Bannon and Pop were the next two available players from last year’s list, so I’m going with them.  Nevin’s an outsider not eligible for last year’s list, but honestly he doesn’t impress me that much.

So far I am 6 out of 13, plus the poll where the correct choice (Kremer/Akin) wasn’t on the ballot.   I said Kremer/Lowther on that one.

I believe LRod was a league top 20 guy in 2019 and Nevin was reasonably ranked from where he came.  Would prefer an LRod, Sanchez option to get a recent international guy at the back of the list.

My gut feeling is that a year from now, if we made a list of our top 10 international prospects, L Rodriguez would be near the bottom of that list.    But at this point most of our top guys don’t have any track record to go on.

I missed that one. What happened??? I think I am stuck on 3 for 13. Diaz threw me for a major loop.

Tony, I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to do write ups on all 30 of the OH Orioles 2020 top 30 prospects.  It's very enjoyable to read your educated opinions about the Os farm system.

Appreciate the the kind words and feedback. I'm going to do some video pieces here soon on guys that did not make the list as well. I'll also take some Q&As ahead of time on guys on the list. I'll get something out on that soon.

He can’t answer that until he posts no. 29 and 30!

But you could go 6-10 deep with guys who made last year’s list plus a few we acquired.

I don't know if anyone was tough to leave off, but I'd say the following players were in the running for the last two spots:

Zach Pop: Hasn't barely pitched in two years so hard to know where he is at this point.
Leonardo Rodriguez: I liked what I saw when he was in Aberdeen. Flashed me a plus slider and mid-90s fastball.
Luis Sanchez: Good reports on the arm and the age gives him quite the ceiling, but I haven't even seen video of him so he can't give him a ranking yet.
Ramón Urias: Has a chance to be an everyday starter next year at 2B. I could have built a case for him to be over Bannon but need to see more from him especially since his defense was so bad during his major league time.

Oops!   Asleep at the switch!

Well, I can’t really argue about Nevin over Pop, though I voted the other way.    I really like Pop and was gratified to hear that he’s healthy and throwing pain-free.    He should be a full go next spring and to me he’s a guy who could move really quickly if he recovers his stuff.

I went back and forth and just decided to go with Nevin since we really don't know what we have with Pop until he's back on the mound throwing competitively.

    • Lets look at both Santander and Nunez offensively at 26 years old Season WOBA WOBACON Barrel % Hard Hit % Exit Velo XBA XSLG XWOBA XWOBACON Renato Nunez .341 .453 12.1 36.4 86.3 .228 .433 .301 .388 Anthony Santander .358 .404 10.2 36.7 88.6 .286 .510 .338 .378 MLB AVG .317 .370 6.4 34.9 88.3 .250 .414 .321 .376 They are not significantly different though Santander is ahead in the most important OBA and especially XWOBA categories.  The key here is defensively value and cost. Santander is a switch hitting plus defensive RFer while Nunez is a DH. If Nunez played any position effectively, he'd be offered arbitration. Santander's issues have been staying healthy and he doesn't walk much, but then again, he doesn't strike out all that much either. Overall, Santander is a more valuable player than Nunez and this is coming from a guy who think Nunez is worth more than obviously the rest of baseball does.
    • Late to this thread but here's mine. Santander I don't expect any more than he gave us this year before he got hurt. But that's ok. A whole healthy year, that's a solid MLer. Hays... health is the biggest question. Total wrench in the gears. In a full year I would expect BIG things from him. He's not going to hit 30 HRs, but he might hit 30+ doubles and steal 30 bases. Play a stellar CF. I like Austin a lot! For a CFer he's what you want, a take charge guy. If there's a Bermuda Triangle pop up, and he can get to it, he will scream out and call everyone off. I noticed that from his first few games up. Not intimidated when he hit the bigs.
    • The original recording has a girl speaking Spanish in the background in a sexy voice. Like 40% the volume of Burdon. At one point she says in English "Are you listening to this?" Right after 3 minutes in. This 45... on the MGM label!  
    • YouTube came up with another of my favorites. That I have history with. 40 years ago my sisters and my cousins would listen to this 45 record endlessly! I was blown away by this song at 11 or 12 years old. Then 20ish years ago I found this live video online and was blown away a second time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i0DMbCKnAg click it
    • I don't know how other folks classify this... avant garde? To me this is Punk. Like Devo. An influence on Devo!  
    • Then what makes you think another team would give us value for him?
