It's been over a week since the Orioles season ended, and yet we press on.

Hello, Camden Chatters. There is not much going on, Orioles-wise, these days. I have scoured the internet for links for you and this is what I found. There is new content going up every day on this site, though, so if you missed it yesterday, check out Alex Conway's thoughts on re-signing Mark Trumbo and Mark Brown's breakdown of the payroll in light of the arbitration numbers that were predicted.

There is no baseball at all today as the ALDS has wrapped up and the Cubs scored four runs in the ninth last night to eliminate the Giants from their NLDS series. Meanwhile the Dodgers and Nationals are flying back to DC for game five of their series tomorrow.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have three Orioles birthday buddies who were on this year's team! Nolan Reimold, Francisco Pena, and Paul Janish are all celebrating today. It's also the birthday of Leslie Brea, who was a pitcher who had 8 unmemorable games for the Orioles from 2000-01; Sid Fernandez, who is best known as a Met but who spent 1995-95 with the O's; and Ray Murray, the backup catcher for the inaugural 1954 Orioles.
