Better Know a 2012 Oriole: Lew Ford

In part seven of my (hopefully) 52 part series, Better Know a 2012 Oriole, I take a look at Lew Ford... the fightin' forgotten man! "'Before the 2012 season, the last time Lew Ford played in the Major Leagues was in 2007. The last time Lew Ford had even 300 plate appearances in the Major Leagues was in 2005. So when the Orioles signed him to add some outfield depth...

Orioles Lose in Toronto; A Huge Weekend Against the Yankees...

The Orioles, as we all know, lost last night to the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-4. All in all, they had a successful road trip, going 6-2; however, last night, you expected the Orioles to sweep their rivals to the north. It’s weird to believe it, but I did think it was going to be done for a bit. Miguel Gonzalez grinded through his start on the mound; alas, he ran into trouble in the...
