Via Roch Kubatko of MASN comes this delightful little bit of information this morning. That’s right, The Duke of Earl, Earl Weaver, will throw out the first pitch at the O’s April 4th home opener. Awesome enough in itself. However, to add an exclamation point to the ceremony, Buck Showalter will be on the receiving [...]

The Buck Showalter quotes that have been floating around for about a week now are all from an article in the April issue of Men’s Journal. The entire article is now available online, and it would be well worth your time to go check it out. Here are some highlights (to my mind, at least): [...]

Buck Showalter (who is still on our shit list for the time being) and his staff made final cuts today down at O’s camp, optioning Craig Tatum, Zach Britton, and Brendan Harris to Triple-A Norfolk. With that, the roster that the team will bring north this week to start the season is officially set.  Here [...]

Well, that didn’t take long. Late last week, we O’s fans were rejoicing over Buck Showalter basically giving a middle finger to the Red Sox and Yankees, through his comments to Men’s Journal magazine. (Well, most of us were anyway.  Some people just can’t help but bash every single thing the O’s do, even when [...]

Here’s a curious little video of Adam Jones talking to the Baltimore Sun.  In a tirade filled chat, he discusses “fickle” O’s fans, saying that he has seen, with his own eyes, fans wear Oriole gear one day, then turn around when the Yankees or Red Sox are in town and put on the rival [...]

As if he hadn’t already done enough to win over the fans of Charm City, Buck Showalter may have just cemented himself as the City’s new favorite all-around person. According to The Bergen Record, the Buck truck had some pretty great things to say about New York Yankees’ captain Derek Jeter and Boston Red Sox [...]

With all the questions surrounding the Orioles coming into 2011, there is one thing that O’s fans know they should be able to pretty reliably count on: 24-year old Brian Matusz will continue his progression into a solid top-of-the-rotation starter. Matusz was lights out down the stretch in 2010, going 7-1 from August through October, [...]

Orioles pitcher Zach Britton added another line to his extremely impressive Spring Training resume yesterday, pitching five innings and allowing just one earned run against the New York Yankees.  That single earned run was Britton’s first of the spring in 14 innings pitched. The 23-year old lefty has allowed 14 hits in those 14 innings, [...]

With less than two weeks to go before the O’s home opener, comes some terrible news this morning regarding our beloved Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Per the Baltimore Sun, the center field wall ivy that, while not as iconic as the outfield ivy at Wrigley Field in Chicago, nonetheless is synonymous with “The Yard,” [...]

After being on the shelf for nearly three weeks – and giving all of Birdland a sense of deja vu combined with absolute dread in the meantime – Brian Roberts finally got back on the field Sunday in Port Charlotte, Florida. In three at bats, Roberts walked, struck out, and grounded out. Part of Roch [...]
