O's articles at MLB.com

Of course, MLB.com has to promote all its teams. So you can take a lead-in like Orioles aiming to crash AL East party with a grain of salt.

Nonetheless, there's some nice information to be mined here, in:

  • a puff piece about the O's chances this season
  • a great profile on Markakis which almost makes it sound probable that he'll come north in April. The kid seems really ready;
  • a lightweight piece about Benson of the "we're running out of things to write about variety"; and
  • a section called quick hits, which basically summarizes the team's ups and downs: they like our infied, they question our bullpen.
  • Also, a brief summary of our minor league propects, including this Brandon Snyder quote:

    Snyder could be the best hitting prospect in the system, and that includes Markakis. He's got a very advanced approach, especially for his age, hititng with power to all fields. While he has the tools to catch, he doesn't have much experience behind the plate. He's a work in progress defensively and the O's will have him catch and play some third, with hopes he develops into a legitimate catcher. He'll get going on that path in Delmarva.

    Lots to go with your coffee this Monday.
