The Orioles lineup should be the strength of this team will Adam Jones Matt leaders and company produce enough at the plate thought that the -- -- picture. That's probably good question of the spring right now I mean yeah they do have some pretty players. Are they he had Wilson Betemit who can hit on Endy Chavez will be the fourth outfielder and and play a little bit pretty much everybody else coming back. And had a fairly deep -- the year last year problem they will score but lay out how I'm not efficiently and scored enough to be able to also the pitching. Tommy Hunter should be the Orioles number one starter is that indication of how bleak things looked from the bound this year. Why. Not the number one thing is is really up in the air lease opening day starters up in the air right now I mean there is under there Rob Jeter yet as well back from elbow surgery and -- -- -- -- -- a lot these well -- and down. He'll be there -- isn't sometime someplace and make the guys impressed me the most this spring is Lee mentioned the I ladies. Let candidate out -- in Japan the last four seasons alms. -- he's got pretty good stuff and and he's he looked pretty good the last couple outings. In the league competition but. I think they're definitely get and then mean this year he -- got me out of it mainly was definitely a consistent presence. In this rotation incentive to Colorado in -- how you've -- -- also of the guys in certain situations but.

Finally Dan do you have any hope is this the year Baltimore finally has that elusive winning season. I don't perceive it to be honest I'm just because we talked about that. That rotation is improving on there's a lot of question marks regarding a lot of different positions just overall. On the health -- you know a big one obviously second base out -- Portuguese right fielders is coming back nabbed in surgery in January is first home run. Born on Friday and in the spring so that you guys that that I think will. Hopefully will be back it is norm pretty quickly there are a lot of questions regarding. -- and then there's also said that the experience factors so. I don't see it not in this division.
