  1. scarey1999

    Gulf Coast League

    Certainly not the ideal start. 0-3 with 2 K’s and a groundout to 2nd so far thru 6.
  2. I am all in on this draft. Not one “bad” pick IMO. Some real steals. Love the trade up to get Sweat even if we have Indy a little too much pick value back. He’s the type of impact pass rusher that we will need with Smith gone and Kerrigan getting older. Signed some good UDFAs as well. The Michigan OT being one to watch.
  3. Fun fact. I played college hoops with his son, Chris.
  4. That was a “good” loss last night and will help come tourney time. Tough to beat a team when they only turn it over twice. Terps beat UVA in just about every statistical category except for that one and the final score.
  5. That was a wild game. Tough way to end with the blowout loss to PSU, but I hope they return Canada in somebody capacity. The team really seemed to rally around him and did a lot of good things, espciailly given the turmoil. This is a very young team that has a shot to do some good things if they can get the right pieces in place.
  6. Maybe all the BamaSkins guys can help him make the required changes to get on the right path? Low risk, high upside move. I’m good with it.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
