Iggy’s Baltimore Sports Report – July 11, 2016

No deal yet on Tucker and his franchise tag and this week is the deadline to make a deal or ride out the tag. Camp opens July 30, with the first presason game August 11.

Orioles have demonstrated their ability to hit, but starting pitching could be their downfall. The All-farce game is this week, where the most popular
players face off to determine which league will have the home field advantage in the World Series. To bad the teams aren’t picked by statistics, making
the game truly an all-star game, and not just an all popularity game.

What do you want to see in the Ravens report? What should be scrapped? Actually, never mind. No one is reading this anyway so you probably won’t know the difference. Send an email to iggy at tealdragon.net. Thanks!
