Prospect Plus: Orioles Chance Sisco

Name: Chance Sisco 
Organization: Orioles 
Team: Delmarva Shorebirds
Position: Catcher
Organizational Rank: 10th ranked prospect in the Orioles system, according to Baseball America.
Stats vs. Lakewood Blueclaws: 1-5 with a double during a double header on Friday night. 

Positives:  Sisco has a good arm and soft hands, as should be expected, and his body does indeed look more like a catcher than infielder. At the plate, he should be able to bring his solid contact skills and quick bat to bear in the minors, while power may take a few years to really show up. Smooth lefthanded swing, according to Baseball America. He has bat speed with the ability to make solid contact and while you have to dream, there is future above-average power in the bat. 

Negative: Still learning how to catch, only started catching two years ago. He, like most catching prospect, will be a long term prospect.

Fever Pitch Day

Every year we get excited for our Rutgers  season football tickets to come in the mail and yesterday was the day. It was extra special because this year is their first year in the Big Ten.

Fore: Golden Horseshoe Green Course

I've played the Golden Horseshoe Green Course a couple of times and each time that I play it, I fall more and more in love with it. Monday was no different. 

It's a classic Reese Jones design built around the rolling hills of Williamsburg. The course plays for golfers at all levels. 

If you down in Williamsburg it's well worth playing.

Soccer jerseys all over

While traveling on the Cape Merry Ferry, I came across this man wearing an Atletico Mineiro Ronaldinho jersey. This man gets full marks for his kit selection.
