CoC can never be wrong so he'll come back and say 105 is his "super high end" velocity or something.

I should have read closer.    “Super”.    So 102 is fast but you need to have gone to plaid to be super?   😂

At one point he had a gear no one else in baseball had.  That is no longer true.

Y'all can act like I don't have a valid point if you like but I'm not wrong, he not what he was.

I understand your point.    But you have to admit your timing to make it was blown up a bit.

Way back in post # 2, I offered my astute analysis of this game.

Don't pitch to Gleyber Torres, I said.  Pitch to Michael Ford, I said.

And Torres ended up taking an 0-for-5 and Ford hit the game-winning home run.  

So much for my brilliant analysis.  😞

That was about as prophetic as my Beat 'Dem Yanks thread title.

Also right.  He's down 3-4 mph.  That's significant.

Not when it’s over 100 mph. He’s still in the top percentile of high velocity guys. And guess what? It’s a very small percentage of guys. That means ML hitters see less of guys who throw that hard and it isn’t easy to hit a guy who throws 88 with good command. With Chapman it’s almost impossible when he has both pitches working.

And that’s not to mention his wipeout slider. Ask Mancini if he thinks Chapman is on his way out.

The velocity drop he’s had since he came into the league is not significant because he’s a better pitcher. Especially since he still regularly touches 100 mph.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
