HR on his 3rd at bat! 

 

That camera angle is absolutely terrible. You can't see the flight of the ball at all.

Yeah, agreed. But I'm happy to be able to see this, regardless.

I bought tickets to the Ironbirds game on Tuesday, hoping that will be his debut!

Good idea. Have to think it happens.

Fingers crossed. Even if he isn't up yet, I am excited to see the new draftees especially the Stanford trio, and the Red Sox have three potential top 10 players at Lowell in Antoni Flores, Nick Decker and Cameron Cannon.

This is the first GCL footage I've ever seen - I'll take it.  As much as it is exciting to see Rutschman, seeing the blurry grass dirt border - man, that's a new level of low minors.

    • Outfield is such a delicate balance. There were a couple years where Markakis could handle anything off the scoreboard or near the grounds crew bench and Jones had a terrific ability to range back to the 410 in center. I’m not sure what the metrics say about it, but outfield seems to have a lot to do with who is next to you, especially with those two.    Santander was fun to watch this year, I can’t remember him making a bad play. 
    • The competition in CF is pretty fierce. 
    • There is an excellent article published yesterday in the Athletic about the Chicago Cubs "laying off 100-plus employees".  The article talks about how generous the Cubs ownership was four years ago during their championship run to fly employees and spouses or guests to/from Cleveland to witness their WS history, how the organization ordered 1,908 championship rings and pins for players, coaches, executives, ballpark staff, etc.   Very recently, the Cubs laid off over 100 employees across pretty much the entire business operation as well as the baseball (scouting, player dev, international ops) operation.  The article mentions the White Sox, Red Sox, NY Yankees, Cardinals, Phillies, Angels and SF Giants as among the teams that "enacted cost-cutting measures like layoffs, furloughs, salary reductions and buyout packages". The article says the "Cubs are claiming $140M in revenue losses this year and projecting $120M in lost revenue next year."   I will say these clubs represent bigger markets and probably had bigger operations headcount and costs heading into the pandemic and, in the absence of local sold out stadiums, may be experiencing bigger losses than the Os.  Teams are hurting financially all over the league.
    • Defensive stats are all over the place. And some are more important for one position than for others, of course. Which ones are the most revealing? I personally care less about range, which can be assisted with good intel and preparatory placement, than I do about being sure handed, and I’m more interested in accuracy on throws than brute strength. So what are the best defensive stats? 
    • I kind of like the fact that the signing date has been pushed back to Jan. 15, maybe permanently.    It’s something interesting to look forward to in the dead of winter now.    One thing that isn’t clear is whether the age cutoff is changing (i.e., the date by which the player must turn 16 in order to be signed).    I’m assuming it hasn’t changed because otherwise this year there would be seven months worth of players that teams would have no money to sign, having already committed their money to the guys turning 16 before J2.
