Thank you for all the update.

It has been a while since I saw any reports about Nolan Reimold or POPE - the one coming back from leg injury?? What's happening with them lately?? LOVE getting the recaps and Miners reports. THANKS for them and keep them coming.

Is it just me or does every one of these minor league updates start with "Robert Andino does something good with the bat", and, if so, why is he still in Norfolk?

What does Sarfate have 51 K's in 35 innings?

A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer.
