Great catch by Stewart, non-goober outfielder.

Hopefully everyone saw that.

The Stewart catch is up at MLB.com if anyone wants to watch it again.

If Gurriel hadn't been jogging he might have gotten an extra based on the bobble.

If Gurriel had hustled he might have made 3rd when Hays couldn't pick up the ball right away.

Hays was just baiting him trying to rack up another assist.

Gurriel putting on a clinic in lackadaisical baserunning.

Not quite as good a catch as Stevie Wilkerson's in RF on the last day of the season last year.

Just a year ago but seems forever.  Gary Thorne on the call, fans in the stands...

So if I understand it correctly Toronto will be the #8 seed and go to Tampa unless they win, and the Yankees lose.  Then Toronto would be the 5 seed and play the AL Central runner-up, and the Yankees would be the 8 seed.

Marlins just went up 3-0 on the Yankees.

Crazy how Sisco starts hot every year and then cools off.

Still had a better year than Severino.

His defense has looked better to me, but that may be affected by my seeing a lot of Severino's defense.

Is Rutschman expected to be a true switch-hitter,  equally effective (or close to it) from both sides, or does he have a strong side that should be taken in to account when thinking about back-up catchers?

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
    • https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=stalli000gar I'd learned he was a Josh Towers/Josh Tomlin strike-thrower type from the FG story, but was taken aback by how few strikeouts his Freshman/Sophomore year - that's some Ballard stuff. He made quite a leap Junior year, and was also co-Garrett on the Volunteers with Garrett Crochet.  Our guy beat the White Sox guy by about a run of ERA both years they were teammates.
