It’s that time of year again – time for the Nest to send two lucky Ravens fans to M&T Bank Stadium to watch the Ravens play FOR FREE! This year’s prize is 2 tickets to the Ravens vs. Carolina Panthers preseason game on Thursday, August 12. This will be the third year we’ve done this. [...]

The Ravens’ week of terrible news wasn’t finished yet, it seems. This morning, on the first official day of training camp, ominous news started to trickle out of Westminster via several sources on Twitter…. Gulp. On the day that Fabian Washington is taken off the PUP list, and Lardarius Webb’s status still very much up-in-the-air, [...]

With under 48 hours remaining in the trade deadline, the Orioles have made their first of what we hope to be many moves to salvage something positive from this absolutely horrific season. Miguel Tejada was traded to the San Diego Padres for RHP prospect Wynn Pelzer and some cash. To fill the hole in the [...]

It’s official, mere days after BMoreBirdsNest posted about Andy McSnailPhail taking forever to name a new manager for the Orioles, the team has finally come to an agreement with the very recognizable Buck Showalter. Showalter, who quit his job at ESPN for the Orioles gig, now joins his 4th franchise as a manager. Buck managed the [...]

Now there’s a headline I bet you never thought you’d read. I know it’s one I never expected to write, but here we are. The Ravens’ top 2 draft picks, “Mount” Terrence Cody and Sergio Kindle, are making quite an impression during this, the first week of training camp. Cody, as we’ve all heard way [...]

Luke Scott- doing his best NBA impression When Luke Scott injured himself jogging around the bases after smacking one of his 17 home runs this season, everyone in Birdland couldn’t believe how quickly someone’s trade value could decrease… and at the worst time possible. Scott was eventually placed on the 15-day DL and since then [...]

From The Baltimore Sun: The Orioles will continue without a permanent manager until at least after the non-waiver trade deadline passes on Saturday, no matter how the team fares on its current road trip. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail reiterated today that he does not have a set timeline for hiring someone to [...]

As if watching Ed Reed slip into bat-shit insanity last week wasn’t distraction enough as the Ravens get set to enter training camp, some more disturbing news rolled in over the weekend. The Ravens top draft pick of 2010, Texas linebacker Sergio Kindle, suffered a head injury falling down some stairs. From USA Today: Baltimore [...]

So once again I have to begin a post/discussion with the disclaimer that I am a huge Ed Reed fan. Number 20 has been causing some waves this offseason – first he came out and said that he had some offseason hip surgery, from which he was only about 30-35% recovered. Then in the next [...]

Happy 30th O’s…. it’s e’ffing July. With 11 days left to spare in the month, the Orioles pulled off their 30th win in extra inning fashion beating the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 11-10 in 13 innings. For comparisons’ sake, the Yankees reached the 30-win plateau back on May 30th. Of course, the “monumental” win was [...]
