On Tuesday, Adam Jones took a 1-0 fastball from CC Sabathia in the second inning and launched it out to left field. On Wednesday, in the 15th inning, he destroyed a curveball from Nate Adcock, breaking a 3-3 tie and giving the Orioles a go-ahead run that led to their extra inning win. Yesterday...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Well, it’s safe to assume that we are seeing the best of Adam Jones these days. At this point, do the Orioles consider extending him now? Will it get to the point where fans are asking to “pay the man?”I think Jones has now taken his game to another level. Last night showed it.Anyhow, last night, Adam Jones’ solo shot in the 15th inning broke a 3-3 tie and sent the Baltimore...
We are almost at the quarter-pole of the 2012 season, and the Orioles – yes – are still rolling. This afternoon, the Orioles won their third game in a row, and swept the Royals, defeating them, 5-3, in amazing fashion. They are now an astounding 25-14 so far this season and they have the best record in baseball. Once again, the Orioles found themselves in a hole; however, they...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Adam Jones homered with one out in the 15th inning, lifting the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

The Dodgers iron man Matt Kemp has been placed on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. In a subsequent move Jerry Sands was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. Kemp, April's NL player of the month, was leading the NL in all three Triple Crown categories. On top of that, Kemp had played in a Major League high 399 games, last missing a game on August 18, 2009. That...
(AP) -- Adam Jones seems to do his best work as a one-man wrecking crew, and that's fine with the Baltimore Orioles.
Jones and the Orioles seek to extend their longest road winning streak in more than 12 years Thursday when they wrap up a two-game series at Kansas City against the Royals.
Jones' 12 homers are good for a third-place tie in the AL, but still far behind the...

I wrote about the position players yesterday; Adam Jones is clearly playing over his head (we don't know by how much, but I'd wager that he doesn't end the year with 50 home runs), but otherwise things seem relatively reasonable overall. There will be some drop-off there, but maybe not a huge amount. It's on the pitching side where I think more people are holding...
Ok seriously who are these guys and what have they done with our Orioles from the past 14 years?
So far to date this team has showed us they are true competitors by hanging around late in games and despite not always winning they still manage to make some noise late and at least show us they are giving it all they have.
But back-to-back come from behind wins in the 7th inning or...
As a player collector, finding good deals is essential. They end up being the determiner in how complete I feel my collection of a particular player is at any given time. Deals aren't always there, but when they are, you have to pounce before the market flips and autos, patches, and other hits skyrocket. The time to make your move is when your favorite player is struggling, and...
The ever-increasing number of players on the DL means that managers need to be on the waiver wire as often as possible. Staying active is instrumental in keeping an edge in your league and with names of hitters like Matt Kemp, Evan Longoria, Pablo Sand...
...... I am giving 1.5 runs for +180. Here are the numbers folks.....Aaron Harrang is 0-1 with a 5.92 ERA in two starts vs the Pads in 2012. Yes, he did strikeout 13 in one game, but obviously the Pads feel like they can get to Harrang. Edinson Volquez meanwhile is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA vs the Dodgers this year...not good until you factor is Matt Kemp was 5-9 vs Volquez in those two...
