Quick Hits: O's News and 'Round the Blogosphere

Good morning everyone out there in baseball land…

Orioles Stuffage:

The Baltimore Sun has a Q&A with the sometimes reclusive, yet awesome savior-in-the-wings lefty pitcher Erik Bedard.

Roch Kubatko has a piece on Scott Williamson and how he feels going into camp coming back from surgery. Jeff Zrebiec has a piece on Jay Gibbons and updates on Kris Benson’s rehab.

Ray Frager is excited about Gary Throne, and so am I. He’s a great play by play guy, and it’s was a great coup by MASN to get him. He also gives his take on the startup network and other news tidbits.

The Washington Post’s Jorge Arangure, Jr. has a great piece on J.R. House and more on Kris Benson’s rehab, Jay Gibbons and the bullpen.

The Baltimore Examiner has a piece on Russ Ortiz, and Cal Ripken visiting the Maryland State House.

The AP has an article about the first base situation and the logjam for the Orioles.

The website has news on reliever Kurt Birkins, on speedy runners like Roberts and Patterson possibly having more freedom to steal bases, Garrett Olson and yes, on Kris Benson (for a guy who’s seen as average, I call him ‘Mr. Average’, he sure gets a lot of press).

Around the Blogosphere:

Orioles Magic looks at the Orioles and compares them to the competition in the AL East. Good job, Mike!

The Roar from 34 blog has a great round up of O’s news and events, especially a take from Mets blogs about spring training, the Kris Benson injury and the Steve Trachsel signing.

Oriole Central’s Ben has his thoughts about the Kris Benson injury and some other tidbits from the web.

Check out the new O’s blog, Dempsey’s Army. Check it out and send them some love, as we could always use another Orange & Black supporter out there.

The Baltimore Flock has yet another opinion on the Kris Benson injury & the Trachsel signing. As well, they are selling T-Shirts supporting their site. They are good guys and some real hardcore O’s fans, so show them a lot of love and your support…

* I am liking the scruffy look of the team, it gives the O's a lot of character and maybe will lead the team to a few more wins...

First off I can't take credit for the latest article on Oriole Magic. That's a guest submission by one of my favorite readers, Gamingboy.

Second, I'll echo what you said about the Flock. That's a hell of a great group of fans, of which I am a proud member. Everyone should have a Flock T shirt!
