Adios Brandon

On Tuesday, the Orioles announced they had traded Brandon Snyder, Oriole #885, to the Texas Rangers. I've enjoyed watching Brandon play his way from the Orioles farm system all the way up to Baltimore over the past four seasons and I hope that he finds more staying power at the MLB level in Texas than he did in Baltimore.

Brandon made his Orioles (& MLB) debut on September 10, 2010 but appeared in only ten games for the O's that season and just six in 2011. The team has had a logjam of 1B/3B type players in recent seasons which always limited his opportunities.

He was always a good signer during his time with the Frederick Keys and Bowie Baysox. I also saw him sign a few times during his stints in Baltimore too, so I would imagine that you Rangers fans shouldn't have trouble adding his signature to your collections.

And if you're on Twitter, you can follow Brandon (@BrandonSnyder29). He's pretty responsive to his fans so tweet away.

Good luck in Texas, Brandon!
