Notebook: Trembley focused on fundamentals -
I'm all about fundamentals, trust me. But if by "fundamentals" they mean bunting and the hit-and-run it's going to be a long season. -Stacey

Trembley's challenge: Keeping everyone happy -
It'll be tough to get Ty Wigginton and Felix Pie regular at bats but Trembley is going to do his best. It's really too bad Garrett Atkins will be sucking up all that playing time. -Stacey

Lou's seen his future, and deals with it -
Lou Montanez knows it's almost impossible for him to make the club with the current roster. And after some salary adjustments, he says he's fine with AAA if it doesn't work out for him. "But it's OK," he continued. "It's different from past years because I feel more respected by the Orioles. They've taken care of me salary-wise and Triple-A. I feel that, if I don't make the team, I'm still respected and they're saying, 'Hey, it might not be fair, but we're taking care of you,' which makes me feel good." -duck
