Orioles: Pregame Trembley
Manager Dave Trembley expanded on his upcoming decision whether to go with a 12-man or a 13-man pitching staff, which figures to come during the final 10 days of training camp and depend on the performance of several pitchers and position players.
"If you go with 13 pitchers, I think you are trying to cover for your starters,'' he said. "I don't think you need to cover for (Jeremy) Guthrie or Koji (Uehara), but the other three, until they are determined, we have to be prepared to go with 13 pitchers.
"That's why we're anxious to see some of these guys out there on the hill that haven't been out there. They'll make that decision for us."
Celebrity watch: Miami Dolphins executive vice president Bill Parcells was on the field before the game along with Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano and former Green Bay Packers GM Ron Wolf. Wolf, by the way, lives in Annapolis, so he might be rooting for the Orioles today.
