Orioles spring training game thread: vs. Blue Jays, 1:05

It's the third home game in a row for the Orioles, which means the third day in a row of an A-list lineup. Will today be the day Matt Wieters busts out of his spring slump? When will you start worrying about it?

All hands, brace for impact. Drew Hutchison is pitching against the Orioles today. Sure, it's spring training, so he won't be pitching against them for more than a few innings even if he dominates, but still. Sometimes it seems like the O's singlehandedly prolonged his time in the big leagues last year.

It's now been three straight spring home games in a row, which means a few looks in a row at something resembling the A-list lineup. Of course it's early, but much of it, especially the heart, has not looked like they are ready. Well, that's why there's a little over three weeks more before they have to do it for real. A lot of rust can get shaken off in three weeks.

This game will be broadcast on 105.7 FM in Baltimore. Enjoy Joe and Fred, as long as you have a cool boss.
