A 30-year-old life-long Marylander whose first sporting love was baseball. He likes Star Wars way too much to ever be considered a normal person. As his handle may suggest, he thinks that no trip to Camden Yards is complete without eating an Esskay hot dog, with the ketchup on one side of the bun and the mustard on the other. His real name is Mark.

Orioles rained out on Tuesday - open thread

The Orioles are rained out on Tuesday night, which sucks. There is still some other baseball to watch, if you like.

Rays @ Orioles. Series opening game thread.

Orioles hitters try to stop sucking against Chris Archer and the Rays. Remains to be seen whether they are successful in this endeavor.

Rays @ Orioles - Monday lineups & notes

The Rays come to Camden Yards to begin a three-game series on Monday night. Probable starting pitchers are Chris Archer for the Rays and Wei-Yin Chen for the Orioles.

Hunter blows save but O's beat Jays 2-1 in 12th

The Orioles allowed a scoreless drought to stretch on to 15 innings before getting on the board. They overcame a blown save by Tommy Hunter to go on to a 2-1 win in the 12th thanks to a Steve Lombardozzi triple and a David Lough single.

Orioles off night open thread

The Orioles aren't playing tonight, but there's still baseball to watch, and we'll be here watching it.

Finding meaning in Weeks' meaningless journey

Jemile Weeks went on a journey on Tuesday and Wednesday. It meant nothing in the end because he was never added to the Orioles roster. Is there any meaning in that meaninglessness?

O's offense breaks out in 14-5 win over Yankees

The Orioles offense unloaded on the Yankees on Tuesday afternoon, breaking out for 20 hits in a 14-5 victory. Adam Jones, Delmon Young, and Matt Wieters all hit home runs for the O's.

O's @ Yankees. Last of the day games (for now).

Maybe Orioles baseball will start being fun again today. The odds aren't looking very good, though, because Delmon Young is batting second against the Yankees.

Jimenez, O's continue struggles in 4-2 loss to NYY

The struggles of Ubaldo Jimenez early in his Orioles career continued on Monday. He walked five and gave up eight hits in only 4.2 innings. Meanwhile, the Orioles offense was largely terrible and they had two runners thrown out on the bases.

O's @ Yankees. What's with all these day games?

Can the Orioles spoil the Yankees home opener and make it a modest two-game winning streak? It'll be Ubaldo Jimenez starting for the O's against Hiroki Kuroda for New York.

O's offered Britton for I. Davis in offseason

The New York Daily News reported on Saturday that over the offseason, the Orioles offered lefty Zach Britton to the Mets for first baseman Ike Davis. The Mets declined the trade at the time, and the deal is no longer on the table from the Orioles end

Bundy, Machado rehab progress & Fri. night thread

The Orioles game on Friday afternoon didn't have much good news, but there was some good news to be had on the injury recovery for both Dylan Bundy and Manny Machado.

Game 4 thread: O's @ Tigers, 1:08.

An altered Orioles lineup takes the field for a bizarre Friday afternoon game early in the season. The O's will be facing fourth place Cy Young finisher Anibal Sanchez after getting in to Detroit at 4am or later. What could go wrong?

O's struggle on D, drop game to Red Sox, 4-3

The Orioles just couldn't get it together on defense on Thursday night and Wei-Yin Chen paid the price, giving up 12 hits in 5.2 innings. A 4-3 loss to the Red Sox gives them the series loss in their first series of the year.

Game 3 thread: Red Sox @ Orioles, 7:05

Your starting pitchers are Wei-Yin Chen and Felix Doubront as the Orioles take on the Red Sox in the finale of their opening series. A third of the O's lineup completely sucks against Doubront. What could go wrong?

Game 2 thread: Red Sox @ Orioles, 7:05pm

Ubaldo Jimenez makes his Orioles debut on Wednesday night. The O's lineup will go up against John Lackey of the Red Sox, against whom many of them have struggled. Wire-to-wire and undefeated seasons are still alive - for now.

Orioles off night open thread

It's an Orioles off night, but there's still baseball to be had. This is the place for the true junkies of the sport.

Opening Day game thread: Red Sox @ Orioles

The regular season is finally here. Thank goodness. Go Orioles.

Podcast: Orioles season preview w/ Mark and Stacey

Another season begins and another Camdencast is upon us. Mark and Stacey lock in their win predictions for the upcoming year and run through what to hope for from as many players on the team as they can think of. Go O's!

O's set roster; Markakis may miss Opening Day

The Orioles finalized their 25-man roster officially on Sunday, placing a bunch of guys on the disabled list, including Manny Machado. Mike Belfiore was designated for assignment. Also, Nick Markakis may miss Opening Day with a sore neck.

Jonathan Schoop expected to make O's 25-man roster

Second base prospect Jonathan Schoop is expected to make the Orioles Opening Day roster. He could split time between second and third base. How do you think that will work out?

Top 40 Orioles of All Time: #2, Brooks Robinson

Brooks Robinson is the greatest third baseman in baseball history. Anyone who tells you otherwise is kidding themselves. We are lucky to have him be a part of Orioles history too. He is our #2 greatest Oriole.

Rays @ O's. Last game of the Grapefruit League

You get radio but not TV in the final Orioles game of the Grapefruit League. WBAL is where it's at. The lineup looks a lot like an Opening Day lineup, and the starting pitcher is in the rotation, so it's sort of close enough to real baseball.

Why the Orioles will win the pennant

The Orioles probably won't win the World Series this year, but it isn't much fun to think about that. This is why they will win.

Reimold to DL, Urrutia & 3 more sent to O's minors

The Orioles made another four roster moves between games on Wednesday, optioning Steve Johnson and Henry Urrutia to Norfolk and reassigning Quintin Berry and Alexi Casilla to minor league camp.

O's Wednesday doubleheader: Red Sox, then Rays

Spring training is winding to an end. Thank goodness. There are two Orioles games on Wednesday. One does not exist on TV or radio. The 7:05 game, against the Rays, will be on the MLB Network.

Reasons to worry about the 2014 Orioles

Yesterday, Steve told you why he was hopeful for the upcoming year. Now it's time to face reality and realize what will possibly end up being soul-crushingly terrible about the 2014 Orioles.

O's announce rest of rotation, no surprises

The Orioles made the rest of their starting rotation official on Tuesday, with manager Buck Showalter announcing that Wei-Yin Chen would start the third game of the season. Miguel Gonzalez and Bud Norris are also in the rotation in an unknown order.

Red Sox @ Orioles. Last MASN game of the spring.

The Orioles will play their last MASN game of the spring on Monday afternoon. Unless it rains and they don't play the game. Then no fake baseball for you.

Top 40 Orioles of All Time: #4, Eddie Murray

Our #4 Oriole didn't get to spend his whole career here, but he played his best decade-plus in Baltimore. His number is retired, his statue is out in Legends Plaza, and he had awesome sideburns. He is Eddie Murray.
