NICK MARKAKIS RUMORS

The Orioles are clearly the best team in the East

J.J. Hardy Nick Markakis – Photo Credit – Keith Allison   As we turn the calendar over to September, we’re officially past the “dog days” of summer. Now is the time where EVERY game is important. And I mean every game — a blown save or one bad inning could be the difference between whether you are playing baseball in October…or you are playing Golf in October. Some...

WATCH: Nick Markakis robs Conor Gillaspie of go-ahead HR

With the White Sox trailing the Orioles 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Nick Markakis robbed Conor Gillaspie of what would have been a go-ahead two run homer. Not content with taking away Chicago’s chance at tying the game, Markakis capped off a five-run eighth inning for Baltimore with a two-run homer of his own to right field with a little more lift than Gillaspie’s fly out had.

Your browser does not support iframes.After Baltimore Orioles first baseman Nick Markakis hit the game-winning single in Saturday night's 10-inning 3-2 walk-off win over Kansas City, he was rewarded with some cream pie - and not to the face. As Markakis was giving his postgame interview, teammate J.J. Hardy approached him from behind with the pie and a spoon, politely offering...

Nick Markakis’ New Look Indicates He Spent This Offseason Lost At Sea

With Spring Training on the horizon, Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis has emerged from his offseason cave or deserted island to debut a new, “fluffier” look. The usually well-groomed Markakis now has a curly fro with a pretty grizzly beard, making him look more like a 70s disco icon (or Raffi from ‘The League’) than a professional baseball player. Maybe Nick watched the...

Nick Markakis: A-wrist-ed development?

Nick Markakis was the one player on the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and 2008 that teams did not want to face at the plate. After a very good rookie campaign in 2006, Markakis became a star in the next two seasons and compiled 11.6 rWAR during those two seasons (10.6 fWAR). In 2013, this same Nick Markakis became one of the least valuable players in baseball with -0.1 WAR on both...

NOT TOUGH ENOUGH

The Mets Support Orioles OF Nick Markakis…Wait What?

Picture Courtesy of @MetsPolice Well the New York Mets are trying their best, to get not only their players voted into the All-Star Game this year, but to help out other players as well. Nick Markakis is, in my opinion, a very talented Right Fielder for the Baltimore Orioles. I think with a big season, he could certainly be an All-Star for the American League. He has never made it...

Markakis Coming into His Own (Or Was Anyway...)

I was working on this post but then I was at that game last Saturday night at OPACY when C.C. Sabathia hit Nick Markakis with a pitch and broke his thumb and it thoroughly bummed me out so I set this post aside. I'm going to post it anyway since I think his recent performance still hints at future greatness...If I consider Nick Markakis' Oriole career disappointing, it'...

The O's Got The Win, But Lost a Bigger Piece In Nick Markakis

The Orioles splitting their four-game series with the Yankees in Baltimore was not ideal - it left them a game back in the AL East - but is was more or less the expected result given that New York is the better team but the O's had home-field advantage. Both victories for the team came in exciting fashion, perhaps especially the second one in which a hobbled Mark Teixeira slid...
