One might not associate ocean fishing with 100-pound fish, sponsorships and millions in cash prizes. But for fishing boat captain Ted Deppe, that's what it is.

Pregame Dave 11:13 AM Dave Trembley still is not saying anything definite about Brian Roberts, but he continues to hint that Roberts will join the exhibition lineup this weekend. I'm hearing Friday, but nothing is definite because he continues to work out and test his sore lower back. "He was going to hit today," Trembley said. "I'll check with Richie (Bancells) after the game...He was very good the other day. He swung from both sides of the plate and swung hard. I hope to get him in by the end of the week."

One of the club's top priorities at this week's winter meetings is to sign a left-handed hitter who can help fill holes in left field and at designated hitter. The Marlins are looking to move Morrison after signing Garrett Jones to play first base in Miami. Seven different teams have expressed legitimate interest in Morrison, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

What is wrong with this town? I know there are tons of people out there in Baltimore who are as angry at what just happened to our Super Bowl team as I am, but where is their voice? The word "fan" is short for "fanatic. " Where are the fanatics who will speak up? I listen to the sports talk shows all the time. I hear caller after caller saying stupid stuff like, "I'm excited about the new guys they're going to bring in. " And the line you always hear. "In Ozzie we trust. " On the dollar bill it says In God we Trust.

First baseman Joe Mahoney, who was designated for assignment by the Orioles earlier this week, has been claimed off waivers by the Florida Marlins. Mahoney was designated on Wednesday to make room for newly acquired third baseman Danny Valencia. The Orioles acquired Valencia from the Red Sox for cash considerations. “You're surprised when something like that happens,” Mahoney said. “But when it happened I was hoping I would get another opportunity from another team and I did, so I'm looking forward to turning the page and getting an opportunity to play down south.” The 25-year-old Mahoney was called up to the Orioles twice last season, making his major league debut on July 7 in Anaheim.
