Recommended Posts

My son and his girlfriend are at the Nationals/Yankees game today.  They may end up seeing the last MLB game of the season.

Strong chance of not having a season, IMO. 

2 weeks seems wildly optimistic, but I don't mind them reassessing. It's the same as calling it indefinite, IMO, since they gave themselves the wiggle room. 

I like to think baseball will happen this year. I think it will.

I'd like to think that it will, too.  I hope it does.  I'd be ok with a very short season, too.  It'd be better than nothing.

Are minor league camps being shut down too?   And organized minor league baseball?

The Appy League and Florida State Leagues should be good to go, they draw like 133 fans a game.

I think the two weeks, is just a ploy to give them additional time to sort through the details, and to see how this pandemic is doing.

One could argue that for the O’s, the shorter the season the better!    But I certainly don’t feel that way.

Less of a chance to lose 100 games.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
