Statues are the in-thing these days. Just about everybody of note had gotten, or is getting one.
Baltimore Orioles great, Cal Ripken, Jr., has been tabbed to be honored with his very own statue for sometime now and it was finally unveiled this evening at Camden Yards. Much deserved and long overdue.

I’m not one to usually read into something more than it actually is, or go into hyperbole; however, I’ll say this about the Baltimore Orioles: this team has grit, is going through one of those ‘magical seasons’, and may be one of destiny.
There’s no need to go through what happened last night if you’re a fan of this team. I went to Camden Yards last night with some...
Buck Is Hands Down the AL Manager Of The Year
There were rumors and questions around the sports world when Buck Showalter took the job in Baltimore. Why would he do that?
He had a good job at ESPN, which he had no reason to leave, especially for a team who had not been relevant past opening day since 1997.
If anything, he would have left to coach a team that was close if not...

It was a magical Thursday night at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
In a game that was the biggest September contest in the stadium since 1997 (until Friday’s game, of course - they only get bigger at this point), the Orioles jumped out to an early lead, withstood a furious late Yankee comeback, and took the first game of the crucial four...
Beat the Yankees? Sure, why not. And the Tampa Rays? Yep. Them to. The Baltimore Orioles aren't backing down, and could still win the division. And it's September, not April. We should all take notes. By we, I mean other teams whose executive management teams continues to mismanage their farm system and letting young prospects flee the burning barn.Just a glance over the...
BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles wasted a five-run lead late in Thursday's series opener against the Yankees, and these are the kind of games Baltimore has lost for many years. But this is a different year. Adam Jones hit a tie-breaking homer to start the eighth, and Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis homered later in the inning as the Orioles rallied for a 10-6 victory over...
Just a few weeks ago, the Yankees had an 8 game lead over the Orioles and I would say almost all of us would of assumed that the New York Yankees would be in control of the AL East yet another year and that no one should be worried, but has that now changed? Are The Baltimore Orioles the new sherrifs in town? It might be too early to say all of this, but if you look at the...
We’ve reached Threat Level Midnight. With last night’s victory over the Yankees, the Orioles are now tied with New York American League East lead. Whatever one makes of the Orioles’ chances, this is surprising for pretty much anyone who made a serious attempt at being objective prior to the season. When is the last time a team coming off of a sub-70-win season that got their...
BALTIMORE---Adam Jones hit a tie-breaking homer to start the eighth, and Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis homered later in the inning as the Baltimore Orioles rallied for a 10-6 victory over the Yankees on Thursday night to pull into a first-place tie in the American League East. The Jones homer off David Robertson (1-6) turned the game around. New York (77-60) had seemingly taken...
For more than 13 straight years, Cal Ripken Jr. proved his love of baseball each day. On Sept. 6, 1995, Ripken broke one of the most hallowed records in sports — Lou Gehrig’s consecutive game streak. The record-breaker was a 4-2 win over the Angels in which Ripken received a 22-minute standing ovation.
Here to riff on the topic I touched on is one of the best bloggers in D.C., J.P. of Japers’ Rink.
For the better part of this summer, it’s been eating at me.
And rather than fade away as it has in the past, it’s grown in intensity to a point at which it can no longer be neglected like the nine button on the microwave.
I need to reconcile my feelings about the Baltimore Orioles...
