Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters. Have you had a nice weekend so far? We are now 143 days from Opening Day, which for some reason is on a Thursday in 2018. So weird.

While we wait for the offseason to kick into full gear, I have scavenged the internet for some suitable links. I hope you enjoy them!

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! There is just one former Oriole with a birthday today, Javy Lopez. Javy was signed as part of the 2004 free agent extravaganza that included Rafael Palmeiro and Miguel Tejada. He had a good 2004 season but it was downhill from there.

On this day in 1958 the Orioles hired future Hall of Famer Lee MacPhail as the general manager. In 1976 Jim Palmer won his third Cy Young award. In 1997, manager Davey Johnson was named A.L. Manager of the Year and resigned the same day.
