I think we have enough snow to last us until opening day, thanks to Winter Storm Jonas, which crushed the DMV area last weekend. If you want a comprehensive recap of the storm and its aftermath, check out MASN broadcaster Jim Hunter’s Twitter timeline. All of it is fantastic, but I’ll just show you my favorites. Kudos to all of our local TV reporters braving

#TBT: Jonathan Schoop clobbers 484-foot homer

At just 24, Jonathan Schoop has proven to be a strong defensive asset in the middle of the infield. He has also showcased his power. Despite being limited to 86 games in 2015, the second baseman still belted 15 homers for the Birds. And were any of his home runs more impressive than his mammoth bomb off Johnny Cueto at Kauffman Stadium? Schoop got all

Out of the Park: Welcome back, Crush!

Obviously, the big news this week was first baseman Chris Davis re-signing with the Orioles. The seven-year contract was reported as a done deal early Saturday morning before becoming official with a press conference last night at Camden Yards after Davis psased a physical. But before we get to the best of #WelcomeBackCrush, I think it’s important to note that the MASN family spends its

#TBT: Four homers lead Orioles to win over Jays

If you’re anything like me, you love a good pitchers’ duel. You know, the games that are knotted up at 0-0 or sit at 1-0 into the late innings. Well, today ... we’re not looking back at that. In fact, it’s pretty much the opposite. If I’m not watching the low-scoring games I generally prefer, there’s nothing that can top huge home runs. Now let’s

#TBT: Mike Wright dazzles in “delicious” debut

Happy 2016, Birdland! A new year is upon us, which means we’re one step closer to another season of Orioles baseball. Yep, just a little more than a month until pitchers and catchers report!
