OF Brandon Guyer and wife Lindsay are set for the scheduled C-section birth of their second child this afternoon, a son they will name Camden. Guyer said they liked the sound of the name but also acknowledged the family history — in that he made his big-league debut at Baltimore's Camden Yards and homered in his first plate appearance there as Lindsay was on her way from work as a Washington, D.C., sports anchor. "We love the name, but it has a little extra meaning to it," Guyer said.
