News Item: Manny Ramirez actually signs a contract with the Dodgers 2 years 45 mil.
My Take: Wasn’t he offered this 4 or 5 times before, well at least he actually signed at all, however I have no idea why but I thought the Giants were going to sign him. I still think he could DH for the Orioles! 😉
News Item: The Orioles defeat the DR 6-1 with David Ortiz, Hanley Ranirez and Johnny Cueto actually playing.
My Take: This is very good for the Orioles, I have no ida how hard the Dr was playing but this certainley is promising, considering that they have good spring training record. And Koji Uehara is doing really well. Was the Rays’ record in spring training last season if it was good then you know where I’m going with this.

News item: The Orioles are doing an O’s Ravens Draft Day Rally Cap Giveaway.
My Take: Eight words: Baltimore loves the Ravens more then the O’s, I saw this point made on http://www.bmorebirdsnest.com/ the blog that found “were gonna boo texeiria” Somebody maybe Joe Flacco was throwing out the first pitch and they asked ” When’s the last time you saw an O in an Ravens jersey.”
