Utility man Scott Moore was waived off the 40-man roster when the Orioles finalized the deal for Ty Wigginton, but he says that doesn't have any effect on how he goes about his business this spring.
"I think whether I come in here on the roster or not, I've got to come in here and play good and help the team win. If I do that, things will work out," Moore said.
It will be an uphill climb after the Orioles spent the winter adding players to compete with him. The arrival of Wigginton and Ryan Freel and the return of Chris Gomez make it a very tough numbers game to crack.
"I didn't follow the transactions (every day), but you hear about them,'' Moore said. "There are two ways of looking at that. You check out the team, because you care about the team, but I'm not trying to see the future. Just trying to take care of business. I just have to make sure I'm ready every day to help the team win."
