A Little Bit of Housecleaning

Posted in Uncategorized on December 10, 2018 by oriolesprovingground

If anyone has been to this page recently, you’ve probably noticed that there haven’t been many posts. The truth is that I have posted since the essentially Dylan Bundy painting post, but all of them have been posted on Camden Depot, without my usual companion “summary” here on Orioles Proving Ground. As you can see, it’s still not much of a catalog, as my writing has been sparse the last year or two, and that is probably being generous. Anyway, here is a rundown of the posts I’ve authored at Camden Depot since April of 2016:

Blueprint for the 2017 Orioles (Option 3): Let’s Get Versatile (10/27/2018)

For what it is worth, the title of this post was supposed to be sung to the tune of Olivia Newton-John’s “Let Get Physical”

That’s it. Looks like a long list now that I am looking at it (and it’s more than I remember doing), however over the course of two and half years, that isn’t much. As anyone reading this is probably aware, Camden Depot shut down at the end of the 2018 season after 11+ years. I really enjoyed and appreciated the time I spent writing there and will hopefully be posting additional thoughts about that in the near future.
