Feel bad for Nolan, I know he wanted to get to pro ball but unfortunately negotiations broke down. As fans, we want to hoard players as long as we can, but at the same time I want to see him chase his dreams. Coming back puts a ton more pressure to perform at a high level, but doesn’t mean it can’t be done.

That said, the top half of our batting lineup looks really strong with Ehrhard, Riggio, brown, and McLean.

He was starting to come around at the plate the last 1/3 of the season. Hopefully he’s worked through the sophomore slump. Big time returner!

I was hoping Nolan would get paid a huge bonus and would have a great start to his career. But I’m thrilled to have him back and I hope that he has a dominant final season which earns him even more money next year.

How could the Orioles misjudge signing a high 3rd round pick? At the same time it’s a huge gain for us. Question is do you put him in the weekend rotation or bullpen? It’s also a huge gamble for him simply b/c unless he cuts down on the strikeouts tremendously, I don’t see his stock going higher IMO
Because it’s the Orioles…..

2022 signee INF Phoneix Meza (choctaw HS) was MVP of this summer league world series tournament. Ian Daugherty play in this tournament last year with success as well. I'm excited to see this guy play. Kid has some legit talent, but hopefully has the patience to wait his turn for at least a year.
