A few mini tidbits

*Kevin Millwood’s ride-along with the Baltimore police on Wednesday afternoon will be televised on MASN’s pregame show Friday. Millwood said if he wasn’t a baseball player he wanted to be a cop, so the team arranged the ride-along.
*Orioles prospects Zach Britton and Caleb Joseph were on hand for Thursday’s game. Britton was a guest on the MASN pregame show, while Joseph joked he was Britton’s bodyguard for the night.
*Rhyne Hughes set an Orioles franchise record by hitting safely and recording an RBI in his first three Major League games. After sitting against tough left CC Sabathia, he was back in Thursday’s lineup.
*Jason Berken is third in the American League in lowest opponets’ batting average against lefties (minimum of 20 batters faced) at .091. He trails only Boston’s Daniel Bard (.080) and Minnesota’s Francisco Liriano (.087)
*Prior to Friday night’s game, Miguel Tejada will present Project Medishare with a check for $25,000 from the Orioles Charitable Foundation to assist in their Haitian earthquake relief efforts. Dr. Barth Green -who is expected to be in attendance for the ceremony– and Dr. Arthur Fournier founded Project Medishare for Haiti, Inc. in 1994.  Tejada is also going to donate money for each hit and homer he collects this season, although they haven’t determined exactly what amount that will be.


Here’s a tidbit Adam Jones does not have the plate discipline yet or draw enough walks (bad OBP) to leadoff. Who do we put there? Why not Markakis? Its like theres no one on base when he comes up anyway so who is he going to drive in? Nick has the speed and draws the walks.

Just exactly where does management draw the line when it comes to replacing a manager that has won 4 games in a month?
