A huge shout out to Tony and Luke

Recommended Posts

I should add, I’ve really enjoyed the “another take” feature this year.   No two people see things exactly alike and it’s really interesting to see how Tony and Luke’s views differ, when they do.

Curious to ask @Tony-OH and @Luke-OH, wanted to see which of the prospects NOT in the top 10 could make the biggest jump this year?  

I'd say it's probably someone drafted last year or a DSL player that made it to the states next year and put up a big year as the best generic candidates.

Hernaiz, Stauffer, and Stowers have that ceiling that suggest they could make a big jump with a great year. Outside of the top 30? Zebron comes to mind, but Luke and I will be putting out additional list with some comments of guys that just missed the list or have some upside, but were too inexperienced/raw to be put on the list yet.

Could not agree more....just a truly tremendous endeavor, and one of the best features of the site. I also love the “another take” feature, which really adds another layer of depth to the analysis. Thanks for all the work, gents.

@Moose Milligan

Regarding his comment, I asked earlier in the process who might be this year’s John Means: The guy who suddenly takes a huge leap and becomes a productive major leaguer.

If I recall, the answer was that Zimmerman was closest to that possibility. 

Is that correct? Or after some time pondering, have you guys come up with someone else who might see that kind of surprising success?

I just finished reading the last of the top 30 scouting reports.     It’s my absolute favorite feature of the Hangout.    The amount of time and effort that goes into preparing these reports is amazing.    They are always insightful and even though I know all the stats, follow these players nightly in the box scores, and read every word written about them here during the season, I always feel like I understand these players’ strengths and weaknesses so much better after reading these reports.    
 

Tony and Luke, I could never rep or thank you enough for putting these together.    Awesome job.   

It’s a ton of work. And they are both so good at it. It’s not just spouting opinions. It requires a year of research to do it they way they do. Going to games. Watching games. Talking to scouts and executive.  A ton of work

This site has been a godsend for an Orioles fan living in California.  I was so happy to stumble across this site and the knowledge and wealth of information of the Orioles, its farm system and baseball in general distributed on this site is incredible.  Thanks to all who contribute here and thanks, most importantly to those that developed and run this site on a daily basis.  It is a great gift to those of us that don't get so see the O's or their prospects in person very often.

Great job.  Can't wait to see what list Lamar Sparks and Jomar Reyes make.  haha

    • All he’s gotta do is stay healthy . No injuries next year . He may not be able to sustain a high obp but neither did Adam Jones . I actually like him better in the corner outfield spot and I think that would be better for over the long haul health wise . I like the defensive alignment of Hayes in left , Mullins in center and Santander in right for now . If Mullins can keep hitting I’d like him in that lineup for now .
    • I was looking for a thread to add a comment about Hays. I've been watching his stats creep up everyday. Glad to see someone started a separate thread.
    • So, $20 mm of value at a price of $3.5 mm?    Yes, I think you could get a decent return for that from a team that has real problems at SS.   Maybe equivalent to what we got for Castro?
    • Hays has always been successful when he gets regular playing time over a decent amount of time. He's probably better suited for LF at Camden Yards than center where he could be a plus defender, but he's fine in center overall. Botjh his barrel% and Hard hit % have been creeping up to MLB avg after being well below average earlier in the year so I think we are just finally seeing what a healthy, in tuned Hays looks like at the plate finally. I still see him as one of the players that will be part of a winning future here.  
    • That’s probably correct, but I bet Mike gets some calls. Remember That a lot of the outstanding shortstops on contending teams are free agents, so those teams you mentioned will be needing somebody.
    • I will never be able to bring myself to root for the team to lose games to improve their draft position.    It’s just not in my DNA.    But when they do lose, I console myself with the thought that at least they improved their draft position.   
    • Agree Hays should be the starter.   As to defense, I’d put Mullins’ ability to get to and catch the baseball in the “great” category, Hays more in the “very good” category.  But Hays has a plus arm and Mullins has a minus one.   So overall, I think it’s about a wash as to who’s the better defensive CF, and Hays is the better hitter.     I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Mullins as a defensive replacement late in games, and occasional starts vs. RHP.
