Saturday Bird Droppings: Where all Halloween candy is now 75% off

Is it springtime yet? No... it's not. Sad.

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

Hello, friends. There are a scant 155 days to go until Opening Day 2015 arrives for the Orioles. The good news is that every day brings it a little bit closer. The bad news is that, on days where there's actually news, the news will probably be something along the lines of the O's claiming Pat McCoy off waivers from the Tigers. Who? Exactly.

If you didn't see it yesterday, please do us a solid and nominate your choice for Funniest Orioles Moment of the Year. A poll will be forthcoming on Monday.

Here's a sampling of what's being talked about around Birdland as November begins:

How Likely Are The Orioles' 2014 Free Agents To Stay In Baltimore? (Press Box)

Beat writer Brittany Ghiroli breaks down where the team stands as the offseason begins. "With Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy expected to be in play for next year's rotation, the Orioles could move some starting pitching to swing a big deal."

That's what we're hoping for too, Rich Dubroff. One tidbit: Last year, Machado rehabbed in Miami. This year, he'll be rehabbing at the team facility in Sarasota.

Elsewhere around SB Nation MLB, because he's such a fascinating subject of discussion for regular Camden Chat commenters...

You know, I heard he signed with the Nationals a while back.

Today is the birthday of former Orioles Fernando Valenzuela (1993) and Team Steve stalwart Steve Tolleson (2012). It is also the birthday of Jonathan Schoop's personal punching bag, Masahiro Tanaka.

And that's the way it is in Birdland on November 1. Have a safe Saturday.
