  1. Could the Nationals really send Drew Storen to the minors?

    Mar 18, 2011, 8:25 PM EDT

    storen_drew

    Aaron asked earlier today just how much spring stats actually matter. The general consensus is that they shouldn’t hold much weight, especially with more established players. For instance, the Orioles aren’t going to cut Luke Scott just because he entered tonight’s action with an .067 batting average over his first 30 at-bats this spring. They…

  2. Vlad Guerrero will take physical with Orioles on Wednesday

    Feb 14, 2011, 8:08 PM EDT

    Veteran slugger Vladimir Guerrero agreed to a one-year, $8 million contract with the Orioles a whole ten days ago. On Wednesday, he will finally take his physical. If he passes, the O’s will officially introduce him on Friday. That all comes from Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, who has also caught word that Guerrero…

  3. UPDATE: Orioles sign Vladimir Guerrero to a one-year, $8 million contract

    Feb 4, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v San Francisco Giants, Game 1

    UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com hears that a significant portion of Guerrero’s $8 million salary is deferred. 6:59 PM: Buster Olney of ESPN.com confirms his colleague’s initial report. It’s one-year, $8 million, pending a physical. Interestingly, as Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun notes, the O’s payroll now sits at approximately $93 million, approximately $20…

  4. UPDATE: Orioles aren’t willing to budge from current offer for Vladimir Guerrero

    Jan 29, 2011, 10:04 AM EDT

    Vladimir Guerrero

    UPDATE: According to Buster Olney of ESPN.com, the Orioles want Vladimir Guerrero, but only on their terms. He reports the total worth of the O’s offer is somewhere around $4.5-5 million. I would assume that includes a lower base salary with some incentives. 7:15 PM, Friday: Well, this act is getting old. According to Brittany…

  5. Vlad Guerrero’s options are running out

    Jan 27, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v San Francisco Giants, Game 1

    Buster Olney tweeted today that the Orioles are only willing to sign Vladimir Guerrero if he “puts himself on a platter.”  In that, Olney is thinking a one-year, $2 million contract. This in contrast to the reported $8 millon a year that Guerrero was reportedly seeking earlier this offseason. And really, the Orioles have the leverage…

  6. A Baltimore Sun writer thinks the O’s should sign Vlad

    Jan 23, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Texas Rangers, Game 4

    The Orioles don’t have a deal with Vladimir Guerrero, as Jim Bowden reported Saturday, but they are at least looking into signing the aging slugger. The Baltimore front office undoubtedly spent the weekend sorting out positives and negatives.  Vlad might hit well at Camden Yards, but bringing him aboard would mean moving Luke Scott to…

  7. UPDATE: Orioles not close to deal with Vladimir Guerrero

    Jan 22, 2011, 9:23 AM EDT

    Vladimir Guerrero

    UPDATE: Orioles president Andy MacPhail tells Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com that Bowden’s report “is not accurate.” He’s not the first one to say that. 8:32 AM: According to Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio, Vladimir Guerrero is close to signing a one-year contract with the Orioles. Bowden calls it a “humbling deal” and “one of…

  8. Deer antlers: the hot new PED

    Jan 20, 2011, 9:31 AM EDT

    Deer

    Given how many baseball players spend their offseasons hunting you’d think we would have heard about this by now, but this is the first I’ve heard of ground up deer antlers being used by athletes as a PED: They harvest the so-called velvet antler (a soft coating that covers deer antlers) in New Zealand, freeze-dry…

  9. The Orioles continue to target Derrek Lee

    Dec 29, 2010, 5:34 AM EDT

    Derrek Lee braves

    Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun first reported this back on the 21st, but Ken Rosenthal said again last night that the Orioles are continuing to target Derrek Lee.  They’re apparently not high on the idea of getting a DH and moving Luke Scott to first base, and with the rumored Adam LaRoche offer seemingly…

  10. A third option for the Orioles at first base

    Dec 22, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Troy Glaus third base

    The Orioles have a three-year $21 million offer on the table to Adam LaRoche. For reasons that remain unclear, he has not jumped at it yet.  Realizing that maybe going three-years on LaRoche isn’t the best idea, they have reportedly contacted Derrek Lee, who may be amenable to a one-year deal.  Makes sense. Know what…

  11. Is everything OK in Baltimore?

    Dec 21, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Andy Macphail

    I don’t read Roch Kubato’s blog every day so maybe this is just part of his shtick, but if not, this is mildly interesting: Yesterday passed without the Orioles doing anything. President of baseball operations Andy MacPhail might have made contact with more agents or rival executives, but that’s only an assumption. The media has…

  12. Saying goodbye to the Winter Meetings

    Dec 9, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    IMG_1361

    The team executives and agents have made their escape from the Dolphin Resort and the Winter Meetings are winding to a close.  I have a plane to catch and a couple of kids to see this evening. The hot stove roller coaster is not going to stop, but I need to jump off for now.…

  13. Everyone thinks Carl Crawford is going to the Angels

    Dec 8, 2010, 5:56 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford swinging

    Yes, he dined with the Yankees, and sure, anyone can swoop in if they wanted to, but Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports that two sources close to Carl Crawford are saying that he’s going to the Angels. Which, for what it’s worth, a lot of people are saying down here in Orlando. Saxson…

  14. Reader Dissent: “Craig, you are such a pinko communist tool”

    Dec 8, 2010, 5:28 PM EDT

    Marx Lennon

    This is in response to the Luke Scott stuff, obviously. And I disagree with it even if the reader is 66% correct in his first sentence: Craig, you are such a pinko communist tool.  You certainly are not qualified to comment on anyone’s beliefs, even those that aren’t part of the orchestrated drivel the “news”…

  15. Afredo Simon, Buck Showalter fined for throwing at Jose Bautista

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Orioles’ pitcher Alfredo Simon was just suspended for three games and Buck Showalter was suspended for one game after the Orioles figured the best way to stop Jose Bautista this weekend was to plunk him. Twice. The Jays’ Shaun Marcum was fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Baltimore’s Luke Scott in retaliation. I have never…

  16. The Orioles could make a play for Victor Martinez

    Sep 24, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Let us first stipulate that, yeah, it’s probably way too early for free agent rumors. So much happens between now and when guys file that it’s kinda silly for anyone to put too much stock in the various whispers out there. But hey: if people can spend all day arguing that wins are what makes…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday's Scores and Highlights

    Sep 20, 2010, 5:34 AM EDT

    The Phillies and Braves enter their big series on a roll, the Yankees and Rays — not so much.

  18. And That Happened: Monday's Scores and Highlights

    Sep 14, 2010, 5:44 AM EDT

    Lots of zeroes for the Mets, Yankees, Phillies and Pirates. The judges give the Yankees bullpen management only slightly higher scores.

  19. Your trade deadline winners and losers

    Jul 31, 2010, 8:46 PM EDT

    As much as we try our best to separate the wheat from the chaff here at HBT, we’re honestly still trying to get our bearings straight after cranking out over 110 posts in the past two days alone, the great majority of them being trade rumors. If you followed today’s deadline on Twitter, you should…

  20. Five teams that need to make a deal

    Everyone can get better at the deadline. But who needs it the most?

  21. Position-by-position trade deadline preview: Left field & right field

    Jul 27, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    This is the sixth in a series of articles looking at players who might be available in the days leading up to the July 31 trade deadline. Jayson Werth (Phillies) – It seemed inconceivable two months ago, but the Phillies have been willing to discuss Werth because of their need for pitching and their ability…

    If I weighted for dumb trades the Diamondbacks would be 45.

  23. Orioles call up Josh Bell and move Miguel Tejada to DH

    Jul 1, 2010, 4:44 PM EDT

    As expected the Orioles placed Luke Scott on the disabled list today after he suffered a hamstring injury rounding the bases on a home run last night, but in a surprise move they replaced him on the roster by calling up Josh Bell rather than activating Felix Pie from the DL. Bell was acquired from…

  24. And That Happened: Wednesday's Scores and Highlights

    Jul 1, 2010, 5:47 AM EDT

    There’s a Roger Miller reference in here someplace, but I link to Asleep at the Wheel’s version, because the video quality was higher.

  25. Projecting the 2010 AL All-Star team

    Jun 21, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    With rosters having been expanded back in April, both All-Star teams this year will have 21 position players and 13 pitchers. Let’s try and break it down, first with the AL and then tomorrow with the NL. Catcher Lock: Joe Mauer Possibilities: Victor Martinez, Jorge Posada, John Buck, Kurt Suzuki Posada is playing as well…
