Billy Rowell…Biggest O’s BUSTED #1 Draft Pick

 This baseball card may be the only time you see wasted #1 Draft Pick Billy Rowell in a O’s uniform. Drafted as the 9th overall pick in the 2009 Amatuer Draft, Rowell was once considered the air-apparent to Melvin Mora. Well some 4 years later, the power hitting 3rd baseman, is still in Frederick, filthy rich from his 2.1 million dollar signing bonus(wasted money). In 4 damn years this kid hasnt even made it to Bowie to see Louie(the lovable mascot).

With 3rd base prospect Bell ready to crack the O’s roster, Rowell will become just another overpaid prospect, riding the minor league bus. This is the problem with the O’s organization. Scouts have NOT done there job. Remember Adam Lowen?  High Draft Picks with nothing in return.
