Good morning, Birdland!
It’s an honor that the Orioles are going full steam ahead for the playoffs. With the roster now expanded to 28, their coaching bench is filled with more talent than in previous years. And the team seems to have a new slogan: Chaos Comin’
These two words are printed Entrance to the family club at Camden Yards and the team website. It is accompanied by an angry orioles bird with a home run chain around its neck.
It’s an ingenious brand choice that bridges the gap from reconstruction to rebirth. Until 2022, the Orioles offer “chaos” as a meme for every positive thing the team does on the court. Sweeping the Astros and Red Sox on the road last season was crazy, as was beating Shohei Ohtani to end a 19-game losing streak. Bad teams don’t usually do things like that. confusion!
This season, it took on a new meaning. Rather than just ruining a weekend for opponents, it’s been a chaotic season. A win over the Orioles is no longer guaranteed. No, the Orioles won’t just disappear from playoff discussions. The Rays, Blue Jays and Mariners will have to earn a chance to make the playoffs if they can get one. To be sure, the Blue Jays aren’t thrilled to face the Orioles 10 more times before the end of the year. confusion!
Your scoreboard viewing time today starts at 6:10, when the Yankees and Rays get into action. The continued circling of the Bronx bombers was interesting, but it was nice to see it stop over the next two days. The Blue Jays take on the Buccaneers at 6:35, then at 7:15 we’ll start the Mariners/Guardians and Twins/White Sox games.
Let’s go to O! But today also for the Yankees, Pirates, Guardians and White Sox…
For Orioles’ Tyler Wells, love of baseball and coffee go hand in hand: ‘So much fun’ | Baltimore Sun
I would love to see Wells review some chain coffee shops. He’s an avid guy and obviously takes his coffee very seriously. Let’s see how the public reacts to his cancellation of Royal Farms java.
Orioles’ Grayson Rodriguez: Move rehab to Double-A | CBS Sports
good news! It sounds like the first rehab went well. He’ll see his pitching numbers increase further and hope to secure a starting spot or two in Baltimore by the end of the season.
stand oh! Gunnar doubles MLB twice in home debut
The GUNNAR fight may still be there, but it hasn’t happened yet. What a player!
DL Hall finally arrives at the family club | Roch Kubatko
It’s almost surreal that the Orioles now have so many top prospects on the major league roster. It finally happened! And it’s entirely possible that within the next 12 months, we could also see players like Rodriguez and Colton Causer get significant time in the majors as well.
Is it your birthday? Happy birthday!
- Troy Barton is 37 years old. The southpaw was part of a return in the trade that sent Miguel Tejada to Houston, and he was later traded to the Padres in exchange for Nick Hendry. During that span, he spent five mostly solid seasons with the Orioles, posting more than 140 appearances in their bullpen with a 3.26 ERA.
- Rene Gonzales celebrates his 62nd birthday. From 1987 to 1990, he was the Orioles’ utility infielder. Defense is his calling card, as Gonzalez has an OPS of just .555 in his four seasons with the Birds.
- The late Maury Martin (d. 2010) was born on this day in 1922. The southpaw appeared in nine games for the 1956 Orioles.
- Another posthumous birthday for Sandy Consuegra (b. 1920, d. 2005). His Orioles career spanned all nine games between the 1956 and ’57 seasons.
O this day in history
1960 – The Orioles beat the Yankees 2-0 to regain the AL title. It was a rough night for home plate umpire Larry Knapp, who was hit by three fouls midway through the game and had to be replaced by Chuck Berry (not that one!).
1979 – Mike Flanagan became MLB’s first 20-game winner of the year as he completed a double-header sweep against the Toronto Blue Jays.
2012 – The Orioles were tied in a game leading the Yankees in the AL East. Joe Sanders beat Toronto 4-0, while the Rays beat the Yankees 4-3.
