O's finalize one-year deal with Atkins | News
"Garrett was one of the most productive hitters in all of baseball going into the 2009 season," said MacPhail. "We're very confident that we're going to be able to -- and he's going to be able to, more importantly -- get back to where he's been in the past. Most of you know I have a lot of confidence in [hitting coach] Terry Crowley, and Terry's always been a believer that if it's in there, he can get it out. We've already done some video work, so we're excited about the possibility of adding a big right-handed bat." (Yikes!) -zk

Andy MacPhail: "Also, as most of you know, we continue to pay particular attention as best we can to the makeup of the players we bring in. We're trying to be protective of the kids we're developing. We want to surround them not just with quality major league players, but quality people, and we're more than confident that Garrett meets that standard." -zk

Conversation with Rich Hill
Rich Hill is under the impression some team will sign him to a Major League deal and put him on their 40-man roster. And I'm under the impression that Rich Hill is delusional. -duck
