Roch Around The Clock

February 04, 2007|By ROCH KUBATKO | ROCH KUBATKO,Sun Reporter

There's always room for Jello -- and another relief pitcher.

The Orioles have signed veteran right-hander Paul Shuey to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

Shuey, 36, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2003 and retired in April 2005 because of a hip injury.

I'm assuming he didn't have it replaced. Otherwise, Albert Belle will be making a comeback, too.

Shuey, a first-round draft pick in 1992, spent 10 years in the majors with the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers, going 45-27 with a 3.57 ERA in 451 appearances. He's among 24 non-roster invitees to spring training.

An interesting link, if you believe the Super Bowl should be a national holiday: superbowlmonday.com.

According to the site, Americans today will consume about 20 million pounds of potato chips and tortilla chips, and 8 million pounds of avocados.

And that's just at Tony Siragusa's house.
