If you want to hear more about the Ravens' come-from-behind win over the Cardinals, the Redskins' shutout loss to the Bills and much more, tune into MASN Monday from 5:30-7 p.m. as MASNsports.com's Roch Kubatko and I team up to put a new spin on "The Mid-Atlantic Sports Report." I'm pumped up for the new format which will air every Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout
There are rumblings around the sports talk airwaves. Some say the Orioles' general manager hiring process should account for not just qualifications and vision, but how a candidate's personality meshes with a strong-willed Buck Showalter. It seems like an appropriate consideration when picking a front office executive. After all, the two parties have to work together to run the club. Nothing paralyzes on-field production like
With Dodgers assistant general manager De Jon Watson interviewing to become the Orioles' president of baseball operations Wednesday, I'll continue to play general manager while the position is still vacant. My MASNsports.com colleague Roch Kubatko has posted a list of free agent second basemen. Everyone on the blog is scouring that list for a realistic replacement if Brian Roberts isn't healthy.

The transition should warrant some excitement.
And so the search begins for the Orioles' next general Manager. Apparently, "according to sources," half of the senior vice presidents and assistant GMs in the league are candidates. Whoever is being considered, Peter Angelos and the Orioles can't afford to drag the search out. This club needs to be aggressive in the free agency market this winter, so chop chop. Based on that, the
On Tuesday morning, I sat in the empty seats of Camden Yards while a television crew from Melbourne, Australia, interviewed me about the park that changed the way baseball stadiums were designed. Sports Brand Media is working on a new television series called "Houses of Glory" that profiles great sporting arenas from all over the world. You can check out the promo here. It looks
