Plate Discipline Keeping Dariel Alvarez in Norfolk

– Mike Travers, Birds Watcher

The Orioles have had a serious problem getting production out of their corner outfielders, and many have been clamoring for outfield prospect Dariel Alvarez to be given a look. Alvarez is hitting for power and has a decent average, but has walked at just a 3.08 percent in the minor leagues and a on base percentage worse than that of Travis Snider and Nolan Reimold.

Joe Flacco set to have his best season ever?

– Brett Foote, Ebony Bird

The Baltimore Ravens are coming off a season in which they broke all sorts of franchise numbers on offense. Could Flacco break those numbers again in 2015? With Marc Trestman now running the offense, Joe Cool could obliterate his passing numbers from a year ago.

The torch has been passed to Dwayne Haskins

– Chris Bengel, Terrapin Station

When the Bullis School quarterback chose the University of Maryland over other elite programs, he vowed to bring more high-level prospects to the Terps with him. He wants College Park to be like Miami was in the 80s, and the future quarterback has taken it upon himself to keep “The Movement” going.
