Congratulations to Chris Davis, Adam Jones, and JJ Hardy for winning Silver Slugger awards!
Congratulations to JJ Hardy, Adam Jones, and Manny Machado for winning gold glove awards!
The Orioles have named Dave Wallace as the new head pitching coach. Welcome to Birdland, Dave!
The Orioles this year set an MLB record for the best fielding percentage ever (.991 percent). They had 119 errorless games, and only committed 54 errors all season long. It makes sense that the best defensive team in the history of baseball be recognized for it, and that they are. The Orioles have a major league leading SIX finalists for the Rawlings Gold Glove awards this year! Congratulations to Nick Markakis, Chris Davis, Adam Jones, Matt Wieters, JJ Hardy, and Manny Machado!
Winners will be announced on Tuesday at 8pm on ESPN2. Good luck Os!
Manny Machado left today’s game with an injury to his left knee. Thoughts and prayers going out for a speedy recovery.
A new Oriole holds the record for most home runs hit in a single season. Congratulations, Crush Davis!!!
…is now tied with Brady Anderson for first on the Orioles’ all time home run list with 50.
And the best part? He’s not done yet.
Chris Davis crushes home run #49, tying Frank Robinson for second on the club’s all time record. Just one more and he’ll tie Brady Anderson. Think he can do it? Or rather, just how high will the club record be after Crush finishes the year?
The Yankees are coming to town starting tonight. Time to remind them that this is OUR yard! Paint the yard orange and be as loud as you can, Birdland! We’re ahead of them in the standings, so don’t let them forget it!
And as always, let’s go O’s!!!
Congratulations to Scott Feldman on his first career complete game shutout in the Orioles’ 4-0 win over the Chicago White Sox!
Cheer up, Birdland! The Orioles finally remembered how to win again. Wei-Yin Chen pitched 7 solid innings as he led his team to victory, with a little help from teammate Crush Davis along the way (#46!). Tommy Hunter was credited with the save, but only because catchers aren’t able to get credited with saves. Why other teams still think it’s a good idea to run on Matt Wieters, I’ll never understand, nor will I complain. If you want to challenge Wieters’s arm or Hardy’s tags, go right on ahead. I’ll just be over here laughing hysterically at your expense.
The O’s have Thursday off, but will be right back in the thick of it Friday night as they try to gain some ground in the wildcard race when they face off against the Oakland Athletics. Enjoy your off day, Birdland, and go O’s!
In the latest episode of “Which Formerly Good Player Has New York Obtained Now?” Mark Reynolds signed a contract with the Yankees today. Considering the fact that last season he was great against them but terrible against everyone else, I’ll enjoy seeing him add nothing but aggravating swinging strikeouts to their lineup.
I wonder if they’ll give him some playing time at 3rd to help fill the 2013 MLB blooper reel.
