Here and there. I saw him prolly like 10 times at Bowie. And his stint in the majors. I like his swing. But yes, minor league stats do have alot to do with my out of nowhere prediction.

I am DEFINITELY NOT an Andino fan, but I would rate his defense as above average. IMO Flaherty is not as good but I see him as having the ability to become Andino's equal if he's willing to really work at it. I also see Flaherty's bay as having a much bigger upside.

Flaherty has a sweet stroke too. I'am defintily a RF fan. I wanted him to stay on the roster when many people wanted him off. Not sure what his role will be next year...

I think the Orioles' assessment of Ryan Adams has been made apparent by the fact that he's no longer on the 40 Man Roster.

Sadly yes. Have a gut feeling he's gonna tear up the international league this year though.

He should certainly be motivated to do that; however, If I were him I would spend TWICE as much time with his fielding instructor as the batting cage.
