Thursday Bird Droppings

Links! Delicious links!

Good morning! I apologize for the lateness of the droppings today, but it's day one of my vacation and waking up super early just wasn't on the agenda. Starting today I'll be out of pocket for over a week, but the blog will go on! Don't you worry about that. Anyway, links.

I had to clip this because it's the most ridiculous title ever. Of course there are nine Orioles on the ballot. There are nine players of every team on the ballot.

Happy birthday, Robert Andino!
