Pick your own promotion

The Orioles have released their 2010 schedule, but you might have noticed the absence of the familiar little white boxes with asterisks in them, which signify a promotion at Oriole Park during that day’s game. So while the schedule might be out, next year’s promotions are far from set in stone. The Orioles featured some pretty good promos this year. Remember the... -Six T-Shirt Tuesdays

Same deal - Matusz is the real deal

You’ve heard it a hundred times and from every beat writer or media outlet that covers the Orioles: Brian Matusz is the real deal. And the reason you’ve heard it a hundred times: Spend 10 minutes with the young left-hander and you’re blown away by Matusz’s poise, confidence, and ease in a situation most 22-year-olds (hey, most anyone) wouldn’t find as effortless as Matusz. The

A Baker’s Dozen

Including this weekend’s series against the Texas Rangers, the Orioles have a mere 13 home games left in 2009. It’s usually about this time each year that I realize there really aren’t that many more chances to catch a game at the Yard before a long winter without the O’s.
