Manny Machado Shows Off His Trick Play Skills

Manny Machado is going to be an excellent Major League shortstop, right now though the Baltimore Orioles need a third baseman and so he's been rushed to the big leagues to play the hot corner. So far, he's more than held his own. Prior to his team winning in the ninth against the Rays and holding onto their tie for first place with New York, Machado and the O's needed...

Manny Machado pulls off the fake throw trick

Manny Machado had just everyone fooled on Wednesday who showed up to watch the Baltimore Orioles play The Tampa Bay Rays. With two outs in the ninth inning, Evan Longoria bunted on a full count down the third base line. Manny Machado charged the bunt and barehanded it and pulled off a perfect ‘fake throw to first, and in nearly the same motion he was able to toss it to O’s...

Machado makes clutch, thinking-man's defensive gem

Baltimore Orioles rookie third baseman Manny Machado made a play Wednesday night that wouldn't be expected from a 20-year-old in his first full month in the majors -- playing a position entirely new to him, too. The Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays were tied 3-3 with two outs in the top of the ninth inning and the go-ahead run at second. Machado charged a grounder from the bat of...

Orioles keep finding ways to surprise

Rich Thompson is a 33-year-old rookie. He had one at-bat with the Kansas City Royals in 2004 -- a double-play grounder -- and toiled in the minors for eight more seasons before returning to the big leagues this month with the Tampa Bay Rays. In short, he's straight out of central casting for the Dan Johnson-style hero who has enjoyed fairytale star turns for the franchise since...

A Solid Season For The Iron Pigs Ends In Disappointment

This is the Golden Age of BC football coverage

How quickly things can change when it comes to media. Only a few weeks ago, it seemed like Boston's flagship newspaper might not even cover BC. Fortunately Julian Benbow started this week and has already written features on Bollman and the running backs. The Herald's Rich Thompson embraced his new role and is producing at least one BC article a day. This is probably the best...

Still no BC coverage in the Globe but Benbow's on the way

The Herald wrote two articles following the team's second scrimmage (St. X feature and notebook). New beat writer Rich Thompson seems to be embracing his assignment and told me he plans to join twitter once the season begins. Across town things are a little different. The Globe did not send anyone to cover BC's scrimmage. Julian Benbow is scheduled to cover the team this...

Rich Thompson will cover BC football this Fall for the Herald

There is some news on the BC media front. The Herald assigned Rich Thompson to the BC beat for this Fall's football season. Rich has covered BC on occasion over the years, but mostly on the basketball side. Thompson is a welcome addition, as the Herald's focus has been spotty since Steve Conroy started splitting his time on hockey. Hopefully a new voice on the BC scene will...

Godzilla’s back, and there’s gonna be trouble. Hideki Matsui, after a somewhat* underwhelming display in Triple-A, will join the Tampa Bay Rays tonight as they take on the Chicago White Sox at home.
