I was thinking about this the other day. The Orioles usually show up on Opening Day and even before Buck, I think they win most of their 1st games.

8:44am: Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill announced to reporters that Straily has been released by the organization (Twitter link via Joe Frisaro of MLB.com). He’ll receive the aforementioned 45 days’ termination pay and can now sign with any club for any amount of money (on top of that termination pay from Miami).
