What's with the Yusniel regression?

I dont know but his numbers aren't screaming mastered to me. He really just only started to get hot over the past month. I would like to see him build on his very short season, instead of being aggressive and moving him up. Norfolk has Hays, Mountcastle, Stewart and Williams all playing OF right now anyway. These guys are all going to have a serious battle to get a promotion to Baltimore, except maybe Hays, who should have a spot open for him at CF.

So it is based on your personal floating definition?  Got it.

Right. I admit its a novice opinion. I look at his numbers and dont think a promotion is needed.

I think instead of checking a players level of dominance you should look at if staying longer at the current level will help or impede his progress as a player.  That is part of the reason I want Stewart promoted, because I don't think more time at AAA will do him any good.  I feel the same way about Diaz and AA.

If he goes up it means sitting Williams, Hayes or Stewart.  To me, that is Stewart, but are we ready to declare him a non-prospect?  Of course, we could run a rotating DH.

Stewart's production in Norfolk is on another level,  I agree he shouldn't be there. Thats the logjam the O's will have in the coming years with corner OF's. They cant even make room for Stewart now. But with Smith slumping bad, it should be an easy decision this year.

So, Diaz has OPS'd .831 in June and .988 in July.  Seems like it's time for a promotion to AAA for him - regardless of what they do or don't do with everyone else.

Exactly.

It is neither here nor there, but I saw Diaz a couple games in ST this year and I was pretty impressed.  He certainly looked like what an impact ML hitter looks like to me.  Mountcastle was the only other MiL player I saw live that compared decently to Diaz IMHO and I would have taken Diaz above Mountcastle if forced to make a choice based on what I saw.  I didn’t see Hays live.

Well it sounds like it's more here.  Not as much there.

I'd like to see Diaz in Baltimore this summer however I think we're going to have to wait until 2020 for that to happen.

Diaz was excellent in AA ball before being traded, but hasn't been as good since coming to Bowie. I'm in favor of promoting him. He's been in AA since 2017 and has accrued 683 ABs and hit .284 with an .841 OPS and that's with the regression since coming to Bowie. Also, a pretty outstanding K/BB ratio as well with 149K's to 96BB in AA which is better than what he did in A ball of 151/67.

Either promote Stewart or trade him. He's 8 for his last 38 (.211) and not doing too well at the moment, but he should get a chance somewhere if not here. I think we've given Smith enough time. If not Stewart, maybe Williams, but he's unlikely to be a future piece. Either way, it's time to end the experiment with Smith. He's a liability in the field and not good enough with the bat to make up for it and his arm is getting exposed every game it seems. Guys are running on him without hesitation.

Hays is hot, but I want to see more than 21 games in AAA for him. I'm looking for him next year, Mountcastle too. I imagine we may see both in September in the last year of expanded 40 man rosters.

Diaz 2 for 4 thus far today with 2 doubles and 3 RBI. Up to .263/.338/.491. Eighth in the Eastern League in OPS among players with 200 plate appearances.

Promote this man.

Lets see what they do over the next week. I think it's possible we see a flurry of promotions right after the trade deadline. If Villar or Alberto is dealt, I think we see Wilkerson more in the infield and Stewart or Williams promoted (maybe Hays), opening up a starting OF spot in Triple-A which would allow Diaz to be promoted.

I don't care how well Mason Williams is doing at AAA. His presence on the Tides roster shouldn't prevent Diaz from playing every day at AAA when Diaz is ready. 

Stewart should be in the Majors also, but Mason Williams should should not stand in the way of Diaz getting at-bats at the appropriate level, which at this point I believe is AAA. Finding at-bats for Mason Williams is not a priority.

Diaz had two doubles and 3 RBI today, raising his OPS to .826.    I believe he has 44 RBI in his last 42 games.

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
