Sunday Bird Droppings

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

All the Orioles news you need for a Sunday morning.

A big-leaguer now, but Ford also gets ring from Ducks - Connecticut Post
Lew Ford will get a championship ring from this season - from the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League, where Ford started this season.

Steve Melewski: What was your favorite memory of the 2012 season?
"As Buck Showalter would say, I'll be Captain Obvious here. What was your favorite memory or game from this Orioles' season?" A week seems a bit early for Steve Melewski to already run out of material, but he does offer some good choices.

School of Roch: Who's on second?
Brian Roberts is expected to be at Spring Training ready to go, Ryan Flaherty's destined for winter ball to get more reps, and Dan Duquette isn't ruling out Robert Andino. I guess OMAR COMING! back isn't in the cards. Sorry, I had to.

ELSEWHERE IN BASEBALL:

John Farrell named Red Sox manager - Sports - Boston.com
"John Farrell will become the 46th manager in team history after spending two seasons as manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. Compensation has yet to be announced, although a team source said that Mike Aviles will be going to Toronto with a player coming back to the Sox."
