Cup of jO's: Is Hyun Soo Kim Really a Platoon Hitter?

This past season there was a wealth of intrigue regarding the true talent level of Hyun Soo Kim and why he had been used in the way that Buck used him.  From the Depot's perspective, it was a season ark bemusement.  Kim's Spring looked awful, but really what was the alternative? Some tried to get comfortable with the idea of Xavier Avery, but we knew who he was and he proceeded...

Should the Baltimore Orioles re-sign Matt Wieters?

Matt Wieters has spent his entire professional career with the Baltimore Orioles. After being drafted with the fifth pick in the 2007 MLB draft, Wieters began his career with three seasons in the minor leagues. He worked his way through the Orioles’ farm system and first played for Baltimore in 2009. Since then, Wieters has emerged as one of the best catchers in baseball. He has...

MLB auctioning off 'game-used' Zach Britton playoff jersey

The listing, which went up on Tuesday and continues through Sunday, already has 23 bids and is currently at $1,050. Of course, the phrase...

Blue Jays release statement regarding fan incident

The Toronto Blue Jays’ victory over the Baltimore Orioles in Tuesday’s American League Wild Card Game was at least partially marred by an incident in the seventh inning. As Hyun-soo Kim was catching a ball that ended the seventh inning, a fan threw a can of beer that landed very close to him.

Toronto police to fan who threw beer can: ‘Turn yourself in’

And now the Toronto police want the offender to turn himself in, warning the still-unidentified fan they have incriminating photos. The Toronto Police on Wednesday morning offered up the...

The Craziest Part of Showalter’s Crazy Decision

You already know the story of last night’s AL Wild Card game. The Orioles lost, and Zach Britton didn’t pitch. Everyone is talking about it today. Jeff Sullivan wrote a good piece on Showalter’s call, as did basically every other baseball writer in existence. 12 hours later, it’s still hard to believe that actually happened. In reading the accounts from those who talked...

Zach Britton Watched the Orioles Lose

There is one article to be written about Tuesday’s American League wild card game, and that article will be written in 25,000 different places.

Zach Britton: Watching last inning unfold was ‘frustrating’

While all the Blue Jays fans at Rogers Centre on Tuesday night went home happy, there was one person in the building probably more frustrated than anyone else: Zach Britton. Britton, a lefty closer for the Orioles, was not used at all by manager Buck Showalter during the AL wild card game between the Jays and O’s despite being the most dominant reliever in the majors all season...

The Orioles Are Better Than We Thought, Again

There’s a certain urgency to a post like this. Yesterday, I talked about the Cubs, and I had little choice but to mention the Cubs probably won’t win the World Series. The Orioles, one has to figure, are worse than the Cubs, so the Orioles probably won’t win the World Series, either. The odds are strongly against every individual team, meaning fans of every individual team...
