So, the Orioles lose to a good team on the road, Nolan Reimold's hurt again, and Jon Jones is still the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Yup, seems all's right with the world again.

"I want to help out wherever I can community service-wise, be it a church or helping little leaguers," he said.

Steve Melewski: ESPN analyst criticizes O's handling of Bundy
"Dylan Bundy should have started his professional career in Double-A," Law said. "That is a mistake by the Orioles, only being compounded by the fact that they are leaving him in Low-A, two levels lower than he should be and they are not stretching him out. He's going three innings, that is not a starter's workload. He should be turning over minor league lineups twice. They are really babying him. I think they have dug a hole for themselves because of where they chose to start him and how little they are using him." Not surprisingly, Steve Melewski disagrees.

Jamie Moyer credits his time with Orioles with helping turn his career around -
"That (1993) team was a very close-knit team and it made me feel very comfortable as a pitcher," he said. "The pitching staff was very close and we always seemed to be talking pitching, particularly me and Mike Mussina and Todd Frohwirth. It was just a team that I really enjoyed playing with and the fan support was tremendous. They (the fans) were great to us." Jamie Moyer last pitched for the Orioles in 1995.

Is it possible there will be no MLB-licensed game on XBox in 2013?
