Thanks for posting. I know Kevin Gregg gets a ton of heat on here, but this was nice to read:

It didn't take the Orioles long to see the kid was serious. On the first day of spring training, veteran reliever Kevin Gregg sat Bundy down and told him, "I get to the park at 6:45 a.m. every day -- and you will beat me here every day.'' Gregg never had to convey the message again.

Fantastic article and an amazing young man. Bundy could end up Jordan's legacy with the Orioles. Between Wieters, Machado, and Bundy, Jordan's number ones are looking pretty darn good. Also of note was Kevin Gregg talking to the young Bundy early in spring training about beating him into camp every day. That was impressive.

Is Bundy a contender for #1 prospect in the bigs for all of the mid-season lists now that Harper and Trout have seemingly graduated? Everything about this kid appears to be first-rate...watching his career unfold should be a real treat so long as he avoids injury.

Is his main competition Taijuan Walker?

One of the most interesting parts of this article is that apparently Bundy decided the 3 inning, 4 inning, 5 inning build up approach? It says he had 2 options and he decided to go with the buildup approach we have him on now. Interesting.

In a Baseball America Chat, Jim Callis was asked, "who is your early favorite for #1 prospect at the end of the season?" Answer, "Dylan Bundy."

When asked, "What should the Orioles do with Dylan Bundy?" Answer, "Clone him."

Man, I cannot wait to see what we have on our hands once he reaches the bigs. Could be our Pedro Martinez. He wasn't a big guy, either, but he was the best pitcher baseball has ever seen for about 2.5 seasons straight. Not too shabby before and after that stretch, either.

Pedro was great, but pretty different than Dylan.

I believe Dylan is pretty much the exact same size as Tom Seaver. I'd take Tom Terrific.

I'm going home next week. I sure hope he doesn't make it to Frederick before I get to see him in person. If so I might have to drive up to Frederick! It pumps me up that we have this guy.

I'm graduating here in a few days and headed back to Hagerstown, where he's scheduled to pitch 5 innings May 18 if the rotation doesn't change...I'm bringing a couple changes of underwear for that one.

If this is already on here... my bad. It's a great read

Bundy, 19, is building a r?sum? that ensures his time in Wicomico County will be fleeting. Through his first four appearances, South Atlantic League hitters were 0-for-39 against him. Asheville Tourists outfielder Delta Cleary Jr. broke the string with a single Monday night, but the overall numbers are still mind-boggling: Opposing lineups are batting .020 (1-for-50) against Bundy this season, with 25 strikeouts and two walks in 17 innings.
