Felix Pie Passes A Hall of Famer | Camden Crazies
Those of you who follow Daniel on Twitter might already be aware, but he's been tracking a crazy streak of Pie's, one that ended when he struck out Sunday. Leading up to that K, Felix put the ball in play 63 straight times (no Ks, no BBs). The former O's record for this zany stat was held by Brooks Robinson. I'll think of Daniel every time Felix Ks (hopefully not many) or walks (hopefully a lot) from now on. -Stacey

Orioles Insider: Jordan reacts to signing first-round pick Manny Machado
"We got a new player. It went like we thought. We had a really good read on the financial side of it, what it was going to take. Again, it played out till the end. We’re very happy. I’m not going to release the terms. They’ll be out there pretty soon, but it’s a good deal for the club and the player."

"We had most of the terms entered," Jordan said. "We put together the other parts of the contract beyond the signing bonus. There is language, there is school money, we had all of that figured out before hand. We just had to plug in the bonus and the payout schedule," Jordan said. Jordan added the O's will exceed last year's $8.7 million on last year's draft.
