The Success of Garrett Cortright

My favorite part about covering the Delmarva Shorebirds is not writing about top prospects. Yes, it is important for the fanbase to hear about Hunter Harvey and Chance Sisco, but it is also important to look for prospects who may fly under the radar. It is fun to see guys like Austin Wynns and Sebastian Vader who have …

Sebastian Vader: Past, Present, and a Promising Future

I have watched many baseball games in my life, and I have seen many great pitching performances. Most of these gems have been tossed by major league aces; I have witnessed guys like Chris Tillman, Jeremy Guthrie, Andy Pettite, and Stephen Strasburg overwhelm and overpower opponent lineups.

Austin Wynns: A Diamond in the Rough?

Austin Wynns is not a household name for any Orioles fan. Not many fans recognize the tenth-round pick out of Fresno State, and not many would be too impressed even after watching him. He has hit .234 since being drafted last year. So what is so special about this guy? Wynns will not impress you …
