Saturday Bird Droppings

Mitch Stringer-US PRESSWIRE

News and notes from around the internet.

It's a somber morning in Birdland as one of our all-time favorites, Earl Weaver, has passed away. I put a short piece up on the front page about him and I, like many of you I'm sure, am feeling a little blue.

For those of you going to FanFest today, have fun! Perhaps I'll see you. And for everyone who wants to know about the FanFest goings on today, please be sure to check in with Mark Brown on Twitter at @EatMoreEsskay and me on Twitter @CamdenChat. Mark will be our man on the inside, talking to players and hopefully getting all sorts of good information that you can't find anywhere else. I'll be on the fan side of things, tweeting pictures and interesting tidbits from the FanFest floor (although I'll be getting there a little later than planned).
