Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

May 19, 2009 | Glenn Clark

With Chris Tillman and Jake Arrieta amongst the Orioles’ prospects on a blistering pace right now; it will be really difficult for fans to watch Adam Eaton go out start after start and continue to struggle. The Orioles probably want to hold off on bringing up another of their “cavalry” of pitchers until mid-to-late Summer at the earliest; but watching Adam Eaton is going to get fans a bit riled up.

I’ve been riled up since the Orioles acquired Eaton personally.

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-Heading to Owings Mills tonight to check out Ravens passing camp. With a battle for the backup QB job, it will be interesting to see what John Beck and Troy Smith show. I still get the feeling that John Beck will ultimately be the backup QB, but I think he will get the job so the Ravens can use Troy Smith in more gadget plays.

-Philadelphia has made a STRONG push to get all five Army/Navy games between 2010 and 2014; and the city of Baltimore really needs to take the push just as seriously. Terry Hasseltine was hired by the state of Maryland to bring major sporting events to the area last Summer, and so far I’ve been unmoved by what has been brought. The Chelsea-AC Milan match is a good start; but the city lost the Dew Action Sports Tour; and the future of Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour in the state is also in question. Navy/Notre Dame, Navy/Maryland, and Navy/Ohio State all have a future in Baltimore; but Army/Navy is the biggest of them all; and will generate (arguably) the most revenue for the state. With no arena to bring in NCAA Tournament events just yet, and Pimlico really only being used for Sporting Events a couple days a year; this is a significantly important event.

Talk to you tomorrow.
