Things are mostly quiet in Birdland. The World Series, as I'm sure you've heard, is lousy with ex-Orioles, mostly on the Cubs and you may be familiar with this Miller chap on the Indians.There are 161 days until Opening Day. I can't stand it,

Not a whole lot here, but, yeah...for your consideration. One more thing on the front office's plate.

Yovani Gallardo on hitting. I know...

Jackie Robinson passed away on this day in 1972. He was 53 years old. Eddie Murray drove in the winning run as the Indians picked up their first World Series win on this day in 1995. Dustin Pedroia became the first person to lead off a World Series game with a homer for the first time since Don Buford did it in 1969 on this day in 2007.

it's the birthday of Dave "Father of Steve" Johnson. In addition to the current work he does for the Orioles Radio Network, Johnson made 57 starts for the O's, including 14 for the "Why Not?" team of 1989. Arthur Lee Rhodes celebrates a birthday today, as well. Rhodes was a mediocre starter, that converted to the bullpen and went on to pitch in 238 games for the O's over 9 years...then became REALLY effective and pitched in 311 more for the Mariners and 900, all told.
