Payton hurt

In today’s against the Twins, Jay Payton strained a hammie running to third base. Good news that it’s the lowest level of strain. Bad news? It may help Freddie Bynum’s chances of making the 25 man.

The Sun says that he could miss one to three weeks, meaning that he’s likely missing opening day. I’m sure there’s way I could blame this on Sidney Ponson.

Spencer Fordin has plenty of notes today.

– Sean Tracey is happy to an O.

-Rob Bell wasn’t stunned at getting sent to minors, despite a stellar spring.

– The opening rotation looks to be

against the Twins: Bedard, Cabrera, and Wright

against the Yankees: Loewen, Trachsel, and back to Bedard.

Trachsel against the Yankees is scary. Spring training numbers or not, that’s going to be a game that will scare me to watch. But maybe he gets together when the season starts.

-Adam Donachie was sent back to the Royals, after clearing waivers and the O’s not able to work out a deal with KC. I’m not crying over this one.

The O’s are not very happy with their opening schedule, says Peter Schmuck.

The Sun has a cool thing going where fans at spring training write pieces.
