Go Ravens!
Go Ravens!
Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

I think I've finally come to terms with nothing happening this off season. I was just so excited to see what would happen in the first off season following the playoffs since forever, but now I'm like, OK, this is the team. Let's just go.

We have 31 days until pitchers and catchers report and 78 days until Opening Day. In the meantime, there is an important football game being played this afternoon in Denver, so go Ravens!

Just don't let him hit against lefties! Or play the field, obviously. Jeff Long has the skinny.

Happy birthday to former Orioles Chris Ray, Tim Hulett, Juan Bonilla, and Paul Gilliford (he appeared in two games in his career, both with the Orioles in 1967. That's two more than you). And happy birthday to current Oriole and resident bullpen goofball Luis Ayala!

On this day in 1991 the Orioles traded one of my childhood favorites, Mickey Tettleton, to the Detroit Tigers.
