Orioles Catch-Up

OK, it's been a while since I posted. What's happened over the past few days?

The O's rocked Dice-K while beating the Red Sox but that would be the last time they would win.

Erik Bedard continues to be solid as do the primary bullpen corp.

Jeremy Guthrie continues to be impressive and probably has the inside track over Hayden Penn on the long relief role out of the bullpen.

Daniel Cabrera returned to his wild ways and gave up a three run homer in his last outing. I can't be too worried about one outing as Cabrera typically doesn't give up the long ball and this particular long ball was off the bat of Miguel Cabrera.

OK, let's hope for a win against the Twins today...

Paul Bako has returned and has yet to get a hit this spring (update: he got a hit this afternoon) and has been a bit suspect behind the plate. Adam Donachie continues to hit well and show some defensive prowess, hitting .333 for the spring in limited action.

Jason Dubois is making a case to stick with the big club (although he's still a long shot) hitting like crazy and showing some versatility playing leftfield and first base lately. J.R. House and Jon Knott will definitely get aced out if Dubois keeps hitting this way.

Perlozzo has all but named Jay Payton his regular leftfielder and Jay Gibbon's experiment at first base is abruptly and officially over.

Jaret Wright struggled this afternoon against the Marlins as the air of invincibility of the starting rotation begins to be chipped away.

Oh, and Brian Roberts finally signed an extension that will keep him in Baltimore through the end of 2009.
