I'm no expert and don't pretend to be. But I see a continuing trend within the Orioles organization over the past 15 years, a majority of their highly touted talent becomes less refined and actually tend to get worse the longer they stay within this organization. Is there a philosophical flaw that isn't being addressed and repeated with the Oriole's prospects. It just seems that the Oriole's prospects get fundamentally worse the longer they stay within this system. From low A to the major leagues the list of players that have back slid is astounding. Am I the only one that has recognized this trend and if so give me hope, tell me I'm wrong. This organization has sold it's fan base hope on the premise of "building from it's youth" but do they have the right personnel in place to accomplish the task.
