Spring Training has come to an end, and the O’s are heading north. They will stop in Norfolk for a game against the Tides, but otherwise Opening Day is basically upon us. You have three days to dig all the orange out of your closet/attic and make sure it’s washed, ironed, and ready to rock on Thursday. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The Sun’s Jon Meoli lays out the lessons he picked up covering the team in Sarasota. Is it a problem that the roster isn’t as flexible as the O’s prefer? How has the heart of the order changed? How about the perception of the team overall?

Rough weekend for old pal Albert Belle…

Let’s end on a high note, however…

3 days!
