Our current pace is 49-113... two games better than last year.

They're spoiling us - don't get used to it.

Yeah. :) Semi-interesting is that they were also 19-43 after 62 played last year.

Is there any early favorites to go number 1? I've seen Spencer Torkelson, but apparently he's another 1B type. How does he compare to Vaughn?

I just created a thread that covers the Top Prospects for the 2020 MLB Draft...

Have to admire the Jays promoting Vlad Jr even if it hurts their chances at the #1 pick.

I admire them even more for not leaving him down at AAA the entire season for service time reasons.

I was joking.  I don't think the Jays are purposefully tanking.

I don't know how to post nice little tables, but the run differential isn't close. We're at -133. KC is only -68. So they're theoretically much more competitive on a game by game basis. The next worse run differentials to us are Detroit (-113) and then Pittsburgh (-88). Nobody's really close.

I noticed that as well, but glad you posted it. KC gave us a run for our money in the "race" to the #1 pick last year, and I suspect they and maybe one other team will challenge us for the #1 pick in 2020.

I know some would disagree, but if we're going to be as awful as we are, I hope we get the #1 pick again next year and get as much top-end talent to really assist in the rebuild.

Well, we could tie for worst and win the tie breaker being worse last year.  Dream big right....right?

    • I feel like it is really tough to evaluate the future of a bullpen just because of the unknowns. Who really knows what flawed starter will be thrown to the bullpen and be a stud....I don’t think anyone saw Zach Britton coming. I guess the good news is that when you have the depth the Os are growing, it gives a decent indication that there can be impact arms in the pen.
    • I understand the OP grade of an A, but I would imagine that grade takes into account what our organization was as much as what it currently is. If you compare it to our history, I would agree with the A grade. But comparing to other organizations, I would think a B is probably more realistic. I say this having done zero research to support this comment. Either way, I am happy with the state of the pitching, and think next year will be a big one to see what we actually have.
    • Depth drove that one.  We have the best catching prospect, but not much depth.  Knock on wood, Adley gets hurt/doesn't perform, our grade would drop tremendously.
    • This is a pretty simplistic way of looking at Brocail's body of work - albeit unusual from our best poster. I do not have the time to go into more detail, but I will put out a few thoughts that may have led to a change in our pitching coach - in the absence of looking at a detailed pitcher by pitcher analysis from last year to this year. - I believe our defense was supposed to be better in 2020 than 2019 - something that could have impacted pitcher results. - the removal of Dylan Bundy (2019 ERA 4.79, ERA+ 98) and the addition of Alex Cobb (2020 ERA 4.30, ERA+ 106) - speaking of Mr. Bundy, his improvement in results in 2020 with another organization based on a change in pitch mix (as well as opponents) is not a good reflection on our pitching coach - especially if it were determined that the pitch mix change was something that should have been implemented last year based on available data.  Not sure of the results of other pitchers who left the organization. - also not sure of the improvement of someone like Tanner Scott  from 2019 (ERA 4.78, ERA+99) to 2020 (ERA 1.31, ERA+351!) - what role did Brocail have in the improvement or perhaps in Scott's mediocre numbers last year. My guess is that our GM has made a numbers based decision on Brocail - just as it was pointed out here how bad Flores was in 2020.  
    • So is Brocail done with the O's all together, or could he be reassigned?
    • I don’t get how starting pitching gets an A and catching gets an A-. We have arguably the best catching situation in the sport.
