Orioles Think Tank

Orioles Coverage for the Information Age


Posted by Mike on July 27, 2006

The time has come and I am now officially under contract by FoxSport’s Scout.com network.  I’ve spent the past week taking in games at various minor league affilliates, collecting some prospect photos and talking to various members of the organization.  I hope you’ll take the time to check out the stories, interviews and rankings to come in the near future.  You can also enjoy Scout’s free O’s message board (with almost 2000 members) and premium message board (that is soon to be chock full of insider information). 

Scout.com combines FoxSports’ access and reputation with a talented group of team-specific writers.  It is the only network of its kind and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.  It’s a daunting workload, to be sure, but I have every intention (and will be given every opportunity) to build the best website of its kind. 

I’m extremely pleased with the rapid growth of Orioles Think Tank and I’ve enjoyed my status as an informed outsider.  I’ve learned a great deal from the people that comment here and especially the ones that have taken the time to send me emails.  I’m going to miss this informal format, but I think blogging has taught me a lot of things that I can bring with me to an established media outlet.  And I certainly look forward to the new challenges and responsibilities that come with much more access to the organization.  I can only hope that you’ll tag along for the ride.

OriolesThinkTank.Wordpress.com will continue to stand as an archive of sorts.  You can get to the new site by using any of the following URLs:




In addition, the site is accessible from the frontpage at http://www.FoxSports.com

**(NOTE:  As of Friday, August 4th, the site is up and running.)**

Have any ideas about how I can build the best site possible?  Any features you’d love to see?  How about just a question you’d like to see answered by a player or coach?  Feel free to email me at Mike@OriolesThinkTank.com or Publisher@InsideTheWarehouse.com

    Congratulations, Mike! If the fine work you’ve done here at OTT is any indication of what you’ll bring to Scout.com, I think you’ll be one hell of an asset to the network. I’m looking forward to your launch. Welcome aboard!

    Hey, I’m Cowboy an O’s Mod on the scout.com messageboard. I’ve always enjoyed your blog posts and I look foward to hopefully seeing a couple posts from you in the future on our board. Great board filled with great fans. Congrats.

    Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Sextette.

  8. How often do you yourself play basball and what position, or do you just write about it?

    Can I ask though – how did you get this picked up and into google news?

    Very impressive that this blog is syndicated through Google and is it something that is just up to Google or you actively created?

    Obviously this is a popular blog with great data so well done on your seo success..

    Baseball greats you should write about next!

  9. I agree 100% on what you have written on Redux when it comes to the link to their own Github from their website to the git page. I was on the site last night and clicked that little banner on the right to go to download the latest version. Click http://link.mx/hool082015
