Tuesday Bird Droppings

Flarht just wants to dance! - Darren McCollester

After splitting the series in Boston the O's travel to the Great White North to take on the upstart Blue Jays

18/162nds or 1/9th of the season is not complete for the Birds. And, all things considered, a .500 record ain't too shabby. Now let's see if the O's can do to Toronto what Toronto did to the O's a week and a half ago: take two out of three from them one their home field. After this the O's begin a long string of games (basically, all of May) against various Central division squads, both AL & NL. So gain that ground in the AL East while you can, lads.

I'm less worried about the 'pen and more concerned with the middle infield at the moment given Hardy's latest bout with the injury bug.

Orioles Buzz: Andrew Stetka: With Machado and Hardy down, can O's defense hold steady?

Considering the possibility of a left side of the infield sans both JJ & Manny does not inspire much in the way of confidence in my mind.

Christian Walker Named Eastern League Player of the Week: Orioles Nation

Congrats to him!

On this date in 1914, Charm City native George Herman 'Babe' Ruth plays his first pro game as a 19 year old for the International League Baltimore Orioles. Ruth would toss a complete game shutout and go 2-4 at the plate. Facing financial difficulties the owner of the Orioles would sell Ruth (along with two other players) to the American League's Boston Red Sox for $30,000.

It is the birthday of late 90's O's starter Jimmy Key.

So that was Mrs. Lundegaard on the floor in there. And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of Open Thread. There's more to life than a little Open Thread, you know. Don'tcha know that? And here ya are, and it's a beautiful day. Well. I just don't understand it.
