If today is your birthday, you share it with the Highlander, Nate McLouth. Bob Melvin was a decent catcher for the O's, but has made his mark as a two time Manager of the Year, including 2012 where he beat out Buck Showalter for the honor. He also has a birthday today as does longtime reliever and Rick Dempsey partner in crime Sammy Stewart. Juan Guzman was a decent pitcher, just not for the O's. The front office, however, was able to turn him into B.J. Ryan. Quite a trick.He turns 50 today and Scouting Director Gary Rajsich turns 62.
