Wednesday Bird Droppings: PLAY BALL!!

The O's take on the Rays today at 1:05 pm, in a game that will preview the 2011 AL Wild Card game. The game will be broadcast locally on 105.7 so hopefully Joe Angel and I will have a lovely afternoon together. You might note that I created a Spring Training schedule on the right sidebar complete with any broadcast options. -Stacey
