It's time for David Lough to step forward

Stop obsessing about WAR which is a measurement of past performance and trust the baseball people and watch the games. That is my point.

Watching games without information to put what you are seeing in context is a great way to get a seriously skewed view of what is actually occurring.

And not watching the games at all is triffling. Gotta do both.

Maybe his BA and OBP is what it is because he is trying to crush everything over the right field wall.

And that is why Lough isn't a starter right there. If he would keep the ball on the ground, he would be a much better player all around.

As for his base stealing instincts...that might be a lost cause.

Big hit tonight though. We just can't throw away another big lead.

There is a thread on Snider's swing, but maybe there should be one on Lough's. For a smaller guy he has a swing that is incredibly long. Again, he provides value as a defender if used correctly and in small samples.

I'd say David Lough is stepping forward.

I'd agree with you if I could get the blood out of my eyes. :slytf:

    • Right..which is exactly what I just said. You don’t think he will be a good ML SS long term. Zero people agree with that. People agree that the arm isnt SS quality right now. They do believe the range, hands, etc..are ML quality.    So yea, your stance is you alone, which was and is my point. 
    • I am paying very close attention to SJ's spring. I am a huge fan and could see him make similar improvements as Bradish. The stuff is really good. Can he and the O's hone it in and salvage his potential? I think they can/will. 
    • You're just moving goal posts at this point. I have 100% stated and will continue to state that he is not going to be a good defender at SS.. because he will not be a good defender at SS. National publications are beginning to write more about his defensive limitations, so it isn't just me that sees it. He is better suited for 2B and I don't rule out a move to the OF. Gunnar, Joey and Jorge were/are far superior defenders to him right now and unless something happens to Gunnar, he will continue to pace JH on the defensive side. There's nothing wrong with moving JH to 2B. I've compared that combo up the middle to Seager and Semien but honestly I see more Cano in JH than Semien and I think we should be disappointed if JH is only Marcus Semien. 
    • romorr 1:30 Speaking of ZiPS, Fabian was pretty high there, but the K% was pretty horrid once he got to AA. How many prospects K that much, that figure it out at that level? Steep hill to climb, no?   Eric A Longenhagen 1:30 Yes and did film work on his defense, which isn't CF fit for me
    • Uh huh... see all of my posts about the more to SS than just arm strength. It's ok.. keep circling this. If the O's end up moving on from Gunnar in five or six years and they slide JH over to SS then, I'm sure that you will come back and point to how you predicted him as a ML SS in 2024. Good fer you, bud.     
    • We knew he was healthy last summer, no?   He pitched in five games in August/September and was throwing 96, I believe.  
    • How was I wrong about something that is yet to be proven?     And you have definitely hinted that he won’t be a good option at SS now or in the future…and that is with or without Gunnar or Ortiz.
