This is a really slow time of year for news. Nothing is happening with the Orioles other than arbitration stuff, which isn't even all that interesting. Even the O's blogs have been slow as there just isn't much to write about. Speaking of O's blogs, there are a ton over on the sidebar, but if you're looking for some recommendations (as long as you promise not to start loving them better than us), here are the ones I read: Camden Crazies, Dempsey's Army, Roar From 34, and Card O the Day. I check all of the O's blogs on a semi-regular basis, but those four get the official Stacey seal of approval.
