I have always been impressed with professional athletes who go out of their way to give back to the community. It's one thing to have a charitable foundation, but it's special when the athletes are out in the community in person, especially with events and causes that benefit children. On the Orioles first off day of the season I spent the evening at the Harford
There isn't anyone who saw this coming. The Orioles' slow start is shocking and disappointing. The team that broke spring training was expected to be competitive - and still can be. But the players have to take stock and step it up in all phases of the game, especially with their approach. Physical mistakes are part of the game and happen to every team.
I recently had a chance to sit down with right-hander Brad Bergesen to talk about how his experiences from last season have translated to the mound this year and how looking back at a poor outing can help prepare Brad for his next start. We also touched on the overall success of the O's starting rotation, despite the team's struggles so far this season.
