Former MVP and nine-time All Star Vladimir Guerrero was arrested in the Dominican Republic Tuesday for allegedly assaulting a police officer after a brawl at a nightclub in the city of Bani. Guerrero will be charged with physical and verbal assault of a police officer and is currently in custody. The 37-year-old had to turn himself in to authorities after an all-points bulletin was issued and police were requesting all through the night for him to turn himself in.  Guerrero most recently worked out for the Cleveland Indians in the DR, a workout that he supposedly requested. He and his agent have been waiting for a call from an MLB team, but have said that if one does not come -- and it's possible that this incident will be the cherry on top -- Guerrero will consider playing in Japan.  Despite being his worst season in the bigs, Guerrero still hit .290/.317/.733 with 13 home runs in 562 at bats in 2011 for the Baltimore Orioles. Before his arrest, it was kind of surprising ther...

The Dugout Opening Days ’12: Baltimore Orioles

He’s not technically a Baltimore Oriole anymore, but when the O’s disassociate themselves from you you’re an Oriole until proven otherwise. From an AP report: SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) Former major leaguer Vladimir Guerrero said he has surrendered to police after authorities contend he attacked a police officer in a disco. Guerrero denied being part of an attack...

Dylan Bundy: Too Good For A-Ball

Last week, I missed out on Dylan Bundy’s pro debut, as I just couldn’t make the two hour drive to Asheville work with my schedule. But, tonight, Bundy was even closer, pitching just over an hour away in Kannapolis, and I wasn’t going to miss him twice in a span of six days. So, I jumped down I-85 and took in a game with the other 100 or so people who decided to brave the...

Andino says he wasn't tipping pitches vs Yankees

Orioles second baseman Robert Andino says he wasn't tipping the location of pitches in Baltimore's game against the New York Yankees on Monday night. Andino and New York catcher Russell Martin had an angry exchange after the Yankees' 6-2 win. Andino hit a leadoff double off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning and did not advance. Andino said Tuesday that Martin accused...

Wei-Yin Chen's First Start For The O's

I didn't get a chance to see Wei-Yin Chen make his Major League debut yesterday - I got home for the bottom of the 9th, so at least I was treated to the extra-innings loss - but I've heard some complementary things about it. Chen's line on the night: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R (2 ER - thanks Mark Reynolds), 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR (to Derek Jeter, leading off the game). The strike-out...

Baltimore Orioles fan pays big price for brief fame

It took a while, but the cops finally dropped the hammer on him.

Enjoy the sweep, enjoy it!

The Orioles swept the Twins and emotions are running high. They swept the Twins by way of three fantastic starting pitching performances: 22IP/ 3R/ 1ER/ 10H/ 12K/ 6BB. For a team that many national writers expect to lose 100 games and have one of the worst pitching staffs in recent baseball history - that is a very good start. Yet, the refrain I am hearing from too many people is...

There is Hope for the O’s

If you would have told me that the Baltimore Orioles would sweep the Minnesota Twins in their opening series and their starting pitchers would throw 22 innings and only allow 1 run, I would have told you to put down the case of Natty Boh. Starting pitching is the biggest concern for the Orioles this year as they had seemingly downgraded the position after trading away Jeremy Guthrie...

Game 6: Orioles 4, Yankees 6

The O's lost game one of this series handily, game two in - not quite heart-breaking - but hard to take fashion, and have to deal with CC Sabathia in game three. The Good: Things did not get off to a particularly auspicious start for Jake Arrieta, as he gave up a two-run homer to the second batter of the game. He settled down after that though, and looked mighty impressive...
