Because I would normally choose this timeslot during the baseball season to honor my Shorebird of the Week, it’s only natural that I inaugurate the newly-created Hall of Fame page at this very moment.
Tonight I celebrate two of those who arose from the comparatively humble beginnings of Delmarva (this being the lowest-level full-season team of the Orioles) to make it all the way to The Show. It’s hoped that these two will be mainstays on the Orioles pitching staff as the team looks to rebuild through youth, with the pitchers leading the way against a loaded division.
This is one of the early highlights of the fifth year of monoblogue, and the plan is for me to spend next season watching and selecting even more prospects as they look to join this Hall of Fame in a future class. Hopefully you enjoy the presentation and I don’t mind suggestions for improvement either.
In the meantime, there’s just 18 weeks until April 3, 2010, when the fifth season of SotW will get underway, good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to be in my familiar seat again.
