Boy, post graduate life is surely different than I thought.

I'm a local Florida kid with Idaho roots, and pit stops in Maryland and Virginia. Love to read and write about anything Boise State, Baltimore Orioles, Washington Redskins and occasionally the Caps. Biding my time on Bleacher Report (possibly the greatest thing since fries in a Frosty) until Baseball America calls my name (still waiting Jim Callis, still waiting).

Clearly, a passion of mine is throwing out my opinions on the minor leagues, and hey, when you're an Orioles fan, that's about the only place to look for hope. Aside from my Jim Callis obsession, I also enjoy the writings of Roch Kubatko, Steve Melewski, Will Lingo and John Manuel of Baseball America, and Tim Kurkjian, Buster Olney, Jim Caple and Jayson Stark of ESPN.

I currently work in high-end fashion, but my true passion hopefully seeps into the detailed cache of articles I write here, especially those about my beloved Orioles. Though they may be in the midst of consecutive losing season number whatever, I choose to bide my time heralding the encouraging news of their minor leaguers, until one day...when the Orioles return to the glory of the 1970s.

In all honestly, though, as a Redskins/Orioles/Capitals/Wizards fan, I'm not sure what I would, or could, do in the event that any one of those teams won anything.

My most recent ventures include a writing turn for troughnetwork.com, as well as ProDraftCentral.com and my own personal draft haven mlbdraftcountdown.wordpress.com.

    You had Ty Hensley from Edmond Santa Fe high school as a late 1st round selection in the 2012 MLB draft, but you didn't have any video of him. Here's some if you are interested.

    Hey, would you be able to send your e mail to klangan@omnipossible.com? I want to get the B/R community leaders on a mailing list for a press release on behalf of Sports Media 101.

    New site looks pretty good, Zach. I've added to my list of "follows".

    I've seen in excess of sixty mock drafts over the past week. Only one had Hultzen going to Seattle. Not sure what you based it on, but good call.

    Purke is injured also. George Springer also looks to be slipping.
