Mark was one of the only Baseball players I liked when I went to school with him. I wish he would come back to the O's for the rest of his career!

Mark played sports with my son in Green Hornets. The whole family is wonderful! Although I can't root for the team, I root for Mark. I'm so happy for Mark and his family that he has become sucessful. Mary Ann Rohr

He's a traitor. Had a chance to come back to his home, instead jumped on the Yankee bandwagon. He should stay in New York and not bother coming back to these parts, he's not welcome.

We Love our "ORIOLES", but ask any baseball player if a chance to play for the Yankees would take them away from their Hometown Team, and they would all say, "Take that chance". It's a once in a lifetime thing.. We love to hate the Yankees here in Baltimore, but they are the team to beat through the years. Now that we have a shot in the play-offs, I hope the Orioles make it all the way. Go "O's" !!!
