According to this blog entry by Roch Kubato over at, O’s officials actually expect Jeremy Guthrie to make the big club. Guthrie is out of options meaning he would have to clear waivers to be sent to Norfolk which is unlikely. If the O’s want to keep him, they will have to keep him in Baltimore.

I had Guthrie pegged for AAA all the way but I was dead wrong. To quote from Roch’s blog:

Another scenario, depending on how everything unfolds in spring training, is Guthrie making the rotation and Adam Loewen being the second leftie in the 'pen.

Either way, Hayden Penn might want to start looking for housing in Norfolk right now.

Add this to the interesting things to watch during Spring Training.

A documentary is being made about the old Baltimore Orioles of the International League called The Forgotten Birds. Any rememberences are being accepted at their website.
FanFest has been rescheduled for April. Better than nothing but a bad move having it so close to Opening Day.
Ripken Baseball Inc. is making a bid for the AA Harrisburg Senators.
