New, 278 comments

There's just one week until Opening day. The Orioles will supposedly make a bunch of roster cuts today. Also in today's links, another fifth starter candidate makes his case, a long-ago David Segui trade, and more.

One week until Opening Day. Can it be? Yes, friends. We are tantalizingly close to real, live baseball. If the meaningless stuff is your bag, the O's and Red Sox square off today in Grapefruit League ball at 1:05.
