Sweet!!!

What, no Roberts? No Lee? Oh no, the Orioles are doomed, they might not win 50 games this year, two of their key guys not in the lineup for the first intrasquad game of the year! What on earth is MacPhail thinking???

Now that I've got that out of my system(and hopefully stolen some of wayne's or blancione's thunder), this first clash of the titans seems a bit tilted to the home side.


Interesting defensive shift by the Visitors team: two right fielders and no one in left....

But seriously, Jeff, at least you're covering the Orioles this morning, and I thank you for that. Mr. Schmuck, meanwhile, has precious little to say about baseball, and nothing whatsoever about the O's, while the little Schmucksters on his blog are reduced to debating "Wayne -- jerk or genius?"

Meanwhile, up in Boston, the eminent Mr. Nick Cafardo has written a very nice feature on the Orioles as the lead-in to his excellent weekly column. Read it here:

http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/articles/2011/02/27/orioles_finally_may_be_ready_to_buck_losing_trend/

...And read all the way to the end. There are a few additional Orioles nuggets awaiting those who do.

Enjoy!

About the bloggers
A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer. If you want more of his insight on the Orioles and other sports issues, check out his personal blog -- The Schmuck Stops Here.
