August 7: O’s Happy Bdays…Not

Happy birthday Geronimo Gil. Geronimo played parts of 5 season with the Orioles from 2001-2005. His best season came in 2002 when he hit 12 home runs and drove in 45. He was solid defensively: throwing out 31% of base runners attempting to steal during his career. After the 02’ season Geronimo bounced between Triple A and the bigs, never playing in more than 64 games. The Orioles released him in 2006 and he’s still playing ball in the Mexican League. Happy 34th Mr. Gil.

Happy birthday Jason Grimsley…not. Jason played 2 seasons for the Orioles in 2004-2005. He went 3-6 with a 4.78 ERA during that time. Worse than those awful numbers, he sold out his teammates (Tejada, Gibbons & Roberts) as anabolic steroid users. Besides cheating with the steroids for nearly 10 years and selling out teammates, he also stole Albert Belle’s corked bat from the umpires room. ESPN named him the 4th biggest cheater in MLB history. No happy birthday for you Jason, you suck.
Cheers and Hail
