Sunday Bird Droppings

Hello, friends.  It's thus far been a pretty super weekend of Orioles baseball.  While my bout with Tillmania subsides, I am getting kinda psyched to watch some Zach Britton.  Who's with me?

The Schmuck Stops Here: Drama club For the heck of it, let's see what the Schmucker has to say about last night.

Orioles Insider: Simon arrives in Florida; will work out at Orioles' minor-league complex soon  In case you didn't hear last night, Alfredo Simon has obtained his visa and will be resuming baseball activities.

Orioles could be surprise team of 2011 - SweetSpot Blog - ESPN Oh, ESPN...I mean, how many stories CAN you write about the most storied rivalry in the history of the most storied franchise of the Derek JetERA?  This cat's clearly off the reservation.

Were the Yankees cheating on Opening Day? | HardballTalk Um...the answer is obviously yes, right?  There may have been some downright rotten dudes playing for the Yanks in the Torre era, but I always got the sense he was decent guy beneath the sanctimony.  Not real fond of Joe Girardi, though.

Career Profile: Pat Hentgen - Minor League Ball Sickels surveys the career of the momentary O.

April 3 - BR Bullpen Today in baseball history, including the O's debut of Jimmy Key.

Must C Clutch: Markakis makes a game-saving catch | MLB.com
I have to add this to the clippings. It's video of Nicky's game saving catch last night, played three times: once with Gary Thorne's call, once with Joe Angel's call, and once with the Rays' announcer. It's awesome. - Stacey 

Happy Birthday KOJI!
