Wednesday Bird Droppings

Another day with no baseball. Things are getting desperate.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Camden Chatters. It's February now and baseball is inching closer and closer.  It needs to get here ASAP.

Here's the Orioles' likely 2016 lineup in anagram form -
On one hand, this seems like the dumbest thing ever written. On the other, it seems right up y'alls alley. John's a Nacho Pot!

There is an Oriole on this list!

School of Roch: Orioles sign Chris Dwyer to minor league deal
The Orioles signed a guy. He doesn't appear to be that good, but he's left handed so there is that.

More speculation on how the Orioles might fill out their rotation. If they sign Alfredo Simon I will cut someone. I probably don't want any of the guys on this list, actually. Maybe Cat Latos.

I don't necessarily disagree with anything in this article, but I also find it depressing with a more dire outlook on 2016 than I have.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! What you lack in quality of Orioles birthday buddies, you make up in quantity. Born on this day are former Orioles Harry Byrd (1925-1985), who made 14 starts for the Orioles in 1955; Jim Dyck (1922-1999), who appeared in 72 games from 1955-1956; Don Wenchel (59), whose entire big league career is comprised of 13 games pitched in relief for the Orioles in 1982-1983; Fred Lynn (64), who had three good seasons for the Orioles in the 1980s; and Scott Klingenbeck (45), who made six starts for the Orioles in 1994-1995 before being traded to the Twins for Scott Erickson.

On this day in 2005, the Orioles traded Jerry Hairston, Jr. to the Cubs for Sammy Sosa. That was weird.

Finally, here is a video you should watch:
