Orioles early birds pounce on spring training seats |
"Baltimore Orioles spring training tickets were snapped up by an eager, albeit slightly older crowd Saturday morning at Ed Smith Stadium."

Orioles: Notes on Edwin Jackson and Koji Uehara -
"Fox Sports has reported that free-agent right-hander Edwin Jackson has multiple three-year offers available. Not sure if the Orioles are one of the teams that have made an offer, but it would make sense if they were. The Orioles like Jackson and would love to have another right-handed innings eater toward the top of their rotation." Actually, I'm not so sure it would make sense.

Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson injured in fall, misses DiMaggio event
"Robinson, 74, fell backward from a stage during a charity dinner featuring retired players at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino & Hotel in Hollywood. Several retired players said they were told Robinson had two fractures in his rear shoulder area, including a broken clavicle. They also said Robinson was alert and responsive as paramedics treated him."

Looking at the AL East prospects - Baltimore Sun
"There’s great news and not-so-good news for Orioles fans. First, the good: The Orioles are the only team in baseball to have two players in the top 10 -- shortstop Manny Machado and pitcher Dylan Bundy....The bad news is that the Orioles had no other minor leaguer listed in the top 100."

School of Roch: Hudson claimed by Rangers
"I just returned from the Shorebirds Hot Stove Banquet at the Delmar VFW, where I was introduced to slippery dumplings. Where have they been all my life?" The food was fantastic. I don't know how Roch has lived in Maryland all these years and not had slick dumplings. But I digress. Kyle Hudson was claimed by the Texas Rangers. I still think the fact Roch's never had slick dumplings is more newsworthy, though. Oh, and we're supposed to be paying attention to the Cardinals, per Roch's buddy in St. Louis.
