…if it’s funny

The idea that you don't believe in Kyle Stowers... but that he continues to perform in spite of your disbelief... suggesting that he is unfazed by (and therefore doesn't believe in) your assessment... is kinda funny.

Maybe you're taking yourself just a touch too seriously.

It concerns me that this strategy might not work so well with good pitching.   However, maybe training the eye this way could encourage better plate discipline which could then be used for a better two strike approach against better pitching. 

Exactly--waiting for a pitch that you can drive is fine until there are two strikes.  Then you need to change your approach--either look for a pitch that you can take the other way, or keep fouling off good pitches until the pitcher makes a mistake (like Sanchez did against Akin today, for example).

That's great. I'd love to see him play the left-half of the Hays platoon next year.   Makes Santander a bit more expendable too.

He has a .999 OPS against lefties this year. Doesn’t sound like he needs platooning right now.

Neustrom on one corner.   Stowers in the other.     I guess Zach Jarrett mans CF and Yusniel Diaz who still hasn't gotten untracked either goes to DH or some fate even worse than that.   Who goes to make room for Stowers?

Also, does this cause a chain reaction at Bowie and Aberdeen?   Someone like Turchin back up to Bowie and Cowser up to Aberdeen?

Bowie may be covered in the outfield between Welk (who has been playing some LF), Watson, Rizer, and Fontana. Oh and Vavra who has been playing 2nd since his return but can play OF as well.

At present, Delmarva has too many prospect bats to get them all in the lineup.

Huge news. Congrats to Stowers. Now can people on the board @Sports Guystop including him as a 2nd/3rd piece in trade ideas. The dude is a beast. Get on board.

I think the jury is out until he does it in the majors.  Waiting to see if he has holes that ML pitchers will exploit.  He does have contact issues but he's produced so far. The power is real and intriguing.

Gotta give the O's credit for the way they've moved Stowers this year.  Even though it's late in the season, I think it's very important for a prospect like him (at his age and with his propensity to strike out a lot) to get some AAA exposure this season.  It's good for him, and it helps the O's with their planning for next year.

    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
    • I'm 45 minutes in.  It's a good interview. I love Adam Jones as much as anyone else.  But he's about 10 years away from being a guy doing commentary on a broadcast and annoying the hell out of the audience like Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver, etc with the "back in my day" type of attitude.
    • Adam will always be one of my favorite Orioles. I wonder who our next Adam Jones will be. Not only from a performance standpoint but from being outspoken and keeping it 💯.
    • There was definitely reporting that the defect was congenital and, I believe, present in both knees.   I don’t remember if the “when, not if” discussion was a reported opinion of doctors, or board speculation.   And, I don’t know if a doctor would recommend preemptive surgery even if the doctor thought the other knee would blow eventually.   The Tatis situation really does seem like wishful thinking on his part.   Five dislocations in one season?   I doubt exercises are going to fix that.   I remember Chris Webber had a problem with recurring shoulder dislocations and tried to avoid the knife but eventually had to do the surgery.
