  2. Encouraging start. Love seeing that strikeout rate where it is
  3. Yes that is the plan. I’ll be at most of his home starts so I’ll be taking some video of other players on the team and doing some write ups
  4. I would agree. I’m biased of course but he’s been the best starter in Bowie so far in my opinion. And the stats back it up.
  5. Yes he is. He’s been 91-94, occasionally bumping 95 in all three starts I’ve watched at Bowie
  6. Video of one of his strikeouts from his outing on May 10. Definitely the best I’ve ever seen him, minus the final inning where the ump squeezed him on several pitches which led to him walking the bases loaded. Our contingent behind home plate had been heckling the ump so we might be partially to blame for that lol. Finished with 11 K’s and just 2 hits allowed over 5.2 innings. https://youtu.be/VXyUp4qwFIE
  7. Here’s a report (at the end of this post) on his pitches directly from the man himself. Quick note: I’ve been at a three home starts and can verify he’s hit 95 several times in each start. Not sure about 96 though. He made a point of emphasis (much like John Means) to increase his velo this offseason and did so successfully. He worked with the same trainer that worked with Corey Kluber several years back before his breakout for what it’s worth. I remember him only being 89-92 on that same Bowie stadium gun last August. He’s been comfortably 91-94 in each start I’ve watched this year
  8. Hey Hangouters. It’s been a while since I posted on here. But, I figured it’s time to return and start a thread about my cousin Bruce Zimmermann since I’ve been going to most of his starts now. Here’s a bio of who Bruce is and how he got to where he is now. Bruce grew up here in Maryland in the Woodstock area. He attended Cardinal Gibbons for one year before that school got the axe and then transferred to Loyola where I got to play on the same team as him my senior year in 2012. Bruce flew under the radar with college coaches and scouts alike throughout high school,
  9. I consider this a hot take because I'm making a bold assumption that Stewart will continue to hit like he did post-all star break in 2017 and like he has so far in 5 games here in 2018 with the Tides. But based on the adjustments I saw him make when I watched him several times last August, I think the offensive breakthrough is for real. He brings a patient and disciplined approach that the big league club is sorely lacking. Even if he were to come up and hit .240, chances are he'd still be among the leaders in OBP on the team because he's a walk machine. Not to mention for a big
  10. Yea, my theory is they just need an extra arm after bullpen got taxed over the weekend and he was the next man up on the 40 man roster. Could also be viewed as an audition to see how close he is to being ready.
  11. Orioles adding to their outfield depth today with the signing of former Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders. Yes, it was just two years ago that he made the all-star team. https://www.google.com/amp/www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-saunders-20180402-story,amp.html
  12. Can't ask for a better start than this. http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2017/08/07/orioles-tim-beckham-named-american-league-player-of-the-week/
  13. I would be interested in attending and should be available on the 23rd.
  14. Manny Machado in particular is finally heating up with a .360 batting average over the last 30 days. Some consistent starting pitching would go a long way down the stretch here if the offense keeps doing its part. http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/bs-sp-second-half-offense-20170804-story.html
