Mullins and DJ Stewart

Recommended Posts

https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/leaderboard/outs_above_average?type=Fielder&year=2020&team=&range=year&min=q&pos=of&roles=&viz=show

OF only - the grab last night I guess helped bump Mullins up to 4 OAA on the year, a level only 7 outfielders (mostly full timers) have made it to this year.  I wouldn't be surprised if he topped the list if that got converted to a per-iinning basis.

I have no idea if 250 innings of OF defense at that excellent rate has the same kind of fast signature significance as one batted ball 110 MPH, but I do know Tampa's locked in Kiermaier for a bunch of years to not hit, and they are doing okay.

Early next year, maybe leadoff Stewart going for that 3rd PA by 5th inning, then switch him in, provided Hays is ambulatory.  Whatever role, his skillset does go well with Yusniel, Hays, Santander, Stewart, assuming Mountcastle's embarking on an Eddie-like 1B run tonight.

Kiermaier was a well above-average hitter by CF standards for a few years.  He had a couple down years but he’s hitting well again this year.

It's America. We have a Constitutional right to drive up to Starbucks in a monster truck and order up a 128 ounce coffee whenever we want.

Isn’t your pickup supposed to be big enough to have a Starbucks in the back?

LOL, great question.   By the way, go back to my post, I’ve linked a video that explains my comment.

Sorry?

It’s not a Larry the Cable Guy video, though his image is used.    It’s a parody song by a group called the Capitol Steps.

Is a player like DJ more than a platoon player/bat off the bench.  His average is down to .206, his OPS is still .909.  I could see him putting up a .200 average with a ,330 OBP and 40 HR in 80 RBIs in a full season.  With his extreme hot and cold streaks is he someone you want in the lineup every day?

I think it’s too early to characterize Stewart as a streaky player.    First of all, all players are somewhat streaky.   Second, I think it takes a few full seasons to really know if a player is particularly streaky.   

I think Stewart is better than a .200 hitter long term, but not necessarily as high as .250.    I also don’t think he’s a 40 homer guy.    He’s a .245/.345/.440 guy in the longer term, I think.

I agree, I doubt he is streaky just had one Jack Cust HR streak. Someone please post the latest dropped fly ball from last nights game. I don't believe I have ever seen a ML outfielder who has on multiple occasions closed his glove before the ball made contact thus having the ball boink off the outside of the glove. He has no place on a ML roster. Why would we lose Fulmer who we obviously have interest in to keep Stewart on the 40 man. Seriously this guy couldn't play OF for one of the better city slow pitch softball teams.

If you think Fulmer has more value to this team than Stewart, then I don't know what to tell you.

It happens all the time that a MLer drops a ball like DJ did last night.  That being said, he’s still a guy you prefer to be a DH while playing the OF at times.

This.  Sucks that it happened, especially with Akin on the mound, but it happens.  Next year, I could see an alignment of Santander, Hays/Mullins, Mountcastle, with Stewart splitting time between DH and LF, Mancini between 1B and DH, and Mountcastle between LF and 1B.  So I think there are DH at bats available for DJ next year.

    • Well, it is not very likely, but I wouldn’t say it’s unheard of.  Bo Bichette was drafted in the second round out of high school in 2016 and debuted in the majors on July 29, 2019 for a non-contending Blue Jays team that went 67-95.    But the next year, they were a winning club and now they’re really going for it.    Bichette was a rare case, but it does happen.   
    • I believe much more in the statcast numbers because they are based off a system that judges typical success of a typical MLB player in the same situation, not math or the eye of a person. Either way, I'm not upset over this move, I just don't think it helps anything for the future or winning now. Maybe he'll be great defensively again and then he has value in the development of the young starters. Other than that, he brings very little to the table and this is a team that has found every way to cut money from supposedly getting ride of coaches, to releasing or trading players over MLB-wise small salaries, to furloughing employees making barely livable wages.  I agree with you that Sanchez is almost assuredly going to be better defensively at 2B vs SS, but he's also a guy who has played a lot of 2B because a better shortstop was on the team so it makes you wonder whether he could be effective over there if given a chance. Saying that, Sanchez doesn't exactly excite me either. I guess I just kind of see this as a Meh signing. Then again, the other options were Meh as well, but at least in that situation they are young enough where they could show enough improvement to possibly have value if given that playing time. I do believe the Orioles future SS is in the system, but it's not ready for this year and most likely not next.  
    • Camp invites and minor league starting assignments will start to give us real information about how Elias views '22 this quarter. Those are kind of independent of the Cashflow Money Makes The World go round aspect of it IRL.   In straight baseball terms, I don't think I've seen a clear signal yet from Elias about the 2022 club's viability, which I get due to lack of data.    I could believe half a dozen or so Tides/Baysox to be could produce 0 WAR or 20 WAR next year, and don't think there are many orgs where among 6-8 upper minors guys you could say that.
    • I don't think they'd be interested in Franco considering they cut Renato Nunez.  Franco is an older, worse, and probably more expensive version of Nunez. 
    • Sure. Again I don't think any of the current options moves a needle one way or the other, and I guess if the orioles know the reason why Galvis' defense slipped so much last year and they think he can get back to where he was, then sure, why not on the defensive side alone?  I doubt any of the guys you mentioned are starters during a playoff caliber orioles team and I doubt any of them can be traded to being one in, even in a package. I guess for a team that seems to be cutting corners financially, why dump money into a guy that's not going to move the needle or really win you more ball games. the only way this makes sense is if gold glove caliber defense shows back up and it's helps a young pitching staff. I guess we'll see what Galvis shows up defensively this year.
    • Hopefully we'll just get some candor and label it the Not 2020 WSOHL report - even Gleyber had it. If Galvis is just falling off that cliff and is only the 29th best fielding SS nowadays (#Gleyber!), he probably still saves a dozen or more runs than if we tried Sanchez, Urias or Valaika there 150 times.    We even get to manage Richie Martin's service time to secure his 2025 now, so it kind of pays for itself!
    • I am very excited about him. All I’m saying is there is no way he is up in 2022 unless it’s to join a contender.
