It's great to see that the exhibition season is finally under way. The Orioles played an intrasquad game on Monday, but the real action is finally getting under way.
The Orioles kick off Grapefruit League action in Sarasota on Wednesday afternoon against the Rays, and it's needless to say, everyone is glad to truly be playing live baseball.
It also looks like Brian Roberts is on the mend, and is ramping up his batting practice sessions; therefore, from the looks of things, he should be fine in the weeks and days ahead. On the pitching front, Brad Bergesen is also looking impressive in his bullpen sessions.
Meanwhile, several pitchers (the youngsters and incumbents alike) are looking to perform their best to make the Opening Day roster, and everyone also wants to take an extended look at Josh Bell, plus Miguel Tejada at third.
