It's Wednesday, November 9th, Camden Chatters. We're all still here, and if the baseball gods are kind they will give us something to talk about today. Who am I kidding? We know that the baseball gods are not kind.
You may have heard that the Orioles are interested in signing Ian Desmond. What do you think of that? It's also been bandied about that they want to re-sign Mark Trumbo as well. Any thoughts on that, or any other Orioles-related thoughts? Why not put together a FanPost that details what you would do for the O's this winter?
How about a few links to get your day going?

You know who was a good baseball player? Mr. Frank Robinson. Enjoy his great baseball history in this story.
Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have two Orioles birthday buddies. Hall of Famer Whitey Herzog spent two seasons with the Orioles from 1961-62, and relief pitcher Al Severinsen pitched in 12 games for the 1969 O's.
That's it from me. Please be good to each other today.
Message from site manager Mark:
In the ordinary course of affairs, the Bird Droppings comments are where people come and talk about whatever's on their mind. That's a point of pride for me about Camden Chat. However, periodically there are times where I just think it's for the best if we don't talk about something today. Emotions are far too raw to even pretend to have any kind of productive conversation or dialogue. After yesterday's election, it's clear to me that today needs to be one of those days.
No politics in Bird Droppings today. Please don't test my resolve about this.
