  1. Extremely generous offer. This is the go to Oriole sight. My support will always behind you guys
  2. I played up to when I was 16. Couldn’t hit a lick but caught everything hit closes to me. Turned into a pitcher and could throw the ball up into the eighties at 16. The coach I had was more interested in getting to the bar after the game so everything I learned was on my own. My junior year in high school my buddies talked me into playing lacrosse where i dislocated my right shoulder and could never throw a ball over 50 mph after that.
  3. Keith Law has an article on this in the Athletic today. He talked of having a combine, like the NFL in May but that wouldn’t allow for game action which is really needed. Maybe some tournaments prior to the draft. He also brought up shortening the draft to 20 rounds.
  4. This isn’t my story but a friend of mine, he was in St.Louis for business during the World Series. He over slept, packed hurriedly and getting off the elevator when his bag sprung open and all his stuff fell out. As he scrambled to pick he stuff up someone bend over to give him a hand. That person was Jim Palmer who was there to do the color commentary on the the broadcast.
  5. Tanner Scott pitching
  6. he Hasn’t been as solid on defense so far this year.
  7. My main dislike of Severino is he is swats at pitches outside the strike zone and never positions himself to block pitches. His 10 passed balls were tied for 4th worst in baseball. He has a strong arm but only caught 13 of 55 attempts granted a bunch of them were off the pitchers.
  8. I have been sitting behind home plate so far at all the home games. Holiday is impressive, he explodes out of the box on grounders to the infield, frames pitches well and has a good arm. He has great reaction time blocking pitches. All things we are not familiar with with Serevino and Sisco. He can also can hit a little. Severino drives me nuts behind the plate.
  9. Also Dilson Herrera has looked good around the bag at first. Has made some good picks in the dirt and is hitting the ball with authority
  10. The guys that have impressed me the most down here are Velazquez, Valiaka , Urena and Ritchie Martin. Martins bat looks quicker than last year.
  11. I agreed about Carroll. He has been one of the more pleasant surprises of Camp
