Watching some of the Yankees-Red Sox game last night reminded me of a couple of leftover quotes that I had gotten from Boston All-Star second baseman Dustin Pedroia this spring about the Orioles' young arms.

Pedroia was pretty complimentary in general about the direction the Orioles are going, specifically on the mound. "I've never gotten a chance to face Matusz, but everyone is talking about him. But we have faced David Hernandez, Berken, Bergesen, Tillman. They all have great stuff," he said. "I think it's a great thing what they're doing. They're letting them pitch. All of them, you can tell, have the makeup and the presence that they want to get better and they're willing to work. It's good to see. Well, it's not good for us to see, but they're doing a good job.

"It's going to be exciting for them. They have a lot of good young pitching, and they obviously can swing the bats. They've proven that. In the next couple of years, they're going to be pretty darn good."
