Good one.  Can you think of anyone before that?  I was pretty excited about Joe Mahoney's performance back in 2010.  Didn't exactly work out.

Walter Young, 2004.  Only because he was brought up on here a few weeks ago.  

There's probably someone else in there we're just forgetting.

And then there is Calvin Pickering and Ryan Minor.

I like both he and Neustrom to get time in our OF next year.  It's exciting to think about.

Yeah, if both Neustrom and Stowers look good midway through next season and Santander and Mancini are having decent years, I could so both being traded at the deadline (if neither is extended).

Man, he was before Walter Young.  Sheesh I'm getting old.

Pickering had some legit OPS seasons in the minors, I forgot all about this.  1.086 at Bluefield (BLUEFIELD!!) .949 at Delmarva, 1.000 at Bowie.  

Safe to say the Orioles haven't had many power bats come through the system in the past 25 years or so.

One of the things that I like about him is that he's been consistent all season. And he hits lefties and righties well. Other than Mussina and Hammonds, have we had any other Stanford guys (Brian Sackinsky just came to mind too....if I'm spelling his name right)?

There was Pete Stanicek, drafted in 1985.   He was good in the minors but got derailed with injuries as a major leaguer after two partial seasons.  

Edit - Also, Jeff Ballard.

I understand why he's not getting more attention as a prospect.  But IMO, it's a bit silly.  Not sure why he's not more highly regarded.  How many minor leaguers are having a season like he is?

 

Reminds me of Kyle Tucker from the Astros.

Pete Stanicek and Jeffrey Hammonds both were really injury prone.  Made me want to avoid drafting any more guys from Stanford.  But that Mussina guy turned out OK.

I don’t see Neustrom as anything other than a AAAA player.

I hope you need your eyes checked.

It’s just too early to make a pronouncement about something like that right now.   He’s played less than a half season of AAA and of course hasn’t played in the majors at all.   Before this year he really was barely on the radar screen at all, so who are we to predict what he’ll be next year?    I think he has some flaws but he’s improved a ton this year and maybe he’ll just keep on improving.   I could see him being a better version of DJ Stewart.

I definitely think he is on the radar for a corner outfield/1B/DH spot at some point next season and could well be penciled in as the starter in 2023 if Mancini and/or Santander don't come back in 2023. He may well outplay Santander and take his spot next year.

I don't see Elias giving Stowers a chance to take Santander's spot.  I believe Santander will be traded either in the offseason or before the trade deadline.  If he's on the roster, he will be getting plenty of chances to improve his trade value.  Not sure Santander will even bring back an organization's top 10 prospect.  He likely would have been traded at the deadline if the O's had an offer like that.

Pete Stanicek had one of the O’s all-time great minor league seasons at Hagerstown in ‘86.  In 127 games he had 115 runs, 77 steals, .317 average, and a .438 OBP.

And I don't think that's a problem. Find a near-MLB ready bullpen guy plus a Jean Pinto X 2 and I'd be happy with that return.

    • Yeah, so I’ve held off telling the story about my interaction w/ Jones, but he’s no longer an Oriole, so.... I posted years ago about a hitting clinic he held at SDSU w/ Harold Reynolds. It was a fun time for me and my daughters taking a road trip from Los Angeles.  After the clinic was over we, of course, went to see about getting something signed or a picture. We waited patiently as he signed for a number of people and then I approached him to get a picture of him and my girls. He started to lineup to do so and then balked at the idea, saying it would take too much time, at which the expressions of my kids faces visibly dropped. Disappointing to say the least, but I explained it away with some such fatherly bs.  I never mentioned it in the thread about our trip because I knew there would likely be disbelief or outright anger for me calling out an Oriole player, especially Jones. After all these years, it wasn't a huge deal, but yes, I lost respect for him. As far as I know, Palmer has always been great with not only fans, but going out of his way to be available for them. There’s also no one else I’d rather listen to call a game than Jim Palmer. His stories are part of that.
    • Well Machado should’ve been dealt the offseason before but somehow we were still going for it with a team that actually won 47 games. The only thing bad I could say about what DD did in the Machado trade, is that he should’ve gotten more A ball players versus trying to get players that were closer to being ready. However, The Dodgers had just spent $50+ million on Diaz, Pop was 20, and Kremer was leading all of milb in SO. 
    • Unless the CBA changes there is zero incentive to call up AR before June 1. It’s not like another 60 days of “bad” PR is going to hurt this franchise any more. 
    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass
