ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

The Kickoff

March 01, 2007|By ROCH KUBATKO

Ilistened closely yesterday, and I can honestly tell you that I didn't hear Radhames Liz's scapula make a clicking sound during his two innings.

Not once.

I stood behind the fence next to the home dugout while Liz pitched at Orioles spring training camp. His fastball is loud when it slams into the catcher's mitt, but that's about it.

Kevin Millar shagged fly balls in left field during yesterday's workout on the back fields.

I know most of you don't want Millar anywhere near left, but keep in mind that Aubrey Huff is projected as the regular there and he's made only eight career starts at that position. Why are so many people OK with that?

Huff and Jay Gibbons also have shagged flies in left this spring. Gibbons will start at first base in today's exhibition opener against the Florida Marlins in Jupiter, Fla.
