Ides of March Bird Droppings

Note: Today's 1:05 p.m. Spring Training game vs the Red Sox is not being broadcast on TV or radio so we're not going to create a separate game thread for it. A good place for updates are Roch Kubatko's blog and Brittany Ghiroli's Twitter, as well as the ever popular box score refresh (feel free to share in the comments!)

From Yesterday's Game

Matusz shuts down powerful Phillies as O's win, 4-3 - baltimoresun.com
Brian Matusz continued with his strong spring, allowing one run on three hits while striking out two. Matusz now has 12 Ks and 0 BBs on the year. Not too shabby. Adam Jones and Nick Markakis each had two hits. -Stacey

More on Matusz
Not only did he have zero walks yesterday, Matusz reminds us that he also never went to a three ball count. -Stacey

Dinks and dunks do in Johnson
Jim Johnson had a tough time, but was victim of some bad luck. Will Ohman continues to be effective. -Stacey

Lame Birds

Mike Gonzalez has a stiff back
O's closer Michael Gonzalez recorded two outs in Saturday's "B" game vs. the Marlins before exiting with lower back stiffness, but he said Sunday that he didn't think the injury was serious. -Stacey

MacPhail talks about Roberts
Andy MacPhail sounds less confident every day and continues to look for options in case Brian Roberts isn't ready to start the year. -Stacey

Reimold on a good schedule
Diamond Dave is confident that Reimold is fine, they're just taking it slow because they can. I want to believe that some injury isn't that bad, might as well be this one. -Stacey

Aubrey's injury
Michael Aubrey exited Saturday's game with a tight groin and is still feeling it. He's day-to-day. -Stacey

Pie's shoulder progressing
Felix Pie will do exercises today and hit and throw tomorrow, hoping to return to the lineup soon. He's been bothered by shoulder tendinitis. -Stacey

And The Rest

More genius from the wayward oriole
The long awaited Nick Markakis Blingee is unveiled. -Stacey

On Pi Day, one number 'reeks of mystery' - CNN.com
It's a shame that Felix's shoulder has been hurting, because yesterday was, in fact, π day. -zk
