Monday Bird Droppings

J. Meric

So tired. Tired of waiting...

After a flurry of weekend activity, the O's appear set to open camp pretty much unchanged from the core Birds that we last saw in the American League Division Series. Oh, there are some changes at the margins, some improvements in team health, but these are largely the Birds we remember. I wonder who will this year's Jake Fox Award for Spring Hitting Excellence or Daniel Cabrera Award for Spring Pitching Excellence?

On this day in 1900, the Orioles sold John McGraw, Wilbert Robinson and Bill Keister to the Cardinals; on this day in 2009, Miguel Tejada was convicted of lying to Congress in connection with the 2005 hearing on steroids.

Birthday wishes to Brian "the Polish Pauper" Matusz and Matt "Big Swede" Lindstrom.
