Orlando 2077
« on: June 28, 2017, 03:02:52 PM »
Since losing its first 8 games to start the season, Orlando is 16-11 in their last 27 games (16-19 overall).  The Stars don't do anything particularly well, but do have a few outstanding individuals.  Cal Bass continues to improve with age.  Now 30, Bass is off to a great start posting a 1.17 ERA and 0.88 WHIP after his first 7 starts.  Unfortunately, he has only won 3 games due to lack of run support.  Orlando has scored 1 run in four of his starts and 3 runs in two other starts.  Things may be looking up as the Stars scored 8 runs in Bass' last start.

SP Bill Evans is also off to a fast start going 4-2 with a 2.29 ERA in his 7 starts.  Evans is a scrapper who has his ups and downs, but owns a career 3.69 ERA (3.60 FIP) in 118 big league starts.

At the plate, former rule 5 draftee Joaquín Ibarra  continues to mature and is batting .306 while slugging .468 in his first 35 games.  Ibarra has a +2.9 ZR at 2B after posting -13.9 in 49 games last season.  He now has a better overall rating at 2B than his natural position of SS.

Mario Marquis led the OTBA with 43 HR last season, but has only 4 so far in 2077.  Marquis has still contributed as the career .257 hitter is batting .301.  Marquis entered the OTBA as an international amateur free agent from Dominican Republic with a 3 contact, 5 power and 5 eye ratings (3-5-5).  He had improved to 5-7-5 by the time he reached the minor leagues and currently has ratings of 6-9-5 after peaking at 8-10-5 in 2075.  Marquis turns 30 in December and hopefully holds his current ratings for the next several years.
Roll out the barrel!
