Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones gave rookie teammate Kevin Gausman a tasty spring training treat Sunday morning. Here is the scoop.Gausman, a top pitching prospect for the O's, apparently loves powdered doughnuts. In fact, one of his rituals includes eating four of the sugary gems in between each inning he pitches.So, in an effort to feed (no pun intended) Gausman's habit, the veteran Jones generously gave him a whole season's supply. What a great teammate.All in all, Gausman believes he received about 1,500 powdered doughnuts in the deal. If my math serves me correct, that means Gausman is good to pitch over 350 innings this year. Yeah, I think his supply may carry over for the 2014 campaign, too.Via Twitter

Do you remember the story about how upset top Baltimore Orioles prospect Kevin Gausman was when he learned that Hostess was shutting down shop last fall? O’s outfielder Adam Jones was paying very close attention. Just to rehash your memory. . .Gausman eats one powdered mini donut before he takes the mound, then four between each inning he pitches. Realistically, Gausman could eat...

The Baltimore Orioles reached an agreement with starting

And why doesn’t Jim Thome’s Hinsdale, Illinois house have deer mounts in every room? The guy is trying to sell this massive house for $3,500,000 and doesn’t have a single dead animal in the house. All mystique associated with Jim Bunyan has been ruined. And what’s up with all the tulips?

And the right-hander did so without even appearing in a game.O'Day agreed to a two-year, $5.8 million deal with Baltimore on Monday to become the 133rd and final arbitration-eligible player to settle without going to a hearing.
