    The Shorebirds added Morgan McSweeney, Kade Strowd, Andrew Fregia, and a rehabbing Jaylen Ferguson from Aberdeen for their playoff roster. McSweeney can run his fastball into the mid-90s and has a high spin breaking ball. He pitched 23.2 innings for the Ironbirds with a 1.90 ERA, 11.4 K/9, 4.6 BB/9 Strowd was mostly a low 90s guy, but t96 in his most recent outing, has a quick, deceptive arm action, and a 4 pitch mix. He pitched 17 innings for the Ironbirds with a 0 ERA, 10.1 K/9, 3.7 BB/9 and a very strong batted ball profile, only allowing 11.9% Outfield FBs. Fregia is a super-utility type who has played every position but C and P this year. He's a big swing and miss guy with fringe power, so the glove and positional flexibility are the strengths. Just an org guy. Ferguson would be an interesting prospect if he had the arm for CF as he's a speedy dude with some power that can hit a fastball. But he has trouble with spin and is limited to a corner.

    Shepherd is now called up and I would think over the next 20 days we will find out what the O's did to help him have such a good month of August. That should be interesting and may tell us something about the O's player development.

    Earlier this year I was approached about my interest in penning the MiLB Game Summaries; I agreed, worked all season long and now the season is over. There will be Playoff Summaries to follow, no worries. I want to thank @Tony-OHand @weams for allowing me to contribute to this site and I want to especially thank the readers for checking in and reading the effort. Hopefully I haven't disappointed. If I am wanted, I will continue to add my input to Orioles Hangout. The future is bright for the Orioles and I would like to share it. Thanks again to everyone for allowing me to be here.

    o John Alan Means appears to have gradually bounced back since the outing just prior to his minor injury last month. He had a bad outing in his final game prior to the injury against the Diamondbacks, and another bad one in his first game back against the Yankees after coming off of the IL. In the outing after that (also against the Yankees), he showed sings of dominance in the first 3 innings before the New Yorkers smacked him around in the 4th. Then he pitched reasonably well (not great, not bad) against the Royals. Then he had what was arguably his best outing of the season against the Rays, throwing 7 Innings of 1-Run Ball. Then he followed that up with another solid outing in his most recent game, throwing 7 Innings of 2-Run Ball against the Royals. In his last 3 outings combined, he has a 2.37 ERA and an 0.842 WHIP with 2 Walks and 15 Strikeouts over 19 Innings Pitched.

    Wow. The FSL is a pitcher's league, and the kid is adjusting to pro ball. But eight extra base hits and 19 walks in more than half a season isn't good. And he's age-appropriate for A+.

    Starting to think he's for real. Obviously, he needs to repeat his performance next year. Can't be a one year wonder. He's bounced back. I think we were all a bit worried that the other shoe was dropping for him after the all-star break where he wasn't that sharp. He's improved over the last three starts. Not sure what that's attributed to, either he's fixed any mechanical flaws or he's made adjustments to the hitters. Or both. It's good to see.

    Quietly a very impressive year from Diaz, IMO. Needs to get healthy. He's not quite as ready, but I'd take him over Mountcastle if the org was forced to pick one of them. Over Hays too.

    I’m remember the new Field of Dreams stadium being discussed on Sunday Night Baseball, and if memory serves there will be at least one MLB game played there per season. Similar to the game played in Williamsport, PA for the Little League Classic.

    I don't know why they should not move the Yankees there. To Tampa, where the lifelong Yankee fans live. The Rays to Bristol Connecticut, The As to San Jose and then the Nationals to Kentucky. Anywhere in Kentucky. An underserved Market. Four new teams added, Raleigh, Portland, Vegas and Montreal.

    Talent wise that's certainly debatable, but in terms of results and output of talent, making the playoffs and getting as far as they did saved the '96 team from being the biggest underachiever in team history. There's no reason a team with the talent they had should've needed till the last day of the season to wrap up the wild card, but they got themselves in a deep rut to dig out of. I say all that and the nostalgia of the team still resonates, but it's very much overshadowed by the '97, '12, and '14 teams.

    Not every momentary improvement is the result of something the team did to help the player. Sometimes it’s something the player did to help himself. Sometimes it’s just a blip of effectiveness and the player reverts after a few weeks. In any event, I look forward to seeing if Shepherd’s recent run carries over while he’s on the O’s.

    It's going to take some kind of crazy multi-billion dollar Elon Musk hyperloop to make it convenient to get from Nats Park to OPACY in a reasonable amount of time in normal weekday traffic. And by your definition San Francisco and Oakland are one market, as are Anaheim and LA. Certainly the Bronx and Flushing Meadows. Not sure baseball really needs to kick out all the teams splitting huge markets. The Yanks don't need the help. Also, it'll be sad to see the Ravens go.

    There is no question that Baltimore, DC, and Annapolis are the same market area. Not necessarily for driving around. But for advertising and shared boosterism. Better mass transit could correct the issues. The TV market is definitely shared. Now maybe not Harrisburg or Norfolk. I could see that debate.

    Peterson has spent significant time in AAA in four different seasons. He was 4th, 8th, 19th, and 5th on his AAA teams in OPS. I think he's a solid AAA player. I see a AAAA label being saved for the odd case where someone crushes AAA but flames out every time he's promoted to the majors. Peterson hits in the majors like you'd expect from his minor league resume.

    If I could lock the O's in as picking 2nd, I would. We're highly unlikely to catch the Tigers, unless we're still close enough that losing 3 or 4 of the remaining four games with them in mid-September could matter. It's no sure thing we'll pick 2nd either... with both Miami and KC close enough to potentially catch us, but odds are we're looking at the #2 pick. Again, I'll happily take that.

    With as deep of a class this is, I am excited to see what is available for the competative balance and second round picks. There could be some good signings to be had there. I feel especially encouraged since they got Gunnar this year and signed.

    I see no reason to make a change at this point. Hope he gets better but it isn't like we need to go out and make a trade for a long term solution at catcher. Give him another year, he and Severino will both be making the minimum again next year and then decide after next season if either is a suitable backup to Rutschman.
