|2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)||A recent SB Nation winter meetings sim saw the mock A's trade Anderson, Choice, and $6M to the Phillies for Adam Morgan. If we leave aside the salary dump aspects of the trade, is Morgan worth such a package? How do you feel about the stuff and the shoulder?|
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
|I'm a fan of Choice so I don't think that works if it's just Morgan alone in the deal coming to Oakland. He's a nice prospect, but he's a max #3 for me. (Mark Anderson)|
|2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Random "watch list" question. What are your thoughts on Arismendy Alcantara and Adam Morgan?|
(Mitch from Iowa)
|Both are good players to watch. Higher on Alcantara than Morgan, but Morgan's much closer to making a major league impact. (Bret Sayre)|
|2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)||Adam Morgan, could he have a higher ceiling that Biddle based upon the reports from spring training?|
(Mike from Utica, NY)
|He might. Very good arm. Developing. I'd probably put him above Biddle at this point. (Jason Parks)|
|2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Any chance that Jesse Biddle or Adam Morgan get called up this year for the Phillies?|
(mrollo1 from Haddonfield, NJ)
|I think both would benefit from another full year in the minors, but if one is going to debut this year, my money would definitely be on Morgan. (Daniel Rathman)|
|2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)||How do you know what to grade a change up/breaking ball at? Is it deception, speed and movement? For example I saw Adam Morgan pitch recently. Heard buzz around him, but didn't read any grades. The Change-up looked fantastic in my opinion. 10 MPH less then his fastball, good deception. I would have to imagine that would grade 65-70, but I don't know if that is to agressive or to light. |
(rgatta from PA)
|I don't get to caught up in the 10 mph rule with a CH. For me, a good changeup starts with the arm action and speed, as you want it to come out of the hand like a fastball. If a pitcher can provide that deception, that half of the battle right there. The action on the pitch is important as well. I like to see movement to the arm side and/or heavy life that pushes the ball out of the hitting zone after it appears to be a fastball heading into it. You want the pitch to offer velocity separation, and anything over 7-8 mph works for me. It all starts with deception, and if you can get movement and good a good velo dip, you have the makings of a very good pitch. (Jason Parks)|
