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.

Friday Night Victory GIF Party: O's beat Rays, 4-1


It is Friday night. The Orioles have beaten the Rays. You know what must be done.

Rays @ Orioles. Odorizzi in the hizzy, yo.

The Orioles didn't bring their bats to the stadium for the day part of a day-night doubleheader against the Rays. Maybe they'll be here for the night part. Chris Tillman starts for the Orioles, with Jake Odorizzi starting for Tampa Bay.

Yanking Gausman around doesn't pay, O's lose 5-2

Turns out that yanking around Kevin Gausman probably didn't help his chances on Friday afternoon. He looked shaky in five innings of work. The Orioles offense effectively didn't show up, getting only three hits in a 5-2 loss.

Rays @ Orioles. Two games for the price of two.

It is the opening game of a four-game series and the day part of a day-night doubleheader. Kevin Gausman is back for the day to start this first game. The Rays are in last place. You know what to do, Orioles.

Tillman bests Tanaka, O's pile on bullpen, win 8-0

If someone told you that there would be a shutout in Sunday's Orioles game, you would have probably figured Masahiro Tanaka blanked the O's. Instead, the O's got three runs in seven innings against Tanaka and piled on the bullpen for a 9-0.

Orioles @ Yankees. Tanak-nak. Who's there?

The Orioles run into the buzzsaw that is Masahiro Tanaka on Sunday afternoon. Dang. Maybe Chris Tillman can turn in a good outing so we can still feel good about something.

Hardy finally homers in 6-1 Orioles win

It finally happened. J.J. Hardy homered. His first of the year was the fourth of the day for the Orioles, who scored all of their runs via the homer in a 6-1 victory over the Yankees on Saturday.

Kevin Gausman optioned, may be back w/ O's soon

The Orioles optioned Kevin Gausman to Norfolk at like 12:24am on a Saturday. That's not a joke. It may be a piece of Duquettian wizardry, meaning he won't be gone for long, but as they say in politics, it's bad optics.

Thursday O's off night open sports thread


The Orioles are off on Thursday night, but a lot of the rest of baseball is not, including a key divisional matchup between the Yankees and the Blue Jays, the two teams the Orioles trail in the standings.

Norris, Davis lead Orioles into win column, 3-2

Bud Norris, with a little help from his friends, turned in the Orioles' sixth straight quality start and got his sixth win as the Orioles beat the Blue Jays, 3-2, on Saturday afternoon.

Blue Jays @ Orioles. Score Runs Against Dickey.

Bud Norris looks to continue the string of quality starts by the Orioles rotation on Saturday afternoon. Maybe the hitters will even score a run against R.A. Dickey of the Blue Jays along the way.

Ubaldo walks five, O's score none in 4-0 loss

Ubaldo Jimenez walked five batters in six innings in a 4-0 Orioles loss to the Blue Jays on Friday night. Jimenez only allowed two runs, but the Orioles scored no runs, so that was that.

VIDEO: Machado throws bat, both benches empty

Manny Machado throws his bat onto the playing field. Was he trying to throw it at the pitcher who had just come way inside on him? What was he doing?

Machado acts like idiot, O's walk 11 in 11-1 loss

Ubaldo Jimenez was terrible and so was the Orioles offense in a 11-1 loss to the Athletics on Sunday that can only be described by an MS Paint Recap.

Athletics @ Orioles. No provision but an open face

On Sunday afternoon, the Orioles go for their second win in a row against the Athletics, which would settle the series in their favor. The starting pitching matchup is Ubaldo Jimenez against Scott Kazmir, though, so forget about that happening.
