Britt's Bird Watch: Does Scott to the DL push up Pie?
"Pie said he planned on going to the field in Bowie Thursday afternoon to work out, but closed our conversation with 'I think I might see you tomorrow.' " Adorable! -zk

Pie isn't ready to rejoin O's in Boston | News
My sister! My daughter! Writing in a different place, Britt says Pie is definitely NOT coming up yet. "Both the Orioles and Felix Pie were optimistic that the energetic outfielder could rejoin the team in Boston, however, that isn't going to happen." -zk

Orioles Insider: Pie gets call, will be ready to go if Scott lands on DL
It's just...I want Felix back as you all know, but they just told us they want to give him a few more days. Can Jake Fox really not be the backup OF for three days if they think Felix might need some time? Am I overreacting? I'm just trying to look out for his well being! -Stacey (and another quarter heard from -zk)

Scorey is being the good soldier, which is a nice thing to see given some of the 4th outfielders we've had in the past. *cough* Jay Payton *cough* -zk

Bedard could return to Mariners on Tuesday - MLB-
Former Oriole Érik BUH DARD will make what could be his final rehab start Thursday for Triple-A Tacoma before possibly returning to the Mariners rotation next Tuesday. He has been dominant in his first two rehab starts, allowing two runs and striking out 11 batters in 6-2/3 innings, while walking none. Looks like the Mariners' gamble may pay off. -zk

Bobby Valentine seems as confused as you are – Sun-Sentinel
You knew that, eventually, Bobby Valentine would speak. And he has on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight. "If this is a major-league process, I hope I’m never in the process again," Valentine said. "It’s very disturbing, confusing and it was insulting at times, but it’s over." Awwww, poor Bobby Valentine. Awwwww. -zk
