Man, what a bummer this whole thing has been. Adam really was a great prospect when we drafted him, albeit he might have looked better comparitivly speaking because our system was pretty bare at the time. I just thought that Adam would finally put it together this year and develop into a near top of the rotation guy for us. The O's are pretty much in the driver's seat in this one as they will probably get Loewen at the league minimum in a minor league deal. Adam is going to have a ton of resources at his disposal, but let's face it, even under the tutelage of Charlie Manuel, his chances of having any kind of a major league career would still be pretty slim. Sorry if I'm being overly pessimistic, but I just don't see it happening.
The club also outrighted Randor Bierd, Rocky Cherry, Brandon Fahey, Jeff Fiorentino and Omar Santos to Norfolk.
Good luck, Adam.
