Spring training is winding down. I am ready for real baseball!

Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters! Opening Day is getting so close. Can you feel it? There are just a handful of spring games left before the team heads to New York for Opening Day against the Yankees.

Yesterday the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays 4-3 on the road. Opening Day pitcher Alex Cobb pitched five innings in which he gave up three runs, but he didn’t allow a homer or a walk and he struck out eight. That sounds pretty good to me other than the three runs. Austin Hays continued his strong spring with his fifth home run of the season.

The Orioles are at home today against the Yankees. Mike Wright is making the St. Patrick’s Day start, continuing his bid to make the starting rotation. Also scheduled to pitch are Yefry Ramirez, Pedro Araujo, Miguel Castro, Paul Fry, and Branden Kline. Did you know that Paul Fry hasn’t allowed a run yet this spring? It’s true! #TeamPaul

Today’s game will be on both MASN and 105.7. So enjoy!

I could tell you this by the number of times I've seen a player in a spring training game and said to myself, "Who?"

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! Your Orioles birthday buddy is Chris Davis! Your favorite first baseman turns 33 years old today. It’s also the birthday of Raul Chavez, who appeared in 16 games for the 2006 Orioles. Today is Chavez’s 46th birthday.
