Saturday Bird Droppings

Happy Saturday, y'all. I'm going to be at FanFest pretty much all day today and since Twittering is where it's at I'll be doing my best to send updates out that way. So if you don't follow us on twitter, here you go: @CamdenChat -Stacey

Remembering Curt Motton
Former Orioles Curt Motton passed away last night at the age of 65. He'd been battling stomach cancer for about a year. Our thoughts are with the Motton family. -Stacey

The happiest spring training invitee is Caleb Joseph
At least, he is according to Steve Melewski. Joseph spent time in AZ this winter working out with the the Brians (Matusz and Roberts). I like this kid. -Stacey

Baysox Ticket Prices Remain Frozen
For those of you still salty about the O's ticket price increase in 2010, the Baysox won't let you down. Lower reserved tickets remain $14 and upper reserved are just $11. -Stacey

Go to Orioles FanFest, win a free trip to Sarasota
If you'll be at FanFest today don't forget to enter your name for a free trip to Spring Training. -Stacey

2010 Fantasy outlooks: Baltimore Orioles
The 2010 O's from a fantasy perspective. His breakout candidate is Adam Jones, with Chris Tillman and Brian Matusz as sleepers. Admit it, you are all going to totally overdraft Matusz this year. -Stacey

Matt Wieters and Adam Jones make a commercial
Birdland Insider posted some pics of the commercial shoots done today by Matt Wieters and Adam Jones. I'm so glad they're going back to commercials with the players instead of those other lame things. I still miss the Honeybear. -Stacey

DETNEWS | Weblogs | Baseball: 30 in 30: Baltimore Orioles
Some guy in Detroit reviews the O's. Sure, why not? -zk

MacPhail on Bedard
The O's are interested in him but Bedard will wait until closer to spring training to sign with whatever team he ends up with. Get him, Andy! BUH DARD. -Stacey

Andy wants to wrap up the offseason next week
Considering he hasn't done anything in a million years, that'd be nice. -Stacey

Oakland As prospect leaving baseball for priesthood
Grant Desme, ranked last year by Baseball America as the #8 prospect in baseball, is retiring to become a priest. I mean, wow. An excellent comment about it by Kevin Goldstein: Well, somebody's church softball team is gonna to get WAY WAY better soon. -Stacey

Well beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today 
We're born again, there's new grass on the field 
A-rounding third and heading for home, it's a brown eyed Open Thread
Anyone can understand the way I feel
