    That little RS troll was making a lot of noise about how well Lackey did against a AA & AAA line-up, lol.

    They really want to win this game, eh?

    Good test for Mitre, this is better for him if he does well against the O’s A line-up. I still see him as the long man.

    Mark Prior could be a feel good story if it isn’t already, the kid needs a break and would really like to see him pitching in the majors this season at some point

    Going out for dinner, you all have a great night.

    Zach Britton is the Orioles best pitching prospect, will be fun to see if the game is televised (I don’t think it is). He is the one O’s prospect or player last year that didn’t take a huge step back. The rest all crashed horribly.

    looking at the O’s lineup they are going to score a lot of runs this year

    The only possible bullpen opening, absent a trade, is long man. I wonder if he is capable of 3-4 innings.

  9. austinmac March 7th, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Prior, that is.

    Oh, Ok.

    Just in case anyone is interested:

    Nah, they’re a bunch of names on the down side and guys who have failed to live up to their hype. They will score around 730 runs. More than last year and in line with many years prior, but not an 800 run offense barring all of: Markakis, Jones, Wieters meeting their lofty prospect projections.

    Lee has hand problems and will have no power. Vlad hit .260 in the second half last year and has bad knees. Reynolds hits under .200 with 2 strikes. Scott had his best year ever last year and isnt the kind of guy who will repeat it. Brian Roberts is a pest, but an injury prone one.

    good opportunity for mitre to show his form. baltimore is an improved team, from a fundamentals point of view. if he wants to be the long man here’s his chance

    Good split squad win earlier today. Nice seeing Prior do well thus far. Yankee arms look good overall. Only person I’m a bit concerned about – though it’s early – is Logan. Perfect example of how you can never tell year to year on bullpen arms. Hopefully, he’ll get on track as ST continues. Otherwise, lots of teams could use a lefty…

    I think it’s a big plus to have 2 LHRP in the pen that can get the job done

    Gotta love guys who get fired up about a john lackey appearance. I didn’t even know he was still in baseball. My last image of him was when he tried to talk scoscia into letting him get out of his own jam in the alcs in anaheim. He failed. Is he still in baseball? I’m assuming #4/5 starter for the royals or on a minor league deal somewhere, no?
