Do the O's Minor League Awards Matter?


The Orioles have honored Tim Bascom and Jonathon Schoop, among others, as their minor league award winners for 2011. Should we really care?

My Most Under-Appreciated Oriole Ever

Baltimore's Moneyball Players


There's the good teams, then there's the bad teams, then there's fifty feet of crap, and then there's the Orioles. The truth about the O's terrible situation is revealed through the lens of Moneyball.

Why is Brian Matusz falling apart?


Brian Matusz was supposed to be one of the best young pitchers in baseball this year, leading the re-born Orioles to a winning season. Why did it all go so wrong?

Taking a Look at the Orioles' Draft Spending


The Baltimore Orioles will tell you as often as they can about the importance of building through the draft. History has shown that that starts with spending a lot of money in the draft.

How Vlad is Making Me Doubt My Life as an Orioles Fan

Recapping the Orioles' Trade Deadline


The Orioles' trade deadline was mildly interesting. With the dust clearing, what's Birdland look like post-deadline?

One Does Not Simply Walk into Birdland


The Baltimore Orioles do not walk much as a team, preferring instead to be "aggressive" at the plate. Is this a flawed philosophy of a team in need of remodeling?

As the second half of the baseball season begins, the Orioles and the Indians meet again. And so, too, does Camden Chat and Wahoo Blues.

Baseball America: Manny Machado 5th Best Prospect


BA released their mid-season prospect ranking update today (top 50), and Machado is now a top five prospect in all of baseball. This, despite his knee injury and difficult time so far in Frederick, is pretty swell news for an organization that kind of needs it.

Time to Get Serious and Release Vladimir Guerrero


The Orioles signed Vlad Guerrero last February to show how serious they were about winning. But will they release him to do the same?

Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie leads baseball in losses. Why does this make some people think he's not really good?

Playing "Let's Make a Deal" with the Orioles


With another mediocre Baltimore Orioles team making their way to the annual trade season, should the Orioles really be looking at parting with some of their better players?

Did you win an Adam Jones bobblehead?


Last week's series in Kansas City offered you, loyal reader, the opportunity to win an Adam Jones bobblehead. And nearly one hundred of you answered the bell! Which is, weirdly, a little humbling...

Do you want to win an Adam Jones bobblehead?


Of course you do! I am packing up and moving everything I own from Arlington, Virginia to the slightly-different feeling Allentown, PA to start an exciting new job. In the process I found an extra...
