Benson goes under the kn–…no, he doesn’t

So…Kris Benson…ah, what’s going on there?

He’s done for the season, he goes for a second opinion. He might be able to rehab it. No, he can’t rehab it. He gets a third opinion. Accupuncture might work. He gets a fourth opinion and thinks greasing it up in butter and leaning on pan might heal it. Now we get this.

Honestly, if this wasn’t a walk year, or a team option year that will likely make it walk a year, he’d have already have had surgery. But the fact that if he goes under the knife and misses the season, he’s going to end up like Mark Mulder and not get that Ted Lily deal. It’s about the money and that’s a bad deal. I’m skeptical that this can heal itself through rehab…I might be wrong.

The Roar has some good stuff

Oriole Post has a Frank Robinson update.

Random Reality brings the news that Gary Thorne is the new television voice of the O’s.

The way this works now it Thorne does two thirds of the MASN games with either Jim Palmer or Buck Martinez and a few with Rick Dempsey. The one third Thorne doesn’t do will be done by Boy Howdy himself, Jim Hunter. Fred Manfra apparently goes to the radio with the man Joe Angel. Hunter and Dempsey will be on the pre-game and post-game show and Amber Theodoris will be the on-field reporter. It’s not that I don’t like Hunter, BUT everything that happens is such an epic event. He’s a little too much a homer. Manfra is the exact opposite.
