The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to terms with Korean pitcher Suk-min Yoon according to multiple sources. The Orioles have been very quiet this off season but talks with Yoon heated up. Yoon posted a pitcher of himself in an Orioles hat a few days ago which led to speculation that he would sign with the Orioles.
The deal is for three-years 5.75 million and is still pending a physical. The Orioles have been tough when it comes to physicals this off season as Grant Balfour failed his earlier.
I do not know much about Yoon but I do know he was recovering from an injury last season and pitched out of the bullpen. Yoon should at least provide some depth to the Orioles pitching staff.

That first congressional election in the 4th district of Maryland was oh so close. It’s the 1986 battle between Republican Robert McNeal and rookie Democrat Charles Thomas McMillan. Certainly the tallest candidate was the Democrat. McMillan stood 6-foot-11. Yes, the big recruit of Maryland coach Lefty Driesell. He was one of the guys who put Maryland basketball on the map.
He came to College Park during the 1971-72 season and immediately found a home. That was the year we ran away and hid in the NIT. He easily led this 27-game winner with a 20.8 scoring average. He was nearly an 82 percent free throw shooter and was second to Lenny Elmore with his 9.6 rebounds a game.

We knew all about Bernard King. Out of New York and played his hoops at Tennessee. And then he was the top pick of the New Jersey Nets (1977) and played a long career in the NBA.
However, it was his little brother, Albert, who played a bigger role in Terrapin history. This King, so aptly named, came to Maryland in 1977, and to coach Lefty Driesell. Frankly, he didn’t help all that much as the Terps were barely a .500 club at 15-13.
