I’m just looking at it as having a 12.5% chance to win the World Series. I like our guys and like how we’re playing (slight concern with the offense), but anything can happen in a short series. I’m gonna enjoy the playoffs because we’re there but anything beyond this amazing regular season is a bonus.
I hear you …. But, the real savior was/is removing Peter from the equation. I honestly believe Gillick, Wren, A McPhail, and some other would’ve redone the scouting and development departments. I believe they were smart enough to see it as a problem. By the time they were here the number of real prospects that turned into anything more than a fringe MLB player was very few. And anybody could’ve drafted Wieters (who fell short of expectations), Markais, Adley, Mussina, McDonald, Machado, Olson. But, really they got little else from Cal to a few years ago through the system and to the majors. Especially after the first round which is why I say any of us could’ve drafted them. John Angelos is far from perfect but he obviously learned from the thinking he knew better than the baseball people. Remember under Angelos we had little International presence and our scouting team was a undermanned bone yard.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who read the 2023 summaries. While this is the end of the MiLB season and the summaries, it is not the end of Orioles MiLB news.
Look for updates/summaries on the Orioles prospects playing in the Arizona Fall League starting tomorrow.
Thanks again for all your support!
