Why the Ravens will survive offseason purge

July 01, 2013 | Jeffrey Gilley

I just finished celebrating the Super Bowl victory when the Ravens began losing players. Some were to retirement while others were just released or traded. The losses include Carry Williams, Paul Kruger, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard, Ma’ake Kemoeatu, and Dannell Ellerbe. At first, this was troubling but Ozzie Newsome had a plan and [...]

What’s the Rush?

What’s the Rush?

August 09, 2012 | Brett Dickinson

The Orioles called up Manny Machado (a well-known name here in Baltimore), the #3 rated prospect in baseball, for Thursday’s game versus the Royals. But was the move in relation to his personal performance or a drastic measure by a desperate team. There is a list of reasons why Machado will be in Camden Yards [...]

NBC’s Epic Fail

August 06, 2012 | Brett Dickinson

The Olympics, on video alone, have been everything anyone could ask for; excitement, drama, scandal and glory wrapped into about a half a month. The ratings have done well, while a rivalry has brewed between the U.S.A and China; other than politics and general stance of human decency. We have seen history made with Phelps, [...]

Cost-Effective Options for the O’s at the Deadline

July 26, 2012 | Brett Dickinson

With the deadline fastly approaching, the Orioles need to make another couple moves to ensure they continue in the playoff race throughout September. Still clinging to the final Wild Card spot, Baltimore should definitely be buyers this week, especially with a chance to make the playoffs since the Mid-90’s. Duquette already proved he was ready [...]

The cautionary tale with Orioles prospects

July 25, 2012 | Mark Brown

The Orioles seem to get at least a token mention as being on the periphery of talks for nearly every player that’s been known to be available on the midseason trade market. What’s really going on? No one can answer for the bizarrely-successful (thus far) plans of Dan Duquette except for Duquette himself. One thing [...]

Chee’s POD’s & O’s Preview for July 24th, 2012

July 24, 2012 | Chris Cichon

In an attempt to preface my Baseball Plays of the Day, let me begin by saying I have placed bets on baseball games only a handful of times in my life. Most of the instances occured at the Hard Rock Cafe Sports Book last year in Punta Cana, which was an awesome time, by the [...]

My Orioles Trip to Cleveland

July 24, 2012 | Scott Zolotorow

    I arrived home late last night from Cleveland and Pittsburgh. I took in Friday and Saturday night’s Oriole wins at Progressive Field and a game at the beautiful PNC Park Sunday afternoon. These were two more stadiums on my journey to see an official game at every MLB park, numbers 17 and 18 [...]

Reed’s Return Makes Secondary Elite

July 23, 2012 | Jeffrey Gilley

The Baltimore Ravens need Ed Reed.  Reed is widely considered the best ball-hawk the NFL has seen in sometime and his numbers reinforce that fact. But, Reed has been contemplating retirement for a few years now mainly due to a neck injury. In a recent interview, Reed said he missed mini-camps because he wanted to [...]

Duquette’s Tinkering Around the Margins

July 23, 2012 | Mark Brown

Up until this year, there had been a trend with the Orioles in the offseason and preseason to have the front office and whatever media was willing to echo their comments talking about how a few key moves would bring winning baseball back to Baltimore. “We just need to solidify the bullpen,” they might say, [...]
