Saturday Bird Droppings

Jason Miller

Today is FanFest! Who will be there?

Welcome to February! It's the month of Spring Training, Valentine's Day, and my birthday!

2014 Baltimore Orioles Fanfest Guide | Baltimore Sports Report
If you're going to FanFest today, here is everything you need to know.

Prospect Watch: Hector Veloz | Orioles Nation
Get to know third base prospect Hector Veloz.

AJ Burnett: I'll Pass | Orioles Uncensored
Amid all of the Burnett wishing, here is one guy who isn't interested.

Ranking the AL East Position by Position: Catcher | BoSox Injection
This Red Sox blog ranks Matt Wieters as the second best catcher in the A.L. East behind Brian McCann. I think that's fair. I totally forgot until I read this that the Red Sox signed A.J. Pierzynski.

Cubs To Sign Jason Hammel | MLBTradeRumors.com
The former Oriole signed a one-year, $6 million deal. I didn't love Hammel last year, but that's a pretty good contract.

Schoop to miss Fanfest; Chen takes his place at one autograph session - baltimoresun.com
If you were hoping to see Jonathan Schoop at FanFest, his passport expired. Oops. He better get that taken care of before Spring Training starts.

Adam Jones to assist Manny Machado on the fly - baltimoresun.com
Adam Jones is just flying around in private jets, so he stopped to pick up Manny on the way. Manny isn't rich enough for private jets yet.

Today is the birthday of former Orioles Paul Blair, Kent Mercker, Rich Becker, and Joe Mahoney.

On this day in 2010, Jon Miller won the Ford Frick Award, the best award you can get as a baseball broadcaster.

This open thread is so full of people it makes me sick. When I grow up and get married, I'm living alone. Did you hear me?
