Ok so there are no actual droppings this morning. Make it build your own droppings! Put any interesting baseball links in the comments. I have jury duty today which begins one hour before I normally go to work. I did not plan accordingly and now there's no time.

Don't forget to enter our contest! 108 people have entered so far. Contest ends on Sunday.

Jim Duquette, finding conspiracies everywhere: “He (Peter Angelos) has been shown two or three high-worth individuals that would like to buy into the club. Not for $2 billion for the Orioles, but, if Peter decides he wants to sell, Major League Baseball just showed him the keys to a couple individuals of high net worth that have the money that would want to buy. I don’t think it was a coincidence he (Peter Angelos) was on that board.”
