NEW YORK: J.J. Hardy #2 of the Baltimore Orioles is surrounded by teammates as the grounds crew works on the field during a brief rain delay in a game against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium on September 6, 2011.

Yes, that's right, the Yankees are now using the weather to serve their sinister means.  The goal this time isn't furthering their championship aspirations so much as sticking it to the Baltimore Orioles for having the gaul to inconvenience the mighty Yankees. - O's fall to Yanks in rain-drenched debacle
This, ladies and gentlemen, was one of the most ridiculous, ill-advised, bewildering baseball games ever played. And it ended, for the 86th time this year, in an Orioles loss. I guess some things never change.

Matusz out of rotation plans, will be in ‘pen | Britt's Bird Watch
"Struggling Orioles’ lefty Brian Matusz will continue to work out of the bullpen for the foreseeable future, a decision reached after Matusz met with manager Buck Showalter and pitching coach Rick Adair behind closed doors this afternoon."

"We are going to take it day by day of course. We haven’t ruled out anything. We’re just going to keep pitching. I’m going to keep working on my bullpens with Rick, when we feel like we’re ready to possibly get me in a game we’ll do that." (reax?)

Streenstra described Bundy as a "power pitcher" with five effective pitches, including a fastball that consistently reaches 94-95 miles per hour. Bundy also throws a sinker, which Streenstra says "he uses effectively to get ground ball outs," as well as a change-up, a curveball and a cutter.

Ex-pitcher Adam Loewen makes it back to majors as outfielder | HardballTalk
"Former Orioles first-round pick Adam Loewen is back in the majors three years and a couple of months after giving up on pitching due to a series of arm problems.  The Blue Jays called him up and will use him as a reserve outfielder for the rest of the season." I still want him plunked the first time he faces an O's pitcher. -duck

Lessons from Brewers and Diamondbacks, latest turnaround teams - Tom Verducci -
"How did Milwaukee and Arizona do it? It wasn't by spending great gobs of money. Both teams actually cut their payroll this year. What they have in common are shrewd trades that addressed core needs (starting pitching in Milwaukee; bullpen and cutting down on strikeouts in the lineup in Arizona) and the addition of high-character role players. GMs Doug Melvin in Milwaukee and Kevin Towers in Arizona were aggressive in adding players through trades and low-profile signings."
