Orioles beat writer Roch Kubatko, who pens the fine “Roch Around the Clock” blog at Baltimoresun.com, won’t be making the trip to Fort Myers for today’s Red Sox-Orioles spring tilt, but odds are he probably wouldn’t have been treated as nicely as he was yesterday in Fort Lauderdale, where the Orioles took on the Twins.
Thanks to the reader who sent a beer up to the press box yesterday. Very thoughtful. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to drink on duty, but the gesture was appreciated, along with the note.
Include a shot of Southern Comfort next time and I might not be able to resist. And then I’ll be referring to Luke Scott as Scott Luke and badgering Guillermo Quiroz to put more sweet peppers on my sub.
Members of the Red Sox media contingent, meanwhile, are being attacked by pelicans and having their computers smashed to bits by errant foul balls. Then again, Kubatko has to watch the Orioles 162 times this season. We’d call it a wash, except that…well, have you seen the Orioles?
But hey, free beer.
