In case you missed this little dig yesterday from rototimes.com:

Apr. 7 Scott Spiezio (3B) ATL was sentenced to three months probation after pleading guilty to charges on Monday, ESPN.com reports. He faced charges of assault, battery, driving under the influence, and assault with a deadly weapon stemming from a car crash on December 30. Spiezio will also pay a $390 fine, participate in AA and an alcohol program, perform 80 hours of community service, pay an undisclosed amount to a fund, and now play for the Orioles. Okay, so we made that last part up.

Respect will come slowly.

Bill Buckner threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park last night. He should have rolled it between his legs. Now that would have been memorable.

Or what if John McNamara had taken him out? Finally.

I always thought Buckner took way too much of the blame for the Game 6 loss in the '86 Series. Save a little for Calvin Schiraldi.

Eric Gagne blew another save last night for the Brewers. Shocking, I know. Corey Patterson took him deep with two outs in the ninth.

Johnny Cueto turned in another impressive start for the Reds. He's struck out 18 and hasn't walked a batter in 13 1/3 innings.

From what I've heard, the Orioles and Reds never were close to completing a trade for Erik Bedard. The sides talked once at the winter meetings, but Jay Bruce was off the table, and that ended it.

Hayden Penn started for Triple-A Norfolk last night and allowed four runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked one, struck out three, and threw 58 of his 90 pitches for strikes.

Bob McCrory picked up his second save in the Tides' 6-5 win over Rochester. Garrett Olson starts tonight.

Chorye Spoone starts for Double-A Bowie tonight.

Matt Wieters went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs for Single-A Frederick. He's batting .455.

Tony Butler, part of the Bedard trade, was perfect in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings for Single-A Delmarva. All the damage against him – three runs and three hits – came in the third.
