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.

The Baltimore Orioles have apologized to two South Korean baseball organizations upset with the club over its contract with a local high school pitcher. The Korea Baseball Association said Friday that the Orioles violated local rules that bar the signing of student players until their graduation year.
The Philadelphia Phillies have 1 possible path to bring back Roy Oswalt, while Antonio Bastardo leads a slew of young guns into Camp Clearwater. The baseline from Triple-A to the majors is 50%, who will stick with the parent club and who will miss that last jump? There are 8–including Michael Stutes–and 4 each will fall on different sides of the centerfield fence.
