O's trade one-time hero Robert Andino

The Baltimore Orioles make a trade sending infielder Robert Andino to the Seattle Mariners for outfielder Trayvon Robinson. The Orioles were expected to non-tender Andino by the November 30 deadline. With the Orioles signing second baseman Alexi Casilla this offseason, and hearing recent news of Brian Roberts’ good health, it makes sense to send Andino …

Pick Me, Pick Me!

I didn’t do too bad in my Week 7 fantasy pick ups.  Only Jackie Battle and Torrey Smith underperformed from my predictions.  Otherwise, we all heard the miracle Tebow performed this past weekend, and DeMarco Murray had a career day on the ground.  Kellen Winslow also proved to do well when he found the endzone …

A Quick Pick-me-up
