Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters! How have you been keeping yourself busy this weekend? Watch any good football? Did you get out and enjoy the unseasonably warm weather?

How many losses they’ll end up with?

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have three Orioles birthday buddies. Ryan Minor, who is best known for being the guy who replaced Cal Ripken, turns 46 years old today.
