You mean the board or the prospect ranking websites of the world?

I mean I understand the concerns on the other side. Former top pitching prospect in all of baseball gets hurt, gets treated with some crazy new surgery then comes back and is throwing three miles per hour slower.

I could see where folks would think he is done for.

I don't really see a ton of excitement for him on this board per se. I see a lot of people saying don't trade someone with a ton of market value, for one year of Upton or Kemp's horrible K. But I'm not sure there are a ton of posts gushing over Bundy. So I wasn't sure what the poster was referring to.

Oh I agree. I think some posters are being incredibly pessimistic concerning Bundy. I think he was pretty much where he was supposed to be last fall and should be impressive this spring.

I think I am about as high on him as anyone is publicly admitting.

Bundy is a spectacular young pitcher who got hurt. Got fixed. Is ready to go. Much like Jose Fernandez and Matt Harvey. Just like them. To think otherwise is pretty foolish.

Why is it TOR starter or bust for Bundy? Ideally at least 1 of Gausman, Bundy and Harvey develop into that Ace level pitcher. Realistically if all 3 of them develop into capable starters that is huge. 6 years of control for all 3 of them to fill out a rotation. Right now a #4 type pitcher like Hammel or Feldman is getting 10million + on the open market.

Exactly. Even as #3-4 SP, that's a lot of value.

    • He is on the 40 man roster as of today. 40-Man Roster | Baltimore Orioles https://www.mlb.com/orioles/roster/40-man
    • We just live in an instant gratification society nowadays so it's not that surprising. The Orioles have won two or three while Holliday takes his lumps so that's the good thing and last night, no matter what he did at the plate they were losing that one. Pitchers are really coming at him with their best stuff and I haven't seen him swing through many hittable pitches. Saying all that, the amount of pure whiff so far has been surprising for sure. Through his first three games he has a 59.1% WHIFF rate and part of that might be the pure amount of pitches he's seen with only six pure fastballs. Welcome to the big league kid. They know who you are, they have your scouting report and statcast data from the major leagues, and they're going to pitch you like a super star until you make the adjustments and become one. Not the start anyone thought he'd have and he probably needs to sit against Hall today since he's typically tough on lefties. He'll get there. It just may take a little more time than we had hoped.
    • 4/18  3 innings 4/23. 5 innings 4/28 replaced by Means and back to the bullpen. 🙂
    • From Roch yesterday: “Manager Brandon Hyde said reliever Yohan Ramírez, acquired from the Mets yesterday for cash considerations, should report to the team within the next few days. “The Orioles will need to make a corresponding move on the 26-man roster.” That certainly doesn’t sound like they’re going to try putting him through waivers right now.  
    • I went to the game as part of a fundraiser for my daughter's school, so I was happy to go.  But it was not fun to watch.  But I need to know from others if it seemed like the Brewers were being a little showboaty or sort of in your face-ish.  One instance in particular makes me ask, before the benches cleared, was in maybe the 4th or 5th inning, the Brewers struck out an Oriole batter on a close pitch with the batter sort of standing stunned in the box when their catcher pops up, bounded a couple leaps in the air (edit - toward his bench) and hurled the ball into the upper deck.  The batter was still in the box.  It all happened fast, but I was kind of stunned.  I haven't seen anything like that. I'm sorry on not having better details our seats were in 81 under cover with no vantage point of the Jumbotron. lol  and other than the phone I had trouble following who was up or any other info about the game in the midst of my daughter talking my ear off the whole time which was, admittedly, the whole reason for going to the game in the first place.  Good night out, terrible game.
    • I’m unclear how the plan to stretch him out would work. 
    • All you say/propose could be correct. But I struggle to see the problem/issue. All players at the professional level are independent contractors at the end of the day. Yes, they want to win and are hyper competitive, but they also want to get paid. He is one year away from receiving generational transforming money and he knows that his performance will determine that. When it comes to him viewing the Orioles as an oasis in a desert, why would he do that? He’s coming from a winning/successful organization and going to another. The Orioles have not done anything on the field (during his tenure as a pro) that is any better than the Brewers. We HOPE that they get there, but they have a long way to go.
