You may have heard that the Orioles emerged from their winter hibernation yesterday and actually signed a pitcher. Let’s talk about that – and some other stuff – in today’s O’s Links. Here’s hopin’ Cashner negotiated an exemption from the Orioles’ stupid archaic facial hair policy that allows him to keep that sweet beard.

Happy first Friday of Spring Training, Birdland.

The Orioles are Paying Money to Andrew Cashner

Jeff Sullivan writing about the Orioles? Be still my heart. If you’re looking for fancy-stat reasons to be bullish on Cashner…look elsewhere! It’s not all bad though.

Andrew Cashner: The Typical Orioles Acquisition

Whereas Sullivan tore you down only to build you back up again at the end, Baltimore Sports and Life’s Rob Shields goes the other way, making you want to cry into your O’s hoodie by the end of his Cashner analysis. Happy Friday to you too, Rob!

Pod 256: Cashner Signs, Birdland Responds

In a special edition of Section 336, Josh had on a bunch of different O’s fans/bloggers to get reactions to the Cashner signing. He was nice enough to invite me, as well as other ESR writers such as Ryan Blake, Andrew Stetka, & Paul Valle, along with other voices from the Bird O’sphere. Give a listen to get you through this dreary Friday morning.

Thoughts on O’s Signing of Andrew Cashner

Sensing a trend here? Dan Connolly of Baltimore Baseball gives his thoughts on the Cashner signing as well.

Andrew Cashner is Pretty Pretty Pretty OK

Alright, last Cashner link for today, promise. According to Camden Depot’s proprietary BORAS contract projection system, the O’s may have gotten a pretty good deal with Andrew. Rejoice!

I’m assuming  you’re sufficiently Cashed out by now, amirite? Good, that means my job here is finished.

Hopefully on Monday we can round up five links for ANOTHER new O’s pitcher.
