Out of the Park: Christmas trees, Twitter changes and charity work

To start off this week’s edition of Out of the Park, I first want to give thanks to the Winter Meetings last week for taking on the majority of the social media buzz. Although it was mostly just rumors, they took up most of your attention on the Twittersphere, blogosphere or whatever sphere you prefer. That being said, let’s get to what some Orioles were

#TBT: O’Day, O’Day!

Welcome back to our #TBT posts, and welcome back, Darren O’Day! This week, the Orioles held a press conference to announce the re-signing of the veteran reliever. After pitching to a 1.52 ERA in 2015, O’Day agreed to a four-year, $31 million deal with the O’s. In welcoming back the sidearmer, we’re bringing back one of his signature moments from last season. The Orioles had

Winter Meetings: Wrapping up early for O’s FanFest

You may have noticed that I didn’t file my blog post from Nashville yesterday. As soon as I shot Dan Duquette’s interview, I hopped on a plane for a flight home to prepare for O’s FanFest. While I left a day early - and with lots of leftover editing work for my colleague, Bobby Blanco - I still had a full experience at the Winter

Winter Meetings: Day 2 winding down for Orioles

NASHVILLE - Before we get to the baseball updates, a personal note: I only got lost in the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center about seven times today. New record! Wandering from place to place around the hotel today, I was able to be behind the scenes for some very cool interviews and baseball moments. First of all, manager Buck Showalter joined MLB Network’s

Winter Meetings: Rumors abuzz on Day 1

NASHVILLE - Day 1 of the Winter Meetings - and my energy - are fading fast. My day was kicked off with Steve Melewski’s interview with MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds and never slowed down. One latte all day, Olivia? A big mistake, but we’ll try better tomorrow. The first day featured a lobby full of chatter and rumors. Buzz from earlier today. As you probably

The MASNsports.com Web team arrived to the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center this afternoon, ready (or not) for a week of rumors, press conferences and baseball buzz.

Out of the Park: Crazy finishes, the “Hot Stove Show” and a thank you note

I hope everyone enjoyed their extended weekend over the Thanksgiving holiday surrounded by friends, family and delicious food. My favorite dish from last weekend was my grandmother’s chorizo stuffing, with my aunt’s green bean casserole topped with crispy onions as my sleeper pick. This was actually a baseball-packed week with the non-tender deadline on Wednesday night and Winter Meetings a mere three days away. And

#TBT: David Lough’s walk-off homer gives O’s win over Red Sox

The Orioles had a very busy day Wednesday, from officially announcing they traded for Mark Trumbo and C.J. Riefenhauser to acquiring catcher Francisco Pena from Kansas City to tendering contracts to eight arbitration-eligible players. However, the team did not tender contracts to three arbitration-eligible players: Steve Johnson, Paul Janish and David Lough. All three are now free agents. Reflecting on last season, one of
