The Orioles enter what was supposed to be the first weekend of the season, but instead they are at home with the rest of the world.

Good morning, Birdland!

It appears that Major League Baseball is doing what it can to plan for the unknowable future. Baseball is unlikely to be played this month or next, but the league remains hopeful that they will have a season of some sort in 2020.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan provided all of the details of an...

Retro Orioles recap: Birds rally in ninth, clinch first of doubleheader in extras

Photo by Focus On Sport/Getty Images

After Curt Motton evened the score in the bottom of the ninth, Brooks Robinson blasted a solo shot that clinched game one of a doubleheader against the Red Sox.

This game took place on May 24, 1970. It is being recapped today as part of Camden Chat’s retro recap series while MLB is on hold due to coronavirus.

As far as I’m concerned, there is no such thing as “too much baseball.” There may come a day when everyone takes the game for granted,...

Remembering my biggest Orioles heartbreaks as a fan

The sports shutdown has led fans and media to come up with all sorts of lists to provide entertainment and kill a few hours. Twitter is filled with them. You can't swing a dead opening day article without hitting one. I'm more of a lurker than a participant, but I ... Read More

Friday Bird Droppings: Where baseball should have started yesterday

Two Orioles fans stand outside a vacant Camden Yards, and...wait a minute, those are my parents! Hi, Mom and Dad! | Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

March 26 was supposed to be Opening Day for the 2020 MLB season. As you may have heard, that didn’t happen.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

So, how did you all endure Non-Opening Day yesterday? I have to admit, I found it a little rough.

In my household — as I’m sure it is in many of yours, too — Opening Day is a holiday. It’s a glorious...

Orioles Opening Day (at home) retro game thread: The Delmon Double game

Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images

MLB is celebrating Opening Day At Home by streaming some classic games - including the Delmon Double game.

The original plan for today would have had a lot of people cramming into Camden Yards to see the beginning of another Orioles season. The coronavirus had other plans and now most of us are sitting at home without much in the way of outside stimulus.

With so many people cooped up and no live baseball, MLB has organized what they’re calling Opening Day...

Thursday Bird Droppings: The day that would have been Opening Day

There won’t be even this sparse of a crowd today. | Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images

There was once going to be Orioles baseball today. Now, there probably won’t be any until at least after May.

Hello, friends.

Welcome to another day where most of regular life is on hold in order to combat the spread of the coronavirus. I’m sure I’m not the only one experiencing a feeling where time and days of the week are really blending together. It’s hard to really get a handle on the idea...

Getting ready for a special Opening Day

It’s a gorgeous afternoon for baseball at Camden Yards, and the Orioles and Yankees are getting ready for Thursday’s opener. No, there isn’t any real baseball in Baltimore during this coronavirus pandemic, but there will be baseball on my dining room table thanks to Strat-O-Matic, the tabletop baseball game that has been part of my life for four decades. As families try to sort out a new normal amid this coronavirus shutdown, we have turned — or I should say returned — to...

Retro Orioles recap: Frank Robinson’s walk-off home run lifts O’s past Royals

Slugger slams three-run shot with two out in the bottom of the ninth as the Birds stun the hapless Royals.

This game took place on May 7, 1970. It is being recapped today as part of Camden Chat’s retro recap series while MLB is on hold due to coronavirus.

The Baltimore Orioles were down. As the Kansas City Royals found out, they were not out.

A team rarely is when Frank Robinson gets a chance to say something about it.

Robinson continued his torrid...

Reflecting on past spring trainings with the Orioles

Five Oriole questions from four weeks of spring training

Opening Day would have been just one day away. It’s uncertain when the real opener will be played because we don’t know when, or even if, baseball will be given the all-clear to return in 2020. Let’s assume the game will be back. Here are five Oriole questions to ponder. Can Chris Davis keep it up? One of the positive stories of the spring was Davis’ reemergence, at least for the first three weeks of games. Davis, who was driving to Fort Myers for the March 12 game against the...

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Where this was supposed to be the last day without Orioles baseball

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

We are all doing what we can to stay in baseball-viewing shape.

Good morning, Birdland!

As we all remain in limbo regarding the future of professional baseball and society at large I have discovered a few different ways to get my baseball fix. I thought it would be nice to share them here, and if any of you have additional options feel free to share them in the comments.

OK then, here we go:

Big Mike had a big year in 2019

In 2019, Orioles pitching prospect Michael Baumann had a special year.

He shared the Jim Palmer Award with Single-A Delmarva's Grayson Rodriguez. For an encore, Baumann ... Read More

Broadcaster Geoff Arnold is eager to bring his voice to the Orioles’ 2020 season

On Monday, Geoff Arnold would have boarded his first Orioles’ team flight, bound for Baltimore and his initial regular-season game on Thursday. Before that, the Orioles were scheduled for a game at the Naval Academy with the New York Mets. The coronavirus pandemic changed all that. Instead, Arnold has spent an extended time catching up with his parents at their Berwyn, Pennsylvania home. Arnold, who had spent five years calling games for the Orioles’ High-A affiliate in Frederick, had...

Tuesday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles are missing out on fun stuff

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The O’s were originally supposed to play an exhibition at the U.S. Naval Academy today to wrap up their spring training slate. Alas.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

Have you heard? There isn’t any baseball going on right now. Weird, right?

It’s now been 12 days since spring training was canceled and the 2020 MLB season was put on indefinite hiatus. Opening Day, which was to commence two days from now, is on hold, unlikely to occur until June at the...

Who is your #17 prospect in the Orioles system for 2020? (poll)

Photo by G Fiume/Getty Images

Baseball is on hold, so there’s plenty of time to talk about Orioles prospects we hope to get to see eventually.

The fates of the Orioles farm system or any of the prospects in it now are not among the greatest concerns for the world while a lot of regular life is on hold to control the spread of the coronavirus. Down the road, when things have returned to a more ordinary routine, the development, or not, of these guys will probably figure in a big way into...
