Hey y'all, just a quick note. Starting today I'll be appearing on WNST-1570 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to impart my wisdom. Monday and Friday I'll be on at 7:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at 7:00 a.m. Check it out. And now back to your regularly scheduled bird droppings. -Stacey

In other Orioles news...
Rehabbing Roberts takes live BP | MLB.com: News
Bri Bob's first BP session went well and he plans on gradually increasing his intensity until he's up to full speed. -Stacey
Orioles infield trio plays together, stays together - baltimoresun.com
Back when they were 12 years old, Blake Davis, Justin Turner, and Scott Moore all played on the same little league team and now they're all at Spring Training together. Kinda cute. -Stacey
A Few Questions with Jim Hunter
Baltimore Sports Report catches up with Jim Hunter. -Stacey
Guthrie to start O's spring opener | MLB.com: News
Guthrie hopes to put his 2009 behind him and start fresh with the first Orioles game in the 2010 Grapefruit League. -Stacey
Roberts takes batting practice - baltimoresun.com
Roberts' BP is covered elsewhere. But to me, the interesting part of this article is Trembley saying Luuuuke is gonna play some first base(also mentioned by Roch above). I guess they haven't totally given up on him over there, after all. -zk
Mora looking to fit in with Rockies - USATODAY.com
Awesome. Another great Mora quote: "But I want to try something different and see if it works for me. [The Orioles are] rebuilding. I don't want to wait three more years (to win)." Three more years? Well, yeah, Melvin, without all your PLAYOFF EXPERIENCE and STRATEGIC BUNTING, I'm sure it will take the Orioles that long.
MLB Realignment on the Horizon?
Another stupid realignment article, this time from Fox Sports. Yo, chumps! Realigment solves nothing. Repeat after me: BALANCED SCHEDULE. -zk
