Went to last night’s (Friday) game versus Carolina. Some thoughts:

– Agreed with Dirtybird regarding Hays. He will play in the majors. With he and Mullins both moving quickly as quality CF’s, it makes for an interesting conversation surrounding the end of Adam’s contract.

– Mountcastle impressed. Can definitely hit line drives. Big kid. He actually looked good at Shortstop on this night.

– Reyes is big. Hits with authority. His throws from third were adventourous. Just one game, I know.

– Wilkerson seems like a forgotten guy in our system, but he’s a nice player. Not sure he will make it to the show, but a slow and steady progression may eventually get him an opportunity somewhere. Never thought that red-headed third baseman (sorry, forgot his name) for the Dodgers would make it either. He’s a very wealthy man now.

– Was really hoping to be impressed by Brian Gonzalez, but he got hit hard. Even many of his outs were pretty loud. On the bright side, the big lefty was sitting around 92-93 and throwing strikes. Unfortunately, they must have been lollipops.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
