Baltimore Sun Orioles notebook: Trembley calls on batters to be patient -
"I do think there is something to be said for working the count a little better. Taking some pitches," said Trembley, who said he crunched some offensive statistics on Monday's off day. OMFG. It took you until June to figure this out? And you had to "crunch offensive stats" before you could see it was necessary? Jeez Louise! Tune in next week, when Dave discovers that it actually doesn't make sense to have wild pitchers give up IBBs to load the bases. -zk

Diamond Dave thinks Nolan Reimold is not performing to his abilities. I certainly hope this isn't his level of ability. -duck

IN THE MINORSNorfolk won 5-3 loss as Armando Gabino got the win, working the fifth, sixth and seventh innings for Norfolk, Bowie won 6-5 as Chorye Spoon wasn't great (5.0 IP, 4 R, 2 ER), but picked up his first win in five starts, Frederick won 4-1 as Billy Rowell went 2-for-3 with a walk and the bullpen pitched four scoreless innings, and  Delmarva had the night off but is auctioning off an autographed Matt Wieters bobblehead. He never played there. -duck
