Can the Orioles keep one or both of their 2014 Rule 5 Draft picks? Logan Verrett, the pitcher with more minor league experience appears to have the upper hand, but A-ball pitcher Jason Garcia has also pitched well. Verrett is a more polished product, but Garcia's live fastball may allow him the opportunity to develop his secondary pitches at the major league level.

The Orioles are currently opening negotiations for a possible extension of Chris Tillman. This report comes from Joel Sherman at the New York Post and Jon Heyman from CBS Sports.
Kevin Gausman - Baltimore Orioles SP

Call me paranoid, but I just don't see it.

The Ravens are looking to add another name to their Ring of Honor for 2015.  For the past four years, the Ravens have added a player into their Ring of Honor with now eight members being part of this illustrious club.

Today in the SVP Lounge, CT, Dan and Matt convene to anguish over and break down Maryland’s second round loss to West Virginia in the NCAA tournament.

Bud Norris - Baltimore Orioles SP

Back in November, I discussed potentially trading Bud Norris for some necessary pieces that were missing both in the infield and outfield for the Baltimore Orioles. With the signings of Travis Snider and Everth Cabrera, the Orioles were able to avoid this issue and maintain Norris.
Melo Trimble - Maryland Terrapins

It can wear on you. Sometimes being a sports fan can be just brutal. I'll admit, some tough losses have even made me wonder why I invest so much into these silly teams.

Dez Wells - Maryland Terrapins

Tonight at 6:30 Maryland will be playing Indiana in the quarterfinals of the Big 10 tournament? I was going to write a full preview on this, but I remembered that I wrote one just a few months ago about this very Hoosiers team. In fact, astute observers will note the Terps have seen the Hoosiers twice already, neither of which were necessarily pleasant encounters; the Blowout in Bloomington and a Nailbiter in College Park. Point being, this is the third fight in the trilogy, all of the tricks are out of the bag and no one is anonymous anymore.
Justin Forsett - Baltimore Ravens RB

Justin Forsett signs a three-year deal to remain in Baltimore. Forsett had his breakout season with 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns on 235 attempts at 28 years old and seven years in the NFL. Aaron Wilson reports that Forsett will make around three million a year
