07:37 AM ET 01.17 | Good news, O's fans. Orioles third baseman Manny Machado underwent a checkup on his surgically repaired left knee Thursday in California and, according to an industry source, it went well and doctors told the 21-year-old that he was six to eight weeks ahead of a normal recovery period. The club did not make a formal announcement about Thursday's exam. Machado has been sidelined since Sept. 23 when he injured his left knee while running to first base. He was re-examined Thursday in California by Los Angeles Dodgers team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed reconstructive surgery Oct. 14 to repair Machado's torn medial patellofemoral ligament Given ElAttrache's prognosis, if things continue smoothly, the belief is Machado will be ready to play Opening Day.

I like watching this kid play and felt bad for him when he did go down. Fortunately for him, he's only 21, which helps accelerate the healing and rehab process.

He is outstanding. He deserves more National press than he gets.

Baltimore used to be a large market town back in the mid 90's. The owner has done all he can to shrink us and make us a lesser known commodity.
