Today's O's vs. Marlins Spring Training Game

New, 50 comments

The game isn't being broadcast by 105.7 today, but if you want to listen and don't have mlb.com's audio package, it'll be broadcast on the Marlins radio network, found here: http://www.790theticket.com/. Sadly I tried to tune in and my work computer doesn't have the right settings.

Koji Uehara makes his Orioles exhibition debut, also secheduled to pitch are Hayden Penn, Mark Hendrickson, Jim Hoey, and Jake Arrieta. It'll be interesting to see how Koji fares his first time out and I always have an interest in Hayden Penn. Jake had a good first outing vs Team Italia that he can hopefully build on.

The Orioles won't get to face Jay Gibbons this series as he's not scheduled to play the next two games. Too bad....haha.

Adam Jones is out with a sore arm so we'll get to get our first look at Felix Pie in the field playing CF. Here's the lineup in its entirety:

Ryan Freel - RF
Felix Pie - CF
Luke Scott - LF
Melvin Mora - 3B
Ty Wigginton - 1B
Matt Wieters - DH
Chris Gomez - 2B
Gregg Zaun - C
Jolbert Cabrera - SS
Koji Uehara - P

In other news, Nick Markakis has left the team to be with his wife as they await the birth of their first child, so we probably won't see him for a few days.

I know SC has professed his impatience with Spring Training but I'm quite the opposite. I love it. By the end I'll be ready for it to be finished, and I wish there were more games on TV, but overall Spring Training is such an exciting time for me.

Play ball!
