The Orioles are reportedly looking to trade “third baseman” Mark Reynolds and reliever Kevin Gregg. You think so, doctor? It would be strange if the team really waited until this late to start shopping these two veterans, who are rather pointless on a team that is at the beginning of what looks ...

Buck Showalter meets his Waterloo

No one can exactly determine the benefit or harm a baseball manager brings to his team. The oft-trotted out discourses are the chemistry, organization, inspiration sides of what a manager does. But how to you measure that? You can't. Fairly or unfairly, a manager is judged by the bottom line of wins and losses. If his team wins, the manager gets to hang around. If it loses, he...

2012 Fantasy Baseball, AL-Only: Five one dollar pitchers to target in your auction

Brian Matusz By Moe Koltun of RotoAnalysis.com exclusively for TheFantasyFix.com. Winning an AL or NL only league nearly always comes down to hitting one or two of those 1 dollar guys who turn into 20 dollar guys (see Bautista, Jose) combined with not grabbing the one dollar guys that absolutely tank your team (see Matusz, Brian, who absolutely ruined one of my teams last year)....

Bald eagle watches Red Sox and Orioles play spring training game (Video)

A rare sight was seen at the Baltimore Orioles spring training stadium in Sarasota, Florida: a bald eagle made a nest in a cell phone tower at Ed Smith Stadium. Your browser does not support iframes.

D-Train makes a stop in Baltimore

On Sunday I wrote about Dontrelle Willis getting released by the Philadelphia Phillies. To my surprise, the Baltimore Orioles officially signed Willis to a minor-league deal on Wednesday.  I’m not sure what the Orioles gain with this deal, more than likely a LOOGY, but Willis really has to step his game up if he wants to make it to the big club once the season gets under way...

Orioles 6, Red Sox 5

Clay Buchholz allowed five runs over five innings in a shaky outing and the Boston Red Sox lost 6-5 to the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.

Forbes Magazine and the Business of Baseball

According to Forbes Magazine, the Baltimore Orioles are worth $460 billion, and the value of franchise has increased 12% since 2011. As well, Forbes reported that the Orioles made $179 in terms of revenue, and $12.9 million of operating income.

About Yesterday; Chen...

Yesterday, the Baltimore Orioles demolished the Minnesota Twins, 11-1, in Grapefruit League action. The story of the day was the pitching of Wei-Yin Chen. Obviously, the Orioles need as much pitching as they can get, and so far Chen has been promising down in Florida during his first MLB Spring Training. He gave up a run in five innings of work and gave up four hits. He struck...
