The non-waiver deadline approaches this afternoon as Troy Tulowitzki, David Price and Dustin Ackley have moved East. Will the O's make a move? Should they? I imagine the debate will continue up until 4:00 pm and probably until the end of the season. And probably until next season. Anyhow, the O's continuing aversion to long winning streaks was on full display in last night's extended jam loss to the Tigers...but, yeah, no Price on Sunday, so there's that.

"The Orioles battled back from 7-0 and 9-2 deficits tonight to bring the potential winning run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth..." If I'd have known Miguel Gonzalez was so generous, I would have invited him to my wedding.

Jared Breen, who you may recall from a recent incident in which he hurt his knee, eye socket in addition to being concussed by a wall got popped for PEDs. Nick Cunningham (no relation to Richie) also got nabbed. Hang down your head, Delmarva.

On this day in 1971, Pat Dobson extended his win streak to 12 games with a 4-0 shutout of the Royals. Steve Stone's 14 game win streak was snapped on this day in 1980. Don't cry for Stone, though...he ended up winning the Cy Young. Eddie Murray hit career homers 299 and 300 on this day in the homerriffic year of 1987.

If you know who Mike Figga, Earl Stephenson and Joe Durham are, give yourself a pat on the back. You may also wish them a happy birthday and tell them I want my two dollars.
