The morning after
Not a great night for Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who struggled in his first appearance in the World Baseball Classic. Guthrie got hit around in a middle-inning relief appearance and the United States team lost for the first time, but Team USA had already qualified for the second stage of the tournament. Next up: Puerto Rico on Saturday.
The Orioles have a soft day today. No exhibition game is scheduled, so the team will play an intrasquad game at 11. I hope nobody minds, but I'm going to take part of the day off to see how many times I have to swing a golf club to get through 18 holes. I know all of you are curious about that.
Don't be surprised, however, if I pop back in once or twice with an update. I am, as you know, a multi-talented individual, though I'm not good at anything anybody gives a damn about.
