Cheating or Trying?

Keep it clean!

Keep it clean!

GLEN SAINT MARY, FL – I’ve watched a great deal of baseball my entire life.  I love listening to it on the radio.  Living in Florida and being too cheap to buy the MLB premium package, I only get the “free game of the day” and the radio feeds.  But one thing that has always bothered me is hearing or seeing a player bend the rules to the breaking point.

Shorebirds’ Quiet Infielder Needs Offensive Spotlight – Jared Breen

Last July I bumped into Jared Breen, Anthony Vega (now with Long Island Ducks, unaffiliated) and Anthony Caronia (Norfolk, AAA) at the Salisbury Cookout after a game. Breen was the teapot of the trio but who cares about proportions? CC Sabathia, The Babe, David Ortiz, Renyel Pinto – they all get/got the job done. This kid (though he’s 360 days older than I am) is good.

Jared Breen 2015 MiLBBreen, 5’11” (I worked in men’s college basketball for four years; all players lie about height), stocky, 24 year old Belmont product does not get the recognition that he deserves. Last year he was competing against fellow field position players Caronia, Mike Yastrzemski (if you can’t tell who’s grandson he is by the last name, are you even a true fan of baseball?), Chance Sisco, Drew Dosch (went on to break coach Ryan Minor’s hit record as a Shorebird) and Trey Mancini for the spotlight. This year he is up against Alex Murphy (7 Day DL right now), Conor Bierfeldt, Jomar Reyes and fan favorite Jay Gonzalez.

2015 Baltimore Ravens Regular Season Game-by-Game Predictions

The 2014 season ended roughly for Baltimore once again amidst  a heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots in the Divisional Round. Expectingly, many have deemed Baltimore as the most viable threat to unseat the Patriots in 2015. The Ravens have lost Haloti Ngata, the anchor of their defensive line. Torrey Smith has also departured to join former-teammate Anquan Boldin in San Francisco. That being said, the Ravens drafted very well and have brought in some good acquisitions, most notabley the recently added secondary help in Kyle Arrington from New England. Jimmy Smith has been re-signed and Dennis Pitta is primed to make a good return this season. The road ahead will be tough once again for the Ravens as they look to right the woes of this past postseason.

Jimmy Paredes – “Who IS This Guy?”

Jimmy Paredes -- Impact Player

Jimmy Paredes — Impact Player


GLEN SAINT MARY, FL – That’s the question an executive at my office (also an avid Orioles fan) asked me the other day.  I explained to him that he was a rising star in the O’s organization who had come to Baltimore and quickly proved himself as an everyday player.  Paredes spent time with Houston and Kansas City before his contract was purchased in the middle of last season by Baltimore to fill in for Manny Machado when he required season-ending surgery.
