Amber Theoharis: O's getting only decent average from Vladimir Guerrero
"So Guerrero is your leader. Is that hard to get excited about? For me, it is - simply because Guerrero's ability to hit for average this year been overshadowed by his inability to hit for power or drive in runs, which is his job." That seals it for me - Amber for Analyst in 2012! -duck

School of Roch: Matusz makes wrong kind of history

"It’s tough going out there, especially when the offense jumps out to a nice start and provides some run support," Matusz said. "It’s frustrating to be able to go out there and not hold the opponent. It’s tough, but I’m just going to keep building, keep working. That’s all I can do."

OriolesHangout.com - O's nip BoSox, avoid 100-loss season
The Orioles officially avoided a 100-loss season-- and dealt another blow to panicking Red Sox Nation-- with a skin-of-their-teeth, 6-5 victory in game one of a doubleheader in Boston. The nightcap of the doubleheader, however, was a far more ridiculous and depressing affair, with Brian Matusz and the O's absorbing an 18-9 shellacking from the prolific Boston bats.
