Radio station WNST is reporting the the O’s have finally found a way to unload shortstop Miguel Tejada, trading him to the Houston Astros.  In return, the O’s get 5 players: Luke Scott, Matt Albers, Troy Patton, Dennis Sarfate, and Michael Costanzo. Who? Yeah, we haven’t heard of them either. We’ll do some research on [...]

From the Associated Press: ” Jay Gibbons [was] suspended Thursday for the first 15 days of next season for violating baseball’s drug policy…. Gibbons accepted responsibility and apologized.’I am deeply sorry for the mistakes that I have made. I have no excuses and bare sole responsibility for my decisions,” the Baltimore outfielder said. “Years ago, [...]

The Chicago Cubs are apparently aggressively pursuing Brian Roberts. The Sun’s reporters give all the details here. Nick-a-What!? is reporting rumors of the Philadelphia Phillies trying to put together a package in which they would acquire both Erik Bedard and Miguel Tejada. Bedard has also been linked to several other teams, including the Mets, Dodgers, and [...]

Thank You, Eli Manning. Thank you. The New York Football Giants finally proved what we have known here in B-More since Monday, December 3rd: the New England Patriots CAN be beaten. As painful as it is to relive those final few moments from the Pats’ visit to M&T Bank Stadium that night, we now feel [...]

In not-at-all-surprising news, the Ravens announced that Rex Ryan will be returning as the team’s defensive coordinator, and will also be assistant head coach. Rex had been a leading candidate for the Atlanta Falcons head coaching job, but he felt he said something to hurt himself in the second interview, coming across as “not corporate [...]

A little bit about the Ravens’ new offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron: Age: 46 Coaching Experience: 1983-84 – University of Michigan Graduate Assistant 1985-93 – U. Michigan Quarterbacks Coach 1994-96 – Washington Redskins Quarterbacks Coach 1997-2001 – Indiana University Head Coach 2002-06 – San Diego Chargers Offensive Coordinator 2007 – Miami Dolphins Head Coach Awards: 2004 [...]

Updated at 4:45 pm  The Ravens have hired Cam Cameron as Offensive Coordinator. Also, the Atlanta Falcons have reportedly offered their head coaching spot to Jacksonville’s Mike Smith. Again shut out of the head coaching ranks, will Rex Ryan remain in B-More? More to come…

Sometime Friday around dinner time, we received word that the Ravens had hired John Harbaugh as the 3rd head coach in team history. Harbaugh, who coached the ‘Iggles defensive backs in 2007 after coaching their special teams for 9 years, has never been a coordinator, something many around town have been quick to point out. [...]

Philadelphia secondary coach John Harbaugh is in Owings Mills today for his second(ary?) interview. If the Ravens offer him the job, we expect him to jump all over it, unlike Garrett on Wednesday. In related news, WNST is also reporting that Marty Schottenheimers’ agent has told the Ravens that Marty Ball is “ready to listen” [...]

Jason Garrett has turned down the Ravens’ head coaching job, saying Baltimore just doesn’t appeal to him in the way that Dallas does. “After going through the interviews this week, in both Baltimore and Atlanta, I did some soul searching, and I just had to admit the truth to myself: I LOVE BIG D. I [...]
