Today is an uncommon spring treat of finding the Orioles on television, although that will only benefit you if you are at a place where you can watch MLB Network in the middle of a Friday afternoon. Even if you can watch MLB Network it may not necessarily benefit you. Look at these lineups! What is the Blue Jays lineup, even? You're at home! You're not supposed to be playing this parade of guys.
It may end up being that not having to watch Ubaldo Jimenez's start will prove to be the greater outcome. For all that there were some glowing stories about his cleaned up mechanics based on like three bullpen sessions in the first two weeks of spring training, that hasn't shown itself much against live hitters. Maybe today will be the day it's different.
The Orioles are 3-8 so far in spring training. I know that it doesn't count, so it's not exactly meaningful. But it's not much fun to watch either.
