Adley so far: 0-8, 1 walk, 5 Ks

Recommended Posts

It would be fitting if the most ‘can’t miss’ prospect since Bryce Harper missed for us.

The aluminum bat makes a huge difference, but that would have been taken into account when making the choice, right?

All amateurs use aluminum bats. It's a drawback to drafting amateur hitters.

I'm fairly certain Adley started out slow last year in the minors too. Like Frobby mentioned the time to get concerned is if Adley can't hit well in A Ball.

He did. I’m just being impatient and a bit paranoid. Probably just a case of nerves for the young man in his first ML ST.

I get it, I'm hyped up on Adley too.

Not too worried, but I’d be happier if he were hitting like Andrew Vaughn (.364/.553/.727 through yesterday in 16 PA).    

That's also double the PA Adley's had, if that's worth anything.

I thought some college conferences used wood and some used aluminum, I didn’t know they all used aluminum.

You know who tore up the minors? Matt Wieters. It's way too early to be concerned about him. 

Wieters is a good player. If he had picked #1 overall he would probably be an average #1 overall.

I have thought since I first saw video of Adley last year that something was amiss.

I know he was sick and I certainly understand that, but this guy is supposed to be the ultimate can't miss, and to be honest he misses a lot....of pitches.

Not sure what people see in him so far, but if this guy was drafted in the 10th round?  People would be saying he has little to no shot based on what we have seen so far.

I am glad Tony spoke up about this.....it encouraged me to create an account and post about it because I had been thinking the same thing as he is.

We should sticky this post. It will be absolutely hilarious to read for a long time. 

For example... “Damn.  Remember how bad things were back in 2020?”

    • With two games to play, the Orioles could still end up picking anywhere from 3rd to 10th. To pick 3rd they would have to lose their final two games while Boston and Detroit win their final two games and Washington wins one of their final three games. We currently have the sixth pick as we jumped Arizona yesterday to move up from seventh. If we were to win our final two games we could drop to 10th with one win by Arizona and two wins by Kansas City, Colorado, and Seattle.

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.
