I just can't believe a 40 year old would have something called a "Playstation". Might explain is martial status, though.  ;D
Katie is the only person on here who references owning a Playstation and, if I'm not mistaken, she's married.

Ah, I see. I appear to have the reading comprehension skills of a non-gifted five year old.  :D
Also, I am closer to 30 than 40.

I just didn't want the Orioles thread to fall off the 5th page and on to the 6th, given their severe lack of free agent signings.  Save for Johnny Giavotella of course, or releasing OF Michael Bourn newsworthy?

A little worried about the Orioles season, but I'll be happy to be back at the Yard next week.

I didn't see anything about Tommy John either, but it is a usual outcome for forearm strains.  It's either that or Stem Cell treatment.

Oh, well if Stacey from CamdenChat reports on it, citing absolutely nothing in her article from the O's or a medical professional, then it must be true.

With all due respect to Spencer Hall who is hilarious, I stopped considering anything coming from the SB Nation family of sites "responsible sports journalism" after the Holtzclaw kerfuffle (and I probably shouldn't have held on that long).

From Roch:

Zach Britton is on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left forearm, making him eligible to return on April 26. He told reporters that the discomfort is closer to his wrist than elbow, which brings a huge sigh of relief.
You hear ?strained forearm? or ?flexor mass? and immediately think ?Tommy John surgery.? It?s an overreaction that comes from all the examples of pitchers who eventually have to undergo the procedure, including Dylan Bundy, who turned in his third quality start yesterday.

Unfortunately, that doesn't happen to the Angels, as our free agent/transaction track record is among the worst in baseball.

I will meter my expectations.
