    • Pretty fair list.  So based on the 10 ups and 17 downs, would you consider the overall start of the season disappointing so far?
    • To some extent I feel like the use of Kyle Bradish's 6.8 years will be the story of if MLB and the MLBPA do anything about pitcher carousels in that time.    If the Arm Barns stay so big you can liberally enjoy every Driveline Student of the Month throwing their arms out 13 out of 26 weeks, using Kyle Bradish pitches 60-90 any given night may not be that big of a value proposition. How quickly does baseball want to drum Trey Mancini's early 30's reflexes out of the league?
    • Jeopardy! round Answer: 24-18-17-14-13-13-12-11-10 Question: How many pitches did each Oriole bat see in Saturday's game? Up to 5th today with one of the Big Six down.
    • This is sort of like Tony’s power rankings, but I’m evaluating players based on my expectations and hopes for them going into the season.   Here’s the rules: nobody’s allowed to be stagnant.  Their stock is either up or down. Guys who haven’t played yet due to injuries are stock down so far as I’m concerned because I hoped they’d be playing by now.  DSL/FCL guys are excluded since their season hadn’t started. These grades may seem harsh in some cases, but remember, the standard is what I hoped or expected.  Stock up: Rutschman, Rodriguez, Hall, Henderson, Norby, Bradish, Bautista, Rhodes, Williams, Haskin. Stock down: Mayo, Cowser, Stowers, Westburg, Kjerstad, Rom, Pinto, Lowther, Baumler, Baumann, Ortiz, Vavra, Young, Willems, Deson, Servideo, Rangel. I didn’t include Basallo, Hernandez or Trimble (who we knew was out for the year).    Just because I put someone on the stock down list doesn’t mean I don’t think highly of them or that I think they can’t bounce back.  It just means I was hoping for a bit more.    
    • He will need to adjust better both in game and between games as hitters have seen him more and he needs to be less predictable the second time through .. otherwise he will be a bullpen guy. 
    • FWIW Eno Sarris on this weekend's Rates and Barrels podcast guessed Top 15-20 come midseason re-ranks based on a seemingly flawless AA breakout while still 20 (seasonal age 21). Colorado's opposite SS this week Ezequiel Tovar also looks like a main rival for an Eastern League MVP award I really hope he doesn't get the playing time to challenge for.
