Some random tidbits regarding the O's and the World Baseball Classic:

Davy Johnson has played his cards right so far in the World Baseball Classic (including putting in a big old handfull of Redman in while the ESPN cameraman was on him during Rick Sutcliffe's criticism for taking out Jimmy Rollins and inserting Derek Jeter - what a marketer!).

Bill Ripken looks funny with his helmet on as the first base coach. You know he's complaining about that helmet every chance he gets.

Melvin Mora's off to a hot start and Izturis and Costanzo each have a hit a piece:
Player Team Pos G AB R H D T HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG AVG OPS
Melvin Mora Venezuela 3B 2 9 1 4 0 0 1 5 7 1 0 0 0 .500 .778 .444 1.278
Cesar Izturis Venezuela SS 1 3 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 .250 .000 .000 .250
Mike Costanzo Italy 3B 1 4 0 1 1 0 0 0 2 0 1 0 0 .250 .500 .250 .750

Now we just need Jeremy Guthrie to pitch well when he gets his shot.

Bill Ripken looks ridiculous in that helmet seriously.
