Orioles: Matusz rolls (updated)

Top 2008 draft choice Brian Matusz continues to impress. He just finished three very strong innings in which he gave up just one hit. In his first exhibition appearance on Saturday, he gave up a hit and a walk over 1 2/3 innings and struck out three.

Chris Ray also has pitched today, giving up one hit in a scoreless fifth inning. Wilfrido Perez is warming up for the ninth.

Thanks for all the updates. I left there over the w/end to come back to 9 inches of snow in Richmond. Too bad one more week wasn't in the plans.

It sounds like a-rod is out until mid May Does Melvin have a no trade or does he have a chance to be dealt?


..............................................................................................
Pete's reply: He has a full no-trade.

This spring is going ridiculously well - Pete, do you think the O's can win 116 games this season?

I know it's only Spring Training but I'm loving what I'm reading from you and Jeff and the rest. Yes, we could still finish in last but I could see the Birds finishing as high as 3rd and with a 0.500 record if a few breaks go our way.
I've got the 3-game set in Seattle the 1st week on June penciled in my schedule and I can't wait. Great city, great food, great stadium and a chance to see Jr. Griffey play. Pete, if you travel with the team for this West Coast swing, I'll buy you dinner one night at your favorite Seattle restaurant!

Pete's reply: That would be great, but they won't send me out there.

The only question left for this stud Oriole pitching prospect is...when is his Tommy John surgery scheduled for?

KyleProBoller7-That is a ridiculous and immature statement. Think positive and good things will happen...

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.
