Orioles Spring Training

The Orioles stand at 3-2-1 in the Grapefruit League Standings. Spring Training games are in full swing as the teams begin to work towards Opening Day at the end of the Month. They actually posted a tie yesterday 5-5. Yes, there are ties in Spring Training.

I was originally going be writing this weekend from Florida and after attending Spring Training games, but life happens and I am heading to Ithaca later today rather than enjoying the 81 degree forecast for Sarasota. No, I won't be playing golf in the expected 12 inches of snow that Ithaca is preparing to receive this weekend.

Chance Sisco
Chris Davis
Turning to the Orioles, they have fielded a team and are playing baseball, which is what we expected.  They are managing to win some games, but it is Spring Training. 

The highlight of Spring Training so far is Chance Sisco. He has 4 runs, 3 homers, and the 8 RBIs to start the Spring Training. He is angling to be the starting catcher and apparently, right now, has the inside track. In the it was good to see it department, Chris Davis actually has a hit--a 2 run homer, however his batting average remains a dismal .143. It is early yet, however, and there is time for the batting average to sink lower.

Well--that's it for today. More next week as we get deeper into March and begin approaching the start of MLB's Regular Season. The big question for the Orioles this year is the loss over under. I currently have it pegged at 105, meaning they will finish 57-105, an improvement from last year. Vegas has it pegged at 103 losses for a 59-103 finish.
