Orioles spring training game 5 thread: at Blue Jays, 1:07

Last night, the Orioles regulars beat the Blue Jays reserves. This afternoon, it will be Orioles reserves against Blue Jays regulars. Mike Wright will open up the game on the mound for the O's.

Even when they're in Florida and they aren't on TV, the Blue Jays have games start at the weird time of :07 after the hour. What is this about? I often wonder. Truth in advertising, perhaps, because most O's games actually have first pitch at 7:07 or 7:08 even though the schedule is 7:05.

The Orioles beat the Blue Jays last night, but that was a different bunch of Orioles and Blue Jays. Now the shoe is on the other foot, with mostly Orioles reserves and Blue Jays starters. Well, some Blue Jays starters. I don't know that Chris Colabello will be starting for them much in the regular season.

Mike Wright is your starting pitcher for the Orioles, with others in the bullpen including Ryan Webb, Steve Johnson, Logan Verrett, Oliver Drake, Eddie Gamboa, and Tim Berry.
