Orioles: More about Koji

Koji Uehara had a history of leg problems in Japan, so the Japanese media wasn't particularly surprised that he was getting treatment today for a hamstring strain. He told them that he feels like he'll have plenty of time to build his stamina for the regular season.

He has made two Grapefruit League starts and one start against the Dominican national team, and still figures to get three more exhibition starts even if he misses his next two scheduled games. That would give him six spring starts, which is about the normal number for someone who figures to be near the front of the regular season rotation.

Man, the way this spring is going are the O's even going to have two healthy starters? They're dropping like flies down there in Florida, is this something the conditioning coach needs to look into? Are they being worked wrong? This surely seems like a hell of a lot of injuries in such a short time.

Peter, how about that Eugene Kingsale!!

Hey Pete, when I was watching Baseball Tonight earlier (getting ready to watch Italy vs. Canada), the box score, for some reason, showed today's game with the Red Sox winning 2-0. Do you know where they got that from?

Pete's reply: Wow, I have no idea.

Way off topic I know, but... The Rams just let Pace go to get Cap room. IF he still has anything in the tank the Ravens should jump all over that.

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.
