The snow has already completely cleared from the ground in most parts of Baltimore, a fitting sight as we sit now less than a week from Opening Day. Now let’s push that mercury a bit further up, eh Mother Nature?
To the links…
Dylan Bundy spilled the beans in a MASN interview during yesterday’s Spring Training game between the O’s and Red Sox. Good for him! Figured it would have been Gausman again.
A hearty congrats goes out also to Brian Roberts & Fred Manfra, newest members of the O’s Hall of Fame. Whenever B.Rob comes up, the idiot haters come crawling out of the woodwork, which sent me on a bit of a tirade on Twitter yesterday.

Far from dying, baseball is raking in more money than ever. The guys in the minor leagues though, still eat ramen every night and live with local families kind enough to give them room and board during the season. It’s a disgrace. Jon Shepherd of Camden Depot goes into the economics of the exploitation.
Last year, it was Game of Thrones. This year, Star Wars. Baseball fans are, on the whole, kinda nerdy (I say this lovingly, as a fellow nerd) so it’s nice to see the Birds keep doing goofy things like this. Also…O’DAY WAN KENOBI BOBBLEHEAD!
Camden Chat’s Tyler Young throws a bit of cold water on those printing playoff tickets now that Alex Cobb is an Oriole. Jerk! (jk Ty…kinda).
