Steve Melewski: Wieters and Arrieta postgame comments after the Orioles' win over Tampa Bay
Whoever it is that keeps harping on the theme of 'Arrieta has a major league arm but a minor league head' or however that nonsense goes, just stop. The guy is very cerebral. Perhaps too much so, given the quality of his 'stuff'.

Assigned Pick Values For Top 10 Rounds -

A complete listing of the assigned pick values for each selection in the first 10 rounds of the 2013 draft.

Today is the birthday of former 3Bman, Craig Worthington. On this date 20 years ago, the O's had an epic TOOTBLAN where 3 runners found themselves simultaneously occupying 3rd base. Mike Devereaux hit a pop up into the outfield that was trapped by the CFer. After going halfway down the 3rd base line, Jeff Tackett returned to 3rd base where Brady Anderson had advanced to from 2B. Chito Martinez, oblivious to what is going on in front of him, then rounds 2nd and runs into Tackett and Brady. Tackett and Martinez are ruled out and the inning ends on a rather unique double play.
