So it’s possible a player could receive ROY votes this year and still be eligible next year....
MLB needs to say anyone who qualifies for rookie status next year is ineligible this year.
Also I have been saying for years they need to extend the voting. Should have at least go from 3 to 5 places in the voting system. Would create more recognition for players.
I did not think Z had good command last night, but it’s premature and wrongheaded to put him in the same sentence as Daniel Cabrera, who walked 5.2 per 9 in the majors and 4.6 per 9 on the minors. Z walked 3.2 per 9 in the minors. I realize that a pitcher can have decent control but poor command, but Cabrera proved over many years that he had little idea where the ball was going, to an extent few Oriole pitchers ever had. There’s no way I’m putting Z in that category given his track record. I know that’s not exactly what you were saying, but I wouldn’t even propose it as an analogy because they are completely different types of pitchers.
(And Drungo, sorry for the Z thing but Zimmermann is a lot to type.)
LF Hays made a nice catch for Zimmerman.
In Game 1 Mountcastle could not quite get an early count foul pop by Meadows in a PA that I think ended up a 10 pitch walk. I don’t think OAA reads that foul ball but it did seem like one some LF could get. Long way but also big hang time.
