Monday Bird Droppings

Greg Fiume

The playoffs roll on with a full slate of games today. For my money, the A's/Tigers series has been the most enjoyable so far. You have to feel for Braves fans, as Freddy Garcia is tasked with keeping the high octane Dodger offense at bay and staving off elimination. I don't even know that Chavez Ravine can save him.

Not a whole lot cooking in Birdland.

Steve Melewski: The wins were down, but the attendance was up in 2013 "The Orioles' attendance was up 12.1 percent in 2013 as the club drew a total of 2,357,101 fans over 81 dates..." Competitive baseball: it's FANtastic!

Camden Depot: Gem of the Offseason: Masahiro Tanaka? One could argue that the Duquette regime has improved the team's international profile, the whole Korea debacle notwithstanding, but the Duq still lacks a marquee international signing.

Is Hardy's pending future with the O's still tied to Machado? | Baltimore Sports and Life Where it once seemed almost inevitable that Hardy would be traded, could an extension be in the works?

Orioles need to improve developing young pitchers, Dan Duquette says - SBNation.com Yes. Please.

On this day in 2012, playing in their first divisional playoff playoff game since 1997, the Orioles lost 7-2. They took a 2-2 game into the top of the ninth, when Russell Martin's leadoff home run off of Jim Johnson sparked a five run rally.
