Fun with numbers...

 

Rooker in about 520 PA for Chattanooga: 828 OPS

Jaylin Davis in about 220 PA:831 OPS

(Davis is a year older.And I'm not saying that Davis is going to be better.But, still.)

 

Also, Rortvedt now OPS'ing 720 with an OBP of 347.At a place/league were offensive numbers are typically a bit depressed.In his 20-year-old season.As a player that most (not all) analysts have considered a glove-first catcher up to this point.I would have to think that this is viewed as a very encouraging year for Rortvedt within the organization.

Maybe people saw this on Twitter, but Andrew Vasquez was promoted to Rochester today. Casey Crosby off the DL for Chattanooga.

I think I’d have gone with Larnach and Enlow for the POD’s.

Seth, have you ever gone through and done a player of the day leaderboard?

Over his last ten games, Vargas is hitting.432 with 5 jacks and 16 RBIs. Small sample size, but whatever he’s doing, let’s get Sano doing the same. Is Vargas on the 40 man and will se see him September 4th?

My predictions would be no and no. He's not the guy the Twins drafted. Injuries have taken away a ton of his stuff. He's left-handed, so I guess I'd never say never.

WWBD. or,what would Baltimore, the currently worst team in MLB do? They’d have first choice at the waiver wire. Would Jay be an improvement? Probably.

Going to be interesting come November to see if the Twins put Jay on the 40-man roster.Certainly doubtful based on his performance.Would he be lost if they don't
 
With time running out, the Kernels have a 4.0 game lead to make the playoffs.This is an exciting roster and should be fun to follow their playoff run.Was Enlow's 8 K's the most of his career?


Excuse my naïveté but are Kernles games available online?

I may not fit in here but I consider it pretty happy for Beeker

And his best friend, Bunson Honeydew.

Jay wouldn't be on waivers -- he would just be available in the Rule 5 draft. But the order would be the same anyway, and Baltimore has been pretty aggressive with Rule 5, and that was before their 2018 collapse and trades.
