Tuesday Bird Droppings

Congratulations to zknower's alter ego buddy Jeff for winning this week of Pick 'Em! We continue our trend of having a different winner every week, which is pretty cool. I've moved within one point of first place thanks to those Ravens, so hopefully next week I will be able to be able to inform you all that I've taken the lead. 

The Mobbies ends on Thursday, and there are black arrows all over the place next to Camden Chat. Please feed my ego and vote for us in in the Orioles category and in the Best Overall category. We're down to sixth in Best Overall, which just will not do! 

If you want to read any Baltimore Sun stories you're on your own as I'm out of page views. I wonder how that's working out for them? 

Duquette will meet the press Tuesday | School of Roch
Dan Duquette will be introduced today at 11 a.m. You can watch it on or on MASN. Also, why can't the Orioles just call their man in charge a GM like everyone else?

Dan Duquette deserves this new chance as Orioles GM | The Boston Globe
"I’m confident I made mistakes with the Red Sox," Duquette said at the time. "I made a personal inventory of what those mistakes were and how I could have made different choices. .... Are there things I would have done differently? Sure. There’s a bunch of ‘em. But that’s water under the bridge at this point." -zk

Britt makes some good points on pros and cons of hiring Duquette, but then she loses points for saying that she gives the Orioles credit for this risky hire.
