Hays’ Hose

Recommended Posts

Austin Hays threw three strikes to 2B from LF today.   First one beat Nick Markakis, but Hanser Alberto dropped the ball while applying the tag.   Second one almost nabbed Ronald Acuña, who made a good slide and almost got tagged when his hand slipped off the bag.   Third time was the charm - the throw arrived same time as Freddie Freeman who lost contact with the bag and got tagged.    If anything, the third throw was the least accurate of the three, but still resulted in the runner getting tagged out.    Hays came that close to getting three OF assists in one night.    His arm is very impressive - both strong and accurate.

Watching the game, I was thinking they're testing Mountcastle's (rookie/ not natural position) arm. Except Mountcastle was at 1B. 2/3 should have been easy assists.

Or that we may have to quickly hit alt-tab when anyone is near the screen.

Hays' defense is fantastic. I'm still waiting for him to hit.

The real good content is on their @Patreon site.  I'm so old now that I thought "hose" meant his stirrups and had to think a while to realize what the reference was here.  😑

Hays threw out a runner at the plate tonight.    Perfect one hop throw to Sisco after charging a slow rolling grounder that had eluded the SS.

It was from shortish LF but that was a ROPE!

    • 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.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
