Batted lead off today for Orioles. Possible candidate to do so in regular season. Went 1-for-2 with a single, walk, and strikeout. Stole a base and scored on Davis's RBI triple. Also made a nice diving catch in LF. Shades of McLouth anyone? - 3/1

Living on the Edge-mer, out of options and competing for a bullpen spot, not off to a good start. Allowed 5 earned runs, a walk, four hits, and a home run to Dan Johnson in his inning of work - 3/1

Yes, that's what I call him. Back-to-back multi hit games for a nice Spring start. 3-run triple today vs TOR; Out-of-options and has decent chance of making team - 3/1

Yea, went there. Steve off to a nice start. Worked two perfect innings against the Blue Jays starting lineup, striking out Joey Bats and Adam Lind - 3/1

Buck has stated in interviews that the ability to hit is nice, but the main separation factor in the backup catcher battle this Spring will be defensive abilities. Monell didn't control the run game too well today, allowing Anthony Gose to steal on him twice - 3/1

Nolan dealing with a food poisoning which kept him out of today's action; Is seemingly healthy otherwise but doesn't look like he's in "baseball shape" yet; Would say Pearce and Young have a small leg up on him for now - 3/3

Made his Spring debut today; Pitched scoreless inning of relief with a strikeout; Many think the non-roster veteran who can fill a variety of roles has a favorable shot at claiming one of the bullpen spots currently up for grabs - 3/3

Buck likes his veterans and Alex Gonzo a 15-year vet appears to be in good shape again after missing most of the 2013 season. I'm changing his status to bubble because he has been seeing starts at 3B with the projected regulars and may have a shot at starting there on opening day if worse comes to worse and Machado has to start out on the DL - 3/3

Escalona to be shut down for at least three weeks with shoulder inflamation. Most likely he will start the year on the DL which could make it easier for him to get passed through waivers in April when he comes off.

Edge has been de-bolded from bubble status as a result. This news probably helps Stinson's chances of making the team.

    • o   There was something else in that biography that I read that pertained to Robinson finishing anything that he possibly could in which he deemed was important ........ it was the night that he got into an altercation with a cook at a diner that he was eating dinner at early in his career.   According to Robinson, the cook was making threatening motions toward him with a  knife. Robinson retaliated by drawing a gun that he carried with him to defend himself in such situations. The cook immediately started screaming for help, and that this "crazy man" was trying to kill him.   Frank was subsequently arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, and released on his own recognizance ........ and then promptly went back to that same diner to finish his dinner.   o
    • o   If I was psyched enough to travel to Boston to see the last-place Orioles play at Fenway Park in September of 2009, I suppose that there isn't anything Orioles-related that I won't be psyched for ........ although I concede that Spring Training games that don't count in the standings takes a lot of luster of it off for me ........ I'd rather watch the AAA-Tides in a game that counts than watch the Orioles in a game that doesn't count. That's how my fandom is wired.   o
    • I'm definitely looking forward to watching some spring training games. I love watching the minor leaguers and seeing how they handle their opportunities. 
    • You pay him more than you need to this season and then overpay him the next 3 seasons.
    • Dumb move.  He is rated as 75th best corner.  And you are going to pay him 8 million a season?  I see no point in offering him a contract now.  Did they think he would get more than 8 million a year in free agency?  What if he gets injured this season?
    • Supposedly Madison Bumgarner dated a girl in high school who was named Madison Bumgarner.   They weren't related. Not the same thing, but probably just as unique. And Rougned Odor's brother is named Rougned Odor.
    • I regret that many younger Os fans never got to watch Frank in action as a player. He was as good as they come, Best Orioles hitter to ever don the uniform bar none. I recall fondly as a kid when he arrived in the greatest trade in Orioles history how unbelievably awesome he was. He imo was as good as Aaron or Mays but just wasn’t as heralded for some reason. When he won the Triple Crown I was in awe and it seemed to cement my young mind that the National League was superior as they more superstars than the AL and Frank’s performance demonstrated it clearly even more so in his clutch homers in the WS sweep of the Dodgers against their HOF pitchers. May he RIP as one of my greatest sports heroes ever. Up there with Brooks, Johnny U, Jim, Gino, Cal, Ray, Lenny,  and Eddie.
