  1. Chris Hoiles was always my wife’s favorite Oriole – not sure she’s had one since. Maybe Melvin Mora for the whole quintuplets thing, or Sidney Ponson for kinda hitting on her at a DC Fanfest thing. Nontheless, I REALLY hope Wieters doesn’t disappoint like everything else with the O’s over the last 12 years.

  2. I just gained 15 lbs with the opening of Lost Dog in South Arlington. Only six blocks from my house. (And 3 from El Norte Casa de Mottram!!)
