Wednesday Bird Droppings

O's slide grows to 12 games --
   "He canceled batting practice before today's game, told his players to report later than usual to Tropicana Field and encouraged them to use the time to "go do something nice, go have fun, take your wife, go see a movie. Come to the ballpark and we'll win tomorrow night." Let's see if that works. I have my doubts. - duck

It's not fair, but Trembley needs to go --
   "Dave Trembley reminds you of a guy in a knife fight and all he has to defend himself is a swizzle stick." That's Kevin Cowherd's logic. Really. - duck

Q&A with Bill Ripken on the 1989 Orioles -
   "It seemed like the planets were kind of aligning. The thing that stands out first and foremost is defensively we were better than any team we played against. We didn't make mistakes." I'm just gonna keep posting these, since it's better than any recent news about the team. -duck

N.A.B.O. Title Fight at Shorebirds' stadium - Delmarva Shorebirds
   Hometown hero Fernando Guerrero fights Ossie Duran on Oct. 10th in an outdoor boxing match in Salisbury. The civic center in Salisbury isn't allowed to sell beer, so the local promotor decided to give Arthur W. Perdue Stadium a try. Fernando (whom I coached against when he wrestled in high school) brings his 15-0 (13 KO) record back to the 'Bury to fight professionally for a fourth time. - duck

Orioles' Minor-Leaguer Charged With DUI In Florida - WBAL Baltimore
   "A minor league pitcher in the Baltimore Orioles' farm system was charged with driving while under the influence Sunday evening, according to Florida authorities. Ryan Ouellette, 23, was driving a 2002 black Ford truck that hit a guardrail, according to an arrest affidavit from the Martin County Sheriff's Office." Reporting the bad with the good. And as soon as we get any good news, I'll be sure to pass it along. -duck

Orioles notes: McCrory likely done for season, Pie unlikely to be back -
   "Reliever Bob McCrory returned to Baltimore and will have an arthrogram taken on his sore right shoulder today. He's probably done for the season." Jeff Z over at The Sun goes on to inform us, his dear readers, that Felix Pie most likely won't be back this season, or, as I like to call it, the next 5 days. -duck

Drainage! Drainage, Eli! Drained dry, you boy! If you have a Open Thread and I have a Open Thread and I have a straw and my straw reaches across the room and starts to drink your Open Thread. I drink your Open Thread! I drink it up!
