Around the Oriole Blog-O-Sphere: Future Watch Edition

Baltimore Sports Report has a video interview with Orioles 2B prospect LJ Hoes.

Camden Crazies looks at the merits of Jake Fox and concludes that he would be a significant upgrade from Garrett Atkins. I agree.

Dean Hybl of ponders if Brad Bergesen could be the next Jim Palmer. Not likely but Dean does remind us of the circuitous route many players take to success.

Weaver's Tantrum takes a look at the company the 2010 Orioles are keeping: the 1988 Orioles and the 1962 Mets.

Roar from 34 wonders if the "Baltimore" on the front of the road jerseys has been replaced with another term. (All you jerks who whined and bitched about getting "Baltimore" back on the jerseys can stick it. It hasn't mattered one iota in how the team is perceived. I'm looking at you WNST.)

Oriole Insider reports that the team has contacted Buck Showalter regarding their managerial vacancy.

Eutaw Street Hooligans call for a reality check among O's fans and they are correct...just not sure a guy who blogs about this team can take their advice.

A bit of Spring Training News:

Circuit Judge Bob Bennett ruled Wednesday that construction can continue at Ed Smith Stadium, dealing the first courtroom defeat to two citizens groups trying to stop a taxpayer-financed renovation of the ballpark....

"Outstanding," Orioles attorney Alan Rifkin whispered in court as the judge ruled.

Can we add this to the Oriole win column?
