Earlier this year I was approached about my interest in penning the MiLB Game Summaries; I agreed, worked all season long and now the season is over.  There will be Playoff Summaries to follow, no worries.  I want to thank @Tony-OHand @weams for allowing me to contribute to this site and I want to especially thank the readers for checking in and reading the effort.  Hopefully I haven't disappointed.  If I am wanted, I will continue to add my input to Orioles Hangout.  The future is bright for the Orioles and I would like to share it.  Thanks again to everyone for allowing me to be here.

To the contrary, thank you for everything you’ve done this summer.    It’s enhanced the minor league board tremendously.

Great job and thank you!  Right now where the Orioles are as a franchise, your summaries have much more of my attention than the major league games.

Very much appreciate your efforts here.  The minor leagues were 95% of what was worth watching with the Orioles this year.

It is a testament to how the regular season has gone for the parent club, that the first thing I look for in the morning is your summary.  What a wonderful effort you have made, and from where I sit, most appreciated.

You done good.

It was the one place where I didn't read, he doesn't walk enough, his fastball wasn't fast enough, he has no position, etc, etc, etc. Just a report where when players did well they got some recognition. Thanks.

    • Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
    • I'm don't think I'm making any large leaps assuming that Aberdeen is hands-off because of Cal Ripken.
    • Why should Delmarva get sacrificed?  After all, they were the Minor League Team of the Year and has a modern stadium in Salisbury.  Screw convenience... it's nice to have professional baseball come through the Eastern Shore since 1996 and I don't see why that should be tampered with.  An increase in affiliation could lead to the team putting more seats down the left and right side of the diamond to encourage more revenue to accommodate their increased affiliation.
    • At this point, this is throwing good money after bad.  Any appeal is almost certain to be doomed.  What error has the court committed to warrant review?  Angelos just lived through one of his biggest fears.  The Nats winning a World Series.
    • On the heels of a game where Sam Koch didn't punt once. Hoping this formats correctly:   Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G   Rk Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G 1 HOU 1990 16 34 2.13   1 BAL 2019 10 21 2.10 2 SDG 1982 9 23 2.56               3 SFO 1993 16 42 2.63               4 NOR 2018 16 43 2.69               5 STL 2001 16 43 2.69               6 LAR 2018 16 43 2.69               7 STL 2000 16 44 2.75               8 KAN 2018 16 45 2.81               9 NWE 2007 16 45 2.81               10 DEN 2008 16 46 2.88               11 NOR 2011 16 47 2.94   2 DAL 2019 10 29 2.90 12 SDG 2011 16 47 2.94   3 LAC 2019 10 29 2.90 13 DET 1971 14 42 3.00   4 ATL 2019 10 30 3.00 14 ATL 2016 16 48 3.00               15 IND 2006 16 48 3.00               16 SFO 1992 16 49 3.06               17 WAS 2016 16 49 3.06               18 DET 1972 14 43 3.07               19 NWE 2008 16 50 3.13   5 KAN 2019 10 31 3.10 20 MIA 1972 14 44 3.14              
    • If anyone predicted this is how Lamar would be at this point, I have my doubts about their veracity.  That being said, I remember the player RG3 was before he broke his knee, and he has never been the player since.  IF Lamar can stay healthy, his future looks very bright. Right before the season started, a caller into 105.7 asked about McSorely and his words were "IF God forbid something happened to Lamar. Rob Long got all indignant and unnecessarily confrontational. "Lemme ask you something why are you asking that question?  Why are YOU askin' that question?"
    • I don't think the premise is very different. JJ was traded for whatever we could get  because we didn't want to pay him his arb number, which would be the same thing happening to Villar. You can make a very reasonable case that Villar is a regression candidate for 2020. Like @weams mentioned.. nobody bit at the trade deadline last year when he was cheaper and having a career year, which I think is telling. Milwaukee practically handed him to us. It seems that we value him on this board much more than other league execs do. But like I've said three times now, I'm not trying to bash Villar or shoo him out of town. I'd be just fine if they decided to keep him and pay his arb salary. I'm just pointing out that it's not some egregious baseball sin to non-tender him. It's a reasonable alternative.
