Who says the Orioles haven't made any moves?Name:
Tremblay was born in Montreal and was drafted out of Kent State by he Padres in the 19th round of the 2009 draft.
Up to this point he has been a light-hitting utility type (catcher, centerfielder and pitcher were the only spots he did not play in the Padre system) and with his .591 minor league career OPS and with only 78 games played at high-A by age 24, his glove had better be really good.
What else do we know about Mr. Temblay? He has a really gnarly tattoo on his shoulder and he writes a blog
, not about baseball, but about literature and writing. He does have an entry about getting released by the Padres
but generally, this is not a baseball blog.
Look for him in Frederick this season.

In an attempt to stop Major League Baseball from draining its...

One thing I miss though is Baltimore sports news. Baltimore sports news, specifically about the Orioles, is a combination of extremely depressing, pathetic and sometimes absolutely bizarre.
My Dad sent me an article today...
