I think Kjerstad's slightly unusual circumstances probably put a warmup Delmarva class in the field of "baseball" in play, but I'll be bummed if he's stuck there long, and won't feel like Aberdeen (mindfully working on those re-affiliations) is the deep end if he gets there to start.
I think if you are an SEC Silver Slugger/Team USA cleanup kind of stud, your average Friday night can hang with the South Atlantic League.
I do feel like the Sally is the deep end if you can make a full season team right out of high school like Bundy (and Drew Rom!), and we'll never know if Gunnar could have gotten there last summer, but that's their college freshman year equivalent. By the time you've been a junior year Golden Spikes candidate, I'm not sure there's much to prove there.
It’s really fascinating in all of this discussion that not one single person has complained that we didn’t take Lacy. I’m not unhappy with the selection we made at this time. I understand the process and I understand the logic, and I also understand that these guys know more than we do.
This would raise more questions about the finances of the Angelos's. Is there situation that bad that they need to make a minimum profit for the O's every year. This makes me hope for a sale sooner rather than later.
