Thursday Bird Droppings

The dreaded Huntusz monster strikes again. And there was no joy in Birdland. But there were links and news!

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Either my wife or I stirred briefly around 12:30, and I reflexively checked my phone. "2-1 in the eighth!" I thought.  "They got this!"  My bleary-eyed self didn't even look at who was pitching.  Sigh.  On to the news...

Camden Depot: Would you pay more for tickets if the Orioles paid more for players?

Well... would you?

School of Roch: Teams still coveting Orioles' young pitching, looking at tonight's matchup

Mr. Kubatko says that everyone wants our pitching prospects.  Stay strong, Mr. Duquette. Ubaldo pleased with bullpen session

I dunno, Ubaldo, that ankle still looks a little balky to me.  Update on Manny Machado's back further down that page, too.

Orange Country Register: Orioles' Tillman right at home in Anaheim

Between Chris Tillman and Adam Jones, the Orioles seem to be able to gin up pretty good numbers of road fans on the west coast.

Fansided: Tony Sipp trade rumors: Braves, Angels, Orioles interested

Sipp wouldn't be the worst pickup for a stretch run, if he didn't cost too much.  The market for middle relievers has been relatively soft so far.

A little birdy told me that it's the birthday of Camden Chat's own Bill Duck, because those birdies have to stick together.  Happy birthday, Duck!
