Baltimore City Council condemns Trump's rhetoric, days before his visit

Jesse Orosco

Who was the oldest player to wear an Orioles' uniform?

Who was the oldest player to wear an Orioles' uniform?

When I reported that the Orioles had held a brief workout for lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes at Camden Yards on Thursday, I received a whole lot of age jokes on my Twitter account.

For once, they weren’t aimed at me.

Rhodes, who didn’t pitch professionally in 2012 and was last seen winning a World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, turned 43 in October. (That’s actually slightly older than me, so take that).

I think the best line I saw on Twitter was from the guy who asked me if Rhodes had developed a deer-antler spitball to get hitters out. Hey, insulting and topical.

Honestly, it's very unlikely that Rhodes will receive an invitation...
