  1. The York Revolution of the Atlantic League signed JC.
  2. He's played almost the exact same amount of minor league innings at 2B (2001.2) as he has in the OF (2000), mostly in CF. And he started in LF tonight for the Tides https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=jones-000jah
  3. Via Fangraphs: Fastball Curveball Changeup Command Sits/Tops 40/45 50/55 40/50 40/50 86-90 / 92 Just a minor league Rule 5 pick, I’ve been a Feliz fan for a while and am staying on him because of his athleticism and the shapes of his pitches. He only sits 87-92 but he’ll flash a plus breaking ball and I believe th
  4. I just looked at the AT&T site, and I couldn't find MASN anywhere listed on their channel options. Is it only available in Maryland? I'm in Alexandria, VA so I wonder if the channel packages change for the regional networks based on state.
  5. Do you (or anyone else) know if the blackout exclusions are still applicable in the free Game of the Day? I want to watch baseball, I just don't want to pay $150 for cable to get one channel to watch one thing for 3 hours a day half the year.
  6. I don't really know anything about the amateur draft prospects anymore, so I usually go to the below link and click on the little black "Report" box to the right to get a quick blurb. I know FanGraphs is not end all/be all, but the quick synopsis help me get an idea of who the player is and what the could be capable of. Just in case it helps: https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/the-board/2021-mlb-draft/summary?sort=-1,1&type=0
  7. There are comments/reports on the FanGraphs prospects list, you just have to click the little black box on the far right under "report". There is video as well right beside that column. Also, they did write a short piece on the Bundy trade: https://blogs.fangraphs.com/baltimore-gets-quantity-for-bundy/.
  8. I just want to throw out my support to you, Tony, and whatever you decide is best. I don't have ad-blocker, but I haven't posted in many moons, yet I read and am always scrolling through. Thanks for everything you've created and I hope it continues, but completely understand that there are times when one needs to go in a different direction. This community has meant a lot to me, even as a non-posting entity of it, so I just wanted to say thanks for that and the community you were able to build.
  9. What a bizarre, yet interesting subject to come across as I come back to this site after a couple years in the wind. I actually came back to search for a post I made about my dad and listening to Orioles games on the radio with him many years ago but stumbled on this. I stopped posting (and looking) at the site about two years ago due to my alcoholism. Not that the OH contributed to that, but I couldn't afford to pay my plus membership anymore because I needed that money for booze. I was too embarrassed after cancelling my membership to even look at the site because I knew for what and why I o
  10. I'm interested in getting involved in another keeper league. I play Ottoneu right now and do a yearly non-keeper Yahoo league usually. Email me at dgrussel@vt.edu if you need another team.
  11. Wow, what a rough draft...http://www.baseball-reference.com/draft/index.cgi?team_ID=BAL&year_ID=2009&draft_type=junreg&query_type=franch_year
  12. Just for reference sake for those who were unaware, the author (Kiley McDaniel) worked in the Orioles scouting department at one point. Just FYI
  13. Main weak point in his hitting seems to be the lefties. He's only had 25 ABs this year against them, but had only 3 hits. Hopefully they give him a little more exposure to them as the season goes on so he can start adjusting. In fairness, he did go 8/24 against them last year, but it was the GCL.
  14. I know we're a power built team, but verse the Yankees I'd play the crap out of small ball and wear them out over a series. Constantly have them running around trying to field bunts, hit and runs, steals, etc. and see if we can exhaust their age, injuries and eroding skills.
