Orioles: Quick hits

Dany Baez says his arm feels "perfect" the day after throwing 77 pitches against the New York Mets.

John Parrish is headed to Baltimore to have his shoulder examined and probably scoped.

Brad Hennessey will start the season on the DL and go to extended spring training in Sarasota, but Dave Trembley said he is getting close to throwing off a mound.

Rich Hill and Koji Uehara are scheduled to throw to hitters in batting practice tomorrow. Hill threw on the side again today.

Does anyone else think we are going to lose 100+ games this year???

I think Baez's arm could be falling off and he'd say "Perfect" so he could be a SP.

Will the Pennster make the team with the O's this spring? Dude can deal, but might have a marble brain. What's your take.

Rock on

Pete's reply: I think Penn's status will be determined over his next two appearances. I believe it's 50-50.


We've hit a wall here! other than Hill and Koji it's time to part ways with the rest of these bums! Really, they aren't too good and they aren't to reliable health wise And to the Cereal Blogger yes were going to lose 100 games but I think most of us felt that way during free agency we weren't even looking at the mid level starters just the bums!

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.
