Steve has some minor league and college broadcast experience.

I have some college broadcasting experience too.   Once I was broadcasting a game between Duke and North Carolina.   UNC eventually built up an 18-3 lead and I said “well, four grand slams and we’re right back in this one!”

Broadcasting college baseball is hard because you don’t have all kinds of statistics, trivia and war stories you can use to fill the gaps in the game.

Joe Angel showed up on Roch Kubatko's and Jim Hunter's Hot Stove Show on 105.7 and made it official that he is retiring. With no mention of doing any games at all this year. He said he has been talking to the O's about retiring for several months, so apparently this was not a surprise to anyone.

Jim Hunter started to cry on the air - so I guess Joe angel is a helluva guy.

Joe did say that if he ever ends up in Cooperstown in the Broadcaster wing that he would have sure that his plaque had an Orioles hat.

Joe had been "hinting at retirement for four years."  Audio here.  FFWD to 13:45 mark

My take is that Joe said he wanted to retire and the O's said OK. Sort of like when that dinner guest says "I really should be going" and you say "let me find your coat" instead of "wait there is this scotch I have been meaning to open". No one seems to be pissed about it. I'm not pissed about it. We don't seem to have an organizational sentimentality for radio play by play guys.

I think Hunter could actually be good if he stopped being a member of the lollipop guild.

He has a good voice. But as you said...he's such a huge homer it's annoying as hell.

Wanted to mention this. I stumbled on this over the weekend and forgot to post. 

Angel said the Orioles offered him a variety of options in less demanding roles.

Also he was interviewed on High Heat today with Chris Russo.

    • Off topic, but just out of curiosity I googled Wei-Yin Chen's name, and discovered he was the highest-paid player of the 2020 MLB season at $22 million.  I don't know how that is possible, but then again not much made sense in 2020. As far as Santander, he seems like a JAG.  Maybe slightly above a JAG.  Certainly not a guy to build around, but a capable 5-7 hitter in a lineup of a somewhat contending team.  In other words, he isn't that special. I hope Yusniel Diaz gets a chance this year.  He was supposedly the cornerstone of the Machado trade, and I have yet to see him in any box score.  He isn't getting any younger, let the dude play.
    • Its a good get.  The back half isn't like LeMahieu with the please play him six more years thing, and leapfrogging them in 2/3/4/<never> years will be tougher. Vlad might need to try 3B again if they want to start Tellez and all three of last year's outfielders. He's 5 years almost to the day older than Correa, not that we have $150M lying around, but some chance in 2022 whoever Correa's team is may have a shot at the younger/cheaper/better thing.     Using B-Ref tonight Springer as wild guess for overall Correa comp has 28 WAR in 3600 PA to Correa's 26 WAR in 2600 PA, though Springer better and healthier lately. Maybe now Realmuto in his Bryce/Dombrowski group text is like - ha, your $100M offer, so puny.   He lacks Mets stalking horse though. Good job Jays buying more good players when you've grown enough good players.   I'm good with anybody beating the Yankees, or at least stressing Gerrit Cole's summer, one more year.
    • I watched him pitch..I’m just not completely overvaluing 14 innings.
    • I don't think you watched him pitch. He is not a strikeout pitcher. He threw 83% changeups. He was a beast for 14 innings against MLB hitters. I don't care about his age. As long as he is cheap he gets a shot. 
    • https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/10-prospects-who-just-missed-the-2021-top-100-prospects-list/   There is nothing linear about a Top 100 Prospects ranking. The difference between ranking 90th and 91st on the Baseball America Top 100 Prospects list is often infinitesimal, as the gap between No. 1 and No. 20 on the list is always larger than the gap between No. 75 and No. 125.
    • I think most teams only have about 5 or so true core players...4+ WAR guys and/or dominant BP arms (WAR doesn’t properly rate relievers). Legit AS level guys.
