Pregame notes from Camden Yards

April 06, 2008 |

Here are some pregame notes here from Camden Yards:
  • It is cold here at Camden Yards
  • If you think that Andy McPhail is not a hands on GM, he was out talking to the head groundskeeper Nicole Sherry about the weather before the game
  • Andy stopped to sign some autographs on his way back into the tunnel
  • Guillermo Quiroz will catch today’s game with Ramon likely back behind the plate tomorrow. I wonder if Quiroz has solid day today, if Trembley would use him again tomorrow for the early game, plus with the O’s having a early (2:05) game in Texas on Tuesday.
  • It was April 9th 2007 last year before the Orioles had three wins under their belt, they were 1-3 on this date last year
  • I am pretty sure they did not show it on television, but there was a fan who ran on the field on Friday night who jumped into the ballpark out of the left field section, ran all the way to the out of town scoreboard area and straight to a cop in center field. Stupid is as stupid does
