Where does Rosa fit in next year?

Schoop will probably be playing SS at Aberdeen. He might go to Frederick just out of necessity.

Well does Florimon get promoted back to Bowie? With Miclat at Norfolk? I think that might be setting up a few players to fail since they don't seem ready for those jumps.

Is Rosa even a realistic prospect at this point? If he has to be promoted beyond his ability offensively so more highly touted prospects can be at the level that is appropriate I don't have a problem with it.

I think Mr. Machado will be playing SS next year at Delmarva next year with Schoop moving to second and Givens at 3B. Rosa will probably be back in Delmarva in a utility role unless they push up to Frederick for his glove.

Would Narron not start at 3rd base at Delmarva or you don't think he starts that high next year.

Although a very small sample size, 10 strike outs in 22 at bats does not indicate a player who is going to move quickly. I look for Narron to start next year in Bluefield.

Does Schoop not have the glove to stick at SS? That'd be really disapointing

Probably more to do with the fact that they need to be at the same level and Machado is a MUCH better prospect, 2nd fiddle has to move, that's how it goes. Ask Roberts about it...he came up as a SS.

Yea I can understand that. Didnt Roberts move because he didnt have the arm to play short? Who was the prospect at the time who booted him over (I cant remember and am just curious)

Does Givens have the bat to even play 3B, is it to late to move him to pitcher. I don't like being negative but I don't think Givens will turn into much of a prospect.

He and Hairston came up at the same time, they were back and forth because of injuries, and then back and forth again at 2B when we brought Bordick back.

I honestly haven't gotten the report on Schoop yet but he needs to be in Delmarva next year but the $5 million bonus baby needs to be there too so you can guess who's playing shortstop.

That's a good question. Not sure what the Orioles plan to do now that they have Machado. It'll be an interesting decision for John Stockstill and his crew. With Machado and Schoop, you have to wonder if converting Givens back to the mound might not be the best idea.

    • The sneaky thing about O’Hearn is how many loud outs he made against the shift. With no infielders in RF, I am curious what he’ll do. Not saying he is going to be some kind of star, but perhaps a useful piece. 
    • Eh, it's an overpay, but I don't hate O'Hearn as a backup. There's enough there to suggest he may be helped by no shifts and his EV and hard hit %s are decent. I'm betting he could have waited for him to clear waivers, and signed him to a minor league/major league split contract. I think Elias really wants a left-handed hitting first baseman but he has Montcastle right now.
    • I have seen on conversations a lot of the high paid MLB players build their own facilities with all the 'tools'.  Driveline's expertise is the utilization of those tools, data analysis, and developing the training plans for their clients.  Players that utilize them often become coaches/trainers themselves if they can't reach the highest level.  Thus the 'driveline' culture and thoughts grow.  Of course, others out there also believe Driveline and similar programs to be the problem and not the cure.  Players ultimately buy into what/who they think will help them be better.  Internal or External to the team they play for. The MiLB clients at Driveline are likely the ones trying to improve themselves above and beyond the 'coaches and staff' of the major league minor league coaches.  Ones that have enough signing bonus and commitment to live in Seattle or Phoenix in the offseason.  Another facility in AZ is called PUSH PERFORMANCE.  The top facilities also have Physical therapists on staff.   Curious with changes in technology and scouting how many college kids that don't go to Cape Cod league would choose to develop somewhere like Driveline vs playing summer ball.  If they or their folks have the $ to invest.  Similar conversation to stick to the school/team staff or look outside to improve yourself. Likely two types of offseason programs.  Pitchers and Position Players.  After the season, just about everyone needs some time off.  Likely 3-4 weeks.  Use November and December to build muscle mass and strength.  Use January to take that new strength and apply it to improve speed/quickness.  Then 2-3 weeks start with the more precise swing timing, pitch location, with Live AB's etc.   I don't think players are using Spring Training to get ready for the season.  I think the off season is to get ready, build on it during Spring training (trying to stay healthy) in order to improve your level for the season.
    • Eastern shore MD is some of the cheapest water front property available in the US.  If he’s a country boy, as I imagine he is, he will like the area.  Imagine having a nice duck hunting lodge could be quite attractive, and as you mentioned a solid way to diversify.  Have to imagine Boras schools his clients on that. 
    • I haven’t had a chance to see Cowser play in person yet.  I agree Mayos talent is off the charts.  Size, arm Strength and raw power at his age  put him on a very elite bracket.  I’m pulling for him to put it all together.  He just makes me a little nervous to get too excited.  I’ll happily eat crow if he mashes and will be right there rooting for him.  
    • I agree whole heartedly that it depends on the individual.    Odor for instance was not great statistically but I do believe is presence in clubhouse last year helped us a lot especially with the young Latin players. 
    • Mona Lisa does have a moustache if you get up really close.
