Jimenez Hurls 6 Strong Innings; Orioles Tie Rays 3-3 " CBS Baltimore
Ubaldo Jimenez gave a 2-run HR, but otherwise looked pretty good in 6 innings yesterday.
Manny Machado is most likely going to attempt to run today. If his calf is sore, Opening Day is probably out. There's all kinds of machinations with backdating the disabled list assignment to consider as well. You better just go read the article.
Because taking roster construction advice from Peter Schmuck is exactly what Dan Duquette needs to do. But, yeah, Jonathan Schoop has looked pretty good out there this spring.
I wonder if anyone on this planet aside from Buck Showalter actually calls J.J. Hardy "Textbook."
"I feel like I’m getting good at-bats, and I’m seeing a lot of pitches. So far, everything is good. I’m healthy, and I feel comfortable and the team has welcomed me," Nelson Cruz said. Sure, what else is he going to say, right? But a happy slugger is hopefully a productive slugger.
"Kevin Gausman closed his left eye while sitting in the clubhouse a few days ago and couldn't read the nameplates above the lockers across from him." And he's just NOW wearing glasses?
"The Baltimore Orioles are set to host two Operation Orange rallies over the next week to help build fan excitement for the upcoming 2014 season." Well, the promotions schedule sure isn't going to do it.
Happy Birthday to Bruce Howard, Lee May (stop striking out with RISP already!!!! My 10-year-old self hates you for that!), and Sam Bowens. On this day in Orioles history, not a thing happened. Go check for yourself.
