Thursday Bird Droppings

March 7, 2012; Sarasota, FL, USA; Baltimore Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen (16) throws in the first inning against the Minnesota Twins at Ed Smith Stadium.

Yesterday Jon Heyman was making some noise about the Orioles being interested in Johnny Damon, but given that Damon is a Scott Boras client, I'm not going to bother linking as though it's something we should really be talking about. There is really no reason to sign him.

Lovely Spring Training pictures, the kind that always make me wonder why I've never gone to Spring Training.
