Domonic Brown should be on Orioles radar

When the Philadelphia Phillies elected to remove Domonic Brown from their 40-man roster, the 28-year-old outfielder elected free agency. Who could blame him? Being left off the 40-man at the age of 28 is a clear sign that the organization has given up on you and is ready to move on. The Phillies soured on Brown for plenty of reasons — low batting average, low on-base percentage...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Baltimore Orioles

Maybe it was because they weren’t able to sneak up on anyone again this year or maybe it was because they weren’t that good to begin with, but either way the Baltimore Orioles were one of the more disappointing teams of the 2015 season.  Manager Buck Showalter could not work his magic this year and the defending AL East champions may not even finish at .500.

Buck Showalter, 21st Century Hero

Wednesday night, Jonathan Papelbon threw a couple of fastballs in the general direction of Manny Machado’s face. If you want to see testosterone-fueled brutality in all its stupid ugly idiotic glory, here you go: Papelbon was seemingly “retaliating” because Machado did or said something wrong after hitting a go-ahead homer off Max Scherzer in the seventh inning. Whatever. If...

Nolan Reimold could be playing his way into Orioles’ 2016 plans

In his time managing the Baltimore Orioles, Buck Showalter has taken a decidedly non-traditional approach to the leadoff spot. All the way back in 2012, Showalter turned to Nolan Reimold to manage the leadoff duties. At 6’4″ and 205 pounds, Reimold, who had 15 stolen bases in 227 career games to date prior to the opening of the 2012 season, was not a prototypical leadoff man...

Lesson learned: Minor leaguer hits HR but misses plate

BALTIMORE (AP) When a player hits a home run, there's really only one overriding rule when running the bases: Touch `em all. Elier Levya of the Class A Delmarva Shorebirds failed to do so after hitting a clutch home run Sunday, and his mistake proved costly in a 5-4 loss. Levya hit the ball over the wall in the ninth inning to apparently give visiting Delmarva a 5-4 lead over Augusta...
