2017-06-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have any predictions for top guys that could end up going to school? I agree on Thompson, by the way.
(SansRig from Kansas City)
Maybe Daniel Cabrera (prep OF from GA), Terriez Fuller (prep OF from GA as well), and Jake Eder (prep LHP from FL, Vanderbilt commit, tough sign). (Steve Givarz live during the MLB Draft)
2011-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)In five years Dellin Betances will be: a)mid-rotation starter with frontline stuff? OR: b)Daniel Cabrera redux.
(T from NYC)
C. Late-inning reliever. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-10-05 19:23:33 (link to chat)Where does the Phillies "Big Three" rank in terms of the best top 3 pitchers in one rotation in the last two decades or so?
(Ryan from Springfield, PA)
Towards the top, but slightly behind the 2005 Orioles C-Squared-L trio of Daniel Cabrera, Bruce Chen, and Rodrigo Lopez. (Roundtable Administrator)
2009-04-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)19 team league 5by5 waiver pickup: Shawn Hill or Daniel Cabrera?
(Ryan from NY)
Hill. I have him myself. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)To follow up on Daniel Cabrera: He has changed from throwing a 4 seam fastball, which he had trouble commanding and which was pretty straight, to a 2 seam fastball, which he commands better and which has a natural sink. It seems to have made a very big difference, and supports a belief that he has turned a corner.
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Interesting. Adjustments like that are always good to know about, and definitely do support the idea that he's a changed pitcher. (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-04-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)At a season ticket holder's forum on Saturday, the O's GM MacPhail said that the organization believes in slow and steady advancement of its young pitchers. As an example, he noted that despite an excellent season last year at A+ Frederick, Chorye Spoon was not invited to the major league camp and is likely to go to AA Bowie to begin this season. He said that he's hoping to get the Orioles to the position they were in in 1982-1983 when Mike Boddicker could not break his way into the majors until he was 29 (in 1983),but when he did come up he was really ready. What are your thoughts on that philosophy of development. It's sure a change from the philosophy that brought up Daniel Cabrera from A ball in the middle of the season!
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Actually, Boddicker was 25 in 83, and got brief looks in each of the three previous years. Luckily, the 40-man roster and option systems prevent the O's from hording prospects in the minors until they're all 29 and 'really ready.' Really ready is a totally realative term and each player is different. Wasn't Andruw Jones really ready at 19? Griffey? (Kevin Goldstein)
