  1. Couch, Robinson and one other placed on leave this morning. Also, the first recruit to decommit. I’d expect there to be others as this thing opens up more. https://www.testudotimes.com/maryland-terps-football-recruiting/2018/8/11/17678842/maryland-football-jordan-mcnair-dj-durkin-parker-moorer
  2. This can’t be good. Just when we all thought maybe DJ was the guy to turn around the program, this drops in light of the unfortunate death of Jordan McNair. Im guessing he’ll be fired in the coming days. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/24342005/maryland-terrapins-football-culture-toxic-coach-dj-durkin

    Very rough debut for Blaine Knight

    In his second inning, struck out the first batter then gave up a walk followed by a single. He was lifted after that. He only threw 29 pitches but 19 of them were strikes. Final line: 1.1 IP 5H 1ER 1BB 1K 1HBP 2 GO 0 FO. Was lucky to have only given up the one run.

    Very rough debut for Blaine Knight

    4 hits allowed (to the first 4 batters of the game), including a double, in his first inning of work. He also hit a batter. Only 1 run scored. With all of that action, only needed 16 pitches.

    Bye Bye Valencia?

    Have to think we could get something back for him in a post-waiver trade. Might not be much, but he's got to have some value. Especially with how he destroys lefties.

    Player Nicknames

    That is not what la gente means. Direct translation is the people as pointed out already. I think she got that confused with el varón which means “the man”...Yefry’s nickname.

    GCL Oriole Notes 2018

    Sparks had a good debut too. Sucks that he lost this season developmentally wise due to his injury. Jacob Brown was pretty good last year too, but he's not doing nearly as well there now this year after repeating the league. That is a pretty small list though overall. That's probably why I made the comment. Not a lot that stands out there. Perhaps that's the norm within other organizations too, not sure. I think it has to do with the fact that the O's draft and sign more HS pitchers volume wise than hitters so you don't notice the hitters as much. There are some others HS draftees you didn't mention that we pretty bad in their GCL debuts. Alexis Torres, Josh Hart, Branden Becker, Alejandro Juvier, Jonah Heim. I forgot all about Heinrich. Traded to AZ for Michael Bourn in Aug 2016. Didn't play at all in 2017 except for some extended spring games with the O's after being released by the Dbacks in March 2017. O's released him a few months later. He's now in the Frontier League with a 552 OPS in limited duty as a 22 year old. Judging by his twitter feed, super strong kid, but his swing has some major mechanical flaws.

    GCL Oriole Notes 2018

    Hopefully, we will start to see a change within a couple of years given the philosophical shift the front office is preaching about with regard to developing young international FA talent. Having said that, even most of our HS draftees seem to generally underwhelm in the GCL. Particularly the bats. This year's crop of HS pitchers have done well which is a nice, pleasant surprise.

    Orioles - Victor Victor Mesa

    No he’s just working out in the Dominican. Perhaps trying to establish residency there too but no one really knows for sure.

    Ryan Mountcastle 2018

    Sure, to some degree. However if we can get an extra year of team control out of RM, or any of our top prospects, I’d hope the front office recognizes the importance of that.

    Ryan Mountcastle 2018

    Good to see him raking like he is, but I hope he stays in the minors the rest of this season and the start of the next. No reason at all to start his service time clock. They made that mistake with Hays last year, granted under much different circumstances surrounding the big league club and its direction.

    Who stood out in July?

    Not really. Basically an org guy. Almost 27 years old. Career stat line in 10 minor league seasons of 264/315/449/763. Wow, he made 44 errors in 127 games as a 19 yo in the SAL at 3B.

    Early AFL candidates

    Luke and Joey should be on the OH payroll if they are not already. Some serious analysis there, as always. Long time member, though short on posts, I think I speak for all of us when we say thanks for your top notch contributions.
