Click here for the April 2014 roundup.
Before Spring Training, MASN came to us and asked if we wished to take
part in a weekly series for their Orioles Buzz feature. We could write
about anything we wanted as long as it did not cross over into beat
territory. We are not beat writers, so that was peachy for us. Below
is a roundup of our April articles. The writing is a bit different on
MASN. We are limited to about 750 words and have taken a broader
approach with our writing, often applying lessons learned from pieces we
have written here.
