remember Brooks and Tom Marr and Jon Miller.  I do hear Jon on Sirius and miss his calling of the hames.  I remember the HTS days as well. Sadly, we can't go back.  These moves prove that the team is now listening to the fans (the survey) and are acting on it.  What is evident is that we are all passionate about the Orioles.  Give the newbies a chance, who knows we may like them.  As one who follows the O's minors I know we have some great voices on the farm and it is so good to see Geoff Arnold get the promotion; hopefully Adam Pohl is next. Everyone will find a happy medium to consume the games either on radio or TV...just be happy that baseball is back and continue the wonderful discussions here at Os Hangout.
