Well the annual migration has taken place and the O's are in Fla. What have we seen so far? Well, Brian Roberts is still wondering which uniform he will be wearing this season, after an initial explosion Nick Markakis has settled into his routine and is showing star qualities, D-Cab is being D-Cab...good one day and why is he here the next, Melvin Mora has had some shining moments, and the Coaching staff is still getting familiar with all the new faces Andy has provided them! By all accounts, Dave Trembley is running a well organized and thought out Camp with many players responding favorably. After a disappointing 2007 season, Ramon Hernandez reported at a svelte 225 and is displaying the skills that brought him to B'more in the first place...so how does this translate to the O's fans? The prospects are quite good, as in most of the players acquired in the off-season are prospects, so while uncertain the future nonetheless is quite bright. Undoubtedly we will witness some stumbles(growing pains), but I predict many exciting moments for the fan to savor!
