Spring training is over, final Opening Day 25-man rosters have been made and teams are at major league ballparks.

Going into the season, there is much worry and pessimism surrounding this Baltimore Orioles club, and those feelings are most certainly justifiable. The team seems to be in rebuilding mode yet again, and unless there's a dramatic turnaround from the young pitchers, it will be another long year in Birdland.
As everyone knows, spring training statistics hold almost no weight. A great spring doesn't guarantee a great regular season, just as a poor spring won't prove to turn into a poor regular season.
I'm going to tell you why some of the guys who had a bit of a rough spring shouldn't worry you.
At least, not yet anyway.
