Saturday Bird Droppings

Waking up the best way a man can!

It's a beautiful but cold day here in Baltimore, and I'm hoping the weather decides to take a turn before the home opener in two weeks. We've had a lot of luck, weather-wise, with Opening Day the last few seasons, so we might be due for a chilly one. If so, it'll just remind me of the weather during the playoffs games.

The pre-season contest ended yesterday with 244 responses! That is a Camden Chat record. Stay tuned for a post next week-ish summarizing the picks and laughing at the person who picked "Buddy" as the first minor league call up.
