The RH swing isn’t bad either. 1.200+ OPS vs LHP. .790 vs RHP. He looks about as ready as ready as one can be. 

That’s a pretty big separation. Maybe he’s a candidate to drop switch hitting too. Or you give him his days off against tough LHP.

1.   I wouldn’t make too much of one year’s worth of R/L spilts.  Many players fluctuate from year to year on this.   

2.  .790 isn’t exactly bad.   

I wouldn’t dream of telling Rutschman to drop switch hitting at this point.  As to giving him his days off against LHP, that can be decided in the future.

I wouldn’t have dreamed of telling Mullins that either. Just something to keep in mind as his career develops.

There’s a pretty big difference.  Mullins had a .439 OPS as a RHB in the majors, and his MiL numbers also were bad as RHB.   Rutschman’s numbers from the RH side are above average, just not as stellar as his LH numbers so far.

Rutschman kicks left footed and writes right handed, so I would be inclined to think that he is more ambidextrous than the average switch hitter.  FWIW

Why would you give Rutschman days off against LHP if he’s hitting better from the right side? Wouldn’t it be the other way around?

Got curious how Rutschman’s move from Bowie to Norfolk impacted the fate of those two teams.

Bowie: 49-33 (.598) with Rutschman; 24-14 (.632) without him.   

Norfolk: 32-50 (.390) without Rutschman; 20-28 (.416) with him.   

Obviously there were many other players moving around other than just Rutschman.   But I guess I’d say neither team was really heavily impacted by the move.    Bowie not only survived, it thrived.    Norfolk got a minor bump but nothing earth shattering.   

All this is to say that I’m not expecting Rutschman’s arrival in Baltimore to have a huge and immediate impact on the W-L record.   I still look forward to watching him play, though.

HIs impact will depend on who else the O's bring in.   If they decide to not waste the Adley and Grayson years.

Yes, and that’s why they need to be aggressive in the offseason.

I think this is only the Boiwie at bats and does not include what he did at Norfolk.  Correct me if I am wrong.

This makes no sense. That increased impact wouldn’t be Adley, it would be who else the O’s bring in.

Overall he was 1.060 vs. LHP, .825 vs. RHP.   At Norfolk, .870 vs. LHP, .915 vs. RHP.   He’s going to hit fine from both sides of the plate.

    • Being the number one destination by a long shot in an area with top 5 amateur talent still matters. Being in an attractive major urban area still matters. Having top notch facilities and fan base still matters. Leaving the ACC hurt the programs standing.  But there's a reason the school has had such sustained stretches of success in the past.  Even under Turgeon the team was generally a top 25ish team. If you get fired for being generally top 25ish, that's because people have higher expectations for the program.  And they should.  Because the school has all the advantages to be a top 20 team annually.   Now, that's not saying this hire will end up well for MD.  They could conceivably get worse.  But that won't be because of the program's potential.
    • I think you're looking at it the wrong way by placing too much emphasis on the current state of the program.  I of course don't think thry are currently a top-25 program.  But Maryland was able to lure away P5 coaches from schools that are on your list for their last 2 coaching hires, including during a time when they were facing NCAA sanctions.  On top of that, they were really close to luring away a coach (Sean Miller) from a program that I had listed as better than us.  That's fact, not theory.  I don't believe for a second that Turgeon's tenure here dropped the desirability of this job down to where we aren't still close to that level, nor do I think that the other schools closed the gap so significantly that we are worse than all of them.   Let's look at it another way.  If Iowa lost its coach and were looking for a coach this offseason, would they beat us out in terms of hires?  Would TAMU?   Would Alabama?  Would USC?  With Iowa and TAMU I feel very strongly thay they wouldn't. Especially since we already poached one coach from TAMU.  Alabama?  Maybe depending on how much a coach values environment over Benjamin's.  USC?  Only for someone who wants to be in LA.  FSU?  Absolutely not.  Auburn?  similar to Alabama IMO but maybe more tilted in favor of Auburn.  Arkansas?  Debatable as well.   Regardless there are enough schools on this list where I think Maryland comes out clearly ahead in this exercise that I feel comfortable putting this HC position as a top-25 job.
    • Well, Westry is out.  Smith hurt his ankle And Young was sick.  It could mean they just want more depth and that none of them are out. The McCrary thing is interesting.  Wonder if they give him carries tomorrow?
    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
    • Oh man, there should definitely be a Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  That would be amazing!
    • This. I was always a MD Basketball fan first football fan second even though I like football more. Mostly because I grew up with Len Bias during the glory years of Lefty and then Gary Williams cam in and let them very relevent winning it all with an underdog squad. I could not be happier that Turgeon is gone as I've been off his bandwagon for a long time. He's an awful in game coach and his offense is stale, boring and basically resides around throwing up threes or letting his star be stars. Losing Wiggens and Morsell should have told Evans he needed to finally push him out the door, but now we have another lost year.  They need a splashy signing that will invigorate the recruiting and the program. I'll be honest, I tried watching a game or two but found myself disinterested and worse, I really cared less about the VT game where they just looked awful down the stretch. All I kept thinking to myself is more boring Turgeon ball. Either way, I wish there was some way to go back to the ACC but I doubt that will ever happen. MD football will always be irrelevant in the Big-10 because they will never be able to compete with Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State because they have huge packed stadiums every year and compete in major bowls while the Terps end up in Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  And yes, I had to look up a brand of douche! MD basketball should be good because of the local talent and facilities, but as was mentioned already, the college sports scene has changed with social media, one and done possibilities and the transfer pool. And that's doesn't even take into consideration the "likeness pay" is going to have. Both programs need big time coaches to ever have a chance but sadly, Evans is not concerned with making money rather than having success in the field/court.
