Well Birdland, we made it. It was a long, arduous, and infuriating few months of baseball, but we’re at the All-Star break and hey! We have back-to-back wins to keep us cozy in our memories for the next four days.
Let’s check out the good, the bad, and the ugly from the O’s blog-O-verse.
Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun with an awesome feature on the Birds’ lone All-Star.
BSL’s Chris Stoner asks a ton of questions about the Orioles of the near future. Plenty to chew on over the all-star break for fans and front office alike, for sure.
Included in Mark Brown of Camden Chat’s discussion of Ken Rosenthal’s report over the weekend is the tidbit that Peter Angelos is “philosophically opposed to selling.” Good times! I’m philosophically opposed to my team’s owner continually meddling in baseball operations. If Dan & Buck (and Brady, I guess) decide that selling is the best move (it probably is), than they should have free reign to do it as they see fit.
Adam Brett Walker, that is. So that’s…encouraging?
For the second straight year, Chance had himself a day at the Futures Game. As for Tanner Scott…well, he did what he does: threw hard.
