Some news! Clipped just for you. 

Rowell's big chance
Great, MORE crap about Billy Rowell.

Orioles make strides in signing international amateurs -- baltimoresun.com
It gets talked about a lot regarding an area of shortfall for the O's, but it appears as though Andy MacPhail is improving international scouting. 

Roch talks first base
Complete with corny jokes! 

Today's picture is from April 26, 2009, Brad Bergesen had one of his few poor outings on this day, giving up 5 ER on 3 HR in just 4 innings, but luckily the top of the order picked him up.  Brian Roberts, Adam Jones, and Nick Markakis reached base a combined total of 11 times with Roberts and Jones hitting home runs. . The Orioles won 8-5, the only win the O's would get in the series. They preferred to spend the other three days letting Ian Kinsler have his way with them.  Box Score - Game Thread - Recap
