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.

    • Holy moley. 10 HR and 30 RBI… through April 19. 
    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
