Still not a high enough OPS for Frobby to want him up in Delmarva though! :)

If Rutschman hits .692 in his first 14 PA at Norfolk I will reconsider my position as to whether he’s ready for the majors.   😉

As to Cowser, I initially guessed he’d be in the FCL for two weeks.   He’s obviously ready to be moved up but I’m not going to lose sleep over whether he’s promoted tomorrow or after this weekend.

He’s obviously ready but you are fine with keeping him down?  I just don’t get that mindset but whatever, no biggie.

Cowser should be in Aberdeen to start next year and should be in Bowie rather quickly.

I don’t think 5-6 days matters much in the scheme of things.   And there may be things they do in Sarasota to indoctrinate their players into their system before they send them out.   It’s not just a matter of “is he hitting well.”   

Now if it goes on longer than this week I’ll be surprised.    

I certainly agree that Cowser should start next year no lower than Aberdeen.   Maybe even Bowie depending how he looks in the spring.

2 for 3 with two walks today, including a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 9th.  Oh yeah, he also threw a runner out at 2B.

2 for 3 would actually drop his average, as he was at .692 coming in to today. 
 

He’s clearly not being challenged at all. Maybe he can go to Delmarva now.

So now that he's slumping you want to promote him?

Elias just didn't want Adley hanging around with a bunch of losers.

That will preclude calling him up to the Majors for a while.

Norfolk’s not really a great destination either!

I know you're aware of this, but I still think it's worth pointing out.

Moves are not made with the only consideration being "is player x ready to hit for team y?" There's something called logistics. That means flights, hotels/rentals, other roster moves with corresponding flights/hotels/rentals, medical appointments, family considerations, perhaps workout routines and things I haven't thought of.

What I'm saying isn't a disagreement with your overall stance of being more aggressive, I'm just pushing back on the sniping about a few days here and there. There's unavoidable reasons for "the mindset" that are not at all baseball related.

    • Does it depend how he profiles defensively?  If he's 2B or 3B, that's a harder sell as #1, very easy sell if he can stick at SS.  I like Dru Jones for his profile of his dad pretty much, maybe with more speed.
    • I think what this shows is that the price for this type of player is falling dramatically. Peralta is probably more in line with what Mancini could expect in an extension. Schwarber has shown a bit more power than everyone on here besides Trumbo. That, and his HR tear this year, is why he could receive a 3/60 type deal (though I’m skeptical).
    • Interesting that you keep bringing it up like it's a cause for concern.  Unless the cancer comes back, I think he's settled anything that has to do with his health. Next.
    • None of those comps are really that similar to Trey because he has the unique  situation of having stage 3 cancer and went through chemo.   Any GM offering a multi year contract must include that as a risk factor which may shorten the number of years a team may want to commit guaranteed money. That said I think Trey's value is low right now because of his second half of 2021.   With a normal off season of Trey being the worker that he is should allow him to have much better 2022.    I am very much in favor of signing Trey to a two year contract or a one year with an option year.   That way he is not a rental player this season and if he has a good 1st half that probably raise his value at the deadline or even over next winter.
    • It’s pretty hard to find good comps for Mancini, and I’d say his offensive performance in 2022 will have a lot of influence on his future value.   Mancini has a career OPS+ of 115.  Last year Kyle Schwarber was coming off a very bad 2020 (88 OPS+) but got a 1/$10 mm contract based on his career 113 OPS+.   This year he put up 148 OPS+ but in 113 games.   I’m hearing he may get 3/$60 mm.    David Peralta had a 115 OPS+ through 2019, when he signed an extension for 3/$22 mm.   He was a little older than Mancini; the extension covered his ages 32-34 seasons.  Mancini will be 30 this year.    Then you have a guy like Wil Myers who had a 110 OPS+ through 2016 including 115 OPS+ that year, and signed for 6/$83 mm including $22.5 mm/yr for three FA years.    Mark Trumbo had a career 113 OPS+ and was coming off his 47 homer, 122 OPS+ campaign when he signed for 3/$37.5 mm with the O’s.   Not clear he could have got close to that elsewhere.   Long and short, Mancini is in a sort of in-betweenish spot, and how he does in 2022 will matter a lot to his FA value.
