So many ties. You'd think the O's we're bumping up against Father's Day, not Easter. Luckily, this is just Spring Training and records don't matter, right? After all, hard to imagine they'll have to rely on the powerhouse combination of Paul Janish and Steve Tolleson in the regular season, right? At any rate, Rule 5 Rickard is looking more and more like a lock to stick with the team and Jonathan Schoop looks primed for a breakout.
