  1. He'll be at Aberdeen. We are a host family with them and were just informed he'll be staying with us, beginning tomorrow (Saturday).

    I can confirm that 6th round pick, Mason McCoy, has signed. We are a host family for the Ironbirds and we've just been informed he's staying with us. He will arrive tomorrow.

    The scout can say all he wants, doesn't mean he's right. It's just an opinion. My opinion on the subject is that he's someone to get excited about. Results matter and he's been great. This year is not a fluke, he's pitched well for several years for us, it's just that he's taken it up a notch this year. I can tell you this much, he'll be quite high on my end-of-the year O's prospect list. He's a starter with a 1.100 WHIP (did that last year too at Aberdeen) who strikes out more than a guy every inning. Beautiful 5.6 K:BB rate too. All this while he;s almost a full year younger than the league average age. Hop on board, it's not too late!!

    what a season he is having! He just does not get the publicity of some others in the system but all he does is produce. He's simply dominating at Delmarva. Can't wait for him to move up.

    Bennett Parry Released?

    Apparently, it's true. Sad to see. He pitched very well each year. They must not have been high on him. Hard to believe you can't find room to keep him.
  8. <p><p><p>Thought I'd drop you a line since I believe you collect older Orioles items (hence your sign on name). While I don't really collect minor league O's items, I do collect interesting Oriole and Brooks Robinson items. I'd love to pick up some minor league stuff if and when I can afford. Would love to hear about your collection if you have time to share. </p></p></p>

    O's LH pitching prospects

    Just a quick note on Daniel Ayers, he's clearly quite talented and the O's seem to be high on him as well (the promoted him to Aberdeen after his age 19 season). That being said, he's still young and has much to prove. For example, his WHIP is the highest of any of the 18 active pitchers on the Ironbirds. Let's not go overboard on him yet. I will root for him though!

    O's LH pitching prospects

    This is a great thread and it shows we have a large hole in LHP, especially starters. I do like some of the minor leaguers mentioned, but most are a ways off.

    Brian Gonzalez is falling apart

    He's a teenager pitching on a full season squad. Le'ts give him some time to adjust. That being said, expectations need to be realistic. Although he was our first pick, it was in the 3rd round and 90th overall. Historically, that gives him about a 1 in 3 chance of making it to the majors some day.

    Let's Talk About M Bowden (Opts Out - Free Agent)

    He's been amazing this season, unfortunately it doesn't look like we will add him next week so..He Gone! That's a shame.

    Glad to see him getting some attention. I'll take a 0.619 WHIP any day. Keep it up!
