Ho hum, Chris Tillman scoreless

1

Chris threw 6 innings of shutout ball. 6 Hits, 6K's, no walks. ERA is 2.50 right now. I know most are going to disagree, but I would bet he's in Baltimore sooner rather than later.

Orioles trade for Mike Aubrey

2

He's a first baseman and he's not particularly good. Hitting 292 with 5 HR's in 57 AAA games. He's 27 and seems to be hurt more than he's healthy. Cost us a PTBNL. Maybe this will give the Orioles flexibility to move our Aubrey.

Brian's first start in Bowie

4

Pretty friggin good. 6 IP, 0 ER (although 1 unearned run), 1BB, 3H and 10K. Baysox won 4-1

Brian Matusz moving to Bowie

3

Looks like he's moving up a little earlier than expected.

Nick Markakis Video Diary

How many times can a guy say "you know" and "uhm" in 3 and a half minutes? And I'm not sure why they call this a video diary.

Baseball Reference

Sorry to hawk someone else's site, but has anyone checked out the new BaseballReference.com site?   Some of the new features are pretty friggin great.   You want to know Mora's stats between 2002...

Albers to the bullpen

2

I'm kind of surprised this decision was made so early. I thought he was probably one of the better candidates for the rotation.

Bill Rowell moves to the OF

8

I realize he's only 20, but I take this to mean he's pretty much a bust.

Poor Arod

Looks like Oriole fans won't be able to greet Arod on opening day.   According to his brother, he's going under the scapel and rehab should take about 10 weeks. h...

BP thinks Matt Wieters is pretty good too

Baseball Prospectus came out with their top 100 prospects today and the future HOFer is #1.    No surprise, it's either him or Price.   Other Orioles are Chris Tillman at #16, Brian Matusz at #19,...

Adam Dunn to the Expos

2

I haven't seen the money mentioned yet, but I'm guessing 2 years at $20M. $10M per would be a huge bargain and it could be even cheaper

Not so fast Ty

It seems something may have come up in Ty's physical and the O's apparently want a second look.   http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/sports/schmuck/2009/02/orioles_lets_get_physical.html It sucks if...

Ryan Howard resigned $54M/3 years

This is a bit off topic, but doesn't that seem like grossly overpaying for a guy with 2 years of arbitration left?   Especially a guy whose stats have been declining every year.  Seems that in...

MASN interview with MacPhail

+

It's broken up into four parts. Nothing of major interest here until the very end. Andy mentions that he has hopes that Ty or Ryan can fill in at short; allowing the O's to go with 13 pitchers. Not sure I like that idea and I would guess that Chris Gomez doesn't like the idea either.

Resigning Brian Roberts

I kind of gave up on anything happening with BRob this offseason, but I guess Brian does want to stay after all.  According to Ken Rosenthal, Orioles have offered $30M for 3 years.   Brian wants 4...

Matt Wieters Chat on ESPN

13

The future HOF'er will be there to answer your questions at 4pm. I'm guessing most of the answers will be to the effect: "I just worry about what I can control" and "I'm trying to make the most out of every oppurtunity".

Our boy Gibbons wants another shot

Yeah, he sucked.  Yeah he liked needles.  But I kind of admire the guy for coming out, swallowing his pride and asking for a shot: Writing this letter is both painful and humiliating. It has...

Trax is coming back

O's sent Olson down to AAA and looks like Trax is going to start for us tomorrow night.  I'm hoping this is just an audition for a trade.  Trachsel has done a pretty good job for us, better than...
