Intial post in the thread updated:

   -- Notes from last night's intrasquad game, including the best [statistical] pitching performance of the intrasquad games by Tommy Milone

   -- Roster moves:  Martin to 45 day IL, Hector Velazquez assigned to minor league camp 2.0 in Bowie which opens Thursday, Kremer added to 60 man pool but immediately assigned to Bowie camp; Blach removed from 60 man pool

This necessitated creating a new category for the players who are in the Bowie camp.  It is right after the list of players who are in the Camden Yards camp, and before the list of guys on the 45 man IL.

I also had to create a new category for Blach, as he has been removed from the 60 man pool but as far as I can tell he has not been placed on any type of IL.

And then immediately updated again:

   -- Santander reports to camp

   -  Minor league camp opened in Bowie and in addition to Kremer and Velazquez who had already been assigned there, 6 more guys reported there today.   There are now 52 guys on the 60 man pool, 44 in Baltimore and 8 in Bowie.

    • I don’t think we saw enough of Valaika defensively at 2B (73 innings total) to draw any conclusions about whether he’s better than Alberto.    I tend to doubt he is, but I don’t really have a strong view about it.     I thought Valaika did a nice job with the bat, and in particular, showed more power than I would have expected.   I’m not sold that he’s a .791 hitter, but he showed enough to hold his 40-man spot this winter.    
    • my takeaway from 2020 is Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Kremer, and to lesser extent Mullins.   Santander and Iglesias did good things.  Means finished strong.  Hope.
    • Joe West and Angel Hernandez asked me to say hello for them.
    • Thanks for sharing that.  Don’t believe I’ve heard Martyn before.  Now, I’d like to hear the Foo Fighters cover it.
    • The great increases in homers and strikeouts have occurred in the last few years. I think it may be because the players are practicing putting backspin on the balls when they hit them. The backspin will make the balls travel farther, but it's also harder to put backspin on a baseball by hitting it. If you watch Sports Center when they are showing highlights of homeruns, they usually show in slow motion some of the batters' swings. If you see this from the camera angle that is near the dugout facing the batter, you can see that the batters are swinging using a downward angle. The downward angle will put backspin on the ball(if it is hit just right). It's also harder to hit the ball when your swing has that angle. So if the batters hit the pitches just right, the balls will have backspin and if those balls are in the air they will have more of a chance of going over the fence. But it is also harder to make contact with the pitch, which makes an increase in strikeouts inevitable.  Analytics have made the old idea of the level swing just something in the memories of us old-timers.
    • I like games when balls are put in play.  Mountcastle puts balls in play.  I like Ryan Mountcastle. 😉
    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
