Yeah I know (well, I didn't know it was exactly 47% or anything) which is why it's going to piss me off when he randomly hits 30 homeruns this year for those cocks.
I'm guessing Duquette will announce the signings of Bourn and Saunders on Tuesday.
Looking up Hafner's stats...even though he hasn't played much he has produced when he did play. He's been consistently in the .800s (except last year) and he absolutely KILLS RHP.
I just know he's going to end up having a huge year for the Yankees just to piss me off. I just know it.
Happy Birthday to my brother, jsh.
The big 28 today.
Congrats FTN for the first post on page 300.

Brian Matusz | No. 4 overall pick, LHP, Baltimore Orioles
On the strength of a 1.91 minor league earned run average in 2009, Matusz entered 2010 as a top-15 prospect. He initially made good on that promise, as he posted a 95 FIP- in his rookie campaign that was the best among Orioles' starters. But then his velocity -- which was never all that fast to begin with -- fell 1.4 mph to 88.5 mph, enough to degrade his offerings from deceptive to delectable. All of a sudden, Matusz couldn't fool anybody, and he finished an injury-marred 2011 campaign with a 10.69 ERA.
He started to get things back on track last season, but he enjoyed his best success as a reliever. As we head into camp, the O's have a glut of starting pitching candidates, which may push Matusz back to relief and thus seriously impede his opportunity to be anything other than a role player from here on out. The Orioles will probably be happy if they can extract any value out of him at this point, but you'd like more than a lefty specialist from the No. 4 pick.
Paul Swydan looks at five top picks from the 2008 draft and wonders if it's time to give up on them.
If he really wanted jsh to have a happy birthday, he would have left that honor for him.
Vegas took a bath on that bet.
If we didn't already have a ton of options from the left side, I would have loved to sign Pronk.
Am I crazy, or did I see him at FanFest? I thought I saw someone that looked exactly like him but I wasn't sure.
He was there, did an autograph session
so what is the latest on the Os-Nats MASN dispute? It is almost spring training and still not resolved. Amazingly slow.
last I heard was MLB was hiring an investment banker to sell MASN but then Angelos told them to suck it. So if Angelos won't sell, and the "formula" for market is pretty clear (as the reporting seems to indicate), and the Nats have to accept $30MM instead of $90MM, what then?
#Orioles CF @SimplyAJ10 & @PTisFLY are headed to the SuperBowl to root on the Ravens & giving @MLB a behind the scenes look at their trip.
Stay tuned for exclusive coverage and give them both a follow if you aren't already.
Ghiroli telling everyone to follow ZNATE on twitter.
And this guess is based on...what, exactly???
Pollyanna fan statement much?
Maybe you're just joking... I hope so.
Needs more IMPACT FONT.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
O's are not expected to make MiL offers to Tatis or Rhodes.

The #Orioles have purchased the contract of LH hitting catcher Zane Chavez from El Paso of the independent league American Association.
The 26 year old Chavez hit .336 In 37 G with El Paso in '12. Adds organizational catching depth. Will report to #Orioles' minor league camp
I keep watching the video on Baltimoreravens.com and I get chills every time I see Jonesy on the field holding the Maryland flag. So awesome.
I know ftn has tried this previously but I'm felling it:
This is Joe Saunders Week. He decides in the next 7 days.
I really hope Rhodes can still bring it as a loogy.
Even if he doesn't make it out of ST, at least we know we have an emergency arm already in Baltimore!
I mean hes running out of time at this point
I was hoping they'd bring Rhodes to camp just because I think he could be a positive influence on Matusz.
Maybe they'll bring Alan Mills to camp to demonstrate how to correct any Yankee bullshit
