So, maybe Dylan Bundy should have been started above low-A ball. In his pro baseball debut, for the Delmarva Shorebirds, Bundy pitched 3 perfect frames (they're trying to limit his innings). He struck out 6, and apparently threw 21 out of 21 pitches* for strikes (that's 100%, which seems pretty good). Even though he's coming from high school, he's already 19 and is more advanced than your average high schooler. I don't think it'll be too long before Bundy moves up, maybe even hitting Double-A early enough to get a fair number of starts there this year. I'm not generally a fan of picking pitchers high in the draft (if there are comparable position players around), but if it works out it's pretty awesome.
In other top O's prospects news, Manny Machado homered on the first pitch he saw for Bowie and then added a single and a steal. Good day for the organization.* It was pointed out that that means the 6 K's were on 3 pitches each, and the other three outs were each on one pitch. Seems unlikely - the count is probably off. Or Dylan Bundy is made of magic.
BEST OF MAXIM
Camden Yards just became the premier destination for all baseball (and food) fans. They're now offering "bacon on a stick."
Twenty years ago, Cal Ripken Jr. had mixed feelings about the opening of Camden Yards.
Ripken wasn't eager to leave Memorial Stadium, but says when he walked into the Baltimore Orioles' new ballpark for the first time it already ''felt like it had a history.''

Fail. On the other hand, to be fair, this guy is a Baltimore Orioles fan, for Pete’s sake. I suppose he’d put his faith in just about anyone or anything if it meant restoring the team to relevancy. And it is the season opener at Camden Yards Friday afternoon, so perhaps invoking Tebow’s name, the [...]

Tonight, the Baltimore Orioles play their second game of the season as they face the Minnesota Twins at 7:05 p.m.
This is the second contest in a three-game set. Right-hander Tommy Hunter squares off against southpaw Francisco Liriano on the mound.

The Orioles picked up their usual Opening Day win yesterday, and are tied for first place in the AL East. Going wire-to-wire is probably going to require a second victory today, so they'll need to make that happen to keep the dream alive.The Twins (2011 stats):
In a little more than 24 hours, it will be Opening Day in the city of Baltimore for the Orioles.
It’s supposed to be a cool, but sunny day out at Camden Yards on Friday; however, I’ll be excited be to out at the park and the Birds of Baltimore start the season out on a high note.
The game is sold out on Friday, and I’ll be curious to see what attendance is like on Saturday...
