I’d probably mirror their top six.   After that I have some reservations, but their choices are defensible.   

I need to see more from Hays before I am back on board.

I understand that point of view.   A good three weeks doesn’t completely outweigh a disappointing offensive season in AAA.    I’d put him at 4 for two reasons.

1.   I always liked the guy, so I’m biased to believe the offense we saw approximates what we’ll see.

2.   More importantly, I now peg him as a guy who can play a solid CF, as opposed to a guy who is just a solid corner OF who can play CF in a pinch.   Not a gold glover, but solid.

You also want to see more from Elias before you will believe he has full authority to spend the Orioles allotment on international free agents, so we get you. ;)

9 of 10 overlap with OH, with minor differences in the order.   The only difference in Akin (OH #12) instead of Lowther (OH # 8).    Not really a radical departure.

Hays is the new Nolan Reimold. Always on the verge until he gets hurt. 

But he looked like a legit 2-way player - arguably the only 1 on the O's MLB roster.  Reimold was a legit... DH.

I think it’s too soon to put that knock on him.    Hopefully he stays healthy this year and dispels this notion.

Does anyone else find it weird that Hays is ranked ahead of Mountcastle on the BA Orioles prospect list, but Mountcastle is in the BA Top 100 (88) and Hays is not? 

It's almost as if prospect rankings are subjective and somewhat arbitrary!

Only when we don't agree with them.

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
