They were meaningless exhibitions, but there was a lot to like about the Orioles' first two Grapefruit League wins. The Orioles jacked six home runs out of the park, scored 18 runs in two games and got quality outings from Brad Bergesen and Jeremy Guthrie.
Once again, though, these games don't count in the standings, so it's hard for me to get too worked up about the Orioles' wins.
What about you? Has the Orioles' power surge made you think the Orioles will win a few extra games this year? Are you thinking playoffs now? Cautiously optimistic? Still bracing for disaster?
