BA on JRod

Post by D-train » Mon Jan 17, 2022 7:39 pm

btw Is there a single soul in all of baseball be it GM's, managers, coaches or fans that would trade #1 prospect Adley Rutchman for JRod????

AD: Turns 24 in 3 weeks; 2021 in AA .271/.392/.508/.901

JRod: Just turned 21 on New year's eve so almost 3 YEARs younger; 2021 in AA .361/.462/.546/1.007

Only advantage Rutschman has is he plays a prime defensive position and Julios bound for a corner position.

I wouldn't trade a better bat for a worse bat regardless of what position they play!

Yep, I thought of that but agree that JRod's age and superior bat are FAR more valuable. Also, Rutschman is also listed as a 1B!

This is why I don't trust scouts or their reports:

From Prospect live:

JRod
Run: Speed is a good for now, but should regress as he ages. Lacks quickness and burst out of the box or in the field. Has long strides, just a bit bulky. Doesn't lumber, Tons of hustle. Aggressive approach to steal an occasional bag. Good instincts on the base paths. Grade: 50
He stole 21 bases in only 74 games! The clown that wrote this didn't even bother to take 11 seconds to check his stats??????

That projects to about 45 in a big league season. Starling Marte led all of baseball with 47 and Merrifield was second with 40.

Steal an occasional bag? :roll: :roll: :roll:

I doubt he steals 20+ bases a year in MLB regularly, but he has enough speed to run out a few infield singles, keep from getting doubled up too easily, and cover at average to bove average ground in the outfield. I think he'll work to stay l lean enough to keep his speed. He's not going to be a Nelson Cruz who is a liability in the outfield. I think he'll pride himself on his speed and do what he can to keep it above average.

Yeah, SBs aren't going to be his focus, but the point is that a lot of people take what scouts say as gospel. If they are this wrong about that (guy probably just lazily though big guy, can't be a base stealer) then what else are they wrong about. Jesus Montero being regarded as a top prospect also comes to mind. Guy was literally a zero tool player but probably hyped by one Yankee scout and everyone else fell in line.

I love the Edgar like .300 .400 .500 line. I love the fact that he is far above that at .361 .462 . 546... He did it at 20 so we could be hopeful that as a Mariner we have our #3 hitter

Like I said get Olson in a trade and add Bryant and the offense should be above average. The offense needs 1 dependable middle-of-the-order lefty.
Toro may or may not develop. Depending on him 100% is not something I think is smart.
Getting Olson 1B/DH=
France 1B-Dh- 3B -2B, Asa 2B his 130 135 OPS+ is Cano,

Getting Bryant is a 3B-OF-DH. That along with 1 more starter, (Castillo, Bassitt, Montas) and a lefty BP stud and contention in 2022. On Olson he has a .774 career OPS in SaFECO OVER ABOUT 40 GAMES and a .875 road OPS

1. JP L SS .340 OBP 105 OPS+
2. Frazier R .340 career 2021 .370 OBP 113 OPS+
3. France R1B-DH .370 OBP and 130 OPS+
4. Olson L 1B-DH 2021 .370 OBP 153 OPS+ Career .350 OBP and 134 OPS+
5. Bryant R 124 OPS+ .353 2021 OBP career 132 OPS+ and .376 OBP
6. Haniger R 125 OPS+ .340 OBP
7. JK L OF 115 OPS+ ????????
8. Murphy C R 97 OPS+
9. Lewis OF 120 OPS+
Bench
Cal/Torrens S-R, Toro S Utility, Dilly Utilit R 90 OPS+, OF Fraley L 105 OPS, JRod at some point other depth includes Trammell, Marmelejos,
