Most players posed with a dog or two, and the variety of breeds ranges from bull dogs to weimaraners.

Timeline of a minor league trade

It’s only been a few weeks since Orioles fans found out George Sherrill would become a Los Angeles Dodger in exchange for third baseman Josh Bell and right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson, the son of former Oriole and current MASN color analyst Dave Johnson. But those weeks have been fast and furious for the young men involved. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like

Reacting to the Huff trade

Whether you have a thousand followers or you don’t even know what a “Tweet” is, enough people have made Twitter the place to share news, info, and opinions, and the Aubrey Huff trade is no exception. In asking for reactions from Orioles fans, Twitter allowed me to poll opinions from fans well beyond the ballpark, and the following are a few of the responses O’s

Fans enjoy Orioles Q&A’s at the ESPN Zone

The ESPN Zone hosted another Orioles Q&A and autograph session today, this time welcoming O’s young arm Brad Bergesen. Bergesen appeared to take the afternoon in stride, as his fellow young O’s have done during various appearances this season. They seem to be a group of “kids” who have it together, and fans are definitely taking notice. In gauging fans’ reactions today, most O’s fans

Lunch at Wendy’s with O’s reliever Brian Bass (Updated)

Plenty of promotions during the O’s next homestand

July was a quiet and lonely month around Camden Yards. If you’d have asked anyone who worked in the Warehouse, they would have told you it felt like “forever since the team has been home” at just about any point during those 31 days. The Orioles were in town for just nine days that entire month, with the All-Star break punctuating the absence of the

Christina Markakis to promote Right Side Foundation at Camden Yards

You might remember back in March when Nick Markakis and his wife Christina announced the launch of their charitable foundation, The Right Side Foundation, which they explained was dedicated to helping distressed children across the state of Maryland. As the Foundation’s first big event, The Right Side Foundation’s 5K Run and One-Mile Fun Walk, draws nearer, Christina will be doing her part to promote both

Former catcher Mickey Tettleton, outfielder Mike Devereaux and pitchers Dave

Steve Johnson scheduled to start Saturday at Fenway (Updated)

New Oriole Steve Johnson’s first outing with the organization was a pretty quick turnaround with an unfortunately quick ending. Johnson didn’t join the Baysox until the evening before his first start with the club--without wasting any time, he took the mound during his first full day with Bowie and pitched 4 ½ innings, all in the rain, before the grounds crew pulled out the tarp

OPACY vs Fenway

Looking out over Eutaw Street from the catwalk that connects Aramark to the Club Level of the ballpark this past weekend, I had to shake my head at the sheer smattering of red. “I can fly here, stay in a hotel and get better seats for the same price I can see at game at Fenway,” one Red Sox fan told me. Does that make
