Darn you, Cesar Tovar; taking 3 of 4 from the Twins

Caleb_Joseph_on_June_30,_2014Yes, I’m stealing this story from my book, “Tales from Orioles Nation.” And no shame of taking 3 out of 4 from the Twins. That’s a good thing.

Now on to more one-hitters. And for this story, we need to look at the career of long-time Minnesota Twins infielder Cesar Tovar. He was a lifetime .278 hitter in a 12-year career. I didn’t even know that he passed away back in 1994 at the age of 54. Read the rest of this entry »

Orioles make first round of callups

wpid-2014-08-01-17-46-27-1637083122.jpegThe Baltimore Orioles have started making their first round of September callups. Unlike past seasons the Orioles have only recalled veteran players that will add depth to the Orioles. The Orioles have recalled Kevin Gausman, who is starting today and Evan Meek. The Orioles have selected the contract of Joe Saunders and Kelly Johnson has reported to the club.

Meek and Saunders have both struggled this season but they will add depth to the bullpen. Saunders might get a start during the doubleheader with the New York Yankees. I would be very careful if I was the Orioles about starting Saunders, he has been hit around this season. Read the rest of this entry »
