Pretty exciting finish to a meaningless spring training game today
Blue Jays scored 2 runs in the top of the ninth to lead 10-8 going into bottom of
The good guys scored 3 runs with two outs and two on to win it.
Ryan Flaherty with his third hit of the day...a three run bomb.
Wish I couldve been there for that.
Birds win 11-10.

At least Flaherty is making a pretty good case to make the Opening Day roster. I would rather see him than Casilla to back up Roberts & JJ in a pinch.

I looked up and saw the count was 3-2 and knew a fastball was coming. I told my wife that "we might see a walk off jack here" and sure enough it went. Of course I can just say I called it and have no proof...but I really did call it

I'm excited that they're showing an O's replay tonight. Every time I've looked at masn it's been the Nationals being replayed.

Today's Win is Meaningful
I know that spring training isn't about winning and losing and I know that records in spring training don't carry over to the regular season. But, that doesn't mean that today's win isn't important. The Orioles have developed a winning chemistry and to a man, have heard how Toronto will win the division and the Orioles might get lucky and contend for a wild card. The one consistent thing I have heard from everybody that has been to Sarasota is that the Orioles are a very confident and professionally run group. Don't think the starters aren't proud of winning today. Don't think they didn't give Flaherty a big hug in the clubhouse. I believe the guys in orange today have developed a lot of pride in this organization and I believe that really matters. Games like today solidify that and bring the backups and starters closer which is a very good formula for winning.

We know these games are exhibition games, but I believe the O's are playing to win them just the same.

Agree 100%. These guys are playing to win them. Let's hope the successful 2012 season and positive spring training results will continue their winning ways.
