Friday Bird Droppings

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Can the Orioles win another series in the early days of the 2015 season? Seems like taking three (or four?!) games from the Red Sox maybe a tall order, but the Orioles have the power of Ubaldo on their side. Remember: after tonight's 7:10 start, the rest of the games this series are day games (including Monday's 11 am Patriots Day start).

Around the league, the Cubs are calling up highly touted rookie Kris Bryant (remember that feeling?) and Jose Reyes left last night's Blue Jays game with an injury. Same as it ever was.
