Adley Rutschman 2019

Recommended Posts

If Rutschman does not homer from each side of the plate tonight, as Wieters did in his first game at Frederick, I will consider him a complete failure.

I count five sides, I expect home runs from at least three of them.

Guess people aren't too excited for him.

I went to an IronBirds game earlier this week and the crowd might have been at 25% capacity at best. It’s probably one of the reasons why they sent Rutschman to Aberdeen instead of one of the other affiliates.

I'll admit there was some creative liberties with the photo I posted. It was before in-season ticket holders could get in.

Does Wynns know you are going to see Rutschman play?  😛

You don't get out with a .000 average either.

*shakes head*

Can't get a hit with the bat on your shoulder.

(You should have gone with .000 OBP/OPS)

Nice little ovation for him.  Before getting out on 2 pitches.  Terrible.  ;)

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
