If Sherrill Goes....What Next?

Sure it’s premature, but that’s what we bloggers do--throw out scenarios, speculation, and hypothetical situations. The Major League Baseball trade deadline is approaching (4:00 p.m. Friday, July 31) and it seems the Oriole drawing the most interest from clubs around the league is George Sherrill. Fox Sports is reporting as many as eight teams are interested in the lefty reliever, including the White Sox,

Rollin Nolan

Nolan Reimold is proving he has the ability to work his way down the major league skills checklist. Hitting for power---check (9 HR). Hitting for average---check (.429 avg since the break). Drawing walks---check. Hustle---check (no one on the roster runs harder on a routine ground ball). Stolen Bases---check. Wait a minute---stolen bases??? Lately the answer has been yes, Reimold can run. As Dave Trembley said;

Cla Meredith throws like Cal?

Cla Meredith made his Orioles debut in the seventh inning of Wednesday’s game against the Yankees. The first thing you notice about the five year major league veteran is his sidearm delivery. It’s very deceptive. Where did he get it from? Meredith told me growing up in Richmond, Va. he watched the Orioles on what was then Home Team Sports. Like most kids of

Where was baseball when man landed on moon?

As America celebrates the 40th anniversary of the day Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon, I looked up some interesting tidbits about what was happening in baseball that day. Here’s what I found: The Orioles fell to the Red Sox 6-5 in Boston. It was the last loss before the team would go on a seven-game winning streak. Mike

Bergesen's contributions loom large

Looking back at the Orioles’ first half of the season, you have to put the emergence of Brad Bergesen as one of the most significant events of the year. Bergesen has been the Orioles only consistent starter since his arrival in the big leagues April 21st. With the starting rotation struggling the way it has recently, it’s hard to imagine how bad the situation

Ailing O's Back Soon

The Orioles should be getting two of their key players back from the disabled list soon. Cesar Izturis is expected to be activated this Friday for the weekend series against the Blue Jays. Dennis Sarfate is heading out on a nine to ten game rehab assignment beginning this weekend. Getting Izturis back is huge for the Orioles as he is the staple of the

Bedard Trade Pays Big for O's

Every time the Orioles visit SafeCo Field in Seattle, I can’t help but wonder if the Mariners cringe at the thought of what they gave up to the O’s two years ago. At the time, the M’s were coming off an 88-win season and saw Erik Bedard as the missing piece they needed to make a playoff push in 2008. There’s no question he’s

O's Outfield Top in League?

After learning Nolan Reimold had been named AL Rookie of the Month Friday, I spoke to John “T-Bone” Shelby about the Orioles outfield. He told me, forget the future, he’d put the trio of Nick Markakis, Adam Jones, and Reimold up against any other outfield in the American League. He has a point. Right now the O’s outfield leads the AL with 18 outfield
