The Triple-A Norfolk Tides lost in the final at-bat against the Pawtucket Red Sox, while the Double-A Bowie Baysox dropped the game to the Harrisburg Senators in extra innings.

any chance the Os get Guzman up for a viewing. seems to be hitting the ball with some authority.
I figure that the major league club is such a
tragic, flawed-to-begin-with banged-up, mangled, mismanaged mess that the purge will start sooner than later, and they'll need some players before too long

nice to see matt angle performing well at bowie. hopefully he can turn into our leadoff hitter of the future which the ML club desperately needs. could he get up to norfolk at some point this year?

Anyone else notice that before the season started we were bragging about all the weapons we had in the minor leagues--how stacked the pitching staffs were going to be yet Norfolk has a losing record and with the exception of Arrieta and Tillman the pitchers are a bust thus far--the Erbe's, Pattons, Spoone's, Britton's, of the world seem to have been overhyped--haven't seen that happen before???

Vernon- Of the prospects in the Minors, only Arrieta and Tillman were seen as prospects who might be called up throughout the year. Erbe, Patton, Spoone, and Britton weren't projected to be "major league" ready until the following year. Thanks for having your glass half empty.....u sound like Wayne

Human--why whenever someone says something negative about the Orioles they get bashed and called names by the ones who disagree I've been rooting for the Orioles and have and will continue to stick by them from probably before you were born . Why can't views be expressed without childish name calling.
