7th round - Max Schuh - LHP - UCLA

Recommended Posts

BA report:

Schuh arrived at UCLA as a walk-on for the football team but has turned himself into a baseball prospect under John Savage’s expert tutelage. Scouts love his athletic, physical 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame and his fresh arm. He has a long takeaway and good extension out front in his high three-quarters delivery, making his 86-91 fastball tough to pick up. It also has some late life and sink, and scouts think he could add more velocity as he matures. Schuh has shown the ability to throw his 77-81 slurve for a strike for a chase pitch, generating swing-and-misses against lefthanded hitters. Schuh’s two-pitch repertoire makes him profile as a lefty reliever, but coaches rave about his work ethic and aptitude, suggesting he has a chance to reach his ceiling.

    • Speaking of a walking bridge, I wish they’d put one right where the pedestrians cross from lots B/C over to the stadium.  Coming off the MLK ramp towards the stadium, making a left to then access lots A, B and C is a nightmare because the people directing traffic aren’t very good at judging how much pedestrian traffic to let through before they let cars go.  I’ve seen traffic back up onto the MLK for 30-40 minutes at well-attended games at times due to this problem.  A pedestrian bridge there would solve 90% of this problem.  They might still need to accommodate people who have mobility issues, but that’s not a constant stream of hundreds of people.  
    • The casino, Top Golf, and M8 brewery are all on the east side of the highway (as the stadiums are).   Assuming you are talking 295/Russell Street. Yes, Checkerspot Brewing [new location] and the other breweries in Pigtown are on the other side.   But if you cross by the casino, there are stoplights and such.   And once you get as far north as Ravens stadium, Russell Street is elevated and you can walk at street level underneath it, as thousands of Ravens fans do every game when they visit those breweries or the Gameday firehouse or when they park in the many lots in Pigtown. I admit there is a BIT of a disconnect if you want to go to some of the breweries in Pigtown like Pickett's or Wico Street before or after an Oriole game.  You can't really walk the way the crow flies.    Either go south of Ravens stadium  and walk over to them, or go to Pickles and walk along Washington Street and cross MLK at the light there to get to them. But I don't think it's that bad.  
    • I'm thinking as much with my heart as my head. It would be a bummer if, after the roller coaster of 162 games  and those eight hard-fought wins against the Rays and all those agonizing days where the teams were two games apart, it was all for nothing except one extra home game in yet another series against them. I don't want to ever see the Rays again in 2023. I want Adam Frazier's double off Fairbanks and Mullins's sac fly to have closed the book on them for the year. Thinking with my head, I also would rather play the Rangers. The Rays have almost as good a lineup but more speed and a scary bullpen.
    • Also didn't help what happened in Federal Hill after the Thursday game when they clinched. Oriole players were also celebrating around there 
    • I think it's absurd that the O's have the best record in the AL, and somehow wouldn't have to face MIN until the ALCS. Give me Texas please. The Rays bullpen is nasty, and I don't want another series like the KC sweep.
