    Tuesday Bird Droppings: The Orioles head north of the border

    Hello, friends. Another day has dawned with the Orioles in fourth place in the American League East. They are just 2.5 games out of a wild card spot following an Indians win on Monday. That seems so improbable but it is in fact true. As bad as the last month and a half have been, the Orioles are - for now - in this race. Although the Orioles are that close, they’re also just a game ahead of the last place Blue Jays, and as it happens, that’s who the Orioles are set to play for the next three games. If the Orioles lose tonight, they will be tied for last place again. If they win, they will be .500 again. It beats the alternative. This is really a crucial stretch for the Orioles. I can’t stress

Paul Janish commented during the pre-game radio show that hopefully Baltimore has had their bad run, and the series in Tampa was the start of something good. Optimistic fans of the O’s certainly hope that’s the case. Toronto RHP Joe Biagini (2-6, 4.43) faced Kevin Gausman (3-7, 6.47) on a beautiful summer night at Rogers

    How his mighty managers pushed A’s Bob Melvin toward milestone

    OAKLAND — Even during his playing days, Bob Melvin knew a good matchup when he saw one. So he privately fumed upon arriving at the ballpark one day in 1989 to see Manager Frank Robinson had left him out of the lineup against a pitcher he hit well. Melvin resolved to march into Robinson’s office. But it took him a while to summon the courage. Melvin paced outside the door for so long that the famously fearsome Baltimore Orioles manager finally snapped. “Hey, do have something to say to me?” Robinson said. “I do, as a matter of fact … sir,” Melvin replied. Melvin recounted this pivotal moment from his own office at the Oakland Coliseum last week. Now in his seventh season with the A’s, the two-time
