07:12 AM ET 05.22 | What a difference a year makes in Baltimore. Executive vice president Dan Duquette, who had been out of baseball for a decade, stockpiled pitchers in his first offseason with the Orioles, adding to the group of now-not-so-young arms compiled by his processor, Andy MacPhail, then practically running a shuttle that shuffled players from Norfolk and Bowie to Camden Yards. Those additions helped the Orioles secure an AL wild-card spot. So far this year, Duquette and the Orioles haven't had the same kind of success when reaching up their sleeves in search of pitchers to plug into their struggling rotation, which has a 4.85 ERA.

Though the O's did pull one out yesterday.... maybe their regaining their old form?

I wonder if I could fill this up - without resorting to numbering?

Had a good pitching night yesterday.... 3 W's including one from a reliever - and - it wasn't a blown save.

Of course - I have no idea what the score is of my DLFL game - had to be at work early today.

May 22, 2013  08:22 AM ET

But - I will check it out later..... heading home about 1400 after a meeting.....

By the way - the home plate umpire last night for the Rays-Jays game had a weird strike zone. Anything low and away for Left handed batters was a strike, yet for Righties - it was called a ball..... no consistency...

Why does Kate Upton's photo have a powder applicator attached so the side of her head?

Love what Durant did for Oklahoma relief. One million..... then the team matched it. Nice job.

Anyone see the video of the woman that found her dog while being interviewed... and the damn camera man that could set his video gear down long enough to help her get him out?
