General Manager meetings begin today in Boca Raton. While not quite as action packed as the ballyhooed Winter Meetings that will take place next month, deals do get done and foundations for future deals are laid. Maybe. If you get MLB Network with your cable/satellite package, the MLB Player's Choice Awards ceremony is tonight. Adam Jones is the only Oriole nominated for an award (Marvin Miller Man of the Year) and as far as I can tell, Eric Davis (Comeback Player of the Year, 1998) is the only Oriole to have ever won one of these awards. I'll also mention that the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game was played this weekend. Donnie Hart was the only Baby Bird to see game action and he struck out the only batter he faced. Alright, Donnie! Way to go!

It's the birthday of Hall of Fame manager Whitey Herzog. The Illinois native spent five years in Baltimore and Washington before hanging it up and achieving prominence as manager of the great St. Louis squads of the 1980s. Minor leaguer Rachid Engelhardt celebrates a birthday today as does former O Brett Jacobson, who you might recall as a part of the Orioles contingent sent North in the J.J. Hardy trade.
