McCrory To Get Surgery

Dave Trembley announced today that right handed reliever Bob McCrory will undergo surgery on Friday to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. He’s expected to be out of commission for about six months. That does make him questionable for spring trianing. However, there was nothing guaranteeing McCrory would still be on the Orioles forty man roster when spring training comes around anyway. McCrory

Wieters R.O.Y?

Not to undermine Nolan Reimold’s hopes of being voted AL Rookie of the Year, but I can’t help but pose the question: Should Matt Wieters’ name be amongst the candidates as well? As of Wednesday’s game against the Blue Jays, his .286 batting average is the highest among all AL rookies. Nolan Reimold is second with a .279 average. Reimold has more RBI’s than

Glaring Holes in O's Lineup

It’s not as if everyone watching O’s games lately hasn’t noticed how much this club is in desperate need of a power hitter. It’s impossible to compete in the AL East without one---and even one might not be enough, especially when teams like the Yankees have anywhere from four to six big boppers in the lineup at any time. Tuesday in Toronto the Orioles did

New York on 9/11

The weather matches the mood here in NY. On the eighth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, there is a somber mood across the city. There are subtle reminders all over Manhattan of how terrible that day was. Here at Yankee stadium there is that sad undertone, but also one of camaraderie. Before the game the colors were presented

Uehara Not Available

Koji Uehara is in Boston with the team, but he will not be available to pitch tonight. After Uehara’s last bullpen session in Sarasota, he told Orioles Minor League Medical Coordinator Dave Walker, he was not ready to pitch yet in a big league game. He threw 40 pitches in that session. Uehara has been rehabbing a partially torn flexor tendon in his pitching

Should O's Shut 'Em Down?

What happens if Chris Tillman has a breakthrough performance tonight or his next start? What if he pitches seven innings plus with ease? We saw Brian Matusz do it last Sunday, and it makes you wonder. Will the Orioles still shut down their two young arms early if they roll through their next two starts? Andy MacPhail has said nothing is clear cut. Though

Jones Down, Pie Up

Tough break for Adam Jones. As it’s been reported on MASNsports.com that his sprained ankle could be a season-ending injury. Coming into September his focus was on finishing strong - now he has to deal with the reality that he won’t have the chance. Clearly his second half of the season (.222 average, 7 HR, 23 RBIs) was not nearly as strong as his
