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.

    • You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by.
    • I was going to ask what makes him toolsy besides the power but Hoosiers post suggests he has speed and can go get the ball.  Sounds like the arm is average at best.  Is there any chance he's a potential CF?
    • I went for more accomplised over shiny new thing, so Bannon/Zimmerman.  However, something about Stauffer intrigues me, age, size, K's, under the radar. His is the only name I was surprised to see in the poll so I kinda hope it's him.
    • What TV revenue? The TV networks pay what they pay for postseason games.   National coverage of regular season games does nothing but fill air time and gets very low ratings.   In a typical season a nationally televised NFL preseason game will get higher ratings than nearly any regular season MLB game.   Fox & TBS pays MLB for the All Star Game and the postseason, they would probably not care if they didn't broadcast any regular season games because no one watches them.   Most baseball fans watch their local team every day.   ESPN is the same except that they do need something to fill programming hours on their networks so they have a little more motivation to broadcast regular season games.   But for the most part, the national TV contracts exist for the postseason.   And MLB knows it so they will try to have as short a season possible because they know Fox & company will still ante up almost as much.   Cut the season in half and Fox will still pay 90% of what they pay now because all they really want is to broadcast the big games in October. Yes, the local TV revenue exists.   Except in a lot of cases (Balt/Wash, NYY, Bos, many others) it's a team owned network paying the team for the games, so it's just a paper transaction. A higher chunk of MLB revenue comes from actual attendance than any other major sport.   So it's the one sport where the owners have a strong motivation for a shorter season.  
    • I disagree that he's so important that a team would have to overpay for him to be dealt.  He's still pretty much the same guy the O's got on the cheap last year. Anyway, bad defense encourages the pitchers to strike batters out!
    • @Tony-OH Just another quick thank you for the time and effort of doing this.  Makes my lunchtime reading very enjoyable!
    • Because I the idea of a good, veteran defensive SS anchoring the infield while we--hopefully--feature a very young pitching staff next year getting their feet wet at the Major League level. I am not a fan of Velazquez and am skeptical about Martin. I guess you could sign someone like Hechavarria, but it's going to be hard to find a good defensive shortstop that is not completely useless at the plate for the cost of Iglesias (and we certainly aren't going to pay any more than that for someone for next year, nor should we).  With the young pitching, I want to give them as much as possible to succeed. To me, that means good defense up the middle and at least some offense. I don't want them always expecting to have to be nearly perfect to have a chance of getting their team a win. Having some wiggle room from time-to-time, in my estimation, is helpful. Of course, I don't have data to back that up, but that's my thought.
