Found August 28, 2012 on Fangraphs:
While the Orioles bullpen has continued to keep them in the playoff race, the Orioles rotation has been a bit of a patchwork job all year long, and so today, they’ve reportedly signed a new patch named Randy Wolf. While you can perhaps make a case for a change-of-scenery helping give players a ...

Orioles Sign Randy Wolf

The Baltimore Orioles apparently have signed free-agent lefty and recent Brewer Randy Wolf.  It didn't take long for Wolf to find a new team.  Wolf will be pitching in the AL for the first time, although as of now it's unclear if he's joined Baltimore to fortify a young rotation or to help from the bullpen.  The Orioles were among the suspected suitors for Wolf in...

Orioles close to signing Randy Wolf

The Baltimore Orioles are close to signing free agent left-hander Randy Wolf, who was released by the Milwaukee Brewers last week. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wolf was expected to arrive in Baltimore on Wednesday and there's a chance he could be activated before Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Wolf was cut loose by the Brewers after going 3-10 with...

Saunders trade will push Baltimore Orioles into play-offs

For the first time in this whole season I, as a Baltimore Orioles fan, have hope. Despite this being one of the most successful seasons in a long time for Baltimore there has always been this aura of doubt for me. I am always a pessimist when it comes to the ball club, so even with everything going great it was hard to see a bright future. Things hit their breaking point when the...

Revolving door has O's still in hunt

Center fielder Adam Jones was professing ignorance about the makeup of the Baltimore Orioles' ever-changing pitching staff, saying, "I don't even know what our five-man rotation is." First baseman Chris Davis, standing a few lockers away, smiled and agreed. "We have, like, a nine-man rotation," Davis said. A nine-man rotation, a 35-man roster, the fourth...

Despite missed opportunities, McLouth’s two-run bomb lifts O’s over White Sox

“Every game there’s a different star, that’s the magic of Orioles baseball!” Nick Markakis twice came up with the bases loaded, and twice failed to deliver not a single run. Adam Jones was 0-for-4 on the night. The team left eight runners on base. No matter. The O’s have Lew Ford and Nate McLouth! That’s right, in another improbable Orioles victory during this summer...

McLouth's 2-Run Shot Late Propels Orioles; Where are the fans?

The Orioles on Monday night earned their 70th win of the season – quite an amazing accomplishment based on what many predicted in the winter. They beat a tough, gritty Chicago team that is leading American League Central and have won their third game in a row. Two role players – Nate McLouth and Lew Ford came up huge on the night. Considering both guys were in baseball wilderness...

Yo is my bro

Well it kind of looks like this is going to be Brewers Appreciation Week because I am all about the love right now. These guys deserve it. Aramis Ramirez has been killing the baseball lately and that deserves kudos. I could write twenty five hundred words about Ryan Braun anytime, any place. I could do it every single day if I wanted to. He's that good, but you know who never...

Brewers Starting Rotation: Strikeout Machine

The Milwaukee Brewers have been one of the biggest disappointments of the 2012 season, underperforming expectations that had them contending for back-to-back divisional crowns in the mediocre NL Central. The bullpen imploded in spectacular fashion, Alex Gonzalez suffered a season-ending knee injury early on, Zack Greinke is now pitching in Los Angeles, and Shaun Marcum threw for...

Orioles 4, White Sox 3

Nate McLouth hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning, Lew Ford also connected and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the White Sox 4-3 on Monday night, ending Chicago's six-game winning streak. It was the franchise-record 13th consecutive one-run win for the Orioles, who trailed 2-1 in the sixth and 3-2 in the eighth. After the White Sox went up 3-2 in the eighth against...

Orioles Press Release: Orioles-Blue Jays game postponed due to rain

Top Play: Brewers hit back-to-back-back home runs in ninth

The Milwaukee Brewers proved to be spoilers for Cubs fans at Wrigley filed on Monday night, as Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart hit three consecutive home runs in the ninth inning. The Cubs entered the ninth with a two run lead, only to finish the game on the short end of a 15 to 4 romp. The nine-run ninth inning began with a there-run blast off the bat of reigning NL MVP...

Mark Rogers’ Repertoire, Illustrated

Milwaukee right-hander Mark Rogers made his sixth start on Sunday since his late-July recall from Brewers Triple-A affiliate Nashville — and, while he was slightly less impressive yesterday (5.0 IP, 4.66 xFIP) than in previous outings, Rogers both (a) allowed zero runs (which is kinda the best number of runs a pitcher can allow) and (b) escaped with a still very reasonable 89 xFIP...

Brewers 3, Cubs 1

Mike Fiers tossed 7 1-3 solid innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-1 win over the Cubs on Wednesday night, their eighth straight victory against Chicago. Fiers (8-6) held the Cubs to four hits and struck out six, helping Milwaukee beat its division rival for the 13th time in 16 games this season. The Brewers have won eight of their last nine overall and moved within five...
