Brady Anderson was in the lobby of the Hilton Anatole when another former player came up to him and congratulated him on his new gig with the Orioles.
And what’s that gig?
Well Brady’s not really saying. He’s going to wait for the club to speak to that.
For the past two years, Anderson, one of the most popular players in club history, has helped out his old team in an unspecified role. He’s worked with players to improve their conditioning and at one point spent a chunk of time in Norfolk attempting to get Nolan Reimold out of his 2010 funk.
It seems like the role will be a little more structured, but still probably will be a hodgepodge of assignments. Some scouting could be mixed in. And I’d assume there would be some conditioning work, too.
Anderson, 47, still looks like he is in playing shape, although he hasn’t played in the majors since 2002.
