Tuesday Bird Droppings

Thunderstruck - USA TODAY Sports

It may be the morning after an off-day, but links abound!

3 A.L. East teams played on a short schedule Monday yesterday. And each cruised to rather easy victories. So the Rays, Yankees, and Blue Jays each gain a notch in the win column and once again each team in the A.L. East is now .500 or better. But enough about the pretenders. Let's talk of an actual contender, the Orioles. And, specifically, of one member of the O's who is receiving quite the crush of media attention of late. Part Human, Part Asgardian God, he is a gargantuan though mild-mannered man by day. But at night he transforms into the God of Thunder incarnate: Thor. And he uses his mighty hammer to strike blows against the enemies of Birdland.

Steve Melewski: Minor league notes on Ohlman's hot bat and Drake's good start for Bowie (draft pick signing)

SteveO gives some love to to the in-the-zone Michael Ohlman. This was written prior to Ohlman having a 4-4 day last night, w/ a double, a home run, and a walk. Ho hum...

On this date in 1975, Don Baylor hit Home Runs in his first 3 at bats of the game. This gives him 4 consecutive homers going back to his last game.
