Saturday Bird Droppings

Dem franchize boyz. - Thearon W. Henderson

The Orioles seem to have lulled the national media into a deep sleep. The Royals and Braves are the flavors du jour, Chris Davis and Manny Machado are old hat...excellent. Even the beats seem to be playing possum this morning. Guess the O's will just have to keep winning. Remember: 4 PM start today.

Duquette stays mum on possible reunion with Reynolds | orioles.com: News Britt does the heavy lifting today.

School of Roch: Wada improvement Commence the Wada boomlet.

EL notes: O's Wright makes his mark | MiLB.com News | The Official Site of Minor League Baseball At Around the Minors, we are fond of young Dennis Michael Wright. Are you familiar? Get to know him!

Today seems to be loaded with historical feats and landmarks. One wonders what this afternoon brings. In 1963, Brooks Robinson was benched, ending his streak of 463 starts; in 1969, Mike Cuellar's no hit bid was broken up by Cesar Tovar, also snapping a streak of 35 consecutive batters retired; in 1976, Jim Palmer one hit the Twins; in 1979 Disco Dan Ford hit for the cycle; in 1996, Eddie Murray hit his 18th career grand slam to tie Willie McCovey for second on the all time list.

It's the birthday of cross-franchise cult hero Sal Fasano.
