Orioles Spring Training II

I’m back for more observations and stuff on the Orioles.

B-Rob’s New Contract

I can happpily say that the B-Rob is not leaving the Orioles any time soon. He signed a new 4 year deal with 10 mil per year. Brian Roberts is my favorite active player. He is the kind of guy you would build a team around. he hustles, fields well and is a base stealer. He also has vetarn expirence. I was concerned that he wasn’t going to be an Oriole when my dad and I were going to go Wrigley. Over the summer as a present my dad and I went Wrigley to see the Orioles and da Cubbies. If we were to be at Wrigley and B-rob in a cub uni that would be interesting indeed.

I have a couple reasons why he is my favorite player. I went to Spring Training one year in the 2000’s (McGwire was there.) and Brian signed my ball. This was before he was known well. Then when he was actually playing for the Orioles I liked the number 1 (BTW my lucky number is 11) on his jersey. And he always hustles and that other stuff I mentioned in the previous paragraph.

The haven’t been paying a lot of atttention in spring training stuff. I was on the Orioles homepage and thye have a list of articles flashing and one was something like Ryan Freel Provides Veteran Bench Expirence and I thought to myself  “The Orioles Have Ryan Freel?” I then checked the depth chart and there were some guys who I had an “Oh Yeah ” reaction for. In fact Earl Weaver himself dissed Spring Training “No one’s gonna give a da** in July if you lost a game in March.”

    Glad to hear Roberts is staying. I’m hoping something similar happens to Jed Lowrie. I got his autograph last year at Spring Training when he wasn’t anything big, and now… he’s starting to get a name for himself. I’m glad I came to this blog, you’ll definitely be seeing more of me.

    Spring training is about getting in shape, getting to know each other and working together, not wins and losses. I think Spring traing does well to see how some of the players in the minors do in MLB games. Granted, its much more laid back. However, its still nice to see.
