Monday Bird Droppings

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

After finishing up their series against the Astros on a down note, the Orioles get right back into it against the Tigers tonight who, for what it's worth, just a lost a series against the Twins. For followers of the Baby Birds, take note that Hunter Harvey takes his turn in the rotation for the Delmarva Shorebirds today.

Otherwise, winter sports playoffs talk? NFL Draft thoughts? Mad Men chatter?
