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!

    • It's not hard at all to put *BACK* on 25 lbs in 4-1/2 months. Especially for an experienced lifter with a trainer and nothing else to do all winter.
    • So from this link it looks like some of the preseason games which do not have radio broadcasts on 105.7 are listed as "Radio:  mlb.com".   I remember last year Melewski did a bunch of games that were online only and not over the airwaves.   I wonder if this is the same thing.   That would include the opener vs Atlanta Saturday. https://www.mlb.com/orioles/schedule/2020-02/list https://www.mlb.com/orioles/schedule/2020-03/list
    • The point I've been trying to make is that if he put on 25 pounds all of it isn't going to be muscle.  If you want to suggest that he put on 25 pounds and his body fat stayed consistent I'm fine with that.  It is more accurate to just say he gained 25 pounds, which is what he appears to be doing.
    • Yes, any trainer.  If he is putting in two workouts a day of heavy lifting, every day, a pound a week is achievable.   Being a gym rat has nothing to do with muscle size.  It also has to do with genetics, that's why teams looks for projectable players and whether they can add size or not.  Billy Hamilton is one who could spend days in the weight room and not be size of chris davis.  He can still put on muscle mass, but his body buildup is different.   I genetically have tree trunk thighs, I, from experience, cannot lift legs for months, but give me one month in the gym of leg work my legs are built as heck and I'm squatting 3-400 pounds.  I'm not making stuff up, while not a certified trainer, I have played on Coast Guard rugby team that placed 2nd in all Armed forces tournament, so I have worked with trainers, physical therapists, and those in the profession. As to the protein, I get piss tested being a service member and there is a list of banned substances just as in baseball and I steer away from the products that have crap in them anyways cause its generally garbage, as there are hardly any FDA regulations on these products and the claims they make aren't always true.   
    • IMO, one of his assets is his ability to work analytics into his broadcast. And he does it in a nonintrusive, almost inconspicuous manner (which is helpful for analytics semi-novices like me). 
    • If Mountcastle begins the season in the minors there is room for Smith on the 26 man roster.   He has an edge over Wilkerson because Smith is on the 40 man.   When Mountcastle is called up I would think Smith will be optioned depending of who is injured at the time. I still think Mountcastle gets most of this at bats a 1B.   Mancini  beginning the season at 1B and moving back to right field when Mountcastle is promoted.   With Diaz the RFer of the future I just don't see the reason to have  Mountcastle spend much time learning the outfield.
    • I miss Joe Angel (duh). I’ll actually miss Jim, too, despite the beating he seems to take from many here. For me, he's the voice of the Orioles, almost literally since I was born. The “modest 2-game (whatever) streak” I found to be almost an endearing quirk of sorts. He’s been a loyal soldier – hopefully the new role won’t marginalize him too much. Don’t know much about Garceau as a PBPer; I vaguely remember him calling Ravens games back in the day. He’s been out of the booth for a long time, so it’ll be interesting to see how quickly he re-acclimates himself. Sort of related, I’m glad Weinman is getting (what I think is) a better time slot. I’m not a daily listener of 105.7, but I always tend to stick around whenever he’s on. He knows his stuff, is passionate about his teams and has no qualms about speaking his mind about them, good, bad, or so-so. And does it in an engaging way, if that makes sense.
