Open Thread: Give it a go!

Stop by, say hi, argue logos, trade possibilities and anything else here. Save the really, really good stuff for FanShots. We'll try this today and see how it goes.

Some links for you to peruse while waiting for tonight's 7:05 game at Boston.....

• On the rumor front: Jeff Zrebiec discusses current trade scenarios in today's Baltimore Sun. Shocker: there's not much market for Melmo. The Chicago Tribune says the Cubs are the latest team to look at Sherrill. 

• Lots of reactions to the Orioles' deal to move spring training to Sarasota. The Charlotte Sun gives 10 reasons for Florida residents to jump on the Orioles train, while an angry old man sounds off in the Herald Tribune about the "second rate" team. Meanwhile, local officials are worried about the O's renaming Ed Smith stadium

• Tonight's opponents, the Boston Red Sox, have actually kind of sucked since the AS break. They are in a team-wide slump, detailed here in the Union Leader. 

• Check THIS out! The O's are having a cook-off event next Tuesday, July 28 at the ESPN Zone: Guthrie, ZAUN, and Roberts will go all Top Chef on each other, with a panel of judges (including their wives) to declare the winner, whose dish will be added to the ESPN Zone menu. Proceeds benefit the Maryland Food Bank.
