Saturday night Orioles

Fresh off a hard-fought 4-3 victory over the Tigers yesterday, the Orioles will look to make it two in a row with another win tonight. Detroit took the series opener on Thursday by a score of 6-2. The Birds will have to do a better job against future Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera, who’s gone 5-for-6 with two home runs in the past two games.

Phew! For a minute it looked like Cousins wouldn't have a viable group protecting him on the left side of the offensive line. Minnesota sought not only prospects to fit its zone-blocking scheme but also found more size. First-rounder Christian Darrisaw is now responsible for Cousins' blindside, and the Vikings can be confident that the rookie left tackle will fare well after allowing just three pressures and one sack on 264 pass blocks last season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. But perhaps the biggest benefit will be the expected improvement of the Vikings' interior pass protection thanks to the drafting of guard Wyatt Davis in the third round. -- Courtney Cronin

Adam LaMarque Jones

I want Adam Jones to finish his playing career in Baltimore. I don’t even care if his production falls off at some point during it. Rationality and business be damned. I just love the guy. The man and the ballplayer. Cheers AJ.
