Jair Jurrjens And The 2013 Orioles

Against all, or at least most,odds the Baltimore Orioles flew on into the playoffs  in 2012. It defied logic really. I mean on paper they had no business being there. They were not picked by, I would go ahead and say anyone, to even finish higher than fifth in the A.L. East, let alone make the playoffs.

Jair Jurrjens

Last week, the Baltimore Orioles signed another pitcher; however, it was not a name that I even had on my radar. Then again, there were rumors about a few years ago concerning Jair Jurrjens donning the black and the orange.
