hot stove Saturday 2 PM
« Topic Start: January 26, 2024, 09:47:46 AM »
I think PB69 will be there, and I expect to kill a nice Saturday listening to spin from Davey, Rizzo, and Doo. I didn't see a solicitation of questions this year like in the past, which is sort of weird.

Any other SPH going?

I'll be there. Last year the food was better than it had been in the past. I should not have eaten right before the event.

Rizzo on Gallo - power needed for team. Lot of Ks and homers. Great D. Will play OF and 1b. Waited on market to come back to us. Good reputation, contenders add him in trades. People like to acquire him.

Huh? At least the previous universities seemed overlap regionally with this fanbase.  Are they just gonna stick a curly W on every entity everywhere?

Why not Colorado school of mines, or their sister college, the Colorado school of mimes?

Oh good, the “letting the market come to us” trope?

Was thinking the same thing.  One of his classic lines to put a PR sheen on the Lerner passion for penny pinching.

Riz status of reboot... right direction. Recreated org at all levels. Minors 2023 best development year for system.  Deepest. 5 pitchers already in majors. Appreciates patience of fans. Talks up cj skills and calls Ruiz catcher of future who is locked in. Thomas,. Mentions Irvin, Bennett. Minors. Youngest team in majors last year and even younger this year.

Davey on new coaches...
Known guys for a while. Cairo mentored by larussa. Parra d and running. Gutierrez for IF d. Mostly emphasizes knows them. Glad he has a for a few more years with club. likes direction. 24-27 time frame for playoff spots. [Rizzo says 2025 start of serious contention]

Gallo likes Nats style of play [odd because he's sort of a break from the put the ball in play and run style]. Mentor.

Doo on learning players ... met with analytics team on old players. Talked about what types of info giving pitching staff. Talked to players on what doing, how feeling.  How Arms feel. Not just numbers. Talks to staff about what pitchers trying to do. Talked about their strengths (here's where analytics come in] and building game plans. More data than pitching (Hickey) and bullpen coach (Boens) can handle so he adds on capacity.

Rizzo said Doo's experiences help him as a go between for analytics and players. Talked about how changed from hitter (1B) at UVa to pitcher, popped from team to team, MR to closer, came here, closed on WS winning team. Variety of experience makes him good for role.

calls ramos catcher of future lockedin.

Do you mean Ruiz?  If so, this makes no sense given his miserable D and mediocre bat last year.

Riz on pitchers- starters...emphasizes youth of staff. Gore more innings finished healthy. Same for gray irvin rutledge. Corbin eats innings, Williams made thru season [more IP thrown than in years].

Testament to med & conditioning staffs- used fewest starters in MLB.

Davey on cj- 2d half, pushed him to get on and get to 2d. This year challenge- get on base. Had tough conversations but he did it.

Riz - need to steal more. BBs are doubles now. Mentions Thomas needing to run more.
Wants players to earn green lights.

Davey- thomas will steal more.

Doo on DC and Nats ... good fit for them (him and wife), loved team, won, loved city. New role is a chance to roll up sleeves and help org.
