The beginning of the baseball season is a time for optimism for all teams. Even the Orioles this year. After all, all teams start off 0 – 0.
Hope springs eternal!
And then you read that Angelos is getting ready to sell the team at the end of the season and that the Orioles have just traded Brain Roberts for a serious package of prospects – including Felix Pie – from the Cubs.
Still with something like 160 games left for the season here are some nice previews.
The Wall Street Journal’s Daily Fix runs through MLB with previews built on the beat witers for each team.
Check out the Power Rankings at Fox Sports.
And of course, check out the predictions at Baseball Musings.
UPDATE: Last week, former major leaguer, Doug Glanville inaugurated a column in the NYT, The Boys of Spring. I very much like the first effort:
Everyone who makes it to big league camp was a baseball legend at some point in his life. It was big fish from big and small ponds thrust into the biggest pond of their lives, most of us just trying to find some plankton of an opportunity in the last slot of a 25-man team.
I had sparkling college All-America and first-round draft pick credentials, but I found out pretty quickly that I didnâ€™t have any idea how to approach a major league curve ball.
