You can keep Rolen away from us!

The O’s are facing the Jays in a three game series starting tonight at 7:05 in Camden Yards! Finally the O’s are off of their road trip in which they went (3-4) which was not bad for them, seeing as how they have done worse. Way worse! Now they get to come home where they have a winning record. The good news is Roy Halladay the Jays ace will be nowhere in site as last night he pitched and took the loss.

Good news for the O’s is that SS Cesar Izturis will make his return to the O’s tonight as he has been out since June 7 and the O’s have missed him. He was batting .260 with 1 HR and 13 RBI with nine swipes at the time of his injury. Now the O’s will have a stronger lineup and a stronger infield!

Pitching tonight for the O’s is Jason Berken (1-5, 6.25) who has been plagued by the long ball. He looks to follow up a halfway decent outing, but hasn’t made it past the sixth in six of his last seven outings. Ouch. Berken won’t have it easy tonight, nor will any O’s pitcher as they face the terrid Jays lineup in which Scott Rolen is “rollin'” and doesn’t seem to slow down any time soon! He is on a 25 game hit streak which he has been riding since late June.


Keep him away! IN other O’s news, Aubrey Huff pulled his groin while being caught between first and second in the O’s 5-3 win over the M’s. With this loss to the O’s lineup, they could have a significant drought, as Huff has been on fire as of late. He has 11 HR and 55 RBI which sets the pace for the O’s. He has been the leader as of late, and without him, someone else will need to step it up! Who will it be?…
















Manager Dave Trembley recieved a two game suspension for his actions following an ejection. Trembley raced back out onto the field and kept arguing with umpire Tom Hallion. MLB docked him an undisclosed amount of money and a two game suspension for his actions. “I was getting my team fired up.” said Trembley, “And it worked. We came back in the ninth and won!”

I am going to start a new section in my blog today called,

Birdland’s thoughts

  • Manager Dave Trembley is starting to catch my eye, as he made me a fan when he kept arguing with umpire Tom Hallion. Not only did he fire up his team, he got the O’s GM thinking about keeping him.
  • Cesar Izturis will be happily welcomed back into the O’s family as he will get the start making his return to the galliant infield. He will even it out, as he is one of the better defensive SS in the MLB
  • Aubrey Huff has strained his groin and that will take a big effect on the O’s offense. The O’s need to keep it going without Huff if they wanna still win games.


Birdland’s thought of the day

  • Scott Rolen can keep on ROLLIN, just… keep us away. Rolen is on a 25 game hit streak, and doesn’t look like he is slowing down. He is as good as…..














No… not them! Maybe,









NO not Buckner! C’mon get real here.

















Yes! Finally, the Rolling Stones! Scott Rolen and the Rolling stones have many things in common.

1. They both are Rolling

2. They both are as old as stones

3. They both have been in ST. Louis

4. They both can hit. Scott Rolen is on a 25 game hit streak, The Rolling Stones can hit on women. Same Difference! 😉



The O’s need to just pitch around Rolen to end his little hit streak. They need to make him hit their pitch, not the one he wants. If the O’s can do that, Rolen will go down top-heavy!











C’mon O’s, lets take the Jays down! I will post again tomorrow! I will also keep you updated! Comment as much as you can, I am trying to get at least twenty comments!

    You guys should put a Philadelphia sign at the airport, may Rolen will think he’s in the wrong place and leave….. that or hit him with a pitch, or tell him it’s a day game and he played last night, You can tell how we just love Rolen in Philly we sent him to St Louis 7 years early…..

    I did a blog early in April on those Oriole bird cartoon that they have decided to renew after a 30 year absence.
    They are fantastic, and hopefully will be back for a long, long time.
    We beat up on the Jay enough to tenderize them for you.
    Scalp,filet, or even further tendorization will be the key here.
    It isa time for your team to make a move to vault over the Jays before their fire sale starts and people start saying ” they saw this collapse coming” instead of giving the O’s their props.
    Have fun this weekend, thne Huff Daddy will get three days to heal that groin pull.

    I told you that you guys can have Rolen! If you find a solution to striking him out – let us all know. Then we can send him on a “rollin” down hill for awhile! Good luck to the O’s!!!

    Dillon, and Canuck,
    thanks so much for commenting! We are at 12 so twenty isn’t out of reach. Please comment again on this! I will be sure to comment on both your blogs. 🙂

    Maybe someone should call immigration, just maybe he forgot he needs a passport now to get in and out of Canada, they may hold him at the boarder for the weekend… grease a few palms, am sure the Canadian officals will oblige….

  7. crazy19canuck

    Just hit a bunch of home runs, strike them out like crazy! Wouldn’t it look nice to see the standings and not have to see the O’s in last place?

  8. orangebirds

    Johnny and devilabrit,
    Haha, I like the Wayne’s World picture too! I found it on the internet, and I couldn’t not put it on my blog! Devilabrit, did you see that Rolen’s hit streak ended? But the O’s lost…..

  9. orangebirds

    Julia, Canuck, and Matt T,
    Haha, I know Julia, and I will check out up in section 360. That sounds like a die hard O’s fan, like me!
    Canuck, the O’s got shut out, I guess I just want a run to be scored!
    Matt T,
    I totally agree with you about how the O’s need to step it up! Keep posting everyone!

    funny post about Rolen and the Stones… Good connections there! Hahaha. Even though the O’s lost last night, they were able to hold the Jays to just 2 runs.

    To Everyone,
    thanks so much for commenting, We have 25 on this post. I will write another one right now. I think this will be my best thing yet. Keep watching and stay onto Birdland Blog, cuz this post will be a good one! 🙂

    Well it’s good to see all the abuse Rolen took in this blog yesterday paid off, it was good to hear he didn’t even get a walk, was a little dissapointed he wasn’t hit by a pitch though, that could have kept him out of the games till after the All Star break…. maybe tonight we’ll be luckier and have highlights of Rolen hitting the deck…..not really we do love him in Philly just as long as he stays in CANADA….
