The Elephant In The Room (International Talent)


Recommended Posts

But the O's do lead the league in elephants in the room - they need large doubly enforced steel rooms.  The have one for ignoring international talent, one for who's in charge of major player signings and acquisitions, one for not developing pitchers who later show their talent elsewhere, one for not doing anything about extending or trading major assets such as Machado, Schoop, and Britton, one for the lame duck status of both the GM and Manager, and maybe a whole separate one for whatever Brady Anderson's role is.  Tusk tusk.

Julio Pablo Martinez, a 21-year-old center fielder, (is) one of the top young players in Cuba and has talent on par with a first-round pick if he were in the draft. A lefty around 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, Martinez in his last season in Cuba hit .333/.469/.498 with 52 walks, 30 strikeouts and six home runs in 264 plate appearances with 24 stolen bases in 29 tries. Martinez has a promising combination of power, speed and athleticism in center field.
