…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.

    • 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
