Monday Bird Droppings: Where there's two weeks to Opening Day

You might be worried about the Orioles rotation, but Kevin Gausman isn't giving more reason to worry. In today's links, the strange case of Brady Anderson, Craig Gentry fights for a spot, and the bullpen should still be OK.

I don't know if people will remember this year's World Baseball Classic, but Manny Machado and Adam Jones have each provided plenty of moments O's fans can be proud of. The Domininican Republic did not make it to the semifinals, thus depriving us of the Manny v. Schoop final, but the Team USA and the Netherlands are in their respective bracket's semifinal.

At Ed Smith Stadium yesterday Kevin Gausman was dominant (8 Ks in 5 IP) and remains on track for the Opening Day start.

Bullpens can be a very volatile thing, but these guys are cool.

On this day in 1995, the O's cancelled the remainder of their exhibition schedule instead of using replacement players.

It's the birthday of Chris Hoiles, by some accounts, the best catcher in Orioles history. Mike Young and Paul Mirabella also celebrate birthdays.
