Offense wakes up...

Well, just barely.  They still leave runners stranded with less than two outs.  That is sad to see and I wonder if this is going to be a common theme throughout the year.

Nick Markakis rip a nice shot for a triple and it scored both Brian Roberts and Melvin Mora.  Brian Roberts is showing all scouts why he maybe one of the most under rated leadoff men in the game.  He drew a tough walk and stole two bases off Dodgers backup catcher Lucus May.  It was more related to the great jump off IMO a slow movement to the plate by Eric Stults.  I would not give too much credit to the Orioles run as this is still a pup pitcher that most likely will be in AAA this season.

Alot of the games are late run producing games with slow starts.  The Orioles could be simply slow starters or they are roughing up the relief pitching.  Lets see the last two weeks of this season when the rosters are reduced.  It will give a better idea of things to come in 2008.
