Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus has homered in consecutive games. The one Saturday night against Tommy Hunter put the game into extra innings. And his blast in the first inning Sunday also had some significance. Rasmus' homer against Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez reached Eutaw Street, beyond the right-field flag court. It's the 78th to land there in Camden Yards history and the first this season. Of those 78 homers, 47 have been hit by opponents and four by Blue Jays.

Before long, whether through a rising price tag or poor performance, a baseball team will eventually move to its next closer. The former is how Tommy Hunter replaced Jim Johnson at the back of the Orioles bullpen this year, but not before Johnson saved at least 50 games in back-to-back seasons and established himself in the ninth-inning role. Hunter knows it will take longer than a successful - and tense - month to earn the "proven closer" tag. And he knows that the first step in being a good closer is realizing that there's no such thing as a perfect one. "I think you can do better," Hunter said Thursday of his first month on the job. "I think it's a situation where you know you have a job to do, and I think you've got to just do it and throw.

TORONTO - Even though the two-run homer right-hander Chris Tillman yielded in the seventh inning was the difference on the scoreboard in the Orioles' 4-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night, the familiar flubs of an offense that continues to struggle with runners in scoring position sealed the club's fourth loss in its past five games. These Orioles don't like the comparisons between this year's club and last year's playoff team. They've long turned the page on 2012. But the marked difference between the teams was on display Saturday against a last-place Toronto team.

New Orioles closer Tommy Hunter was one pitch away from his fourth save in as many chances Saturday night before he didn't get the check swing, third-strike call he wanted. On the next pitch, he didn't get the save either, as Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus yanked a 98-mph fastball over the right-center wall to tie the game and push the Orioles into their first extra-innings game of the young season. The Orioles rebounded three innings later when Steve Lombardozzi tripled with one out and then scored on David Lough's single to give the Orioles a 2-1, 12-inning victory and send what was remaining of the announced crowd of 30,446 at Camden Yards home happy.

Orioles left-hander Dana Eveland allowed three runs on six hits over four innings of work in today's road Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays. Eveland, still conceivably in the competition for the Orioles' starting rotation, allowed three doubles in the game, including a two-run double by Eric Thames that put the Blue Jays up 3-2 in the third inning. Colby Rasmus also plated a run with an RBI ground out. The Orioles scored their two runs on Ryan Flaherty's two-run single in the third.

Cardinals outfielder Colby Rasmus (above) is on his way to a very good second full season in the big leagues, outhitting Albert Pujols in April. No one has had a bigger impact on the Cardinals than Brad Penny , whose work with Dave Duncan has him pitching better than any time in his career, and rookie lefty Jaime Garcia . … The Yankees entered the weekend 114-55 since Alex Rodriguez returned from hip surgery last May. People around the team credit his less selfish approach as a factor.

TORONTO -- I've often heard that Rogers Centre is one of the toughest places for a visiting outfielder to play because the fans in the two decks beyond the outfield wall feel like they're right on top of you. One player I used to cover said some brutal hecklers exist in the outfield stands there. Another said that it's more like a hockey crowd than your typical baseball crowd. There was at least one idiot there in the Orioles' 12-6 loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday night.

Technically, our curiosity, as Orioles manager Buck Showalter likes to say, was satisfied on Sunday, when uber-phenom Dylan Bundy faced two batters and retired both in his big league debut. But, for what was left of the announced crowd of 30,205 at Camden Yards on Tuesday, there was plenty of curiosity remaining when Bundy took the mound against the Toronto Blue Jays in the ninth inning for his home debut. He faced four batters and threw 22 pitches, only 12 for strikes. He went to a three-ball count on three of the four batters he faced and afterward called his fastball command “brutal.” Yet he didn't give up a run, thanks to Colby Rasmus' decision to swing on a 3-0 pitch, hitting it to J.J. Hardy for an inning-ending double play.

Snowflakes drifted by my window earlier this month, but spring has danced into my heart, people. This is the glorious time when all the seamheads of the world can shout that blessed phrase: pitchers and catchers have reported! It's weird, but this might be my favorite time of the baseball season. So many questions to ponder. So many teams and players with a theoretical chance to shine. That said, spring training is not an entirely helpful exercise for fantasy purposes. The swarms of reporters in Florida and Arizona don't have much to write about some days, so out come the tales of veterans who reported in the best shape of their lives and youngsters with as many tools as Mickey Mantle.
