Wednesday Bird Droppings: Where Manny is the greatest and Adam Jones is back

In our links today we remember a historical brawl between the Orioles and Yankees, remind ourselves once again that Manny Machado is the best, and remember a little bit about the bad old days.

Happy Wednesday, Camden Chatters. The bad news is that the Orioles got destroyed last night thanks in large part to old friend Nelson Cruz. The good news is that thanks to a Red Sox loss, our guys remain in first place in the A.L. East. If you missed last night's game or want to re-live the nightmare, check out Ryan Pollack's recap.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have maybe the greatest Orioles birthday buddy of all time. Hall of Famer and all-around great man Brooks Robinson turns 79 today! Happy birthday to Mr. Robinson, he deserves only the best. It's also the birthday of Reggie Jackson, who spent one contentious season in Baltimore, and Luis Terrero, who played in 27 games for the 2006 Orioles.
