I thought Radhames Liz would be the obvious choice for the Orioles' minor league Pitcher of the Year Award, but many of you went in another direction.
Liz is joined in the festivities by Player of the Year Brandon Tripp, an outfielder at Single-A Delmarva, and catcher Brandon Snyder, the Orioles' first-round pick in 2005 who receives the Comeback Player of the Year Award.
Single-A Frederick's Tommy Thompson, fresh off a Carolina League championships, will receive the Player Development Award. Frederick pitcher Jason Berken won the Community Service Award. And Jim Richardson will be given the Scout of the Year Award.
Is this the first year that John Stephens wasn't named Pitcher of the Year? Seems like he got it every year, even after he left the organization.
