The “MLB Network Countdown” will rank the top 40 greatest teams in baseball history at 9 p.m.
It probably comes as no surprise that the 1970 Orioles made the final cut.
Teams are ranked from 1961 to the present, and the 1970 Orioles made the Top 10.
Meanwhile, the NFL Network is currently showing a replay of last weekend’s Ravens-Steelers game. I think I’ll pass, so to speak.
By the way, former Orioles outfielder Lou Montanez texted me earlier today and said his minor league deal with the Chicago Cubs isn’t official, but they did reach an agreement. He also says that he’ll miss his teammates in Baltimore.
Montanez had a walk-off double for Criollos de Caguas of the Puerto Rican Winter League, which advanced his team into the championship series. He’s starting in right field tonight in Game 1 against Leones de Ponce, and he has an RBI single.
Also, the Orioles re-signed pitcher Armando Gabino to a minor league deal, according to Baseball America’s Matt Eddy.
