Who will be our Arizona Fall League Selections?

Recommended Posts

I actually think Tyler Henson may get the call over Avery. I think next year would be the ideal year to send Avery.

Henson tore ligaments in his thumb a couple of days ago. I doubt he's going anywhere.

Don't they have to have been playing in AA on August 1st to be AFL eligible? I think Avery was called up later than that, and with Townsend and Drake going, that would make Avery ineligible.

Of course, I could have misunderstood some aspect of the rules.

Where the hell did that come from? Were his numbers just drop dead silly at SJ JC?

His numbers were good there, but he actually was drafted out of Texas (where his numbers were solid but not elite). Big question is whether the power is for real. He's always had a solid approach and shown a decent ability to work for his pitch and make hard contact, but usable power has been a question (swing plane).

Well how 'bout that.

I figured you'd have a thorough answer.

Which is why I asked. ;)

Brandon Belt, 1b at Richmond can totally rake. We saw enough of him at Bowie this season and was glad he was called up for a few games.

Biggest nice surprise is probably Townsend, who has missed a lot of time but looks like a prospect on the rise. I said he might be ready, talent wise, to start next year in AA. With a good AFL, it could happen. My only question is, is he on the regular roster or the taxi squad where they can only play twice a week?

It will be interesting to see if Adams plays 2B, 3B, or both.

It's the first year in a while where we haven't sent anyone to the AFL who was a big-time prospect for us. None of these pitchers will ever be in our starting rotation, and none of the hitters is very likely to be anything more than a role-player in the major leagues. I'm sure I will follow how these guys do, but I won't be reading any tea leaves regarding their major league futures.

I am coming around to Townsend having the talent to possibly be ready for Bowie if he has a nice AFL and Spring Training.

    • His option wasn't picked up yet AFAIK. The option amount is fairly high for QBs, something like 24 million.  2022 would be the option year so you could scrap the option year for some cap savings in 2022 and 2023.  2024 would probably be full price against the cap and 2025/2026 would be a cut/restructure year depending on how long the deal is/how you structure it.
    • But you aren’t signing him until you get past the 2 years.  So, his first year would be 2023.  He isn’t sign a 2-3 year deal.  He is signing 4+.  
    • I'd like to see them expand the number of games in the GCL. Perhaps make it a May - Sep League.
    • Are the two choices monster extension and no extension?  Because if you put a gun to my head and make me pick between the two I'd go for no extension.   But if he's open to a shorter extension (similar to deshaun watson,  maybe 5 years on paper with 4 years effective length) then I'm definitely listening.  I have no problem signing him through the years that would take him to his 2 tag years,  especially if it gets us some cap savings.
    • I would think a lot of teams would want to double up on the GCL this year in view of the lost MiL season last year.    So, we’ll have to see if the GCL can accommodate that.  
    • Yep, you're right, I do now remember reading that Elias said he would like to have two GCL teams when discussing losing a current team. Unless I missed it though, I haven't heard it officially yet though. Guess I can check.
    • I already said why it’s foolish in several different posts. 1). There’s no hurry 2). He hasn’t shown to be good enough  3) I want to see how he does with better weapons and a better system To name a few... As I have said, this version of Lamar is not worth a monster extension.  I just can’t fathom how anyone can believe that to be the case unless your goal is to not win titles.     I think he can become the player who is worth the extension but he has to show it first.  I’m not going to just assume that he will be that guy. BtW, your reasoning was why you sign him to that extension instead of franchising him.  I’m not saying I am for franchising him(and you have TWO more seasons before you have to think about doing this anyway), I am saying that because you have that in your back pocket, there isn’t an immediate hurry to sign him.  You have him under your control for a while.  So, make him prove that he is worth that extension.
