A Big Day

Well the Orioles were busy today. They announced that Buck Showalter will be taking over managerial duties on Tuesday. The former manager and ESPN analyst signed a deal that will keep him in Baltimore until 2014. Showalter has a history of turning around struggling organizations and no organization is struggling more than the Baltimore Orioles.

Showlater brings instant credibility with him to the dug out and everyone in baseball feels this is the best possible move for the Orioles.

Speaking of moves, Miguel Tejada was a last second scratch from tonight's lineup because he was traded to the San Diego Padres for right-handed prospect Wynn Pelzer. Pelzer is rated the fifth highest prospect in the Padres organization. He is a fire-baller with a solid slider but sometimes has control issues. He projects out to be a ML closer.

Honestly, I am a little bummed that the Orioles didn't get a position prospect back for Miggy, but you can never have enough pitching.

Josh Bell will be at third for the remainder, and that is good I am very excited to see Bell up here and playing on a regular basis if he is to be the future of the hot corner in Baltimore then now is the time to see what he can do.
