Thursday Bird Droppings: Reading the Orioles coaching staff tea leaves

The Orioles announced minor league coaching staffs yesterday. Buck Britton moves up again. Is there another move in his future?

Hello, friends.

Two months and four days remain until the next scheduled Orioles game, which is Opening Day. Will it happen on that day? Eh. There’s been a little movement this week in the sense that the sides have actually traded offers and talked, but it doesn’t sound like we’re on a steady path...

The Orioles officially announced their minor league coaches for the coming season, including a previously-reported promotion for Buck Britton.

Some day hopefully soon, the best things that are going on with the Orioles organization will be visible at the major league level. That hasn’t been the case since Mike Elias...

Retro Orioles recap: O’s blank Dodgers again, now one win from WS sweep

The Orioles took a commanding three-game advantage with a shutout from Wally Bunker and a solo home run by Paul Blair.

Wally Bunker entered Game 3 of the World Series with a tough act to follow. Just two days after 20-year-old Jim Palmer bested Cy Young winner Sandy Koufax, Bunker made his own mark in the Fall Classic.

Bunker went the distance in a shutout effort that brought the Orioles to within one game of their first World Series championship. Paul...

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Labor talks moving along at a snail’s pace

The two sides are getting closer, but it sure is taking a while.

Good morning, Birdland!

Major League Baseball and the Players Association have increased the frequency with which they are meeting. That’s nice, and would seem to indicate that we will have a season in 2022. But the rate at which the two sides are getting closer makes it seem like it will not be a full 162-game campaign.

January is almost over. Pitchers and catchers are...

Thoughts about the Hall of Fame and the Orioles

Oriole fans had little stake in Tuesday’s Hall of Fame announcement. The only two with Oriole ties on the 30-player ballot were Curt Schilling and Sammy Sosa, who had only brief runs here and weren’t expected to be elected.

Baseball’s all-time leader in televised mid-game stadium vandalism, David Ortiz, will be headed to Cooperstown this summer.

A baseball player whose career is best known for the time he reacted to being called out on strikes, whining about it, getting ejected, then taking his bat and destroying a dugout phone at Oriole Park at Camden Yards was elected to the...

Announcement: A new commenting system is coming to Camden Chat

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Coming Thursday, comments will look different.

Hey everyone. I’m Tanya, and I oversee all of our baseball communities for SB Nation.

This Thursday will be a big day for our community: we’re moving our comments to a new platform, developed especially for SB Nation. All of our MLB communities will be moving to the new platform, and I’m excited about the change.

Some of you may already be familiar with this new platform as it rolled out to our NFL...

Tuesday Bird Droppings: MLB negotiations are picking up pace, maybe

Talks between MLB and the MLBPA may have made some headway yesterday, with another meeting on the docket for today.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

We’re nearly two months into the MLB lockout and there is still no imminent accord between the league and the Players’ Association on a new collective bargaining agreement. But if you squint, there are signs of...

Janet Marie Smith talks about 30 years of Camden Yards

It’s hard for Janet Marie Smith to believe that it’s been 30 years since Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened. Back then there was no park like it and, in many ways, that’s still true.

Retro Orioles recap: O’s take command of World Series with Game 2 victory for 2-0 lead

Jim Palmer outshines Sandy Koufax, tosses shutout to help Orioles return home halfway to first world championship.

If there was one factor heading into Game 2 of the World Series that seemed to be decisively against the Orioles, it was the starting pitching matchup.

The Dodgers gave the ball to Sandy Koufax, the game’s best pitcher and the winner of two of the last three National League Cy Young Awards — it might be three out of the last four when this year is over — and an ace who has...

The Orioles have had their top hitting prospects in a minicamp this weekend, with a 2021 draft-heavy minicamp set to open up tomorrow.

Hello, friends.

There are now two months and one week remaining until the next scheduled Orioles game, which is Opening Day. Whether that actually happens as scheduled is another story. Some baseball...

Major League Baseball’s labor dispute is hurting the game

Spring training for the Orioles is scheduled to begin in just over three weeks, February 15th, in Sarasota, Florida, and an on-time start isn’t looking promising.

All eyes on are on the prospects as spring training draws ever closer.

Good morning, Birdland!

Baseball is being played at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota this weekend. The Orioles spring training home is hosting a minicamp with some the organization’s top prospects outside of the 40-man roster. The camp is being run by Brandon Hyde, a few members of his staff, and Norfolk skipper Buck Britton.

It’s exciting to have any baseball news to...

Which Orioles prospects could be top 100 list-worthy this time next year?

Photo by Mitchell Layton/Getty Images

It’s top prospect list season. There’s some consensus the Orioles have five top 100 guys. Who could play onto those lists for 2023?

This week’s release of Baseball America’s Top 100 Prospects and The Baseball Prospectus Top 101 has made this something of a top prospect list season. The Orioles organization placed the same five prospects on each of these lists at different spots: Adley Rutschman (BA’s #1, BP’s #2), Grayson Rodriguez (BA #6, BP...

An interview with the Orioles’ Grayson Rodriguez, baseball’s top pitching prospect

Grayson Rodriguez was the Orioles’ top draft choice in 2018. Last season, he was dominant at High-A Aberdeen and Double A-Bowie (9-1, 2.36 ERA, 161 strikeouts, 27 walks in 103 innings).

Baseball Prospectus followed Baseball America’s lead in placing five Orioles in its Top 100 prospects list. Very nice.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

If you’ll allow me to be controversial for a moment, I think it’s a good thing when your baseball team has a very talented minor league system. (Yeah, that’s right, I went out on that limb.)

Retro Orioles recap: Orioles open World Series with 5-2 win over Dodgers

SetNumber: X11946

Frank Robinson put the Birds up early, and Moe Drabowsky was dominant in relief.

This game took place on October 5, 1966. It is being recapped today as part of Camden Chat’s retro recap series while MLB is on hold due to the lockout.

For the first time since the franchise moved to Baltimore, the Orioles had won the pennant and had a shot at a World Series title. But the team in their way were the juggernaut Los Angeles Dodgers, with their star-studded pitching...
