I did not stop anyone from talking about anything. I did not shout anyone down. The original poster and I were just fine. You are the one trying to make something out of nothing.

It's something to me, I'll just chalk it up to you hurting your back or something with the blizzard. Let it go and I will.

TeamSchop6, I have to ask. How old are you? That sounds like something I naively would have said about Tim Nordbrook or Dyar Miller or Taylor Duncan a long time ago.

He never said that someday he could or should replace Manny, you brought that up. You were not being nice. You called him a child, Because you used to feel positive about players when you were one. No need to talk about rules or what is allowed. We get far too much bullying here.

Anyway. It got way too far of topic here.

Will he get the call to AAA soon? I know he's not a prospect but not like he'd be taking someone's spot at Norfolk.

As long as David Washington and Pedro Alvarez are there, no. He's just an org guy, may get to Norfolk next year and get a September cup of coffee if he is still crushing and things fell off the rails.

What makes you think he doesn't? 

He's a first base only guy who is old for his level, he'll have hit for more power than he is now to profile.

For comparison, DJ Stewart (who many around here think isn't much of a prospect) has the same ISO (isolated slugging, a decent measure of power), a better BB to K ratio, is two years younger and plays a tougher defensive position, and has more value on the basepaths.

I remember this guy.   As a mets fan we talked about him a bunch some years back, occasionally with optimism.   60-70 power potential and not much else.  Bad glove.   That he's moved to first full time is something people were predicting 4 years ago, and there's not much opportunity for righty first basemen unless they hit the ball really well.    I could see him getting a cup of coffee in September if there's space on the 40 and doing OK but as others have said, he's probably not a prospect, though to his credit, he's taken a big step in the right direction by hitting .300 for you guys in AA and his K rate isn't bad for a power guy,

It would still be fun to see him get a cup of coffee in the majors though.   I'd turn on the TV for that.

Rodriguez won the Double A Home Run Derby.

He's having a nice season and I expect he will play in the big leagues in some capacity at some point. Unfortunately 1B/DH is not an area where there are going to be any openings in Baltimore any time soon.

Best bet is either September or a trade. Maybe a Rule 5.

He's a season away from being near a call up. Mancini had way better numbers in Bowie and it still took him a full year in AAA. He would just take up a spot on the 40 man. 

I like the guy. He's just going to have to a big year in AAA just to be where David Washington is at this year.

    • No, they can’t fit them both in all likelihood, unless they do the smart thing and make some trades, which they should have done already.
    • A lot good they did 😛 Off topic that was the excuse used when the team wasn't hitting the last 2 weeks of the regular season. It wasnt true considered it continued in the playoffs..    Hopefully the Mateo PAs is under. With Felix gone and Bradish and Means missing time they are going to win as many of those games where they only score 1 or 2 runs that seemed to go through a lot last year
    • The problem is you only get 13 spots. Right now it's hard to see how you could fit both Kjerstad and Cowser on the roster without an injury or trade. As it is, for either of them to make the roster, Mateo has to be the defensive OF guy (which is OK, since Hays and it seems Cowser could also be adequate defensive subs, as well as Westburg). Adley McCann Mountcastle O'Hearn Gunnar Urias Westburg Mateo = 8 spots  Mullins Hays Santander = 3 spots That leaves two spots. Holliday or Maton/Wong gets one.  I just don't see a way to fit both Kjerstad and Cowser without an injury or move. Still, one of Kjerstad/Cowser can play the Hicks 3-4x per week role with the other being the next man up. There will be struggles and there will be injuries and both will get to play that role at times, maybe more. If Kjerstad and Cowser have success in their opportunities, they may well push Hays to the 5th OF spot, or O'Hearn to AAA, but I don't think we make those moves prematurely. I think both get 300+ AB's this year but they don't have to make the opening day roster for that to happen. Will be interesting to compare the end of year AB's for Cowser, Kjerstad, O'Hearn, and Mountcastle.   
    • If Buck O’Neil were there yesterday, he’d tell Roch about how he heard a sound that he’d never heard before. And it was Babe Ruth hitting that ball. And then he didn’t hear it again until a few years later, and it was Josh Gibson hitting that ball. Then he didn’t hear it again until it was Bo Jackson hitting that ball. And then he didn’t hear it again until it was Kyle Stowers hitting that ball. 
    • Updated through leap year game. - Mateo keeps getting SS starts but no outfield time. - Basallo takes BP - Yennier Cano has been put on a milk carton - McKenna hitless while battling for a spot - Holliday has first good game at the plate - Burnes struggles - Kimbrel, Coulombe and Webb all scored upon. (Bullpen not looking strong in early going)  
    • Everyone excited about hot starts this spring.  Meanwhile, not a peep about Jorge who’s crushing the ball right now.   Looks like he’s in mid April form.   Jorge, if only this could last longer than a few weeks or a month or two.   When Jorge doesn’t commit too early he’s a dangerous (I didn’t say good) hitter.   He must drive the hitting coaches crazy.
