Hey guys and gals! As some of you know, I spent the weekend visiting my friend Jill and her husband Tristan in San Diego. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to catch a Padres game while I was...

Orioles 8, Braves 4: BIRDLAND Missed You, Eric O'Flaherty.

via d.yimg.com Okay, no one's done a game recap recently, and this one actually merits it, so let's dig in. For six and a half innings, this game followed a familiar script. After two batters,...

The Sun doesn't know the difference between Jeffrey Hammonds and Damon Buford

Nice to see that cutting 60% of your staff in 10 years does nothing to hurt the quality of your work. Seriously, guys? EDIT: I'm willing to bet that the photo comes from this game. June 25 vs. the Yankees, Damon scores the winning run in the bottom of the 10th on a walkoff walk. That took me about two minutes to find on B-R.

Adam Eaton - how low can he go?

Perhaps the past few games - really, the young season at large - have broken my brain, but I'm oddly excited about tonight. Adam Eaton starting in Yankee Stadium (2009 edition)? If Guts can give up...

Wieters Fun Facts

I know the Chuck Norris meme has been done to death, but some of these are pretty damn funny, especially the ones that are actually baseball-related. Example: "Bob Gibson admits that the inside of the plate belongs to Matt Weiters."

Josh (SF, CA): Some reports say the Marlins have the best combo of 3 prospects, and others say the Giants represent well at 4 prospects. What would you take: a top heavy system with a couple really high-end guys, or a very balanced system that consistenty produces starters? Keith Law: (1:36 PM ET ) The top-heavy system. I can find average players in trades. Stars are very difficult to acquire except through the draft. So give me the Giants' system or the Orioles' rather than a system with more average prospects (grade 50s) but no 55s or 60s.

From today's KLawChat. Mildly reassuring if you're worried about the O's lack of organizational depth, no?

My interview with John O'Donoghue

Hey guys, I just did an interview with John O'Donoghue, who pitched for the O's in 1993 and is the son of the other John O'Donoghue, who pitched for the 1968 O's and the immortal 1969 Seattle Pilots. John's a funny guy and he really put some thought into his responses. No one-word answers. Check it out at my website!

Mariners general manager Bill Bavasi told a Seattle newspaper that he wasn't disappointed in Bedard yet but ... "He cannot seem to get his feet on the ground in Seattle. He cannot get his arms around it yet. You see a brilliant outing, and then you see an awful outing. Right now, I wish his wheels didn't come off so easily."
