MASN will trot out Eddie Murray, Ben McDonald, Mike Boddicker and Brady Anderson on tonight's broadcast to preview their new roles with the network during the regular season. Murray, McDonald and Boddicker toured the clubhouse shaking hands with the current players this afternoon (Anderson is resting up after a red-eye flight) and are on the field watching pregame workouts right now.

That led to the most ironic moment of the spring. I was watching from the press box a few minutes ago when MASN producer Lya Vallat handed out media credentials and Murray hung the lanyard around his neck. I wonder if he ever imagined doing that during an Orioles playing career that was marked by chronic tension with the sportswriters who covered him.
