Orioles: Hill on hill

Talked to Rich Hill a few minutes ago and he said that he never was planning on throwing today, even though manager Dave Trembley said yesterday that his bullpen session had been moved up.

He took today off from throwing after throwing long-toss the past two days, and says he's anxious to get out there tomorrow.

"It feels like forever,'' he said. "It's not fun. I went through this all year last year to fight back from the back injury. It's frustrating, but those things happen."

He insists that his arm has responded well to throwing long toss four of the last five days.

"It's going great,'' he said.

"It's going great,'' he said.

Isn't that what the guy who fell off the Empire State Building was heard saying as he passed all the floors?

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
