WTMD eyes Canton waterfront BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Lest Cantonites have misgivings over WTMD’s decision to move their popular First Thursdays concert series to Canton Waterfront Park, Steve Yasko, general manager of the Towson University-owned station, had some reassuring words: “This is not a ‘kegs and eggs’ radio station,” he said. “This is a ‘chardonnay and quail eggs’ kind of station.” Yasko explained WTMD’s plans at last Tuesday’s Canton Community Association meeting. First Thursdays, which has been held in Mt. Vernon for the past 10 years, would be held on the waterfront, just south of Boston St. between S. Clinton St. and S. East Ave. The concerts—held on the first Thursdays of the month from May through September—begin at about 7 p.m. and run until about 10 p.m. Yasko made sure to cover those hot-button issues especially relevant to Canton. “I have never gotten a call about public urination after the event,” he said, adding that in 10 years, there have been no fights or arrests either.

MTA chooses ‘Option 3’ for Red Line construction BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

At last week’s Canton Community Association meeting, Mary Colleen Buettner, the Southeast’s new community liaison for the Baltimore Red Line, gave an update on the proposed 14.1-mile rail line. In a budget released last month, President Barack Obama requested $100 million for the Red Line in fiscal year 2015, as well as $100 million for Maryland’s Purple Line. Overall, both projects were recommended to receive $900 million each in total through the federal New Starts program.

“These were two of seven transportation projects nationwide (in the president’s budget),” Buettner said. When and if a federal budget is passed, it will need the approval of the House of Representatives and Senate as well as the president. Buettner also reported that the Maryland Transit Authority has chosen “Option 3” for the construction of the rail’s Boston St. portal— the point at which the train emerges from underground, near Boston St.’s intersection with Montford Ave.

Business association formed to promote Broadway corridor BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

A new business association has been formed to help promote the Broadway Corridor, says Daniel Kim, owner of the G.C. Wireless store at 522 S. Broadway. Kim will be the Broadway Area Business Association’s first president. The group’s 15 members and City Councilman James Kraft (D-1) held their first meeting on March 18, Kim says. “Our first goals are to elect board leadership, to put bylaws in place, and to plan another Broadway cleanup,” said Kim. The cleanup will be held April 26, 9 a.m.12 p.m. and will include cleaning the tree pits, replacing broken bricks, and re-mulching the area. “I’m hoping that an arborist from the city will come out and prune the trees as well,” Kim added. He says that all business owners in the Broadway area are welcome to join. The organization’s membership area includes Broadway from Fleet St. to Lombard St., and the Broadway side streets between Bond and Ann streets. The Broadway Area Business Association plans to meet the fourth Thursday of each month.

State’s Attorney questioned on marijuana legalization BY ERIK ZYGMONT

At a recent appearance at a Canton Community Association meeting, State’s Attorney Gregg Bernstein was asked a direct question: “What is your position on the legalization of marijuana, and how would it change your job?” asked a resident. “Alright,” responded Bernstein with a smile and a wave, heading for the door. “It was nice seeing you all!” After residents laughed at his joke, he got to work answering the question, first noting that it was a “complicated” one. “Do you legalize it or simply decriminalize it?” Bernstein said. “If you legalize it, what’s the system you’re going to put in place— who’s going to grow it?” He said that Colorado and Washington, two states that recently legalized marijuana, are “great incubators.” “Let’s see how this works,” he said. Bernstein noted that since legalization, there has been an uptick in children coming to school under the influence of marijuana. He said that for the police in Baltimore, the illegality of marijuana is a “tool.” “Possession of marijuana is used for probable cause for stops, and leads to seizures of guns and warrant arrests,” he said. On the overall question of legalizing or decriminalizing the drug, Bernstein said, “We certainly seem to be headed in that direction. I’m not necessarily adverse to that, but I do think we need to be deliberate.”

A recent fundraiser at Canton Club, a fitness center located on Lighthouse Point off Boston St., netted over $9,000 for the friends of Patterson Park. The proceeds from the event, “24Hour Pedal for Patterson Park,” will support youth programming in Patterson Park, says Jennifer Arndt Robinson, executive director of the Friends.

Mustang Inn gets two-day suspension for disturbing the peace BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

the [jukebox] volume is within legal limits.” Ginger Cornejo, the licensee, said the jukebox has been set by the jukebox company at a volume of 51 since December of 2013 and was reduced to 45 in February of 2014. Cornejo also said she’d be willing to contribute funds toward a roll-down gate for the tax office and also post a door person at the Mustang Inn. Smith and Jones originally gave the tavern a five-day suspension, but suspended three days of the punishment when the licensee’s attorney, Melvin Kodenski, said he didn’t think a five-day suspension was warranted. “There’s no police reports here. No arrests were made. A suspension based on the evidence here certainly is not warranted,” Kodenski said. Smith replied: “The board upholds its decision but suspends three days.” Mustang must complete the two-day suspension before the end of the license year, which ends April 30.

Last week, the Board of Liquor License Commissioners handed the Mustang Inn, 3203 Eastern Ave., a two-day suspension of its liquor license for four violations of disturbing the peace. The board made the decision on March 27, on testimony that began at a March 13 hearing. On March 13, the Community Law Center—representing the Canton Community Association—submitted a petition signed by 119 neighbors and property owners requesting that the Mustang Inn have its license suspended. “Numerous complaints of loud noise, loitering, overserving and assault have originated from this bar,” the petition asserted. “We want a wake-up call for this bar that has shown no respect for the community,” said Becky Witt, a Community Law Center attorney. Mark and Dawn Mellett a tax preparation office next door to the bar and live above, told the board that they have submitted years’ worth of complaints about noise, public urination, vomiting at the bar. Mark Mellett, who has four cameras in front of his building, submitted DVDs, which he said documented Mustang patrons’ fights, drunkenness, and public urination in front of the bar. Stephan Fogleman, chair of the Board of Liquor License Commissioners, had recused himself from the hearing because he lives in the bar’s neighborhood. He told the board he was asked to sign the petition, and was aware of the Melletts’ concerns about the bar. During the decision phase of the hearing, Commissioner Elizabeth Smith said the board found “at least four instances of disturbing the peace but was not able to open all the DVDs [that Mellet submitted].” Regarding the noise, she said, The Mustang Inn must refrain from selling alcohol for “We do believe while it is not to two days between now and the end of the month. the pleasure of the complainants. | Photo by Danielle Sweeney

WTMD: Canton concert location would triple station’s costs CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Are you over 60 and feeling depressed or having memory problems?

It looks like the Canton Waterfront Park might be the new home for WTMD’s First Thursdays. | Photo by Erik Zygmont

“This is a family-friendly, community building event, and I think it really works well for us,” Yasko said. A 2010 survey asserts that 34 percent of First Thursdays attendees are between 24 and 34; 19 percent are between 35 and 44; and 20 percent are between 45 and 54. At the event’s Mt. Vernon location, attendance ranged between 2,000 and 5,000 per show, according to a handout distributed by Yasko. Moving on to the subject of parking, Yasko said that Canton Office Properties Trust would be offering 500 spaces for a small fee. Wells Obrecht would offer 500 spaces behind the Brewers Hill shopping center for no fee. Yasko added that he was in negotiations with Canton Crossing for a no-tow policy in a certain area. There is also street parking, but Yasko said that motorists would be strongly encouraged to park south of Boston St. WTMD’s handout promised an “aggressive communications effort” to keep drivers south of Boston St., using “maps, incentives and other promotions.” The radio station is also hoping attendees will use the Baltimore Water Taxi, which currently runs until 11 p.m. on show nights. Biking and walking will be encouraged as well, Yasko said, noting that about half of Mt. Vernon attendees had walked. WTMD had looked into having Charm City Circulator service extended to serve First Thursdays, but “it’s just too expensive,” Yasko said. “We’re already tripling our costs from Mt. Vernon to come down here.” Maryland Transit Authority Bus 11 does service Canton Waterfront Park, and the radio station will promote it, he said. First Thursdays features three concerts on a given night, ranging from national acts to local bands.

The Brewer’s Art is the official beer vendor. Concert goers may bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks, Yasko said. “We owe it to Brewer’s Art to discourage that,” he said. According to Yasko, First Thursdays will likely have a positive effect on Canton’s businesses. According to WTMD’s survey, 51 percent of concert-goers went out to dinner before or after the show; 20 percent went out for drinks; and 18 percent shopped in Mt. Vernon stores. Security for the event, Yasko said, would be Baltimore City police officers, likely six officers and a sergeant. “That’s kind of where the cost tripled, but that’s okay,” Yasko said. “Civil servants should have every opportunity.” A resident asked how long First Thursdays would stay in Canton. Yasko said that the renovations of West Mt. Vernon Park could take two or three years. “We’re hoping by then that you love us and don’t want us to leave,” he told the Canton audience. First Thursdays is produced in partnership with the Department of Recreation and Parks, and, should the move win approval, the Canton Community Association. According to Yasko, the proposed move has the support of City Councilman Jim Kraft, Liquor Board Chair Stephan Fogleman (who lives in the area), and the Canton Community Association. CCA President Sean Flanagan said that when Yasko first approached him and members of the CCA Board with the idea, “there was some healthy skepticism on my part.” However, Flanagan said, he has been impressed by Yasko’s “responsiveness and honesty.” The proposed move is in the initial stages of the application and review proscess.

Tavern proposed to replace fire-destroyed Fell’s Point Liquor and Bar BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Fell’s Point doesn’t need a tavern that opens at 7 a.m., even if it’s an upscale one, said members of the Fells Point Task Force, which heard a presentation for the proposed tavern at their meeting last week. Raj Bommakanti, whose tavern burned down on the 1700 block of Fleet St. a year and a half ago, presented a proposal for a new business at 1615 Eastern Ave., a property that he said he has a contract on. According to preliminary business and floor plans he handed out, Bommakanti wants to open an upscale tavern with packaged goods and an exclusive wine station on the building’s 3,500-square-foot first floor. The tavern’s bar area would have room for about 25 stools, and its wine lounge area would have 10-15 seats and include a wine wall and wine display area. The building’s second and third floors would be developed later, tentatively into a fast-casual eatery and office and apartment spaces, he said. Bommakanti had already contacted the Liquor Board for a hearing for the license

transfer and said he would like to be open in about 90 days, but realizes that might not be realistic. The property is located within a Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation district, and his handouts noted that minor privilege, zoning and CHAP approval were all pending. “I’ve just started talking to architects,” Bommakanti said. “But I definitely want to open before preseason football, which would be late summer.” He acknowledged that the area where he wants to open a tavern already has 50-60 liquor licenses, and told the task force that he is a member of a community organization and is aware of the challenges the Broadway corridor faces. “I come here as a displaced business man,” he said. According to documents Bommakanti and his attorney Abraham Hurdle passed out at the meeting, the proposed tavern will have no live music, no live performances or shows, and no karaoke. Bommakanti told the Task Force he wants to open his tavern at 7 a.m., which was a sore

point with the group. Taverns—which operate under BD7 liquor licenses—may be open from 6 a.m. until 2 a.m., although many choose different hours for various reasons. “Can you name one BD7 below Eastern Ave. that opens at 6 a.m.?” David Martz, president of the Fells Point Residents Association, asked Bommakanti. Delegate Peter Hammen (D-46), who chairs the Fells Point Task Force, told Bommakanti that based on what he heard at the meeting, the community is not comfortable supporting his proposal. “Part of it is the time you open,” Hammen said. “What needs to happen is we need to revisit the MOU.” An MOU is a memorandum of understanding between two parties. In the case of liquor licensees and community associations, it sometimes imposes additional voluntary requirements on the licensee (for example, voluntarily limiting the hours of live entertainment, or not selling certain items, or agreeing to open later). The MOU is read into the record at the Liquor Board and the restrictions, which the licensee agrees to, are attached to the license.

Bommakanti had chafed at signing an MOU in the past, Task Force members said. “What is the goal of the MOU other than punishing me,” Bommakanti asked, adding that “MOUs should be universal and goal-oriented and not punitive.” Victor Corbin, president of Fells Prospect Community Association, said the MOU was not personal and many liquor establishments have MOUs with one or more community associations in Fell’s Point. “Unfortunately, you are the victim of circumstances,” Corbin told Bommakanti. “We have vagrants. We have alcoholics. We have recovery centers and a soup kitchen. We don’t want you to perpetuate problems. You can’t justify serving at 6 a.m. We’re trying to change the community.” Hurdle then said: “Will he sign an MOU restricting some hours? Yes.” By the end of the meeting, Bommakanti said he would also meet with other neighborhood associations to show them his preliminary plans. Bommakanti’s transfer hearing before the Liquor Board, which was originally on the docket for April 3, has since been postponed.

Remembering Upper Fell’s Point’s Jessie Pauline Strozykowski died last month. Many knew her as Miss Pauline. She lived across the street from me. She was known for snaring passersby into uncomfortably long conversations, usually ending with an awkward walk backwards, accompanied by the hope of fading away into a cloud of fog like Batman. She had the smile of a jack-o-lantern and the voice of a squawking crow. Her loose, linen-like skin draped over her frail bird-like skeleton; she was occasionally crowned with one of many wigs. When not

effect it had on the neighborhood and the recent revitalization. She also talked a great deal about her grown children and grandchildren, visibly over-flowing with pride. Beyond her extensive chronicles of the neighborhood, Miss Pauline personified a quirky, yet venerable mentality. When something was wrong with the city, she was the first one to send a hand-written letter to City Hall. She made it a point to sit outside on sunny days, even if it was near freezing.

By Ian Craig | Special to the Baltimore Guide

Miss Pauline

When she and her late husband were on the rocks, he moved into the house two doors down. After that, she said, they had “dates” all the time. adorned with a wig, Miss Pauline’s wispy white hair would be bound tightly in rows of curlers and a bandana. When she went out, she would doll herself up like Raggedy Ann and spritz herself with a handful of glitter. Her roommate was a 19-year-old large black dog who was just as tenacious as she was. Miss Pauline swore the dog had died and come back to life three times. She also said the dog knew when someone was going to die. Miss Pauline was a character you would expect to seep from the brains of John Waters or H.L. Mencken, after a few rounds of the finest National Bohemian money can buy. But she was more than just an eccentric; she was one of the last relics of a Baltimore that has all but vanished. She embodied a narrative and a mind-set forged and molded over nearly a century, with over 70 years on my block. Miss Pauline used to recount stories of Fell’s Point from the time when it housed the majority of Baltimore’s mariners; when children were raised and disciplined by the whole neighborhood; when neighbors mingled in the streets and the corner bars after work instead of retreating to the glow of a flat screen and Netflix. She told stories of her sassy younger self running around to all the neighborhood bars wearing short-shorts, which “brought all the boys around.” She saw the insurgence of the local drug trade and the

She wasted nothing. Leftovers were reused the next meal, and food scraps became soups. Plastic bags became sock liners for cold and wet days, and ribbons and string were used to keep her trashcan and lid from blowing away in the wind. She had a do-it-yourself spirit, patching her roof, repairing concrete and salting her sidewalk, even through this past winter. When she wasn’t able to do something herself, she enlisted the help of locals—she abhorred corporations. Several large pots of plastic flowers adorned the sidewalk in front of Miss Pauline’s house. She once mocked me while I was watering my scraggly excuse for a bush, saying, “Why the hell don’t you just get a plastic one? You never have to water it and it looks good all year.” She was right. It must also be said that Miss Pauline knew the value of portion control. She would only purchase a “shorty” of gin, saying any more would “cause trouble”. She thought outside the box. When she and her late husband were on the rocks, he moved into the house two doors down. After that, she said, they had “dates” all the time. When her husband passed, and she had aged to the point where decorating the house for Christmas became difficult, she trimmed his second house wall-to-wall with bright lights, manger scenes, small snowmen, and Santa Claus cut-outs.

She left the decorations up all year, and when the holiday season rolled around, she spent most of her time in her Christmas House. Miss Pauline also exemplified a sense of love and forgiveness rarely practiced these days. She would give many of the neighborhood “floaters” money to purchase items from the corner store, knowing they would probably disappear for a while and “lose” her money. She would willingly forgive them with such a sense of love, always giving them another chance to prove themselves. Despite their actions, she would continue to treat them with respect and spend hours talking with them. In addition to her great disdain and distrust for corporations, Miss Pauline

hated hospitals. She said “people die in hospitals,” which is true, in a sense. She remained in her home right up until the end, with her old dog by her side. And, just as anticipated, she died the day after she was taken up the hill to Johns Hopkins Hospital. Miss Pauline’s 90th birthday would have been this spring. At the time of this writing, her dog had not moved from his perch by her couch side and was refusing to eat. He may be joining her soon. Neighborhoods aren’t distinguished by names like Canton, Highlandtown, and Fells Point; they are distinguished by neighbors like Miss Pauline. She brought character and a sense of place to a neighborhood and make my block different than any other place in the city.

A security blanket for Southeast Baltimore and beyond When everything runs smoothly, you probably don’t even notice their presence, but Battaglia Security & Investigative Services Inc. has been embedded in Southeast Baltimore—and far beyond—for two decades. “We’ve been lucky in Baltimore,” says company president and owner Don Arnold, a longtime—and active—resident of Highlandtown. “Once we get an event, we usually own that event.” Over the years, Battaglia has supplied security for many of the Southeast’s flagship events, including Latino Fest in Patterson Park, movies in the park, the annual Cinco de Mayo celebration on Broadway, concerts in Patterson Park, the Polish Festival and more. The company, with eight full-time employees and more than 30 part-time, also covers a range of commercial and industrial operations in and around Baltimore. “I get a lot of compliments on my guards,”

says Arnold, “and that’s good—it’s because we have good people.” There are former military personnel and ex-police officers among Battaglia’s ranks, including a former police chief, a retired state police sergeant and a retired sheriff. “I grab military and law enforcement when I can, but there are some people who have been in the business for a long time who have developed very good skills,” Arnold adds. In addition to security, Battaglia offers investigative services for matters including insurance fraud, drugs in the work place and industrial theft. Arnold isn’t personally a big fan of divorce services. “If you suspect that your partner is doing something, 95 percent of the time you are absolutely right,” he says. “I tell a woman, ‘Save your money, fold it and go buy yourself a new dress.’” Some of methods he uses to uncover insurance fraud are quite elaborate, and

involve Arnold taking on alternate identities. “I was a frustrated actor, really,” laughs Arnold, who appeared in a couple episodes of “Homicide: Life on the Street.” Arnold is the first to say that security guards are not police officers. “We guard stuff, and they enforce laws,” he says. “We don’t enforce laws per se, but we usually call the police if somebody needs to get arrested.” Arnold, a Special Forces veteran who served active duty in Vietnam and later in the National Guard, says that he puts special emphasis on training at Battaglia, going well above and beyond requirements. “Police officers think private security guards don’t have enough training, and I agree,” he says, adding that he promotes the passage of national standards every year. “Every year it gets shot down,” Arnold says. Battaglia was founded in Baltimore in 1985 by retiring Baltimore City Police Commissioner Frank Battaglia. “Commissioner Battaglia and several of his top command officers built a company based on professionalism, cost effectiveness and quality service,” says the “about us” section of Battaglia’s website, battagliasecurity.com. “They utilized the same leadership principles that made Baltimore one of the safest American cities in the 1980s.” In 1997, Arnold joined the company as a private investigator. He was named director, Battaglia’s top post, in 2005. Two years later, he went a step further, buying a majority share

in the company and becoming its primary owner. “My wife said, ‘Do you know what you’re doing?’” says Arnold. “I said, ‘Not really, but has that ever stopped me?’” He got right to work, paying of the company’s debt in the first year, and revamping the business to include, among other things, a uniformed division. Arnold says that the company is selective about the work it chooses, being “very cognizant of liability.” The insurance is no joke. “I have men and women who work with firearms 24-7,” says Arnold. “The only thing with insurance higher, in my mind, is a nuclear power plant—owning one.” Arnold has long been involved in the community outside of his work, serving as president of the Highlandtown Community Association for a long stretch, establishing the organization as a 501(c)3 with bylaws, a website and newsletter, and assisting in the start-up of Highlandtown events such as the Wine Festival—with Joe DiPasquale and Dan Schiavone—and the big Blockenstein community yard sale. “I like the neighborhood,” says Arnold. “I would really like to see Baltimore as one of the safest places around—I love the city. It’s been good to me and good to my family.” Arnold sums it up with a quote by Kahlil Gibran, author of “The Prophet”: “Work is love made visible.”

RED LINE: Construction to begin in 2015 or early 2016 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Option 3 would keep two lanes of traffic on Boston St.—eastbound and westbound—open at all times through the approximate three years it would take to construct the portal and the temporary traffic accommodation measures. Traffic would be pushed in phases to the north side of Boston St., the south side of Boston St., and the outer edges of Boston St. The cycle would repeat. Both eastbound and westbound traffic would be restricted to right turns only for the length of the portal construction. If a driver heading east on Boston St. wanted to go to Starbucks in the

Can Company, for example, he would have to drive past the Can Company entrance and make a U-turn at Lakewood Ave. Buettner said that the MTA is “looking to start construction in earnest” somewhere between late 2015 and early 2016. The Red Line would be open for revenue service in 2021 or 2022, she added. A resident asked which portion of the rail would be constructed first. Buettner replied that the portion between the University of Maryland BioPark and the Boston St. portal would be the first to go out to bid. “Specific phasing still has to be worked out,” she said.

Holy Rosary Church is very blessed with having three first-class relics: that of St. Faustina, of Blessed John Paul II who canonized St. Faustina in 2000, and of Blessed Michael Sopocko who was her confessor. Holy Rosary is also the church where Fr. Ronald Pytel received the miracle that brought about the canonization of St. Faustina and where Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass while he was still the Bishop of Krakow in 1978. To honor this special day in the Catholic Church and in the hearts of all Poles, Holy Rosary will begin a 3 day celebration starting on Friday April 25th with Adoration and ending on Sunday April 27th with a Mass celebrated by Bishop Rozanski, joined by priests from Baltimore, some originally from Poland. The Divine Mercy Novena which consists of reciting the Divine Mercy chaplet , will begin on Good Friday at 6:30p.m. and continue daily at that time for 9 days. A highlight of this celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday and of our Popes, will be the one-woman performance of “St. FaustinaMessenger of Mercy” by world renowned singer and performer Nancy Scimone. In an interview with the Catholic Exchange, Ms. Scimone is quoted as saying , “Through this performance, I desire to portray both the chosen soul who receives extraordinary graces, as well as, the soul who, like each of us seeks to know, love and serve our Lord.

BIRDS HOUSE

Orioles batting lineup firms up

It’s about time! The 2014 MLB season is now upon us, and the Orioles opened up with a win against the Boston Red Sox to start their 2014 campaign. While there are probably a bunch of players you already know—like Chris Davis and Adam Jones, for example—I’ll run through the lineup to help you become better familiar with the 2014 O’s. Nick Markakis looks to bat leadoff for most of the season as he mans his normal spot in right field. J.J. Hardy, at least early on in the season, will spend time batting second. When Manny Machado comes back, Hardy might move to sixth. Adam Jones will be the three-hitter in this potent Orioles lineup. Crush Davis will be the cleanup man— most likely for the duration of the season. Newcomer Nelson Cruz will bat behind Davis in the five hole, giving the O’s a nice left-right punch. Cruz came over from the Texas Rangers this offseason as a free agent and will be playing left field and designated hitter on occasion. One area where Cruz excels is hitting for power, but he needs to find a way to get on base a bit more frequently than he has the past two seasons. Matt Wieters will resume his spot behind the plate, bringing his Gold Glove defense to the field every day. After Wieters—at least to start the season— is Delmon Young, who will DH as well as play left occasionally. Young was the first overall pick in the 2003 draft and has bounced around a bit during his eight-year career. Last year Young spent time with the Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies. His best season came in 2010 while on the Minnesota Twins, where he batted .298 with 21 home runs and 112 runs batted in. He also hit 46 doubles that year as well. If he can keep his head on straight, he will be a huge addition to this team. While Manny Machado is out, Ryan Flaherty will spend most of the time at third base. Flaherty is a jack-of-all-trades player, having the skill to play third base, second base, shortstop, and the outfield. When Machado comes back, the infield status will depend on how Jonathan Schoop plays at second as well as how well Flaherty is playing.

Speaking of Schoop, the young second baseman will start the season as the starter. He’s only 22, but hit very well in the preseason, batting .385 with two HR and eight RBI. In limited action last year, he batted .286 in five games, but being ranked as the 82nd overall top prospect by BaseballProspectus.com is nothing to sneeze at. This kid has what it takes to succeed. While Manny Machado starts the season on the DL, there is no reason his starting job at third is in jeopardy once he comes back. It could be some time this month, but the Orioles don’t want to rush his return. Other players that will factor in are backup catcher Steve Clevenger, infielder Steve Lombardozzi, and outfielders David Lough and Steve Pearce. Clevenger was part of the Scott Feldman trade last year that sent Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop to the Chicago Cubs. Clevenger was hitting well this spring, batting .472 with two HR and seven RBI in 36 at-bats. He has played in 83 games in his short MLB career, batting .204. Lombardozzi is a local boy from Fulton, Md., who came over at the end of March in a trade with the Detroit Tigers that sent Alex Gonzalez to Detroit. Lombardozzi has spent his first three years with the Washington Nationals, batting .264 over the course of 705 AB. Lough had a decent spring, batting .310, and gives the Orioles another quality outfielder. Lough was acquired back in December from the Kansas City Royals, where he spent the first two years of his career. During that time, he batted .278 over 116 games. Pearce is a familiar face around Baltimore, as this is his second year with the O’s, although he did spend time with the O’s in 2012. Pearce gives Baltimore another option in the outfield. He played solid in 2013, batting .261 with 4 HR and 13 RBI in 44 games. He showed a knack for getting on base, posting a .361 on base percentage last year. The Orioles led all of baseball last year in home runs, and this year they look to repeat as they will certainly put up their fair share of runs. Stay tuned, as next week I will run down the O’s pitchers.
