"A lot of it is just kind of familiarizing yourself with them. And I want the guys to be comfortable when they get here, too. I want them to be familiar with the people, familiar with the facility, so when they get here all they've got to do is get ready to play.

"Also, we're checking on their offseason program and making sure they've all done what they were supposed to."

Buck wanted Heim in Florida early.

Alex Hassan, who's dealing with an undisclosed health issue, and third baseman Manny Machado, who's recovering from a well-publicized second knee surgery. Catchers Michael Ohlman, Jonah Heim and Alex Murphy also are here.

Manager Buck Showalter, who came to the complex this morning, said he wanted to get Heim out of Buffalo. You never know when a major snowstorm will hit the area.

"Give him a little head start because weather's an issue with him,"

His column today sounded like (to me) that he is heading down. Couple quotes:

It will be good to watch Dylan Bundy throw. It's always good to watch Dylan Bundy throw.

I haven't seen left-hander Brian Gonzalez, the Orioles' first pick (in the third round) of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft. Now I've got my opportunity.

I'll also have a chance to meet new hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh. I've heard a lot of good things about him.

He's been there since yesterday. The by-line, where it says "Sarasota," is a good hint.

I love this fan base acting like Alex Hassan is gonna save the 2015 Orioles. The guy is 26 and never played in MLB.

I don't see that the fan base is acting like Hassan is going to save the 2015 Orioles. Where do you get that? By the way, FYI, Hassan did appear in the majors for Boston last year.

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
