O's also seem to be the only team where without intersquad game footage other than a view videos posted by Roch. I can't find any. 

Posted where? Twitter? I haven't seen 'em.

What jumps out to me is the absence of Ryan McKenna.

Not joining Mullins on this round of additions, he is the only 40-man roster member not in the player pool.

Considering they are playing ghost outfielders in the intrasquad games, his absence is notable.

 

Note: I deleted the other thread,  makes more sense here.

Maybe he's like Santander and DSJ? hush hush

Just noticed. The Baltimore Orioles youboob channel avatar, the Bird has a mask "ON". 😛

This has always been my biggest sticking point with Mountcastle. Everyone else disagrees with me every time I bring up my reservations about RM, so I concede that I am wrong. But I'm having trouble getting over this.

Prove me wrong, Ryan.

In all of MLB history there have only been five seasons where a 1B/LF/DH with less than 30 walks and less than 10 steals had a 5+ WAR.  And only 13 with four+ wins.

To be a 5 or 6 win player In today's offensive environment Mountcastle is going to have to OPS something like .950 (which will require hitting well over .300) unless he unexpectedly is a really good LFer.

Jace Peterson had himself a year last year, he hadn't OPS'ed more than .734 at any level since 2014. Crazy year, I was curious to see what he would do this year, but I can't imagine he will get much playing time if he does make the Brewers. He is "only" 30, he could bounce around AAA for a few more years and maybe get another cup of coffee or two.

Sisco has some power, 18 homers between Norfolk (10) and Baltimore (8) last year in under 400 plate appearances split evenly between the two levels. He has a good approach at the plate, with a walk rate over 10 percent at both levels. His hard hit percentage with the O's was above average at 41.5 percent.

If he could be even average defensively he could be a sold second division starting catcher / top backup. I still haven't given up on him and I don't think he was much worse defensively than Severino last year.

That's one of my Ryan Mountcastle risk factors.  Can you trust anyone's 2019 AAA numbers?  Jace Peterson is still a guy who'll OPS .674 in the majors.

Good luck on ANY of those.

Has anyone suggested he’d be a 5-6 WAR player?     I’ll be pretty darned happy if he manages to be a 2-3 WAR guy.

That could be the case with Yusniel Diaz. His absence is probably more glaring the McKenna since he was still on the roster when camp broke.

I suppose the last couple prospect threads have graded him out to average regular (50 grade), which would be about a 2-3 WAR player. Looking at guys in AAA with strikeout/walk issues, or IL MVPs... they aren’t star studded lists of players and most haven’t stuck. He has youth on his side, still time to work on selectivity.

Mountcastle is definitely going to have to walk a little more to be a true impact player. He had 10 walks over his last 27 games of the season last year batting .311/.381/.573, and obviously it is something he is aware of, so hopefully he can maintain that approach. That more than anything is why I wanted him to be called up in September.

Unfortunately he only had 14 walks the rest of the season. He had more walks in August than he had in May, June and July combined.

    • Cobb in his postgame interview was solid and doesn't want to be traded. When told Palmer thinks he could be dealt if he continues to pitch well he had a change of facial expression like he was upset. He thinks their team is real and are in every game and likes it here.  The perfect answer after giving the team  basically nothing so far on his big contract. If he keeps going around 6 innings and giving up 3 runs or less he will be in demand and will be dealt. We have too many young pitchers ready to move up and they will  move his salary the first chance they get to a money team like the Dodgers, Angels or even the Red Sox. 
    • Ben predicts pitches regularly and is very informative. Is Ben on all of the shortened season games? I hope so. He is awesome! I think somehow he is helping the players and coaches. Not illegally just being around. Scott doesn't have much enthusiasm but think he will get better. I think no fans makes him that way. Ben is fantastic and holds things together.  Change is good!
    • I agree with everything said. The cutouts and noise will keep the players from getting bored or falling asleep.
    • Can't say I've been enjoying the commentary. Garceau has the same mispronunciations and inaccuracies as Thorne but without any of the energy and excitement. Ben McDonald just goes on about productive at-bats and bunting like it's 1990. Palmer had a little bit of that too, but he seems to have kept up with the advances in the game more, despite being 20 years older. The one positive is that McDonald identifies the pitches correctly and is pretty good at describing a pitcher's repertoire.
    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
    • I like it.     Thought it was really a fun vibe in Philly.    I like their phony crowd noise too, complete with random horn blasts.    Overall, I think the sound engineers are getting better at what they’re doing with experience.
