Roch around the clock


The Kickoff

June 07, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

The deadline has passed for teams to submit uniform changes to Major League Baseball. From what I'm told, "Baltimore" still won't be appearing on the road jerseys in 2007. Sorry. I know how much that means to a lot of you.

A reminder that the Orioles are expected to return to a 12-man pitching staff once Jay Gibbons comes off the disabled list. He's eligible on Sunday.

Was there a better name in the draft than Evan Longoria, who went third to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays? I guess they were desperate for infield help.

Ramon Hernandez extended his hitting streak to eight games with a run-scoring single in the first. He's 13-for-29 with 10 RBIs in that stretch.

Which free-agent signings would you rank ahead of that one?
