Saturday Bird Droppings

BALTIMORE, MD - JUNE 10: Robert Andino #11 of the Baltimore Orioles flips the ball to J.J. Hardy #2 to start a double play to end the sixth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on June 10, 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by Greg Fiume/Getty Images)

The filth, the fury, the Flag Court.  The extra base hit drought is over and Jeremy Hellickson was not let off the hook.  I am looking forward to more competent baseball and the Belmont Stakes.  Ladies and gents, some clippings...
