The 2022 season will be one in which many of the most significant products of the Orioles’ rebuilding project will arrive in Baltimore, where they’ll hope to add to the stories already told between being acquired and reaching the majors. That’s certainly the case for catcher Adley Rutschman, the Orioles’ and baseball’s top prospect. Drafted first overall in 2019, Rutschman has been the face of the Orioles’ rebuild ever since. At last, he’ll be the face of their major league team as well, joining the club Saturday for his long-awaited debut. Here’s a look back at Rutschman’s journey in the organization, as told by The Baltimore Sun, from the 2019 draft’s first pick up to Saturday’s first game at Camden Yards.

When Angelyn Burk, a recently retired accountant, decided to crunch some numbers one evening last year, she made a stunning discovery: It would be cheaper for her and her husband to spend their retirement perpetually aboard cruise ships than to continue living on land. "This is how I want to retire," Angelyn, 53, decided in that moment. "Life is too short." She turned to her husband, Richard Burk, and said: "We can do this. Let's make cruise ships our home."

The couple had thoroughly enjoyed the nearly 10 cruises they had been on together in the past, and they have a mutual love for travel as well as a shared disdain for airports. They looked online and determined that, on average, they could string together voyages on various cruise ships for markedly less money than their collective cost of living on land.

Things are always more interesting around here when the Yankees look like the YANKEES again, which means looking like they have a chance to be great again. That hasn’t happened in a while, maybe not since the American League Championship Series of 2019, one the Astros won with that buzzer-beating walk-off homer from our old friend, Jose Altuve. They’ve definitely looked great so far, as just about everything possible has broken exactly right for them. They’ve been carried by their pitching, both starting and relief, by Aaron Judge and their other starting forward, Giancarlo Stanton. Judge and Stanton, of course, are the only two guys with 50-home run seasons on their resumes playing for the Yankees at the same time since Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris were those guys in the ‘60s. They have also been remarkably healthy until Chad Green, one of the horses in Aaron Boone’s bullpen, came up with a sore forearm the other day in Baltimore. You add it all up, and there are plenty of … [Read more...] about Mike Lupica: How good are these Yankees? We’ll find out over the next month
