Dylan Bundy was the Orioles’ top draft pick. I can’t say that I like interleague play, but based on what he said about the Bryce Harper argle-bargle while appearing on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore yesterday, I’d like to see the Nats and Orioles play 50 times a year starting in 2013:
Host Steve Davis: “So Dylan I’ll ask you the question: if you were facing Bryce Harper in the next game or you were the next pitcher to face him, what happens to Bryce Harper?”
Dylan Bundy: “Well if I was pitching the next game I’d hit him all four at bats.”
Remember that stuff I said about someone in the Nats organization needing to sit down and talk with Harper? Yeah, same goes for Bundy and the Orioles.
Cavan Biggio, son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, has been called up by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Biggio, 24, was a fifth round selection in the 2016 draft. So far this year he has put up a .307/.445/.504 batting line with six home runs and five steals Triple-A Buffalo. He’s a utility guy of sorts, having spent time at first, second, third and all three outfield positions so far this year. He, perhaps ironically, has not caught yet in his pro career, nor does he play short. Still, that kind of flexibility in a young player can be pretty useful in this age of big bullpens. Especially if he continues to rake like he has. He’ll likely mostly play second base for the Jays starting out.
With Vlad Guerrero Jr. playing third base every day, Toronto now has two sons of Hall of Famers on their roster. That’s pretty neat.
