For those of you who don't visit Orioles Hangout, I thought I'd pass this along, as it's quite an interesting thing for a draft pick to do. Brian Matusz emailed the Hangout (I assume he emailed Tony Pente directly) regarding his future with the Orioles. Visit the link for Tony's entire article, but Brian's email contents are below.
With a lot of public interest in my signing with the Orioles, I thought it is important that I report to the Orioles fans how things are going.
Both the Orioles and myself have been working diligently on getting a deal done. I want to sign and will do so upon receiving a fair (not record breaking) deal. While I am not at liberty to discuss any parameters or numbers of the deal, I am hopeful that a resolution can be reached.
Thank you fans for all your positive support and messages, and I will be looking forward to seeing you at the ballpark soon.
