  1. Anyone willing and able to help out an old friend with an online feed? I'm stuck with a useless MLB.tv account and an even more useless Reds-Rangers series on the tube.
  2. I’m not sure where to start or what to say. Death does that. Those of us who have had the pleasure to meet Mike Flanagan will always have the stories – some told second-hand – and we will remember his kindness and his love of a city that adopted him as one of our own. He was a man many knew simply by one name. Before him, there was Brooks and then there was Elrod, Eddie and Cal, too. To all of us who love the Orioles, Mike Flanagan was simply “Flanny.” Tonight has been very difficult for all of us. I don’t like to cry in public, but I am not ashamed on this night. Rest in peace.
  3. Looks like Frederick pitching coach Blaine Beatty will also represent the Orioles in Scottsdale. Check out the complete roster
  4. According to Jeff Zrebiec, there will be eight:
  5. I'll have more later, but Austin Urban just told me during our phone conversation that Baltimore's final offer was $175,000. He was looking for something "more in the 2's."
  6. If the Orioles' recent trends are any indication, he could report to Aberdeen to "work out" like Matt Wieters and Brian Matusz did in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Both Wieters and Matusz were not active while with the Ironbirds, but they took part in team activities, traveled, etc.
  7. ORIOLES: Roberts 2B Markakis RF Wigginton 3B Scott 1B Jones CF Pie LF Wieters C Patterson DH Izturis SS Arrieta P LOS ANGELES ANGELS: Aybar SS Izturis 2B Abreu LF Hunter RF Matsui DH Callaspo 3B Kendrick 1B Mathis C Bourjos CF Haren P
  8. Roberts has left the game with a left shin contusion. Lugo is in at second base.
  9. Grounds crew is removing the tarp right now.
  10. Here are tonight's lineups fresh from Camden Yards. I'll be filling in for Paul through Saturday. ORIOLES: Roberts 2B Markakis RF Wigginton 1B Scott DH Jones CF Pie LF Wieters C Bell 3B Izturis SS Matusz P LOS ANGELES ANGELS: Aybar SS Izturis 3B Abreu DH Hunter RF Kendrick 2B Rivera LF Napoli 1B Mathis C Bourjos CF Santana P
  11. I realize I might be stating the obvious here, but Baysox manager Brad Komminsk just confirmed that Pelzer is scheduled to join Double-A Bowie on Friday. Komminsk wasn't sure if Pelzer would be used as a starter or reliever. Pitching coach Kennie Steenstra still had yet to be officially briefed on Pelzer when I caught up with him following Thursday's game, but told me to check back with him on Friday.
  12. Hoes has officially been transferred back to Frederick.
  13. I asked Komminsk if there was a possibility Hoes stays with Bowie for more than three days. He said "as of now" it's only a three-day assignment. Guzman will head to New York on Tuesday and is expected back by Thursday when the Baysox begin a four-game series with New Britain at Prince George's Stadium. He made his home in Tampa, Fla. for a few years before relocating to the Bronx this past offseason. Congratulations to Joel, by the way.

    Hoes to Bowie

    Just confirmed with Baysox manager Brad Komminsk that L.J. Hoes will join the team for its three-game road trip in Akron this week. Hoes will take the roster spot of Joel Guzman, who is traveling to New York to finalize his United States naturalization process. I'll have more later. Thanks to OH Keys beat writer Adam Vencill for providing the tip.
  15. Well, here's more to be concerned about: "Rendon was caught in rundown and tried to cut back toward 1st base. His right leg bent underneath him as he was tagged out. Writhed in pain." Source: Baseball America's Aaron Fitt
  16. Zach told me over the phone today that, as of now, he'll be inserted into the last slot in Norfolk's rotation once the second half begins. That means he's not scheduled to start again until next Monday. "They have some things they want to see play out," Britton said. "They told me just be ready to throw in that last slot, enjoy the Futures Game and we’ll see what happens." I'll have a brief story on Zach's trip to Anaheim on the front page later today.
  17. Just received the release: Scott to 15-day DL Josh Bell has been recalled
  18. He just reeeeeally wanted to be Hangout Player of the Night, didn't he?
  19. Buck Britton committed an error with two outs, but Moreau escaped without yielding a hit.
  20. The move will not become official until Wednesday when LHP Rick Zagone is promoted from Frederick to make the start for the Baysox.
  21. Just checked Norfolk's schedule... Britton will make his Triple-A debut at Harbor Park on Thursday night.
  22. Left-hander Zach Britton received word from Orioles director of player development John Stockstill during Monday's Baysox doubleheader that he has been promoted to Triple-A Norfolk. He will join the Tides on Tuesday in Charlotte and make his Triple-A debut on Thursday. EDIT: Reaction from Britton and Baysox coaches can be found HERE
