Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

Happy for Adam, but he's started out like gang busters before and eventually regressed to his typical production levels.  Granted, his typical production levels would be good for him coming off the year he had, but lets not get carried away after just a couple of games.  What you're seeing right now is nothing you haven't seen from him before to start the season.

I'm glad to see Jones is playing well.  I hope has a great year in AZ and goes on a deep playoff run there.   Not sure why we need to minimize anything he did here historically or root for him to have a down year or something.

A great year this year in AZ still wouldn't change the fact that it was time to move on.

So... Any update on Buck and Dan?

Buck is in Texas. Dan might be back in Massachusetts. I know he had settled in in Baltimore though. And he still has that preschooler.

Dan;s Sports Academy might be in trouble. The number to the place is still not in service. Someone I know who lives up there says the place is for sale.

Dan  is the only one listed on the website now.  Looks like Schmidt is gone .

Two local telephone numbers listed for the camp were not in service this week. The camp office was dark and no one came to the door when a reporter visited Thursday. An email sent to James Schmidt, the general manager listed on the camp's website, brought no response.

Sears said that when he spoke with Duquette, he was told that the camp was recruiting a new general manager. 

In the town's December letter, Sears stressed that a new leader must be acquainted with rules that apply to summer camp programs in Massachusetts. 

Sears told Duquette that the Board of Health wants the program to improve its record in terms of compliance.

 

 

Dan Duquette - President

James Schmidt - General Manager - GM@duquettesports.com

Tylor Harrington - Head of Fields and Facility - tharrington@duquettesports.com

Joey Buonemani - Tournament Director - jbuonemani@duquettesports.com

It's weird to me that Ariel Miranda completely flamed out of professional baseball. One day he's starting for the Mariners and then he gets released mid-year and never signs with anyone, independent, international, or otherwise.

He's been playing in Japan. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=mirand000ari

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
