Adam Moore: Optimism!

This is a post about Adam Moore. I was wanting to write something that conveys my optimism for his major league career. It would say something to the affect that he’s still relatively young and that despite his age there still remains the possibility of making adjustments to the big league level.

Optimism! YAY!

With Olivo going on everyone is going to be talking about Moore … not that I really know what everyone talks about because I don’t live in Seattle and I have to make an effort to A) Listen to 710 or B) Read the paper.

Anyways,  this is the point where I show you his Minor League track record.

Numbers! YAY!

Look, good numbers! Check out his total number of at bats and then compare it to his overall statistics. See, good!

Here is more knowledge: did you know he was the #83 best prospect according to Baseball America at this time last season? Seriously check his Baseball-Reference page. It’s funny how quickly we(I) forget those types of things. Don’t get me wrong I knew he was a solid prospect I just quiet often forget how other organizations view him.

It just seems Moore never got much love from John Sickles or Adam Foster. Not that I generally really put a lot of stock in those guys. It’s just their stuff is more freely available and gets passed around a lot more.

This is the point where I would then weigh some of the other internal options within the organization. But lets face it, Josh Bard (as much as I like him as a backup)  and Chris Gimenez aren’t real starter options. The coaching staff will all empress upon everyone in the media that Adam Moore will still have to “earn” the spot and but that’s all talk.

Moore ended the season pretty positively and hit the ball pretty hard all season with unfortunate results. I think in general that the Olivo move was a pretty spazy move by the front office. Don’t get me wrong I can see some good coming from it, but generally you can find something good in just about anything that happens ask a bleeding optimist (that’s me).

Moore is now the starter as it should have been and Olivo will come back and play the back-up role. Game over Miguel. You lose.
