Possible Mark Hendrickson Comeback?

Did I miss this?

He had a tryout w/ the team on Monday and is supposed to pitch again today.

After spending 2013 in the Orioles' minor league system, he played independant ball last season for the York Revolution. With the Revolution he posted a 1.54 ERA in 55 appearances. Using a sidearm delivery

suggested to him by Baltimore manager Buck Showalter, Hendrickson reached out to Showalter recently and asked him for a tryout.

He threw in front of members of the Orioles staff on Monday and will take the mound again on Wednesday. It's Hendrickson's opportunity, maybe his last one, to show what he can do. If he impresses, he could earn an invite to spring training.

It must be a Bel Air thing, because I was going to mention the same story. There wasn't much to do around Red Pump road fifteen years ago, so we had to pass time. We used to drive by this kids house every day and scream "Egg" at the top of our lungs, simply because this kid had a head shaped like an egg. Day, night, about a dozen of us did it. Then his father saw me in a grocery store and threatened to kill me, so I spread the word to stop. We deserved it, because being woken up with shouts of "Egg" at midnight can't be fun. I spent a lot of time analyzing Orioles players based on similar characteristics. Mark is the height of Randy Johnson, has the velocity of Jamie Moyer, and the results of Steve Sparks. Love the guy, but in the last six years he pitched combined he has a WAR of .2.

I guess what I'm saying is that there must be something in the water in Harford County, because I always liked Mark Hendrickson. As a matter of fact, I think an alarm went off in Mark Hendrickson's house, and he just woke up saying "People are talking about me, they really are"!

I hope he gets a shot in AAA in case we have ten injuries or so in our bullpen, in which case he would have some hope to pitch an inning or two.

I had to read this three times. You're drunk, and I want in.
