Hot News for SS Robert Andino
Set the bar low
There are a few things in life that I feel deserve low expectations: Action movies that come out in January, Middle East peace talks and Robert Andino.

Looking to build some infield depth, the Seattle Mariners have acquired Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.

I’m guessing next year’s picture will feature Andino in the fetal position, sobbing uncontrollably.
If you thought being a fan of the Orioles was a tough gig, just look what happens when you actually play for them. Notice how the joy gets sucked out of O’s second baseman Robert Andino’s face with each passing year? It’s like one of those “before and after” shots...
We don’t know a lot about Baltimore Orioles infielder Robert Andino, but we do know he’s not real happy to be in Baltimore. Just take a look at the photo above.
Andino came to the O’s in 2009, after spending the first four seasons of his big-league career with the Marlins. In 2010 he was obviously still a pretty happy-go-lucky kid. In 2011, he was still kinda happy. But in...
WIPE OFF THAT SMILE
Orioles infielder Robert Andino started off his time in the majors happy, but over the years he's grown stern. Look at the pics.
