  1. In other words, it was elementary? LOL. Still a decent year, 20-20 in the minors is a nice feat.
  2. I nominate this for post of the year.
  3. I get the full on impression that most think that our pitching prospects are going to come up and be good right away. That happens a lot less times than you all think. They arrive with expectations and then fail because, well, they are now facing real live big league lineups. Typically it takes a year or two after arrival in the majors for them to put it together. There are always outliers to this, but i do believe it is the norm to struggle for a year or two. Same for hitters. Typically start off hot, then need time to figure out how to adjust to the opposing pitchers having adjusted to
  4. I'm sorry but the memory of the ball bouncing off a sliding for the catch Stewart is stuck in my head as first impression of him. Same as the memory of Jim Traber sliding headfirst into second but instead of sliding he bounced on his belly and stopped 6 feet short of the bag. Some things just stick in my mind.
  5. Maybe he will BEDAZZLE us! Had to. I just did.
  6. Hey now, Stewart makes the highlight reels for heading the baseball and otherwise looking like he never played in the OF before that game. I laugh at those highlights.
  7. I gave it an F. For what seems like obvious reasons but my biggest concern is the overabundance of apparently mediocre/low upside outfielders early and often. I think Cowser was a fine pick. Norby was a good pick. The glut of OF that are going to cause what last year's run on MI is causing now in the minors has the appearance of "maybe one of these guys will develop into a good utility guy". Let's throw this SS prospect into CF so he can get enough ab's to evaluate. Gee Wally, this stuff makes very little sense to me. And pitching. I'm not an expert. But drafting college seniors a
  8. We need at least 4 or 5 more OF to make this a GREAT draft!
  9. And now pitching for the Orioles, Outfielder X X .
  10. If Alan Wiggins could stick at 2B, this guy should be able to. Would've been better if he ran the ball to first than threw it.
  11. I did a renovation project on Wake Forest's baseball stadium while he was still in college (Gavin). I have to say that he looks less like a linebacker than his dad did.
  12. Sadly, Matt Riley had a million dollar arm but a 10 cent head. I interviewed him for the CL Beat, a small rag that was around for only a couple of years. After my interview I could only shake my head. He was spending money he didn't have yet and thinking he was a BIG STAR as he was blowing away Single A hitters. He was basically a 2 pitch thrower with the high heat fastball and knee buckling curve. As he moved up and couldn't find the strike zone that curve was useless as you could sit on red and feast. He had one of the nicest catchers that i ever met there in Frederick in Cesar Devares
