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.

    • Back to the Snell/Fairbanks/Anderson/Castillo even numbered game quartet to try and set up Buehler (and Kershaw?) v. The World Wednesday night. The Dodgers have clearly dented the relief aces, but I don't look for any process change in Game 6. This feels like it should be over 4-1 but for the gods putting their thumbs on the scale last night - an excellent bonus baseball gift.
    • You a few others really are missing my point. I'm done trying to make it. Read what I wrote in other posts.
    • Very good game tonight. Both pens were real good. 
    • That fact that he pointed out Anthony Sanders and his race as being the one screwed also made me question it.
    • I'm surprised by this comment, Tony.  I'm not sure how you can blame Elias for Yaz coming out of nowhere to perform as he has for the Giants.  You really think there was reason to expect that Elias should have seen that coming?  Wow.
    • I’m guessing that a claim was probably filed against Elias and the Orioles for pension fraud (possibly by the agent of a coach on the staff that didn’t get the pension benefits), but since MLB approved Holt before the season as one of the 4 coaches designated to receive pension benefits, that’s why this is a non-story.  The quote from the MLB spokesperson said Holt received prior approval from the league and shared it with the MLBPA, so the only possible explanation is that the MLBPA is challenging Holt’s approval since he wasn’t a full-time uniformed coach this year, and that is likely what this botched article by Bill Madden is attempting to convey.  Even if a charge of pension fraud was filed by the MLBPA, or the agent of a coach separate from the MLBPA, it sounds like it’s dead in the water because MLB released a statement saying Holt was approved and there is no ongoing investigation that could result in discipline for Elias/Orioles.     Simply put, Bill Madden did a piss poor job of reporting this accurately, and tried to connect it with the Astros, which is why the article lead with “Ex-Astros” and “fraud” to get readers to click on it.  In reality, all Madden had to do is verify the story with MLB, like our local beat writers did, and he would have been told that this is a non-issue because Holt received prior authorization from the league to receive pension benefits, meaning this was not some covert, fraudulent attempt by Elias to get Holt on the pension plan without going through the proper approval process.  That’s why most of us thought from the very start that this story didn’t pass the smell test, and now we know we were proven correct in that assessment.
