Saturday Bird Droppings

Links for your Saturday, including one by Adam Jones.

We're in a rough stretch of games right now. I don't want to be cranky because of the Orioles, but that's where I find myself. I'm going to the game today with my family which includes my six-year-old nephew who is just gaga over the Orioles, and all I can hope is that they don't do anything to make the fans boo them. I don't want him to know what that is.
