Found June 03, 2012 on Razzball:
At the beginning of last year, Brian Matusz was a popular sleeper and a candidate to evolve into the next Greg Maddux, mixed with a side of MacGyver and a Dragon from the future. Everyone loves sleepers, as you think you’re the only one who knows what’s up. The funny thing is, everyone thinks like that and also knows that you know. If they know what you know, you should also know that they know that you know. I think my computer just threw up on me. Well, if you drafted him last year, he sure slapped your face hard. Like the Serbian hooker I found last Tuesday, you walked around with a Matusz looking pink spot on half your face. In fact, I think you still have it. Maybe you want to go check that out with some kind of doctor. And don’t touch me, because that actually looks like a rash. No one had any real idea what happened.

Orioles pick power right-hander Gausman fourth overall

It was widely assumed that the Baltimore Orioles would select a college pitcher with the fourth selection of Monday's draft. That they did. Baltimore chose right-hander Kevin Gausman, a polished sophomore from LSU, after selecting star high school right-hander Dylan Bundy in 2011. "Kevin Gausman is one of the premier power pitchers in all of college baseball,"...

Orioles Acquire Steve Pearce from the Yankees organization; DFA Hall...

Yet another move was made by the Orioles on Saturday. They DFA'ed Bill Hall and got an older minor leaguer that seems to be doing decent in Triple-A this season, plus has some major league experience. Obviously, the Orioles need depth on the big league roster with the multitude of injuries, especially the loss of Nick Markakis (plus Nolan Reimold) ... and players who could prove...

Former Mets, Orioles General Manager Jim Duquette Donates Kidney to 10-Year-Old Daughter

After eight years of hospital trips and dozens of medications, 10-year-old Lindsey Duquette is having a life-changing operation on Monday.

Blue Rocks Win Series Against the Keys; Team is Now 2.5 Games Out of 1st Place

Returning home was the fix the Blue Rocks needed to get back to their winning ways, beating the Frederick Keys (Baltimore) 2 games Out of 3. Friday night's game was rained out so that set up a twilight doubleheader starting at 5:05pm Saturday.

Six Straight Losses and Counting for the Orioles...

When things have seemed particularly bad with the Birds this week, it has only gotten worse. I could not believe what I saw last night with the Orioles as they lost to the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-0, in a series matchup that is pretty much now a must-win. They are now out of first place, and the Rays are a game up on them in the divisional hunt. It is now six straight losses and counting...
