Questions submitted to Orioles Nation for the Weekly Mailbag for the week of 2/13 – 2/16. Topics include Majors, Minors, Transactions, etc.
The Baltimore Orioles want to trade Jim Johnson and the Los Angeles Dodgers are, reportedly, interested in acquiring him. What would a deal with the Dodgers look like and just how huge of a deal could it be?
Matt Wieters handles a heavy workload behind the plate, and the Orioles are in search of a capable backup catcher to help save his strength and stamina. Are there any in-house options?
The Orioles most memorable season in a decade and a half—and maybe ever—cam to a halt Friday night at Yankee Stadium as the Orioles lost 3-1 to CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees.
The Orioles find themselves in a position now where another loss in either of the next two games will cost them the season. The birds dropped a heartbreaker in New York to the Yankees, 3-2 in 12 innings Wednesday night.
The Orioles had their backs against the wall heading into Game Two of the ALDS against the Yankees at Camden Yards Monday night.
Cobb (W, 11-9) gave up just one run on two hits through seven innings, outpitching O’s lefty Wei-Yin Chen (L, 12-11), who hasn’t won since August 19.
The Orioles wrapped up September very hot. Dangerously hot. Almost TOO hot. How hot is that? Too hot for flight. More on that in a moment, but first, let’s talk about your playoff-bound squad.
The Orioles and Red Sox have met numerous times at Camden Yards in September in games with playoff implications. Implications for one of the teams, anyway, and the Orioles haven’t been that team. Oh, 2012…how Orioles Nation has waited for you.
In Sunday’s series finale at Fenway Park, the Orioles had two chances to tie the Red Sox or take the lead with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Instead, the birds fell to Boston 2-1 as the Red Sox avoid the sweep.
