  1. There’s clearly been a great outpouring of affection over the past two days for local legend Wild Bill Hagy. We’ve had new visitors to our blog (Roar from 34) who appreciate that we, and others, are remembering Hagy. There’s no guarantee that the Orioles will properly recognize Hagy, so I’m proposing that the Birds blogging community get together to organize an unofficial “Wild Bill Hagy Day” at Camden Yards. We all know that Wild Bill wasn’t a Camden Yards type guy. Neverthless, I think we should try and get the place good and rowdy in his memory.

    I’m contacting O’s bloggers vy e-mail or directly through their sites. My thought is to order tickets as a group and then promote the gathering through all of our blogs. It’d be great to hold the event during the O’s final homestand against the Yankees, which also happens to be “Fan Appreciation Weekend.” And Hagy, being a loyal O’s fan, hated the Yankees most of all.

    Do you think we could make one of those final three games “Wild Bill Appreciation Day”? I did a preliminary check on 30 tickets for the last game of the season and there were 30 available in the same Upper Reserve section. We could probably increase the number if we moved quickly.

    Thoughts? Ideas? I’m sure we could get some local coverage of the event and make it even bigger than our dedicated circle of O’s fans. It’d be nice to have a grassroots baseball effort that celebrated the Orioles’ past rather than bemoan its present.

  2. WOW! Great to see another O’s fan out there…
    Hi Ben, I’m Molly. Just started writing my own blog here on wordpress- mdbirdlover- although I’ve been engaged in a lot of football stuff these days.
    Mark Teixiera was reportedly at the Ravens game last night with Peter Angelos. I did not see him, I am a season ticket holder for the Ravens. A local radio station confirmed last night. But I have heard nothing today.
    I’d love for the O’s to pick him up. In Fact, I’m pretty sure all fans would agree. Thoughts on that happening?

  3. This is my first time on this site. It’s nice to see a fan who truly understands what the O’s need to do now and in the future. The past decade or so have been dissapointing but the team needs to stay focused. I think Angelos is starting to slowly realize how to effectivly run a baseball team.

  5. I just wanted to let you know that I decided to start a campaign to get my readers and other Orioles’ fans to vote for the Birds in the All Star game. I’ve made a few images that link to the ballot and are embeddable to websites and blogs.

    If you’d like to add one feel free.

  6. Hello,

    I’m writing asking if you’d be interested in participating in a MLB 2009 Trade Deadling Preview which kicks off July 14th.
    We’d like to work with the best team bloggers to ensure this preview can be as accurate as possible.

    Here are the guidelines for participating:
    Your role is to critique your team with both the postives and the negatives.
    Your article must be approximately 300-500 words, it must contain information regarding your teams depth, potential new additions, potential losses and second half prediction.
    Is your team a buyer or a seller?
    What does your team have to offer the league (what teams specifically),
    What does the league have to offer your team
    One blockbuster deal
    One deal that is most likely to be completed by your team.
    It would be nice to see who you think will be called up from the minors
    Who you think will help get your team back into the chase or keep them going strong into the postseason.

    A link on your blog to your article stating that you participated in the MVN MLB 2009 trade deadline preview with a link to the article. You’re welcome to reprint the article with a link back to the rest, a separate, original blurb/article or simply the link and sentence.
    We would like to offer you the coverage of the Baltimore Orioles
    Are you interested in participating? We’d love to have you! Please let me know either way.

    Your write up would be due by July 20th, 2009.

    Sincerely,
