Britt’s notes today

Loved some of her notes today, had to post them here.

My notes will be in parentheses after each note.

*Also, in case you missed it, I talked to Robert Andino about clearing waivers this afternoon.  President
of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said Andino will get the bulk of
playing time at shortstop in Triple-A Norfolk.   (best of luck to him
there, I hope another team wants him though because he has a solid
future and I am more for him as a person which is why I would be okay
if he is traded since I guess it isn’t a fit in Baltimore)
*Mike Gonzalez was
the first guy in Dave Trembley’s office this morning and told the
Orioles manager he wants the ball tonight. We’ll see what happens.
Close friend Rafael Soriano (who got the win for the Rays) texted
Gonzalez words of encouragement following an ugly blown save.  (agreed.
give it to him. let him prove us wrong. if he does it again, then
question it.)
*Brad Bergesen and David Hernandez
Friday and Saturday’s starters in Baltimore, boarded a 6 p.m. flight
earlier tonight to go back to Birdland. They’ll get a chance to settle
in and prep for their starts. Hernandez threw a bullpen yesterday and
told me he’s pretty excited.  (cant wait for the weekend when i can see
em in person)

*New Oriole Julio Lugo was coloring in the
white parts of his cleats with an orange permanent marker pregame. He’s
still waiting to get his Orioles spikes, but this way he fits in. 
(sounds awesome, love that he is gettin into it.)
