Alas, cars at OPaCY are safe... Joey Gathright traded to BoSox
The Orioles have traded Joey Gathright from Triple-A Norfolk to Triple-A Pawtucket, the Boston Red Sox's top affiliate, for a PTBNL or cash. Gathright was batting .329 with 11 doubles, two triples, 20 RBIs and 24 stolen bases in 80 games at Norfolk. The Orioles acquired him from the Chicago Cubs on May 8 for Ryan Freel.

The Schmuck Stops Here: Orioles: Jones and the silver lining 
Adam Jones continues to rehab his sore back, which represents a significant loss of run-production potential, but might actually be a positive thing for the club on a couple of levels. The injury has forced manager Dave Trembley to play Felix Pie every day in center field, which -- even with his mistake-marred Tuesday night performance -- has given Pie a chance to demonstrate how much he has progressed since the start of the season.
