Sunday Bird Droppings: The Orioles are doing weird, cheap stuff again

Hello, friends.

There are now 67 days remaining until the next scheduled Orioles game, which is Opening Day. The first Grapefruit League outing is a mere month and three days away, and of course, pitchers and catchers reporting to Sarasota stands even closer, now 23 days away, with the full squad arriving four weeks from today.

Between now and then, it seems that we may be in for a barrage of stories about how the Orioles are doing weird stuff. The first glimpse of this came on Friday night, when The Athletic’s Brittany Ghiroli reported that the Orioles-owned MASN is slashing costs, including cutting pre- and post-game programming and a number of veteran broadcasters, among them Birdland treasure Gary Thorne.
