Sarasota Notebook 3/3-Updated Throughout Day

.4 seconds is quite a bit to beat the second place guy in a sprint. Wonder if the coach was a hare off in starting the watch?OIP.ir7NTGB9y7I33a6pyHi0CgHaEn?w=273&h=1

I have a request, a lot of these guys I’m not familiar with, and I am presuming that they are just organizational filler or very young guys who haven’t really started to make a name for themselves. Would it be too awkward to ask you to identify guys? The first time you identify the guy you could say in parentheses AA or A or filler or something like that?

Actually, if you could just share the link to where we could look these guys up, that would probably be a timesaver for you. It’s surprising how many these guys I have never heard of.

Pretty funny and I agree.  It’s reasonable to assume that.  Mase on base can absolutely fly.  The coaches/players were all audibly impressed.  He got to second from first so fast it’s like a blink.  Fans should flock to his games to watch his quickly developing skills.  Also, today is his birthday so maybe he’s revved up.

Philip I’d be glad to.  Thanks for letting me know and one of the reasons I decided to do this was to let fans know a little bit more about these players.  I’m happy that you want more.  
It is my responsibility to fill you in as much as I can and let you judge for yourself, I’m glad for the feedback.  
To be honest, I’m familiarizing myself with this group too and guys keep checking in so the list only grows.  I’ll do my best to provide bios/details as I can for you.  Other intelligent posters can fill in the gaps too.  
 

In a year or two, if I do my job well, you’ll know a little more about these guys than you do today.

Really like the updates, Eric. Thanks!

You’re welcome.  It’s a wonderful baseball environment and I’m happy to share what I see for you.  It would be great if every fan could take in what’s going on here so that’s my mindset and I try to share everything I can.

Click this link and scroll down to “organizational batting” or “organizational pitching.”    It gives alphabetical listings of every player in the organization as of the end of 2019, including the levels they played at and their combined stats.

It won’t include players who weren’t with the organization in 2019.

Thank you, I have bookmarked it. I wonder why these guys hang around? We’re not getting paid anything, literally a guy Working at Walmart makes more money.

these guys truly have the love of the game in their blood, and some would pay to play, if they could afford to.

ScOtt, you've been on our site since I believe the late 90s. You can not tell me that you just started using BB ref. I refuse to believe that from a longtime Hangouter. :D

Question for @Eric-OH about Rom - any idea where his fastball was topping out, and did you see him use his rumored new pitch in (simulated) game action?   Rom happens to be a guy I glommed onto during his GCL season in 2018 (I think I ranked him 15th in my personal rankings that winter), so I’m hoping he continues to progress and prove me right!

I have reason to look for the same stuff.  The guys with the guns were gone by the time he pitched so no on the speed.  I’d estimate that maybe two pitches I saw had clear split like action.  I sit 15-18 feet behind the fence (!) and centered. One was in a hittable spot low but got a swinging strike.  The other one buried at the hitter’s toes and also got a swinging strike. What I see is he’s tough on both sides but lefties just might not see enough to judge the path/spin.  I’ll find out some way to get digits on him because you’re not the only one who is curious.  
 

I’m not putting him at number one with a bullet, but your speculation might be on track and he’s making progress.  Other guys are more on and warmed today, but he is not and his results are noticeable.  
Every starter got one ‘inning’ but when he came off he wanted some more-hungry!

So even though the umps had just left they gave him a few more batters to get through.  He operates with a calm and confident demeanor.  Not rattled when he misses location.  Seems like a very nice guy but out there to perform.  I’ve seen nothing but positives.

Not every guy looked the part in the O’s orange uniform. He seemed to fit in pretty well.

    • Some thought passing thru my addled brain reminded me of this classic. By the HOFers.  
    • You have called Mike Elias a liar several times in your posts in the past few days. You have repeatedly said this was a bad decision. You are entitled to your opinion, as we all are. Despite several posters trying to explain the logic to you intelligently, you remain steadfast in your criticism and that any opinion you do not share is not legitimate. The opinion of 30 major league teams is that he is not worth his projected arbitration salary. Is that legitimate?  I am done. We have beat this to death. Down arrow me again, I dig it. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I think we should argue with other people for a while. I need space. 😂 
    • I'd like the see the quote where Elias said that ownership was not allowed him to spend for Cozart  or anyone else.  The context would be interesting. Its isn't happening because its not part of Elias' rebuild model which is similar to the Astros.     Spending is part of your desired model.  I understand that.  But Elias is building a talent base first with young cheap players.  He will spend when its time to compete and he has holes. Right now he is still waiting on Adley.  He needs at better 2B and 3B and better starting pitching to compete the way he wants to in the future.   This stuff in coming but it not here yet.  Rodriguez, DL Hall, Gunnar, Westburg.   They are all part of Elias' plan.  And those guys will be cheap for a while.   I doubt seriously that ownership told Elias to cut Nunez.   Its more likely that Elias wants to develop Santander, Mullins, Hays, Diaz, and Mountcastle  to be part of the next contending team and needs the at bats to accomplish that.
    • Saying there hasn’t been evidence is just wrong. They values saved money over quality back in the 2018 deals. Elias essentially came out and said ownership wouldn’t allow the deal the Angels and Giants did where the Giants bought a prospect to take on Cozarts deal.  Elias said he would like to do something like that but basically isn’t allowed. And you absolutely can still spend money when you are rebuilding.  You don’t do it poorly of course but there are plenty of opportunities out there that isn’t happening and I don’t believe for a second Elias would be letting those deals go by if ownership allowed him to do what he wants.
    • Its appear your hatred for the Angelos family is impairing your judgement.  There is no evidence that ownership is holding back Elias spending.  What has happened over the last two years is just what happened in 2012-13 with the Astros rebuild.  First tear down.  Trade establish players for prospects.  Then build back with younger, cheaper players.  It was not until year 3 that they spent 30m on Scott Feldman.   Of course the Astros did not have to content with Davis' huge contract nor the loss of revenue from a pandemic.    We really have not reached the point where ownership should be spending in the rebuild.  But its coming.
    • I never said he’s an idiot. I also said I don’t believe it’s his decision. It’s the cheap ass ownership group that we unfortunately have to deal with.  I do think Elias is giving us GM speak as to reasoning why the decision was made.  Seeing as every single GM in the history of time does this, it’s not a leap to say this.
    • I think I first read the “Mauer with Power” line in Sports Illustrated’s Spring 2010 baseball issue, the year after Wieters debuted.  But the article said he’d been called that in the past, before Mauer hit 28 homers in 2009. https://www.google.com/amp/s/vault.si.com/.amp/vault/2010/03/15/the-total-package-rare-bird
