ESPN’s Buster Olney recently wrote an article praising the Orioles young base of talent. Baseball America listed Josh Bell as the fifth best prospect in the Arizona Fall League.
That same publication listed six Orioles among the best players in their Double-A and Triple-A leagues from 2009.
A picture has emerged that some national media think the O’s have top young talent to build around. The Orioles are not talking up their own players, others are doing it for them.
