If ST is any indication. from a starting pitching point of view, we are in for a longer season then we could have imagined..

The defense committed a season's worth of errors today too.

Hess and Means are the only starters to do reasonably well. Means has never been much, but then suddenly increased velo to 92-95 after attending some pitching camp.Wright's doing well, but we've seen that before.And NOBODY can convince me that Bundy's arm isn't bad.

The hitting is uncertain. Some kids are wailing the hell out of the ball right now.But if they tail off later in ST, the offense w/b terrible too.

Lotta weak hitting at catcher and the infield spots.

Sisco's OPS is 1.796. Cervenka is over 2. Two more C are over 900. Wynns is about .500. He can catch up to Davis with one good game.

Rogers may make the rotation too.

It's going to be another season of pain. Bundy has not been the same since the TJ surgery. I think there are a number of positional players who have some promise, and a few young bullpen arms.

I think their best relievers are Kline and Yacobonis. The latter is devastating for 2 innings. Quit "stretching him out," and go w/him in short relief. I'd start w/Givens as closer, but watch Kline.

I don't think those catchers w/hit that much. Hope I'm terribly wrong here.

There will be substantial opportunities for relievers to showcase themselves. Attrition alone should turn the bullpen over a couple of times.

I think Cobb will bounce back this year. Then he will probably be traded to a contender.

Givens is looking nothing like a closer this spring. Starting to wonder if the league has caught up to him.

The Orioles’ .269 batting average, 42 doubles, 110 RBIs, 117 runs scored, 303 total bases and 22 steals rank first in the Grapefruit League. Their .812 OPS is second.

But look who's doing the hitting: scrubs who won't be w/the team getting hits off the other teams' scrub pitchers.Mancini, Davis, Villar, and Mullins are all below .200.

So did Rogers. He was my secret backup plan. Now it's Travis Driskill.

Rogers is cannon fodder; so are Tate and Carroll.That was the worst trade we made last summer.Means goes today. He'd showed some promise till his last outing.

I wouldn't give up on Carroll right now. Tate, I agree, I'm not optimistic about him.
