Rumblings began on Friday morning that the Orioles and center fielder Adam Jones were close to finalizing an extension that would keep the O’s star in Baltimore for the foreseeable future. This news sort of came out of nowhere, and for O’s fans it was absolute music to our ears. Jones has been a guy [...]

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. For the second time in 14 years, the Maryland men’s lacrosse team finds itself in the unenviable position of losing back-to-back National Championship games. After losing to Princeton in the ’97 and ’98 title games, the Terps failed to reach Memorial Day again until last season, when they fell [...]

Brian Matusz has been on a roller coaster since his first day in the big leagues. We have seen the young southpaw go from once highly touted prospect that would soon be the ace of the Orioles pitching staff to injury prone bust and now a bottom end of the rotation guy who could either [...]

The possibility of an all-Maryland NCAA Men’s Lacrosse championship final is within reach. It would mark the first time that two teams from the Old Line State played in the final since back in 1975, when the Terps knocked off Navy 20-13. Those that may be familiar with some of my past writings know that [...]

Ok seriously who are these guys and what have they done with our Orioles from the past 14 years? So far to date this team has showed us they are true competitors by hanging around late in games and despite not always winning they still manage to make some noise late and at least show [...]

Current Orioles J.J. Hardy and Bill Hall have been teammates before. From 2005-9, they were both members of the Milwaukee Brewers. That’s not the interesting part though. What I’ve just learned is that back in ’07, Hardy and Hall were – along with fellow Brew Crew members Jeff Suppan and Chris Capuano – on the [...]

What is it with those scumbag Yankee fans always getting carte blanche to interfere with baseball games? We O’s fans hardly need to hear the first three syllables of the name “Jeffrey Maier” before going into involuntary dry heaves. Then there was THIS guy during the playoffs last year. In Tuesday night’s O’s-Yanks contest, another [...]

For the second time this week, Matt Wieters was involved in a collision at the plate, and for the second time, Wieters came out on top. Unlike in Boston on Sunday though, Tampa infielder Sean Rodriguez really tried to bring the lumber, throwing a forearm shiver to Wieters’ facemask. If Wieters had dropped the ball [...]

For the second time in three days, the O’s were involved in a piece of baseball history. This time, though, they ended up on the wrong side. Given the way they play against the Orioles, I’m really not sure how the Texas Rangers ever lose a baseball game. They haven’t scored 30 runs in one [...]

Wow. That one word pretty much sums up that past road trip for the Orioles. After taking their fourth consecutive L against division rival New York to start the 6 game trip, the frustration of being able to squeak out wins against lesser competition but never really being able to compete against powerhouses such as [...]
