I am upset on so many levels.I don't see the silver lining many here do.Why am I going to put my faith in the farm system when there seems to be a big problem in scouting and player development.Sure,
Wieters and Matusz were good picks, but both were college guys.There is a big problem when our pitchers are brought up, they either can't throw strikes or they come up with arm problems.Positon prospects?
After Wieters, who is there? It's been 11 years of crud.Truthfully, the only bright spots were the Bedard trade and the development of Roberts and Markakis. 11 years!!!
I am a lifelong Oriole fan. I am 49 years old. I remember the glory years. It is quite disheartening to see this once model franchise in the state it's in.Withot sounding like captain obvious, the good players don't want to be here.Not even the local ones.I wish so much I could walk away from this, but it is a part of me.Sorry for ranting.
