BALTIMORE - At long last, we have baseball in Baltimore.
The Orioles are home after nearly two months in Florida and getting ready to host Minnesota. The temperature might not be the same, but it's a sunny and cloudless day here at Camden Yards.
Baltimore is 2-1 after taking two of three in Tampa Bay while Minnesota is also 2-1 after winning its series with Detroit.
Should be a sellout crowd today, and fans are already pouring in to get their first look at the 2013 Orioles.
They won't see a familiar face, however.
Second baseman Brian Roberts is reportedly headed to the disabled list after injuring his right hamstring in Thursday's game against the Rays. Roberts stole second base in the ninth inning and slid into the bag head-first, but had to be carried off the field.
"We'll get through it," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Friday's game. "I think everybody feels for him because we know how hard he worked to get to this point."
