Troy Patton

In an off-season that has been viewed negatively by many towards the Orioles, they got a bit of more bad news this week. One of their pitchers will miss twenty-five games to start the season due to amphetamine use. From the Baltimore Sun: Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Troy Patton was suspended by Major League Baseball […]

Balfour In, Balfour Out…

Well, the offseason has not been going great for the Orioles. Why does it seem the more things change, the more they stay the same? This week, the Orioles though they found their new closer in Grant Balfour. However, they scoured over his medical records and found an issue with his shoulder during a physical. […]

Perception Is Reality…

The winter meetings have come and gone. Well, the general consensus among fans, the media, and whoever cares is this: the Orioles have done little to nothing of note so far in the offseason. Granted, there is still time left before spring training for the Orioles to make a move and improve the roster, but […]

Roberts off to New York … the Yankees, that is…

As you know by now, Brian Roberts has left the Orioles for the New York Yankees on a one-year deal. The Orioles (whether they wanted to or not) didn’t make re-signing him an immediate priority. Roberts had to do what he had to do. He was still a fit for the organization, as the Orioles […]

Moves Made so Far…

In life, perception sometimes is often reality. Well, with the flurry of activity during last week in the sport, the Baltimore Orioles were fairly quiet aside from a few small, under-the-radar deals. For a contender, the Orioles have been sitting on the sidelines, while their rivals in the division – the New York Yankees and […]

The Wieters Question

It has been a little less than two months since the 2013 baseball season has ended. There’s been a lot of talk about the Birds as of late, but little action so far in the offseason. There has been some chatter about J.J. Hardy and Matt Wieters being offered up in a trade. I think […]

Orioles name Dave Wallace pitching coach

From the Orioles… The Orioles today announced they have named DAVE WALLACE as their new pitching coach. Wallace brings a decade of experience as a major league pitching coach to his new role, including the 2004 World Series champion Boston Red Sox and 2000 National League champion New York Mets. He has worked as a […]

Season Over…

The season for the Orioles ended on Sunday, as they won a 7-6 thriller over the Boston Red Sox. They rallied from a 5-0 deficit, as they used a five-run fifth inning and a two-run sixth to down their divisional rivals. The Red Sox didn’t have their ‘A’ lineup in the game and pulled starter […]

Things aren’t going too good in Tampa Bay…

The Orioles are fighting for a chance to play in October and doing so valiantly; however, do you all feel that things will come up short for the black and orange in the final week or so of the 2013 season? They have eight games left and we all know that they have to win. […]

Orioles pull it out in Boston

The playoff push for the Orioles continued last night in Boston and they kept pace in the wild card hunt with a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox last night. As we all know, the Birds are fighting to play in October and despite only being about a .500 team since the All-Star break, […]

A Bronx Stomp & the Road Ahead…

The Orioles have 16 games left in the 2013 season. However, after what most of us saw this week with the resurgent New York Yankees taking three out of four from the Orioles, could it be over for them? Despite a comeback by the Birds on Thursday, after their loss, I figure they will now […]

Orioles Lose to Yankees on Tuesday

We are now down to the last 18 games of the 2013 regular season. The Orioles blew a golden opportunity last night to move within a ½ game of the Tampa Bay Rays – who currently hold the second wild card spot and lost to the Red Sox – as the New York Yankees defeated […]
