Stan The Fan Says Passing On Rutschman, Drafting Under Slot May Make More Sense For Orioles

May 15, 2019
PressBox's chief grand poobah Stan "The Fan" Charles joined Glenn Clark Radio in studio for another round of "Five Words Or Less." 

The sports figures discussed this week were: 
-"While the Pelicans won the NBA Draft Lottery last night and will almost certainly take Zion Williamson with the #1 pick, it is apparently not enough to change his wishes as multiple sources reported last night he still wants to be traded," Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis-G
-"For some reason, the internet seemed to be very angry at him for comments he made this week about mentoring rookie quarterback Drew Lock-despite the fact that all he really said was quote 'I hope he does develop but I don't look at that as my job. My job is to go win football games for this football team' unquote," Broncos quarterback and former Raven Joe Flacco-S
-"He will be using a cart during this weekend's PGA Championship after applying for one through the Americans with Disabilities Act because of arthritis in his knee. Tiger Woods reacted to the news by pointing out that he walked and won the 2008 US Open with a broken leg," two time major champion John Daly-G
-"As was pointed out on Twitter by Jon Heyman, he has allowed no more than one earned run in five of his first six starts-the first Oriole to do so since Steve Barber in 1960. His hot start has Orioles fans wondering if he might be the real deal or he's fools' gold who the Birds should try to sell high as soon as possible," starting pitcher John Means-S
-"While you were gone, Maryland basketball landed a commitment from him-the former number one ranked center in the class-fortifying the belief of many that they will be a top ten team next year," oft-injured seven footer Chol Marial-G
-"The future of Preakness and Pimlico is in the forefront of conversation this week and he told the Baltimore Sun that the notion of rebuilding Pimlico for 424 million dollars is crazy because it can be done for less than 200 million by utilizing NASCAR-like bleachers and more temporary luxury seating like what is used at major golf tournaments-particularly considering the facility will only host massive crowds for one weekend a year," former Maryland Jockey Club CEO Joe DeFrancis-S
-"As Loyola prepares to face number one seed Penn State this weekend, he looks to get back to Championship Weekend knowing that if the Hounds lose, his college lacrosse career is over," the NCAA's all-time leader in career assists Pat Spencer-G
-"While more and more fans have assumed the Orioles will take Adley Rutschman with the number one overall pick in the MLB Draft, Fangraphs was the latest to speculate that the team could consider trying to save money to get more talent later in the Draft and instead go underslot with the first pick and take someone like him," Cal first baseman Andrew Vaughn-S
-"Despite using real fighters in many of the Creed and Rocky movies, when asked by TMZ if he'd be cool with seeing UFC star Conor McGregor cast in Creed III he was rather dismissive, saying quote 'eh, I don't know about that, man,' unquote;" Creed star and former star of The Wire Michael B. Jordan-G
-"It has been a tough week in celebrity deaths as we have lost the likes of Tim Conway, Doris Day and also her at the age of 72," former star of The Mod Squad Peggy Lipton-S
