Is the Baltimore Sun right with their Top 10 Prospects?


wildcard

Recommended Posts

The Sun just published their list of the O's Mid season Top 10 Prospects. I don't think Tony has done one since last November. The Orioles website has a list that considers that Gausman and Schoop have moved to the the majors.

My question is do you think the Sun's list is right for the current Top 10?

1, Bundy

2. Harvey

3. Ed Rod

4. Sisco

5. Alvarez

6. Walker

7. Tim Berry

8. Hart

9. Bridwell

10. Yastrzemski

Opinions?

I do not think Tony-OH would agree with that.

Bridwell has all the stuff and none of the results. He is a huge enigma for me. How many seasons of poor results does a pitcher need to have before he doesn't get any more mulligans? I wouldn't have him on this list.

Hart could be a similar story; I think you need results before you get on any lists. Esposito didn't get any favors from anyone for underperforming so I don't think he should either.

Add Zach Davies, bump Alvarez below Walker. Tack Tyler Wilson or Brian Gonzalez onto the end and that's my list. I'm just really low on Bridwell and Hart at the moment.

I'd be curious to hear the thoughts of Stotle and others on Yaz being 10.

Yaz is deserving of at least the ten spot, and his promotion to Bowie at 23 puts him in pretty good company. His comp from Bowden (I think?) is McLouth, which seems reasonable. Unless something changes he'll be an average major league outfielder, and probably more along the lines of a fourth OFer.

Thanks for the analysis, good stuff.

You may not have been paying close enough attention to what Bridwell has done this season. His overall ERA is 4.08, but since May 1 he's at 3.00 and for his last 10 starts he's at 2.86. He's made steady progress this season. You could debate whether he belongs in the top 10, but I would not say he is getting "none of the results" this season.

I'd have Zach Davies (3.78 ERA at Bowie) on my list instead of Hart.

In July his ERA is 4.50. With a nice 6.75 BB/9 to boot. Those stats are closer to his career numbers than what you posted. Since we're getting personal maybe it was you who was the one not paying attention?

I didn't think I was getting personal. The 4.50 ERA in July is due to one poor start on July 2. Eight of his last 10 starts have been good, including his last two. I think my interpretation of his season is pretty objective. Just ask Bridwell's mother, who posted this two years ago when I said something critical about Bridwell:

Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forward. Frobby let's talk about all the crow your going to be eating. I bet your 40+ years old and I bet you live in your Mothers basement. Let's here about all your kids accomplishments. Oh I'm sorry as negative as you are if you have any they will not be successful. Bridwell is fine and will prove so in time. Until you know all the facts don't comment.

Ah, baseball parents. I've been fortunate to meet some absolutely great folks through the draft process, but boy are there some defensive and/or volatile mama and papa bears out there...

    • You are severly discounting a lot of players from that era.  Jones, Markakis, Machado, Wieters, JJ Hardy, Davis, Britton, Tillman, Miguel Gonzalez were all core players to that special 5 year run. Chris Davis hit 197 in the 5 seasons from 2012-2016 JJ Hardy won three gold golves during that time. Zack Britton was a shut down reliever for 3 of those 5 years Chris Tillman was in our rotation for all 5 of those years and was our defacto "Ace" during that time timeout question Miguel Gonzalez was in our rotation for 4 of those years and very good for three of them Markakis was only there 2012-2014 but is absolutely a core oriole Manny Machado was a three time all star and 2 gold gloves during that time all while being one of the youngest and brightest up and coming stars in the game
    • If we're keeping Mountcastle, he had better improve his production at the plate.  We would need a lot more slugging out of he and Stowers, both.  I am hoping Rutschman hits with more power, too - especially from the right side of the plate.  The league adjusted to Henderson pretty well and his last few weeks reallytalked off from that hot start.  He needs to make his adjustments, now.  He'll be okay. 
    • Listening to your comments I made a few changes.   Now calling the list Core/Keepers. Added Mullins and Tyler Wells to the list. I hear the comments on Mountcastle but this at his age (25) with  his development defensively.  At this point he just had a bad offensive year and is likely to improve.
    • I swear it looked like he just grooved it for him.
    • Makes it look easy. Easy power... we'll take it!
    • Yeah, that's it.  Not sure Gray Rod is even part of the core yet because he hasn't even pitched in the majors.  I'm not suggesting that Elias is looking to trade him unless he is part of a trade for another core player. What was the core for the 2012-2016 Orioles.  I'm going to say it was Wieters and Jones.  I guess you could add Markakis.  The rest of the players came and went or just had a great season or 2 (Davis).  I think that was part of the problem with the 2012-2016 O's, was the core wasn't big enough and there wasn't any elite players in the core.  Did anyone regularly include Wieters, Jones and Markakis in the best players in baseball conversation. 
    • I can't consider a player at a prime offensive position putting up a .724 OPS a core player.  I would be surprised if Elias doesn't have several players in the minors who he considers possible replacements for Mountcastle.
