Boston will always have New York to tangle with, but in case that rivalry gets musty, there are some plucky birds in Baltimore that have been playing for more attention. The Patriots lost in the latest battle of a slowly developing grudge match with the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, and another Baltimore ballplayer was on hand to remind Boston fans that the Patriots aren’t the only local team that has had trouble with Edgar Allen Poe‘s other city recently. Adam Jones, whose Orioles went to the playoffs last year and have made the American League East a much tougher division, showed up to cheer on the Ravens at Gillette Stadium. With the Ravens and Patriots sure to be battling in the AFC for years to come and the Orioles on the upswing as the Red Sox look to get back into contention, Baltimore-Boston could be a fun little rivalry to start looking forward to. Until then, check out Jones and his end zone buddies at the game. Where is @SimplyAJ10 ? You guessed it! Go @R...

Weaver made his presence known quickly in the major leagues after becoming the manager of the Baltimore Orioles in 1968, just a few months after he started with the Orioles organization. The...

Rest In Peace Earl Weaver

Earl Weaver was among the most winning managers in Major League Baseball. Fans loved him. His players…didn’t. He was Lou Piniella before Lou Piniella. In 17 years at the helm of the Baltimore Orioles, something unheard of for a manager these days, his teams won 1,480 games. They won four American League championships and the 1970 World Series. Sadly, Mr. Weaver died Jan. 18...

Earl Weaver Passes Away

Yesterday was a sad day for not Oriole fans, but all who follow the sport of baseball. Former Baltimore manager Earl Weaver passed away on Friday night while on a cruise for the team. He was 82. I learned about the news right before FanFest and it was surreal to have heard. You never think someone like Weaver, who embodies the spirit of Baltimore sports, would seemingly live...
