Buck also had good coaches. Our pitching tanked after I believed Wiley? left the team. Also, Bobby Dickerson really helped Machado and Schoop. Having Hardy helped too.
I’d love for us to convince Hardy in the future to be our MLB infield coach. No matter who the manager is.
You think that if he misses the entire 2022 season that won't effect his initial placement in 2023?
Do you think Elias is going to be aggressive or conservative in his placement given his past history?
Age is a factor. Any smart evaluator is going to make allowances for the lost time due to injury. Due to Trimbles pedigree and high draft status it will be 95% about how he performs post injury. I love your new math. An injury with a recovery time of 6-9 months is now going to cost him two years. You couldn't just agree to disagree. Now you're just saying dumb stuff.
True PA is what created the whole atmosphere of different guys being in charge from one year to the next. Brady I think gets unfairly blamed for his role in the demise. Its hard to say how accurate that is.
Buck managed under a "win now" regime whose owner limited the org greatly in Latin America. Buck also wasn't in charge of the draft. Tough crowd that puts that much blame on Buck for the current situation. Gonna blame him for 1999-2010 too? The blame lies at the top with Peter Angelo's. Period.
If you want to act like age isn't a significant factor in player evaluations have at it.
BTW, he's more likely to be two years behind and not one. He's probably going to be starting at a lower level in 2023 then you would expect from a college player in their first full season.
