It might be interesting to talk to some locals there (except for Joe the Barista) and find out what the locals think of the Orioles moving ST there.

It would be nice to get some quotes too from some of the Orioles "B" arms, like Berken, Britton, Bundy, Beato, Bascom and Butler to see how they are doing.

I would like you to get a look at Rowell, Snyder and Erbe. I think all of these guys are at an important point in their careers. Rowell needs to hit a ton to be a corner outfielder in the majors. Snyder has to pick up a little more power and prove he can play defence. Erbe needs to bring the homeruns down some and get a little sharper.

I am very eager for them to show improvement.

How is Hoes looking defensively? What's the buzz on some of our second line of pitchers beyond the Big 3 and Bergesen, such as Erbe, Britton, Hernandez, Bundy and Drake?

I, too, am interested in Miclat.

Yes; Hoes, Bundy and Drake for me as well.

If there is anything in particular you are wondering about ask in this thread and I'll see what I can dig up over the next three days in Sarasota.

Which pitchers are likely to be on staff in Bowie?

Which 4 or 5 are likely to be the startering pitchers in Bowie?

Tony- How about your take on the field condition situation? Doc says there's nothing wrong, Melewski says teams don't want to play on it.

Nothing is really "wrong." Perhaps a little dip between 2nd and 3rd in the infield on Field 1. However, the other teams are playing on near major-league diamonds and the drought at Sarasota has been rough on the grass. However, it is still better than many SALLY league diamonds.

A couple of the players did tell me that the other teams don't want to come to Twin Lakes. When I saw the minor leagiue Quadraplex at Port Charolotte, it looked almost major league quality for ALL fields. At first they reminded me of Bowie's field, but as the games wore on, they looked even better in the way they played. The "facilities" are much more modern as well.
