Well, the O's won their spring opener today but lost Jerry Hairston, Jr. for possibly 4-6 weeks. Brian Roberts, who wins the 2B job by default now, didn't play due to back stiffness but he expects to play tomorrow. Second base prospect Mike Fontenot went 1-for-2 with a HR and 2 RBI's. He's a long shot to make the team this spring but hopefully he'll be able to take over at second by the start of next season.
