After Hunter blows save, Clevenger keeps streak alive with walk-off double in 5-4 win vs. Astros

Following a 55-minute rain delay that they probably shouldn't have had to endure Saturday night, the Orioles had new life against the Houston Astros. Closer Tommy Hunter had just blown a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning before a downpour descended on Camden Yards.

Orioles need more pieces to effectively trade

In Dan Duquette’s first offseason with the Orioles he made only one major trade sending Jeremy Guthrie to the Colorado Rockies for Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom.

International Bonus Money Already Changing Hands

One thing that is new this year on the international market is that teams can trade from their bonus pools. A team can trade for bonus pool money, giving them the ability to acquire up to 50% of their original bonus pool. For example, the Pirates have a bonus pool of $2,426,000. That means they can trade for up to $1,213,000 in additional pool money. What I didn’t know until today...

Cubs' Steve Clevenger still has tenderness in oblique

Chicago Cubs catcher Steve Clevenger has had a very good rehab assignment statistically, but, unfortunately, tenderness in his left oblique may keep him off the Cubs' active roster for a while longer. Clevenger began a Triple-A rehab assignment on June 3, and he hit very well: .375 with 3 HR and 11 RBI in 15 games. Performance like this would lead to believe that Clevenger would...
