I couldn’t possibly call it quits for the week without passing along news that the Orioles have re-signed Lew Ford to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Baltimore dropped Ford from the 40-man roster last week and none of the other 29 teams claimed him off waivers, but he’ll try to make it back to the majors as a non-roster player.

Ford’s comeback was a helluva story, as he went five years between big-league stints, but he ended up hitting just .183 in 25 games for the Orioles at age 35. With that said: LEWWWWWW!

    Again, sometimes I wish I could just give a thumbs up to the post itself….
