Don’t forget that he ditched batting from the right side, so his career numbers are not the usual apples to apples comparison.  His career splits make me think that this season is more than just a hot streak as long as he continues to handle left handed pitching.

As a fan and someone who knows absolutely nothing about advance metrics, I would say a full season. 

 

To go from being a switch hitter to batting strictly from one side makes things cloudy on what would be a new " normal" for him.

1000 ABs establishes the stabilization point for many hitting metrics, a little less for some.  So we have 250-300 ABs to get there.

Impressed with Mullins' improvement with that bat.  After his blazing start, he cooled off and his OPS started to decline.  I figured he would end up .700-.750 OPS, which would still be positive w/ his Gold Glove caliber defense.  I just checked, he's back up to .924.  Now to see if anyone else in the outfield can stay healthy.

He's been on excellent surprise this season. Nobody is "untouchable", but he is the type of player they should build around.

I’m on the other side of the fence on this one. I feel like Mullins is a strike while the iron is hot trade candidate. I don’t think he can keep this up, and with the season he is having, he would bring a nice package in return. If you would have told me that at the beginning of the year I wouldn't have believed you. I do like Mullins though, so I wouldn’t be unhappy at all if we kept him.

Mullins hasn’t done anything to say he is a build around player yet but the changes he has made to his swing are paying off bug time.  We will see if he can keep this up but I would be surprised to see the Os deal him in July.

I tell ya Sports Guy, you continue to impress me with your ability to be wrong at every turn. Carry on!

He’s clearly a build around player. He’s the perfect lead off batter, he’s an incredible defender. Best of all, he stays healthy. You’re right though that the O’s will not deal him.

Was he a build around player prior to this season?

Did you think he was a build around player just last month when he slashed 255/336/306/732?

Would you build around a 26 y/o 730 OPS CFer with no prior ML history of being good?

So tired of fans that want to trade every good players the O's have.  I guess I want to cheer for a winning team, not a last place team that trades any good player.  Some fans on the hangout want to have an endless rebuild.  I feel like the O's with the talent that they have in the minors plus the talent in the majors can start trying to win next year.  Its time to stop trading core players.

    • First of all, the current state of the program absolutely matters and it matters a hell of a lot more than MDs title in 2002. Would those schools out hire?  Maybe..money is important and the Terps haven’t had any. BTw, I meant Texas Tech, not Texas A&M.  Now, we will see what TT does after losing Beard but that’s been a really good program recently. FSU has been a far better program than MD for a solid 5-10 years.  It’s not close.  They have had several first round picks, highly ranked recruiting classes and lots of tourney success, not to mention being one of the winningest programs in the ACC. Your last sentence is just wrong.  The idea that you think it’s clear is absurd. They have limited recent success(especially in March), not much national appeal, no money and no real high end picks to point to in the league recently.     Like I said, the right coach can elevate the program back to what you are saying…but as we talk now, as the job is looked at by recruits, etc…it’s not there anymore.  Things can change.  
    • I'm pretty sure these guys call the Summer Eve's Douche Bowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=522H44ddePQ
    • 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, but I also don't think Alabama would pay a coach top dollar unless it's someone like Nate Oats and has proven success with the program.  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.
