<< Henry started the thread.... we all knew that he was going to post about one person. He received the required response >> (3LT)

I think Alo deserves to be in the discussion. She has lived up to all the per-season expectations - and then some.
I enjoy reading about any other players that people see as viable candidates.

Here is a question for you, 3LT (and any others who wish to play along):
Do you think the five players listed in that article that was linked in post #2... are all more deserving than Alo as of today?
Do you think Alo deserves to be in the conversation?

Parker beat Osorio twice in 2016.

Osorio won two out of three in 2015.
They did not meet in 2017.
Parker leads with 3 wins to 2 losses vs. Osorio for their careers.

Henry: Surely you've figured out Lefty's shtick by now.

To me, it is Jordan in a runaway right now.

Greater numbers, better competition

You made that clear in your post #5 of this thread.
You didn't answer the questions I asked in my post #34.

Jordan's gonna be a great player. Perhaps she and Alo will get a chance to display their skills against each other in the WCWS.

I just don't think there is a conversation.

I see the second place person as like Tom Kite at the 1997 Masters.... No. 1 in the B flight.

But, if top 5 rocks your boat. For sure, Alo is Top 5

Parker totally deserved the award, so did Osorio, 2 amazing pitchers that have only gotten better.

We see the same thing every year.  OU has a low rpi because we don't play anyone.  Of course, OU has won a few CWS's in the past five years.  I'll tell you someone who did not win freshman of the year.  Yet, I think Osorio remembers the two walkoff home runs she hit against her as a freshman, one in the CWS.  I think Barnhill might remember the three run home run she hit in the seventeenth.  Florida may remember the three-run double that she hit the next night.  But, I don't think she got a vote for FOY.

I don't know that Alo is FOY.  It's a bit early.  I'd like to see if her approximately 500 BA persists along with her approximately 1000 slugging percentage.  If she continues to let the bad pitches sail by as she has recently, she should be OK, up to fifteen walks now, to go with 26 RBIs.  She doesn't seem to care whether she is going against good or bad pitching.  Has that in common with Chamberlain and Knighten.

We will probably have such a low rpi that we'll have to go to UCLA for a superregional.  Maybe we can settle this then.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Here are the numbers for these two great freshman players after Oklahoma's win today...

Player          G   AB   H   2B  3B   HR  EBH  TB  HB  BB  SO  SF  SB  CS    R   RBI    BA     OBP     SLG     OPS
A. Jordan    25   71  37    8    2     5    15   64    0  13    3    2    3    0    25   33   .521   .581     .901   1.482
J. Alo          24   64  31    4    0   10    14   65    1  17    7    1    3    1    23   25   .484   .590   1.016   1.606

The numbers sure don't seem to be agreeing with your suggestion that no one is any where near Jordan.

Your comparison to Tom Kite at the 1997 Masters seems quite silly to me.

Henry, I get that SoS means nothing to you, but it does to me.

Luckily for you, many people who hand out these awards are like you in ignoring SoS

So, aren't you lucky!!!

Mia Davison might be the sec freshman of the year and in the run of become the national freshman of the year.

I do believe that SoS should be taken into consideration...
but that factor does NOT put Jordan miles ahead of Alo.
It may put her ahead... but is a LOT closer than you would have us believe.

Alo to Jordan... is NOT at all like Kite to Woods.
Your 1997 Masters comparison is just ridiculous.

I'm just telling you my vote.

And, I also told you the others' votes (witness the Washington debacle in week 1)

Mia Davidson needs to be in the conversation.  One of my favorite travel ball players to watch is having a great freshman season.

The Bruins are a really good team. But, believe me, it does matter.

Jordan is making a strong statement to be the one. Elish is scary good and undefeated in college. Have not seen Alo play in big games against tough competition, but she was beast in travel ball.
