Orioles: Guthrie and the WBC

Congratulations to Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who has been chosen for the Team USA roster for the World Baseball Classic. And, of course, congratulations to Jeff Zrebiec for breaking that news a few minutes ago.

Jeremy is a great story ... going from waiver claim (or, as we like to call it, the steal of the decade) to Orioles No. 1 starter in the course of just a couple of seasons. Now, he gets to represent his country in the WBC and he's both thrilled and humbled by the opportunity.

"It's neat to have the opportunity," Guthrie told Jeff this morning. "I've never put a jersey on that says USA. So that's a great honor. It's obviously very humbling."
