Recaps from last night's loss can be found at the Baltimore Sun, the Montreal Gazette, and And speaking of that, sorry about no recaps here lately. I'll get on that today. 

James Gammon, played Lou Brown in 'Major League,' dies at 70 - Big League Stew - MLB  - Yahoo! Sports
"The funniest, crankiest and perhaps most-beloved manager in the history of the Cleveland Indians has died. James Gammon, who played skipper Lou Brown in the film "Major League" and its first sequel, died in Costa Mesa, Calif. on Friday, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Also a resident of Ocala, Fla., Gammon was 70." -duck

Britt's Bird Watch: Os/Blue Jays lineups and pregame tidbits
"Luke Scott is expected to drive to Baltimore after playing in Sunday's Gulf Coast League game and will likely rejoin Roberts on rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie." Drive???? Because the team's too cheap to pay for a $285 Southwest flight from Tampa to Baltimore? That's a 17-hour drive on a bum leg! -duck

School of Roch - Orioles, Nationals, Ravens on
"Roberts will report to Double-A Bowie on Monday, as I've written, and he's scheduled to stay there all week. He could be activated next weekend, putting him ahead of schedule." So, my birthday may include Brian Roberts back in the lineup. Why, thank you, Baltimore Orioles. -duck
