After a wacky day of front office shenanigans which thankfully excluded the Warehouse, the League can refocus its energy on the World Series. The Mets head home in an 0-2 hole.

The Orioles continue to maintain a low profile this Fall. Deeeeeeep in the weeds.

Orioles' Buck Showalter: 'We're Making Offers ... We'll Be Competitive' Buck doesn't quite go the "qualified major leaguer" route, but...yeah.

Former Catonsville pitcher Kolarek excited about opportunity with Orioles - Baltimore Sun Who knows? Maybe next September you could have a lineup with Steve Clevenger, Kolarek and fellow Catonsville kid Glynn Davis. Probably not...but maybe!

Steve Melewski: Prospect profile: Chris Lee made a nice first impression with the Orioles What does it mean to be a top ten prospect for the O's these days?

The Arizona Fall League: It’s For Pitchers, Too – The Hardball Times Well, everyone knows that the Arizona Fall League is a hitters league. What this article presupposes is...maybe it isn't?

On this day in 1986, the O's traded Storm Davis for Terry Kennedy and Mark Williamson. While Kennedy was the centerpiece of that trade, it was Williamson that ended up a fixture on Orioles rosters of the late 80s/early 90s.

It's the birthday of Luis Matos. The Puerto Rican outfielder had a couple decent seasons for the early aughts O's, but never quite broke out. Negro League Hall of Famer Leon Day would be 99 today. Day played most of his career for the Newark Eagles, but was born in Alexandria, VA and died in Baltimore.
