Something about him or just his ability level? He's not THAT bad to skip Holliday's debut, lol. 5ish ERA guy I think.

I was wondering today how many players down through the years homered in their first major league at bat.  Can't be too many.  I vaguely remember Bert Campenaris being one of them back in the prehistoric days.

I appreciate you looking that up.  Can't believe there were that many.  Quite a few of them in the 2000's and then as you go back to before the 1970's, they're a lot more rare.

Not too many Orioles have done it. (I counted two, but I could have missed somebody)

It looks like the last Orioles to do it was Luis Montanez in 2008. I barely remember this guy played MLB, much less for the Orioles.

I was a little surprised they didn't let him make his debut on Friday at home.

 

Maybe the thinking was that doing it on the road would be less of a circus?

 

Or maybe they're looking at the Yankees and thinking, 'we don't have a moment to spare'

You don't remember when he was the MVP of AA ad a 26 y/o in like 2008 and a bunch of people were trying to make that mean he finally figured it all out? He was a former #3 overall pick I think.

Had to be today for the possible draft pick.

As in, if he wins ROY?

 

Interesting tradeoff - draft pick versus another year of service time

Jake Fox, Jon Knott and JR House say hi.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

For anyone out of the O's market and you don't have an MLBTV subscription, this is the Free Game of the Day, so no sub necessary to watch.
