The Victory Formation:
The country went into a panic last Friday when it was announced that Hostess, makers of Wonder Bread and Twinkies announced they were closing the doors, amid low sales and a workers strike.

In part eight of my (hopefully) 52 part series, Better Know a 2012 Oriole, I take a look at Tommy Hunter... the fightin' sudden power reliever!
"'Quick; who was second on the Orioles in innings pitched this year (pretend you haven't seen the title)?
Right, Tommy Hunter with 133.2 IP. Sometimes you just need a guy to take the ball, I guess.."

M’s land versatile infielder
Looking to build some infield depth, the Seattle Mariners have acquired Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
With a surplus of outfielders, and a lack of depth in the middle infield, this is a trade purely for depths sake. In his career, Andino has played second, third, shortstop, left and centerfield.
Looking to add depth to the infield, the Seattle Mariners acquired versatile Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday in exchange for reserve outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
