Open Thread: Wednesday Afternoon Baseball

Nothing better than some afternoon baseball to get you through hump day. If you’re following along, feel free to chime in. Last night’s win felt like one of the bigger wins of the season. Coming off of two straight losses in which the starters blew leads, with the mercurial Brian Matusz taking on the Red […]

A Brick Wall Named Josh

There’s a thin line that exists for Orioles fans this season between having confidence in this surprising, 1st-place team and feeling like it’s all ready to come tumbling into disarray once again. For many O’s fans, Josh Hamilton provided that little shove over that thin line. And then he provided an extra kick in the […]

New MASN Post, Absence Explained

New post up over at MASN today (it happens every Wednesday) wherein I try to peel back a layer of “why?” in terms of Camden Yards attendance. And yet, even on a chilly Tuesday night in April against the Blue Jays, there is activity in the Yard. Not a lot and not as much as […]

Fantasy Football Advice From the Chop

Ed. note: this post comes to us courtesy of semi-frequent contributor The Baltimore Chop, whose name you’ve seen around here once or twice before. If you like the cut of his jib, consider casting a vote or two. Have you ever had a conversation with someone who plays the lottery? I don’t mean the folks […]

All Kinds of Change, Orioles and Otherwise

There is, on one level, the obvious change: the Orioles seeking to basically remake their power structure in light of both Andy MacPhail and Joe Jordan departing, to say nothing of the need to fill two positions on the field coaching staff. This is the sort of thing we generally discuss. On another, less visible […]
