    It was nothing that we dont already know but Jason Grey from ESPN complimented Britton and gave some observations of him in a recent article recapping the futures game. It was Insider so I dont think its linkable, not that I know how to link stuff anyway. The main focus was D. Brown of the Phillies but then he wrote small entries about 4 more players and Britton was one of them. Good to see another one of our prospects getting national attention

      Do you have the link? You should be able to just paste it here and it will automatically make it a clickable URL. Britton gained a lot of attention & supporters because of his outing. Surprised people weren’t on his bandwagon before.

          Guess I coulda just done this too. To give the proper credit, this is from a blog by Jason Grey of ESPN

          It’s not just the heavy sink that the Baltimore Orioles’ Zach Britton gets on the ball that makes him effective, it’s that he’s also able to bring mid-90s velocity. Keeping the ball down in the strike zone and in the park is a trait that should serve him well in a tough American League East, and he’s another player who needs to rank higher on keeper lists than he does now. If the O’s are going to make noise in their division in the next few years, it will be on the strength of their starting rotation, and all of them (Brian Matusz, Jake Arrieta, Chris Tillman, Britton) are likely to be underrated in the next couple of years.

            Good stuff, thanks for the link! He’s definitely underrated by most, like Grey said.
