Conine Baltimore Bound

New, 8 comments

Mr. Marlin is heading north to become a member of the Orioles.

Jeff Conine is headed back to Baltimore.

The Orioles and Conine agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $1.7 million contract that allows him to earn another $650,000 in performance bonuses next year based on plate appearances and games.

Good for Jeff.  He is expected to play a big role on the Orioles team next year.  Conine will be playing left-field, first base and DH.  Presumably not all at the same time.

I can't decide whether Castillo or Conine is playing the role of the Scarecrow in our Wizard of Oz tale.  Maybe it is a dual role but I do know this:  Scarecrow, I will miss you most of all.
