Found April 11, 2012 on Holdout Sports:

During Tuesday night's YES network broadcast of the New York Yankees game against the Baltimore Orioles, they stumbled onto something interesting pertaining to Orioles second baseman Robert Andino. When comparing profile photos of Andino over the last three years, it's clear that the smile has gradually disappeared from Andino's face.


At least in 2011 he tried to force a smile, but this year, Andino didn't even try. Maybe some more winning by the Orioles would cheer him up.

Robert Andino’s face perfectly sums up what it’s like playing for the Orioles

I’m guessing next year’s picture will feature Andino in the fetal position, sobbing uncontrollably. If you thought being a fan of the Orioles was a tough gig, just look what happens when you actually play for them.  Notice how the joy gets sucked out of O’s second baseman Robert Andino’s face with each passing year?  It’s like one of those “before and after” shots...

This is Robert Andino. This is Robert Andino on the Orioles

There is nothing but negativity that surrounds the Baltimore Orioles organization. This is an organization that has seen only 7 winning seasons since winning the 1983 World Series, and not one since the 1997 season. This screen cap that was posted over at Jockular, captures the essence of what it is like to be involved [...]

Andino says he wasn't tipping pitches vs Yankees

Orioles second baseman Robert Andino says he wasn't tipping the location of pitches in Baltimore's game against the New York Yankees on Monday night. Andino and New York catcher Russell Martin had an angry exchange after the Yankees' 6-2 win. Andino hit a leadoff double off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning and did not advance. Andino said Tuesday that Martin accused...

Guerrero turns himself over to police

Dylan Bundy: Too Good For A-Ball

Last week, I missed out on Dylan Bundy’s pro debut, as I just couldn’t make the two hour drive to Asheville work with my schedule. But, tonight, Bundy was even closer, pitching just over an hour away in Kannapolis, and I wasn’t going to miss him twice in a span of six days. So, I jumped down I-85 and took in a game with the other 100 or so people who decided to brave the...

The Dugout Opening Days ’12: Baltimore Orioles

He’s not technically a Baltimore Oriole anymore, but when the O’s disassociate themselves from you you’re an Oriole until proven otherwise. From an AP report: SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) Former major leaguer Vladimir Guerrero said he has surrendered to police after authorities contend he attacked a police officer in a disco. Guerrero denied being part of an attack...

Wei-Yin Chen's First Start For The O's

I didn't get a chance to see Wei-Yin Chen make his Major League debut yesterday - I got home for the bottom of the 9th, so at least I was treated to the extra-innings loss - but I've heard some complementary things about it. Chen's line on the night: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R (2 ER - thanks Mark Reynolds), 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR (to Derek Jeter, leading off the game). The strike-out...

Chen Has Decent Debut; Orioles Lose Close One Late Against the Yankees...

Last night, the Baltimore Orioles played their longest game of the season – 12 innings – and lost to the New York Yankees, 5-4. The Orioles have lost two in a row. They blew opportunity after opportunity on Tuesday and the Yankees won the game in the top of the eleventh as pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez drilled a ground-rule double to right off reliever Pedro Strop – who took...

Game 6: Orioles 4, Yankees 6

The O's lost game one of this series handily, game two in - not quite heart-breaking - but hard to take fashion, and have to deal with CC Sabathia in game three. The Good: Things did not get off to a particularly auspicious start for Jake Arrieta, as he gave up a two-run homer to the second batter of the game. He settled down after that though, and looked mighty impressive...
