Corey Patterson ahead of Matos at the moment

In today's "Washingtons Post Orioles Notebook" I found an interesting tidbit.

-Corey Patterson would be the starting CFer if the season started now. Great news for all Matos haters:-).

Patterson is penciled in as the team's starting center fielder, though a strong spring by Luis Matos or Nick Markakis could change those plans.

If Patterson is anything close to what he was in '04 I want him starting.

-Some Baltimore Sun notes...

The Orioles have apparently reached a stalemate in their attempt to sign outfielder Richard Hidalgo.
The Orioles have offered the free agent, who hit .221 last season with 16 homers, 43 RBIs in 308 at-bats for the Texas Rangers, a minor league contract with incentives, but Hidalgo is holding out for a major league deal. At this point, it appears unlikely that the Orioles, who are intrigued by Hidalgo as someone who could improve their outfield defense and possibly add pop to the lineup, will make Hidalgo a major league offer.


Hidalgo will probably sign(here or elsewhere) today so he can report to ST on time. Hopefully he is in orange and black by the end of the day!

-Also here's a great read on Chris Ray.

More players showing up...

Outfielder Corey Patterson became the latest position player to arrive at camp, as he met a couple of his new teammates yesterday afternoon. Outfield prospects Jeff Fiorentino and Nick Markakis were also among the early arrivals who stopped by the stadium.

More outfielders. Good to see Nick and Fio showing up early.

Looks like Todd might be OK...

Reliever Todd Williams left yesterday's workout early, complaining of soreness in his right shoulder. He said it was just a precautionary move, and he said he wasn't concerned it is anything serious.

Hopefully we can get Rakers healthy now, but I'm starting to think his injury is serious.
