  1. This was my initial thought as well. Could have had Lacy too.
  2. I'd draft a pitcher at 2. Can't win without pitching.
  3. Schmuck wrote his farewell column yesterday after more than 30 years with the Sun. It was a great article. https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/analysis/schmuck/bs-sp-schmuck-farewell-column-20200508-mhq2c4dxgfg7hoeeawuh6fmvou-story.html
  4. I attended that game in April of 1994 as a teenager with my Dad and brother. Our family had a Sunday plan in the early days of Camden Yards, and in those days crowds of 47,000 plus were the norm. Its very hard to imagine that will ever happen again. The ball that KGJr hit off Brad has to be one of the furthest ever hit at the ballpark and I'll never forget it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/sports/1994/04/25/orioles-yield-to-mariners-7-6/fbbb49a6-3612-41ae-b2fa-3f6e5873383c/
  5. It would be cool to have all four farm teams in Maryland, and I'd hate to lose Frederick. I've never made the trip down to Norfolk, 95 in VA is a parking lot 24/7/365.
  6. A definitive list of teams has not been released, we will see how it plays out.
  7. I think the Nats are losing two teams, including their SAL team in Hagerstown. Frederick is close to DC and Harry Grove would certainly be an upgrade over Municipal Stadium. As others have mentioned, Frederick draws well too. It just makes too much sense. This is all pure speculation on my part, I could be totally wrong.
  8. This is exactly right, Frederick would need a larger stadium to qualify for anything but A-ball. If Frederick and Hagerstown are contracted, the scenario with the least cost is to keep Delmarva in the SAL and up-level Aberdeen to the Carolina League. Unfortunately that leaves Frederick open for the Nats to join the SAL as the Frederick Suns.
  9. This is pure guess on my part but I would think that Aberdeen would join the high-A Carolina League, and Frederick would become the Nats low-A affiliate.
  10. 2012 was my PR year for most Orioles games attended in a single season. I went to at least 25 games that year, including every statue game, and two games at Fenway in September. It was a great season, especially after those 14 years we all endured.
  11. So did everyone else that post season if I remember it correctly...
  12. One of my favorite players of the Buck Era, and his career stats are nearly identical to C Davis. I'll never forget the game where his homerun reached the club level in LF. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/04/mark-reynolds-retires-dbacks-rockies-orioles.html

    Tomorrow night, "Ripken and Berman will celebrate the game with the ESPN launch of BBTN Live (Baseball Tonight Live), a weekly digital pregame show that will air classic baseball games called MLB Encore Tuesdays.

The game will re-air on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET." https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/columnist/bob-nightengale/2020/04/06/cal-ripken-jr-espn-2131-lou-gehrig/2953978001/
  14. I was that game as well. We walked up the day of the game and bought bleacher tickets. I'll never forget that T-Bat grand slam. Track, Wall, See You LATER!
  15. YouTube has a lot of games available for free on their MLB Vault Channel. They are also showing the Delmon game today at 4pm. https://www.youtube.com/user/MLBClassics/featured
