Hello Camden Chatters. Today we get to face the day with the Orioles on a three-game winning streak, their first since May 31st - June 2nd. It’ll be tough to get a fourth win in a row with Wade Miley facing Marcus Stroman, but maybe these Orioles can do it! I am feeling optimistic after three wins. Silly, I know.

If you haven’t yet, definitely check in on the lovely totals with Randy DeCleene’s game recap.

I don't agree with this, but it's worth thinking about. If the Orioles can extend Manny, who I believe is going to get his act together, they should.

It feels weird to be linking you to a press release from the Peruvian Avocado Commission, but here I am. On Saturday you can get free avocado on your hot dog if you choose. I would not choose, but to each his own.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have just one Orioles birthday buddy, but it’s a good one. Mr. Don Baylor, who spent the first six years of his 19 year career with the Orioles, turns 68 years old today.

It was on this day in 1957 that Ray Moore pitched a shutout for the Orioles, the fourth consecutive shutout for the team, an American League record.

Happy hump day!
