Roch on the OF situation

Final tallies:

Santander 165 PA, .890 OPS, 1.3 rWAR, 1.5 rWAR

Mullins 153 PA, .723 OPS, 0.4 rWAR.

Mountcastle 140 PA, .878 OPS, 0.5 rWAR

Hays 134 PA, .722 OPS, 0.7 rWAR

Stewart 112 PA, .809, 0.6 rWAR

The Santander injury was unfortunate, but Hyde did a nice job of using the opportunity spread the playing time around.    Now we go into next season with all these guys having had a taste of semi-regular playing time in the majors. That’s a nice spot to be in.   

It’s really important to not talk about these guys without also discussing their defense, because defense is really important and as we saw with Trumbo, bad defense can wipe out good offense.

Stewart made an honestly great catch last night, and he’s faster than he looks, so he might be ok, though Santander my RF for now. Mullins has no arm, but being able to get to and catch the ball is paramount. Hays needs to stay healthy. I’d rather have MC learning first. He hits, but his glove is something to write home about.

Yes, I included the WAR figures because they tell you something about their defense.   Obviously there is more we could say about that and I think I made a post within the last two weeks citing Rtot, Rdrs, UZR and OAA for all of them.   To me Hays is the best all around defender of the group.   Mullins covers a bit more ground but has nowhere near the arm Hays does.   Santander is solid enough and I think Stewart and Mountcastle are below average.   It’s going to be interesting if and when Diaz gets called up because I think he’s at least average and maybe a bit better defensively.

And...Stewart's good catches and a few Mullins + Hays days late got the Orioles up to 9th (this is perhaps the same thing Mountcastle/Kremer will do for the FARM rank).

If Yusniel is actually any good, it could be fun to see what Hays/Mullins/Diaz could do, with Mountcastle/Santander 1B/DH.

    • My kids now will sometimes complain about the quality of the pitch where they have a soccer game because it's **shudder** grass with a few bare spots or weeds.  Even St. Mary's County stepped up in the last year and put in two really nice turf fields, not the 1988 Royals Stadium stuff, but the modern thick cushiony stuff that you wear normal cleats on and that drains in minutes after a huge downpour. We had a tournament over Columbus Day weekend in Manassas and the goalposts were rusty and needed a coat of paint.  Can you imagine having people over with the place in such a condition?  The embarrassment...
    • We have space for 15ish players and we have only talked about protecting around 7-10 guys...so yes, they easily have space. Of course, you do have to be able to field a ML team and dropping one of these kids off the 40 man exposes them in a way they don’t have to stay on the roster, like you do with the rule 5.  So, it could end up being riskier you put them on the 40 man now.     That being said, I think we have the room to make sure you don’t lose anyone you could regret.
    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.
