There are now 30 days remaining until Orioles Opening Day. That is less than one month, although with all of the snow on the ground it's really not much of a consolation prize. Then again, if you aren't in the area at all, you probably don't even care. I have it on good authority that my friend and former Camden Chat boss Stacey is enjoying spring training this weekend.
Whatever the Orioles do and whoever plays, it's still nice weather. This afternoon's game will be on 105.7 FM for those who want to listen. That will make it feel even warmer.
Here's some news from around Birdland to get your weekend going:

The lone former Oriole with a birthday today is Joe Carter, who was here for part of the 1998 season. I forgot all about that, but then, 1998 kind of wasn't very good.
And that's the way it is in BIrdland on March 7 - at least, unless something happens later. Have a safe Saturday.
