When I did my Google News search to find you clippings, there was one result from the Baltimore Sun titled, "Can Chris Davis not live on $150M?" I clicked it with my eyes ready to roll, but I got the old "This page cannot be found." Whatever that used to be, maybe smarter heads prevailed in the wake of that horrible Dan Rodricks column.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! It's my pleasure to tell you that your one and only Orioles birthday buddy is Mr. Garrett Atkins.

On this day in 1993 the Orioles signed Rafael Palmeiro for the first time. In 1997 they signed Joe Carter, and I had totally forgotten that he was ever an Oriole. And in 2007 they traded Miguel Tejada to the Astros for Luke Scott, Troy Patton, Matt Albers, Dennis Sarfate, and Michael Costanzo.
