Perhaps Baltimore is Iron City

Tom Verducci's analysis of A-Rod's injury makes this mention of Oriole great Brooks Robinson: "Only three third basemen age 33 or older ever managed more than two seasons with at least 150 games: Brooks Robinson, Pete Rose and Mike Schmidt."

With Iron Men like Ripken and Robinson, perhaps Baltimore should steal Pittsburgh's moniker as Iron City. Surely Mayor "Steelerstahl" would block any such effort.

Hi Roar from 34! Great name.

Robinson is the man...
Ravenstahl was something.

Good writing.
