    Harold Baines.....Lee Smith in Hall of Fame

    I know you didn’t write it but it should be corrected to read St Michael’s High School.

    The Win rule for pitchers needs to be changed

    What can be mind boggling at times is a case like Tyler Wilson- pitched 4 2/3 solidly and doesn't qualify for the W. A reliever can come in and pitch 1/3 inning and get the W. Oh well, as long as it's a win that's all that really matters.

    Giants vs. Royals

    I was hoping for an Orioles/Cardinals series to cap the 60th Anniversary St Louis to Baltmore move. I'll root for an I70 rematch for now and if that doesn't happen I'll just hope the Giants bring down the Royal Scunion on KC!
  4. I thought I read that DD said he was closer to 18. But I get the premise of what your saying. We don't sign sophomores but we certainly scout them. Response to Nadecir's post
  5. "Scouting a high school student is something that the MLB doesn't do to players of their own country," said Park, refusing to comment on Duquette's statement. Obviously the KBO is not familiar with the MLB scouting system in the states. maybe he should check our 40 man roster for a pitcher with the last name of Bundy,D

    Norichika Aoki (update: Brewers get Aoki)

    His swing reminds me of Wade Boggs. Looks like he makes a lot of line drive contact with the occasional homerun. I think he would fit nicely at the top of the line up without Roberts or the 9 hole with Roberts. Either way I think he would definitely improve our line up.
  7. The O's could potentially have 4 lefties in the starting rotation. How many teams have ever had that many?
  8. So, is this the Orioles way of leveling the playing field in a convoluted sort of way? We can't hit lefties very well so we go out and sign as many lefty SP types to throw at the opponents (no pun intended).

    Now where do we put Machado?

    Based off of Joe Jordan's comments on tonites pre-game I would say he is destined for Delmarva. Said the attraction to him grew last year watching him against international competition and wood bat showcase leagues. Impressive pick.

    BA's 2009 Mock Draft (v3.0)

    He talks like a young Jaime Walker with good stuff. He seems to fit the breed of Berken, Hernandez, and Bergesen as far as mental make-up.

    http://baseballanalysts.com/archives/2009/06/interview_with.php Zack Wheeler interview. Sounds very confident throwing any one of his pitches- doesn't mind throwing a 3-2 curveball.
  13. Why didn't they throw coco an outside pitch for the love of baseball!!! It was no surprise they were going to squeeze again-SHEESH

    Minor League Opinions

    Been to Bowie and Delmarva (live here). As was mentioned earlier you can go to the beach and catch a game in the same day at Delmarva. Fireworks are good, and if you sit in section 101/102 you can get a pretty good show from Delmarva's Favorite Fan as he razzes all the men in blue by name (I forgot his name-dude can throw some beer down too). Can be a pain in the A$$ to get out on fireworks night if you stay for the whole show. Take the dirt road!!! I took my family to see Bowie a few years ago to visit one of our former live-in S'birds. It was a good experience, higher level of competition, good fans, could basically sit anywhere (at that game) and the food was good. Its also very easy to get to 50-301, find Home Depot and follow the traffic.

    For what it's worth part 2....

    Just an idea, if we agreed to take on Pierre's contract, that might free them up to sign Kuroda and trade for Bedard w/ or w/o Tejada. Just my 2 cents.

    Didn't he and Payton get into a little scuttle-butt (on tv?). Always keep your eyes on the quiet guy!
