Stan The Fan Doesn't Think Orioles Ever Had Much Doubt They Were Taking Rutschman #1 Overall

June 4, 2019
PressBox's chief grand poobah Stan "The Fan" Charles joined Glenn Clark Radio in studio for another round of "Five Words Or Less" Tuesday. 

The sports figures discussed this week were: 
-"After much posturing, the Orioles finally selected him with the first pick in the MLB Draft last night, essentially making him the face of the franchise immediately," Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman-S
-"While he actually seemed to tone it down a bit during Game 2 of the NBA Finals, his antics this postseason-including mouthing off with Draymond Green and rubbing Nick Nurse's shoulders-actually invoked the league to have a meeting and request the Raptors have him ease up," rapper and Toronto ambassador Drake-G
-"11 years after he was fired by the team, owner Steve Bisciotti announced last week that he would be inducted into the team's Ring Of Honor this year," former Ravens coach Brian Billick-S
-"He has become a bit of a folk hero after his win over Anthony Joshua this weekend, particularly considering he doesn't look like the typical sports star," Mexican boxer and new Heavyweight champion of the world Andy Ruiz Jr.-G
-"An incident last week that saw him hit a little girl with a foul line drive and become understandably overwhelmed with emotion has re-ignited debate about whether the netting at baseball stadiums should extend all the way from foul pole to foul pole," Cubs outfielder Albert Almora-S
-"A strange follow-up to a story you discussed with Drew Forrester last week. He was suspended for making this comment on his PGA Tour Radio show when asked who he thought would win the U.S. Women's Open: quote "I'm gonna predict a Korean. I couldn't name you like, uh, six players on the LPGA tour. Nah, maybe I could. Well, I'd go with Lee, if I didn't have to name a first name, I'd get a bunch of 'em right." unquote. In a strange twist of irony, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee6 actually won the tournament this weekend, making some wonder if perhaps he has been vindicated," Tiger Woods' former coach 
Hank Haney-G
-"With DJ Stewart and now Chance Sisco having already been called up, it would seem as though perhaps he would be the next in line for a potential call to the bigs, particularly after a three home run game for the Norfolk Tides this weekend," Orioles prospect Ryan Mountcastle-S
-"Social media has been split over the news that instead of committing to play college basketball he would choose to play professionally in New Zealand-particularly because it was learned that he was still allowing schools to court him even after he had already signed his pro deal," five star guard RJ Hampton-G
-"For some reason the Oakland Raiders decided to sign him last week, despite a checkered past that included being arrested for his conduct at a funeral home," four time Pro-Bowl offensive lineman Richie Incognito-S
-"Leaked video on social media Sunday appeared to foreshadow James Holzhauer's loss on Jeopardy, snapping his 32 game win streak. Yet the internet was furious with this man for Tweeting a link to an interview with Holzhauer that included the result Monday because the show had only aired early in a few markets with most markets airing it at night" Action Network reporter and former ESPN personality Darren Rovell-G
