Wednesday Bird Droppings: A whole lotta nothing going on

I hope you weren't looking for Orioles news, because we don't have it.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Hello Camden Chatters. It appears that there are just no stories about the Orioles out there today. I searched high and low. Maybe it's because we're just five days from Christmas. Perhaps soon they'll make a big signing or trade! Until then, enjoy these meager links:

Wasdin expected to join Orioles minor league staff - School of Roch
John Wasdin, most recently the pitching staff for the A's double-A team, will be named as the minor league pitching coordinator to replace Rick Peterson.

Baltimore Orioles Shouldn't Even Be Thinking About Trading Machado | FOX Sports
People who write things have moved on from if the Orioles should trade Zach Britton and onto if they should trade Manny Machado. This article takes the opposite stance of Buster Olney's recent column.

Orioles showing interest in David Hernandez - Chris Cotillo
This isn't even a story! It's just a tweet. But it's literally the only thing that has been said about what the Orioles are interested in. I'll be honest with you, I didn't even know that David Hernandez was still playing baseball.

Nate Spears, 2003 Bowman Heritage Rainbow #260 - Orioles Card "O" the Day
If you haven't heard of the Card of the Day website, check it out! It's always entertaining, although the headline isn't completely accurate in that there is a new card every day. There used to be, but then Kevin grew up and got a wife and a kid.

And sadly that's all I have for you. I know, right?

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have plenty of Orioles birthday buddies, most of whom are better known for playing somewhere else. Taylor Teagarden, LaTroy Hawkins, Andy Van Slyke, and Elliot Maddox are all celebrating today. And a special happy birthday to former Oriole player and current Oriole pitching coach Roger McDowell.

It was on this day in 1995 that the Orioles signed Roberto Alomar to a three-year, $18 million contract. He was pretty good.

That's all, folks!
