Hurricane Sandy and Orioles playersThis stupid hurricane is another reason that I don’t understand why anyone wants the Orioles players to spend their offseasons here in Baltimore. Would we like to see them suffer like we do?

It was neat that back in the day the local athletes would shop at the same grocery stores as fans and football players worked odd jobs during the offseason, but those days are over. I’d rather have the Orioles players living somewhere warm where they can keep in good shape and maybe even play a little baseball in the winter.

They’ll come back to Baltimore in April. That’s good enough for me.
