The Orioles have won three games in a row coming into today, and for the first time in awhile we see a pretty good representation of the opening day lineup (2B and LF notwithstanding). Jason Berken will make the first spring start for the O's this year. Berken has had a good spring, allowing just one run over his four outings. The Blue Jays counter with Brian Tallet.
A player to watch is Nolan Reimold. He's hitless for the spring and is said to be limping all over the place. Troublesome. Combine that with Felix Pie's bum shoulder (he hopes to be in a game by Saturday) and Lou Montanez is starting to get excited.
Today's game will be broadcast locally on 105.7 The Fan (Welcome back, Joe Angel) and is available on Gameday Audio and XM176.
