    Orioles notes and observations (road trip, Hammel, Clark, Gavin Floyd)
    I was asked before the Orioles left for their 11-game, three-city swing out west what would constitute a successful trip. I said 6-5. Luckily I wasn’t asked to amend it after the Orioles won three of four in Oakland. They ended up 7-4. And that...

    Not the end of the world, but Sox fatalists can see it from here
    If you are a White Sox fatalist -- one of the 30,000 or so who were smart enough not to fill the Cell for Tuesday night’s joke against Minnesota -- then you have good reason to warm up the car and close the garage door on this season. Yeah, the Sox...

    Wait, Zambrano's the poised one?
    Before the first game of this year’s White Sox-Cubs series, I asked a question that I’d like to revisit now that we have a result. Who would go crazier: Cubs runners on Gavin Floyd or the flash mob in Carlos Zambrano’s head? Answer:...
