Found January 15, 2013 on Oriole Post:
ESPN this afternoon released their first-half schedule for their 'Sunday Night Baseball' broadcast, and the Baltimore Orioles will be featured on April 14th against the New York Yankees. The two teams last played on the Sunday broadcast at the end of 2008, as the network decided to cover the last game at old Yankee Stadium. This has been a long time coming for us fans. Yes, it's only a Sunday night game on cable; however, ESPN has long overlooked the Birds for their marquee game of the week. Maybe last season's winning and a playoff berth had something to do with the decision by the network.

Player Profile #155: Nick Markakis | OF | BAL

Nick Markakis is usually a lock for 150 games (averaged 158 games from 2006-2011), but he only managed 104 games last year thanks to a fractured hamate bone and a broken thumb. It’s too bad because Markakis was actually starting to show some of that power we saw early in his career; his .174 ISO last year was his highest mark since .185 in 2008. His increased power even came while...

Could Orioles trade Jim Johnson for Porcello?

The Baltimore Orioles arent interested in trading shortstop J.J. Hardy to Detroit for starter Rick Porcello. They may be more willing to trade closer Jim Johnson. At first blush, that seems odd. But theres a sabermetric rationale behind it. Johnson could have a superb 2013 season and still not approach what he accomplished last year: He led the majors with 51 saves, made his first...

Adam Jones Is Awesome (PHOTO)

I know that many of you don’t care for the Orioles but I do and this is so cool: Adam Jones flew from his home in San Diego to Baltimore for Ray Lewis’ final home game, then traveled to Denver to watch the Ravens upset the Broncos in double overtime and now he’s headed to New England for the AFC Championship.
