2008-11-26T11:17:31.880-05:00Dennis Sarfate has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season! He's making a great comeback from his clavicle surgery. Here's the full story.

2008-08-15T14:11:33.899-04:00Did anyone watch the women's gymnastics last night? Could Nastia Liukin look any more unhappy? OMG. I guess her dad is her coach. Has he not noticed that his daughter seems to hate everything about gymnastics, especially her teammate? Seriously, if looks could kill, Shawn Johnson would have died a few times over last night.
2008-09-25T15:32:12.034-04:00How nice would it be if I got to buy World Series tickets this fall? At this point, anything can happen! I love springtime...
2008-04-15T18:24:22.838-04:00So there are some times that you don't want to be messed with, and then there are times you're just so relieved to have been messed with... this cracked me up. Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick didn't seem to mind being told that his trade to Japan was just a joke after all.
2008-04-21T13:19:01.212-04:00It can't always be baseball season, I suppose, so I bought some Baltimore Ravens tickets today. Drinking a cold beer in a football stadium in November just doesn't seem the same, though.
2007-07-04T03:57:12.230-04:00Okay, so I'm not usually a sucker for the musical montages, but this was an awesome watch.
2007-05-10T12:12:43.921-04:00Seems like the Baltimore Orioles are hitting the extremes as far as drama goes. Jay Gibbons starts complaining about lack of playing time, and manager Sam Perlozzo gives only this statement (from baltimoresun.com):
2007-03-09T10:45:11.370-05:00Okay tonight's the real deal. Think Washington fans will see a win over the Orioles tonight? Well, as much as the Nationals would like to win this one, they just don't have the lineup. Look on the Orioles bench ... Jay Gibbons. Brian Roberts. Miguel Tejada. Melvin Mora. Ramon Hernandez. Aubrey Huff. Corey Patterson. Nick Markakis, Jay Payton. Kevin Millar. I think we will see a repeat defeat.
2007-01-17T14:48:21.536-05:00Remember when you last caught a glimpse of Sammy Sosa? It was in 2005, in his one season with the Baltimore Orioles. He’s been wanting to get back into MLB baseball and has been working out at home in the Dominican Republic. Just the other day he was spotted working out at Ameriquest Field with the Texas Rangers, the first big league team to give him a break, way back when he was 16. Sammy stayed with the Rangers for 17 years before moving to Chicago, first with the White Sox, then with the Cubs. Anyway, nobody’s reporting offers, and Sammy is 38, not 16, but personally I’d like to see him back in the game if he’s got a few more swings of the bat in him.
2006-12-10T20:45:38.486-05:00The Baltimore Orioles signed their first baseman Kevin Millar to a one year extension of his contract for $2.75 million. Millar has averaged 17 home runs and 67 RBI's over the course of his seven season career. Last season Millar reached base in 103 of the 132 games that he did play by hit, walk, or hit by pitch. Millar has an option for 2008.
2006-11-17T16:34:04.890-05:00Looking over the Baltimore Orioles' calendar for the 2007, Ryan Sharrow of the Baltimore Business Journal found some tough spots on the schedule. Mainly the first half of it. First off, our birds will be up north to open against the Minnesota Twins. Then it's over to the Big Apple and three games with the New York Yankees. We finally get back to Camden Yards, only to stage our home opener against the reigning AL Champs, the Detroit Tigers.
Major League Baseball is hibernating, of course, so I’m taking the opportunity to catch up on world events, etc. etc. So I’ve been on the internet doing some googling. Only to find out that it makes Google mad if I refer to surfing any other search engine as “googling.” I read that they actually have lawyers stewing over this.
If this is true, and I must caution you that not everything you read on the internet is—sheesh!, they are just being stupid. How is this harming Google? If you were running Yahoo or AOL, wouldn’t you kill to have your name turned into the generic term for websearching?
Hey, Google, quit crying! Here’s a kleenex. I mean, a facial tissue.
2006-10-25T13:05:40.656-04:00I didn't know the exact figures until I read it online, but MLB has had nine work stoppages since 1972. No wonder it seemed like baseball strikes were hanging over our heads all the time!
2006-10-13T21:52:27.636-04:00Now we all know that it is still mathematically possible for the Oakland A's to come back from an 0 and 3 deficit -- ask the Boston Red Sox -- but my gut feeling is that this American League Championship Series is going to the Tigers...very likely in a sweep, the way the Athletics have been looking. Saturday afternoon will tell.
It’s easy to have a lot of pride in and awe from our “hometown hero”
On a positive note: Nickelback tickets are on sale for their
Bruce Chen missed the chance for his first win Friday in the first game of our series against the Los Angeles Angels. The Baltimore Orioles haven’t done well this weekend but I am hopeful for today’s game. We haven’t had a stellar season thus far but things are looking up after our 14-4 win over the Seattle Mariners.
The Baltimore Orioles are doing pretty well this season and I have high hopes that they will soon distinguish themselves as a winner in the American League East. What do you think of Bruce Chen’s contribution so far this season?
Kris Benson got his first win of the season against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Tuesday night and he looked like he was in top form. He gave up only five hits in eight innings and led the Baltimore Orioles to an 8-4 victory. Benson got some help from third baseman Melvin Mora who hit his third home run of the season. If things keep looking up we should win this three game series against
The Baltimore Orioles won their regular season home opener against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The spectacular final score was 14-7. Miguel Tejada and Luis Matos were two of the four Orioles who hit home runs that night. We tied a franchise record for RBIs in this sixth straight opening day victory.
There are some great concerts coming to the
2006-02-03T23:29:42.126-05:00I’ve been listening to some new music by Matisyahu lately. His reggae is classic sounding with heartfelt lyrics that say a lot about what kind of man he is. I like to listen to him while searching the net for Baltimore Orioles news and spring training gossip.
