Baltimore Orioles: News from O’s Icons & Wonderings about 2020 Season
In the crazy world of the 2020 ML-Will-It-Or-Won’t-It-B season, the Baltimore Orioles keep popping up in the news.
One of the more vocal Baltimore Orioles in the battle between Rob Manfred and the owners and the MLBPA is Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer.
The other day, he recommended all parties in the MLB watch Field of Dreams to remember what baseball is all about. Today, he made a new recommendation via Twitter.
This time the Orioles icon had a recommendation for the next CBA and the commissioner’s salary. As Manfred seems more than willing to play with the players’ salaries, why not have the player get involved in his:
It is easy to see where Palmer stands on the issues ripping apart the world of the MLB.

Another iconic Orioles who made a statement in the Twitterverse today was one of the few former O’s players who will actually get to swing a bat in a real game: Adam Jones.
The former face of the team shared his 2020 baseball card from the Nippon Baseball League in Japan. The Orix Buffaloes have their first game on Friday. Jones still gets to wear his #10 as he roams the outfield for the Buffaloes. Jones is one of the oldest players on the team, but like many former MLB players who move to Japan, he will most likely success.
His baseball card looks good.
Finally, this little Tweet about the potential expanded playoffs in 2020 got people wondering about who the “someone really, really funny” is going to be. While the O’s did not get off to a good start in 2021, no one can predict the future.
Responses to this Tweet began with questions about the Orioles and Marlins. But, there are several other teams who could be accidentally playoff bound. Consider wonky teams like the Royals and Mariners. Maybe the Pirates, too? Although in the American League, the O’s really are the team that is expected to finish last. Even the Royals and Tigers have more proven veterans that the Birds.
However, if you’ve got a few dollars sitting around, it might be a fun to put them on the O’s accidentally making the playoffs. You might win big? Although the odds will certainly not be in your favor.
