MLB Pipeline top 100

Recommended Posts

Cowser‘s debut is magnificent. Talk about a smart, smart pick. Kjerstad’s health woes are an outlier and definitely something that happened after he was drafted. To think something like heart inflammation wouldn’t be caught with how rigorous physicals are is just not something I’m willing to believe. Covid or treatment to prevent Covid likely caused his career to be sidelined. No way for Elias to know that would happen. Still though, notice how people like Austin Martin aren’t on the list at all?

5 in the top 100. Kjerstad dropped out. If we would’ve went in different directions the last two draft we could’ve have 4 guys in the top 30. 

I don’t remember anyone pining for Detmers but I could be wrong. 7 teams passed on him after the O’s.

Surprised Coby Mayo did not get ranked higher with his nice start in the team top 30.

The Team top 3 is always jacked up. Mayo is certainly top 10 and from their you can argue he could be as high as #5.

I'm fine with them not upending all the work they have done over a few weeks of games.  He's got plenty of time to move up in the rankings if this level of play continues.

We can’t change anything but we passed on,

2021: Lawler(#13), Watson (#28)

2020: Martin(#38), Veen(#55), Lacy(#72), and Gonzalez(#68)

We can’t change anything now. I’m going to root for the guys we have. But all six of those guys were rumored to be in the mix and we took players that were/are rated lower.

I like the Cowser pick, but with the slot money we left on the table if we used the full availability(105%), it’s basically Lawler vs Cowser + Creed Willems.

I’ll never understand why people take these rankings as gospel.

I don't think anyone does.  It is just a point of reference for most of us.

 

Maybe it’s just my interpretation of the tone of the post I quoted. It just came across as defeatist that BA has rated Watkins and Lawlar ahead of Cowser

I’m not going to complain too much. We do have the highest rated position player in pitcher in all of the MILB. I’m fact see this article on the front page of the milb.com

It’s not defeatist over one top 100 list. Publications and pre draft lists aren’t always right. See GrayRod vs Liberatore. However, that was a DD regime pick. 

All I’m pointing out is,

2021: Cowser + Creed Willems over Lawler or Watson

2020: Kjerstad + Mayo + Baumler over Martin or Lacy

We’ve done nothing but lose, and resemble an expansion team at the MLB level. So I think in year 3, it’s fair to question Elias just a bit. Especially when Elias has gone against the consensus picks in 2/3 drafts and doesn’t draft pitching at all. Fair to criticize.

    • I was a little disappointed that Junior Lara, who got a late start in the DSL but did well there, wasn’t invited to Instructs.   I still expect he’ll play in the FCL next year.   
    • How far is Bellinger from free agency?  It would be nice to get him to sign to an extension, but I don't see a reason for him to do so.  If he even partially rebounds, he would want a $100 mill deal. 
    • My wife and I decided to watch this HBO miniseries after it won several Emmys, including Kate Winslet for best actress in a limited series (7 episodes each about an hour).   It’s fantastic.   It’s about a police detective (the title character Mare) in a small, run down Pennsylvania town, where everyone knows everyone and half the people are related.  Mare has a lot of baggage of her own, slowly revealed as she tries to solve a murder that happens in the town.  Winslet is fantastic in the role, and the whole cast is great.  There are plot twists right to the end.  Highly recommend it.   
    • Hey Sportsfan; Thank you for the compliments.  So there are 3 DSL guys in Florida now. 17 year old Samuel Basallo received $1.3 million.  The biggest bonus of the Elias Era.  He was expected to sign with the Yankees.  He was very good batting .239/.338/.410 for a .748 OPS.  5 homers, 8 doubles.  Now in Instructional League.  Led Orioles 1 in homers and RBIs 17 year oldShortstop Maikol Hernandez received $1.2 million.  He hit .231/.340/.308 for a .647 OPS.  No homers, only 4 for 7 in steals. He is in the Instructional League so they still believe in him. 17 year old 3rd baseman Anderson De Los Santos received $350,00. He hit a robust..324/.409/.495 for a .905 OPS.  He also filled in at short, but made to many errors.  A little error prone at 3rd, but he's a converted shortstop.  Only 18 strikeouts in 127 at bats, 15 walks.  6 doubles, 2 triples, 3 homers, 3 for 4 steals.  Tremendous 1st year, now in the Instructructional League.   17 year old speedy centerfielder Junior Lara received $160,00.  Batted .344/.434/.500 in only 77 at bats.  So he missed half the season with an injury. 17 year old Rightfielder Wilmer Feliciano received $400,000.  He struggled with strikeouts and groudouts.  Hit .202/.312/.353 for a .665 OPS. Hit 4 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers.  Also 3 for 3 in steals.  119 at bats, 45 strikeouts, 70% groundouts to 30% flyouts.  Terrible ratios for a big-time power hitter.  I would think his swing can be corrected. I was disappointed in Orioles 1.  13 and 39 overall.  With all those bonus babies, still a young team. Orioles 2 was a competitive team with modest bonus players.  25 wins 30 losses. Their most intriguing player was 18 year old Shortstop Frederick Benscome. He was a late Class of 2019 signee.  6 feet 160lbs left handed power from a shortstop. 142 at bats, 6 doubles,4 triples, 2 homers, 11 walks, only 18 strikeouts.  10 steals in 13 attempts. 60% flyouts to 40 % ground outs.  I would have thought he should be in Instructional League teaching others how to make contact and put the ball in the air !!!!
