Orioles have reportedly made an offer to outfielder Yasiel Puig

Puig, 29, has spent his fair share of time on the open market, with his free agency extended due to the roster freeze enforced during MLB’s shutdown in the spring.

With less than two weeks until Opening Day the O’s roster is filling up.

Good morning, Birdland!

The Orioles 60-man roster is inching closer to actually having 60 players on it, and we are beginning to see some of the young players join the fold.

Ryan Mountcastle joined the squad earlier this week and has taken part in a few exhibition games. Where he begins the regular season has not been determined, but odds are that he will not be a big leaguer just...

The Orioles had only one real choice to be their Opening Day starter and that’s who they picked: 2019’s fun surprise, John Means.

With two weeks to go until Opening Day for the abbreviated 2020 season, we now know who will be making the start for the Orioles. The news will not be a surprise to anyone who watched the team’s starting pitchers in 2020. The Opening Day starter is John Means.

The fact that choosing Means was pretty much the only...

Friday Bird Droppings: Where we’re looking ahead to 2021

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The truncated 2020 season hasn’t started yet, but the Orioles unveiled their 2021 schedule that includes a full 162 games. Let’s hope it plays out that way.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

The Orioles and MLB are still on track to begin the 2020 season two weeks from today. But it’s never too early to start looking forward to next year (for a lot of reasons).

The O’s released their 2021 schedule yesterday, and my, it’s certainly refreshing to see a...

MLB has released its 2021 schedule before the 2020 season has even had a chance to begin. The Orioles are opening on the road.

We’re still in the same week where MLB released its 2020 schedule and they’ve now announced the 2021 schedule, or at least the first, planned hope for a regular-length 162 games.

The big thing for the Orioles is that they will have Opening Day on the road on...

Thursday Bird Droppings: The Orioles intrasquad hype edition

The Orioles played an intrasquad game yesterday with invisible fielders. They also added Ryan Mountcastle to their player pool.

Hello, friends.

There are now 15 days remaining until the Orioles scheduled opener in the abbreviated 2020 regular season. I say scheduled because who knows if something else crazy might happen, but so far multiple teams having testing delays and workouts canceled hasn’t been enough to knock the plan off course.

Perhaps if...

The Orioles signed more draft picks and GM Mike Elias spoke on the team’s coronavirus policy.

Good morning, Birdland!

Workouts at Camden Yards are in full swing for now as the coronavirus cloud looms in the background. The coverage of the practices and intra-squads has been fairly limited to some long-distance photos and shaky videos. According to MASN’s Roch Kubatko, the Orioles will not be broadcasting anything until the regular season.

That is kind of...

Top 50 Orioles of All Time: #43, Harold Baines

A professional hitter known for his unflappable demeanor, clutch hitting and consistency, Baines has earned recognition as an all time Orioles great.

As a grade schooler in the summer of 1998, I was bewildered by a hot take from an older relative of mine during a family gathering. We had the Orioles game on the television in the background — as was common at those events — and while discussing the team he told me we needed to shake up the roster by...

Tuesday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles schedule is out

We now know when and where the O’s will play their 60 games this season, though recent events make it increasingly unlikely they’ll play any at all.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

Yesterday, the 2020 baseball season took another step closer to becoming reality, as MLB unveiled the revised 60-game schedule for all 30 teams. The season will kick off July 23 with four teams in action — the Yankees, Nationals, Giants, and Dodgers — and the other 26,...

The Orioles will start and end the shortened 2020 season on the road. It’s going to get weird.

At long last, there’s an official place and date for the Orioles to begin their 2020 season, assuming nothing happens between now and then to cause further problems and change MLB’s plans. The 60-game schedule begins on July 24 with the O’s in Boston. They’ll follow with two games against...
