Looking back at our favorite Orioles memories through Instagram

The 2013 season was another fantastic year at Camden Yards. Spending the summer days at Orioles games led to many great memories for me - Manny Machado’s spectacular plays at third base, Chris Davis’ insane year at the plate, and simply watching the sun set behind the stadium every night. On our Instagram feed, we asked you to post your favorite memories of 2013 with

Yard Work: Plan the work, work the plan, leave nothing to chance

Camden Yards is a gem, a rare baseball cathedral that blends classic, retro style with today’s version of the national pastime. But its lush outfield grass and manicured infield don’t happen by accident. They’re the result of a year-round effort by head groundskeeper Nicole McFadyen and her talented grounds crew. Each month during this offseason, Orioles Buzz will check in with McFadyen to see what’s

In O’s glory years, Blair made the impossible grabs seem routine

News tonight that former Orioles center fielder Paul Blair has died at 69 hits hard. It’s another of the players from the team’s glory years gone too soon, another piece of Baltimore baseball history we’ll no longer be able to reminisce with. I’ll remember how he glided across the outfield green on 33rd Street, making the impossible seem routine. And the smile perpetually on his

Weekly Wrap: O’s offseason picking up, but not without problems

After a slow Winter Meetings, the Orioles’ offseason seemed to pick up. However, it has not been without bumps in the road. To fill the void left by Jim Johnson, the Orioles sought out Grant Balfour.

Throwback Thursday: Saying farewell to B-Rob

Earlier this week, Brian Roberts agreed to a one-year contract with the Yankees, ending his time in Baltimore. Roberts was drafted by the Orioles in the 1999 First-Year Player Draft and went on to become a two-time All-Star and a career .278/.349/.412 hitter in 13 seasons. To honor B-Rob’s career with the Orioles, we’re throwin’ it back to one of his most memorable moments from

Weekly Wrap: O’s leave Florida without making big move

The Winter Meetings have come and gone. While Dan Duquette said Monday that the Orioles “should be adding more players by the end of the week,” they returned from Florida with just two Rule 5 draft picks. Although rumors swirling around had the Birds linked with many names, including Raul Ibanez and Nelson Cruz, they left without much to show. In an attempt to fill

Get to know the Orioles’ newest Rule 5 acquisition

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The Orioles selected third baseman Michael Almanzar during Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft. So who is this guy? First and foremost, he’s the Orioles’ latest Rule 5 acquisition. Almanzar was signed by the Boston Red Sox as a non-tender free agent back in 2007 and the 23-year-old has spent his entire career in the Sox’ farm system. Now he’s heading south

Throwback Thursday: Manny’s monster smash

Many Orioles fans have felt a little more anxiety and frustration this week because the team has yet to make a big move at the Winter Meetings. With that said, this week’s Throwback Thursday is dedicated to giving fans a little pick-me-up with a small dose of Orioles magic. Early in the season, the Birds were trailing 5-3 headed into the top of the ninth

Winter Meetings sets baseball apart from the rest

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - There’s really no way to describe the Winter Meetings to someone who doesn’t follow baseball and have it sound....sexy. Family or friends who aren’t into sports hear what goes on and they generally react with the same half-hearted response. “Ohh, that’s sounds, um, fun.” I guess it’s not totally their fault. Describing the logistics and setup of the Winter Meetings

Weekly Wrap: Hot stove heating up during week before Winter Meetings

It’s the first week of December, and there are obviously no major league games right now. However, there has been so much news surrounding baseball and the Orioles this week. Huge deals have occurred, including Robinson Cano to the Mariners and Jacoby Ellsbury to the Yankees. Within the Orioles organization, there have been many moves as well, highlighted by Jim Johnson being traded to the

Throwback Thursday: Johnson’s last save with the Birds

The big news of the week was the Orioles’ trade that sent Jim Johnson to the Atheltics in exchange for infielder Jemile Weeks and a player to be named. Many Baltimore fans were sad to see the closer go after back-to-back seasons with at least 50 saves. In honor of Johnson’s time with the Birds, we’re throwin’ it back to his 50th save of the
