Jake Arrieta started out the year doing pretty well, despite having a high ERA. He was throwing more strikes and missing more bats, which is always nice to see. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to stay healthy all year, as an elbow injury led to surgery and Arrieta missed the last two months of the season. It's possible that the bone spur in his throwing elbow had negative...
The Orioles just sent out this release announcing that former Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick will join MASN as a TV color analyst. He will work approximately 80 games this coming season.
Ok, I am a little late on this topic; however, as we all know, the organization took a look at Manny Ramirez last week during a workout in Florida.
We all know Ramirez’s sordid history in the game and his drug issues. He’s obviously not been an upstanding citizen in the game and frankly has bastardized his profession.

Juan Samuel wasn’t the best second baseman of the 1980s, but he was definitely among the most exciting.

The word from around the B&O Warehouse is that the Orioles aren’t done with their winter shopping. The club has made some significant moves, most notably making a run in the international market for starting pitching by acquiring Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada and Taiwanese pitcher Wei-Yin Chen. But executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette has made it...
Leave it to Luke Scott to take his act to a swing state during an election year.
Oh we kid, we kid. While it's easy to make jokes about baseball's most famous birther, it's also easy to see why Scott is heading back to his home state of Florida. The Tampa Bay Rays were looking for a designated hitter loaded with potential value and Scott had the type of crappy 2011...
The Rays have signed free agent Luke Scott, who spent the past four seasons with the Orioles, to a one-year deal with an option for 2013.
The Rays have reached an agreement with designated hitter/first baseman/left fielder Luke Scott on a one-year deal with a 2013 option, tweets Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.
