One staff ace unable to strike anyone out or make it through the fifth: ...$14 million One dynamo first baseman going 0-for-4 with a walk in his debut opposing his childhood team: ...$20 million One overrated shortstop skipping throws to first base: ...$20 million Spanking one of your arch rivals on Opening Day in the best ballpark in baseball: .................... Priceless.

When the AL and NL broke into divisions, the Orioles dominated the new AL East. In the first three years of division play (1969-71), Weaver's Orioles finished first three times, winning 109, 108, and 101 games. Baltimore went 9-0 in the first three AL Championship Series. They finished first five times in the first six years of the AL East. The advent of free agency hit Baltimore hard in the '70's, but the Orioles stayed aloft on the strength of their farm system. They won 88 or more games in every nonstrike season between 1968-83.

Orioles fans will once again enjoy the Oriole cartoon that became a Baltimore Sun icon in the 1960s and 1970s. The new cartoon will debut Tuesday, 4/7, after opening day and will be featured in the Baltimore Sun sports section and on baltimoresun.com. The cartoon features a caricature of the Orioles mascot reflecting the outcome of the previous day's game. The customized cartoon will run after every game during the 2009 season. This season’s cartoon will be drawn by cartoonist Mike Ricigliano - "Ricig" to readers.

Now THIS is embarrasing. The Pirates AAA squad (basically) got beaten by a community college. Ouch.

Driveline Mechanics Ranks the AL East Starting Pitchings Staffs by WAR

It's the last in a series I did covering all of the MLB projected starting pitching (including spot starters) using BP's playing time forecasts, FIP derived from an average of PECOTA, CHONE, and ZiPS projections, and some other stuff. The Orioles pitching, of course, isn't... looking so good at the moment, and Hayden Penn is out of the picture since he left after I wrote the article, but don't blame me, I just did the spreadsheet(s) and made the dumb jokes. Hey, at least they're cheap and the front office is on the rise (seriously)! I've irrationally liked Mark "Lurch" Hendrickson since his days as a Blue Jay...
