Roberts, Hendrickson make up

Jeff Zrebiec relayed a funny scene in the Orioles clubhouse the other day. New pitcher Mark Hendrickson walked across the clubhouse and chided Brian Roberts about the friction that developed between them last year when Roberts stole third base on Hendrickson in an exhibition game.

Roberts defended himself by reminding Hendrickson that Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez stole third base earlier in the game.

The exchange was light-hearted and -- with the encouragement of noted peacemaker Aubrey Huff -- Roberts got up from his seat and gave Hendrickson a big hug.

Upon further review of my previous blog item, I think Brian should be grateful Hendrickson is not a huge box turtle.
