Spring Training Update

The Orioles are 2-6 and playing sloppily, but there are more important things to worry about in Spring Training.

Brad Bergesen (right) finally made his return, allowing 1 run in an inning and a third. He didn't show his normal control, throwing only 17 of 35 pitches for strikes, but the key is that he seems healthy.

Brian Roberts (left), who suffered from a herniated disk and a virus or medical reaction that kept him out longer than expected, is optimistic about his chances of being ready by Opening Day. Andy MacPhail had expressed some concern.

Most important thing to note: Matt Wieters on the cover of Sports Illustrated!

It may be the only time an Oriole makes an SI cover this year...

At least Berguson is back and healthy - I'm not too worried about him getting roughed up. I just wanted to see some arm movement and avoidance of dangerous TV advertisements.

I am a little worried about BRob getting hurt. He's always been a decent base-stealer, and I'd hate to see him lose that ability by becoming injury-prone. Plus, it can't help his trade valuable if he has an injury history. Hopefully a swift recovery is in store.
