Saturday Bird Droppings: Where all gifts may only be exchanged for store credit

The Orioles did not get you anything for Christmas, unless you count the Delmon Young signing.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Hello, friends.

There are now 100 days until Orioles Opening Day 2015. A lot of things can happen in 100 days, although the Orioles probably won't be involved in many of those things. For one thing, it's not really their style to make an offseason splash, and for two, who's left out there for them to splash by signing anyway? Max Scherzer isn't walking through that door. Whoever else is out there isn't walking through that door either.

If you believe the weird rumblings, there might even still be a chance that Dan Duquette walks out that door into the great white north.

It's hard out there for a news linker right now. You've probably noticed there's nothing noteworthy going on. Here are some links for your Saturday, which at least have a tiny bit to do with baseball...

There are no living former Orioles players with a birthday today.

And that's the way it is in Birdland on December 27 - or at least unless something happens later. Have a safe Saturday.
