I watched the Terps-Virginia Tech game with Jeff Zrebiec last night at Sports Page Bar & Grille on Main St. It's a good spot. Quality food, lots of TVs and they pretty much get every channel.
The Orioles had an EAP meeting this morning, so reporters were booted from the clubhouse 15 minutes earlier than usual. Players will take the field at 9:15 a.m. for the pre-workout stretch.
Brian Roberts said he might take a few swings in batting practice, so he's making progress while dealing with a small herniated disk in his back.
"I haven't had any setbacks with what we've done," he said. "I may try to move forward and see how it goes."
The news also is good with Brad Bergesen, whose shoulder remains attached to his body after yesterday's bullpen session.
"It feels normal. Nothing out of the ordinary," he said.
Bergesen is scheduled for bullpen sessions tomorrow and Wednesday, and could throw live batting practice on Friday.
