Friday Bird Droppings

Who needs TV when I got T Rex?

Everything seems better after a walk off win, huh?

The O's begin their first interleague series of the year tonight as they welcome the Dodgers to Camden Yards. Tomorrow's game will be preceded by a tribute to Earl Weaver starting at 6:00 PM.

The Juice: Matt Wieters creates walk-off magic in Baltimore; Dickey gets sore victory | Big League Stew - Yahoo! Sports A little love...first walk off granny since Harold Baines did it against the White Sox in 1999.

Steve Melewski: Postgame comments from Pearce, Gonzalez and Machado A rough night for El Modesto, but he hung in there and the offense picked up the slack.

Showalter won't adjust rotation due to short starts | CSN Baltimore Stay the course. A thousand points of light.

Rex Ryan rips Orioles for not moving game to accommodate Ravens - Rex Ryan really does have a knack for putting his (or, anyone's, really...) foot in his mouth. What a creep.

Dayn Perry and Jon Shepherd both wrote about the futility of Orioles DHs yesterday. Yesterday's contribution from Team Steve notwithstanding, I think it's safe to say that this is still a thing.

Also, there was a lot of divisional injury news yesterday, David Ortiz appears close to return, Derek Jeter does not and R.A. Dickey may be an area of concern.

Apparently, April 19 is a day for Orioles blowouts. In 1996, the Orioles lost to the Rangers 26-7. Jesse Orosco was charged with 8 earned runs in .1 innings and Manny Alexander closed the game out; in 2006, the Birds beat up on the Tribe 18-9 and in 2011, the O's shut out the Twins 11-0.

It's the birthday of Scott Kamieniecki, Willis Otanez and George Sherrill aka The Brim Reaper aka Flat Breezy.
