Man - Bowie's going to be stacked this year. I'm looking forward to hitting some games over there! Thanks Tony.

Nice Tony! This is great to look at. I'd love to ask particulare questions on players once I've reviewed it more thoroughly.

Real quick, it looks like you have Joel Hutter as SS at Aberdeen and as UTL at Frederick.

This is great Tony, I really appreciate you putting this together. Just another reason of many of why I love the OH!
Thanks. Yeah, I was just looking for someone to put into Aberdeen. At 23-years old, I think Hutter will get a utility job higher in the system. Aberdeen is tricky because the draft will fill a lot of spots.

Very nice work. Thanks.

I tell you what, that Norfolk team is going to be pretty darn good as well. You can really tell the depth DD has added to the organization at the upper levels.

Is there inside word that Mike Wright will make the Norfolk rotation? He was pretty mediocre in his half season at Bowie last year and got rocked in the Arizona Fall League. Natural progression would seem to be at least starting the year in Bowie.

Wright could very well go back to Bowie but with Redmond being claimed, I think he's the natural guy to fill out the rotation at Norfolk. The Orioles liked what they saw from Wright despite the mediocre at best numbers at Bowie last year so I see him getting the nod to Norfolk as long as his spring goes ok in minor league camp.

Dickerson is wasted at DH. He is probably the best outfielder of any of the AAA guys.

He'll be in that outfield rotation. I had to stick someone in there, but they'll almost certainly rotate those guys in the outfield and in the DH spot.

Tony, this is a really great snapshot of where the organization is right now, thanks! Any more info on Mychal Givens? I was somewhat excited about him when we drafted him - as I recall, a raw but very promising physical specimen - and a SS? But suddenly, he's vying for a relief pitching role in the low minors after raking in the Australian Baseball League last year? What a strange short career so far. Any updates on Mychal?

Tony, what does Mike Wright's color coding mean?

Right now he's trying to convert himself into a power reliever after his bat and fielding ability failed to live up to initial expectations. I heard he git some decent movement on his pitches and he got the win today with a couple of shutout frames so he's off to a good start.

It means that I forgot to make him brown when I changed the color from orange to brown. ;)

Any particular reason why Tyler Wilson and Brandon Waring were placed on Aberdeen's roster? I certainly understand roster crunches, but I wouldn't have expected either of them to be the first to go. Unless they were unhealthy or not in shape to start the season with a team.

    • This kid can just pitch. If he can find a way to get his velocity into the 89-91 range he has the chance to be a beast. not saying he can't have some success at his 87-90, but he'll need pinpoint control when he gets to more mature hitters. Saying that, when I saw him last year, I don't think i ever seen a guy who never throws the ball the same speed two times in a row. He has a chance to be a very fast mover.  I'm looking forward to seeing him pitch this year to compare him from last year.
    • Also, I have to say that I hate ESPN's website.    The older version was better, both in form and content.    And if I want articles from fivethirtyeight.com, I'll go there and read them.    I don't need them mixed in with my sports news.    
    • Yea, he rambled on a bit.  I stopped reading shortly after that section.
    • Yes, because the first month or two is always, always overemphasized.  Decisions are made based on tiny samples of almost meaningless data and emotional knee-jerks.  You're better off if your nonsensical knee jerks are positive rather than negative.  You're almost always better off riding your offseason plan longer rather than making any choice based on 50 PAs.
    • In the AFL in 2015 the cutter/slider was causing him some discomfort. To the best of my knowledge he wasn't throwing it in games or even bullpen sessions last season.
    • Do some athletes find themselves unhappy with an organization and then just put forth mediocre effort (or tank) with hopes of being released and thus given a "change of scenery"? I have no idea if this is the case or if this is even a thing (I feel like Jake's situation was different - was pitching coach and philosphical differences)? I'm just wondering if he's wanting to go to a place where he's actually wanted and there's a clear line of advancement to the Majors). Just pure wild speculation, not based on anything other than he's a complex guy.
