If Mayo was a first round pick he'd be easy on top 100 lists. Remember, these guy don't watch all these guys, they can't. They look at drafted status, bonus, and then stats. Take all these top 100 lists with a huge grain of salt.
Sparks finished the Aberdeen portion of his season at .240/.336/.404 in 119 PA, after slashing .256/.344/.388 at Delmarva in 183 PA. Not spectacular, but enough to keep him in the organization next year I suspect. Will be interesting to see if they keep him at Aberdeen or push him to Bowie.
I question your 2nd paragraph. If Georgia becomes owner with John as Orioles Executive he has already been officially name to running the team. He has been involved with the team through he 2012-2016 period where they won more games than any team in the League. That is a measure of success. John has also managed MASN.
As far as the MASN lawsuit with MLB. This sounds like a good reason to settle the issue without the Angelos Suing MLB yet again for not allowing them to continue as owners.
Why are you and Frobby poo pooing Mountcastle's accomplishment? Did I miss where anyone claimed Mountcastle was better than Ripken or that his accomplishment was better than when Ripken made the record?
He broke it, congrats to him. How this turned into people poo pooing the young man's accomplishment is beyond me.
