Who is Ruddy Yan? And other key questions of spring.
Jorge Arangure, our (absent) Orioles beat writer, has left me his squad to cover today as well. And leading off for the Baltimore Orioles would be none other than Mr. Yan. Some debate about how his name is pronounced, like "Rudy" the Notre Dame movie or like an old alcoholic's face. Not sure. (He's hit .276 in the minors, where he first appeared in 1999.)
Ruddy Yan -- LF
Brandon Fahey -- SS
Nick Markakis -- RF
Aubrey Huff -- 1B
Jay Payton -- CF
Terry Tiffee -- 3B
Jason Dubois -- DH
Freddie Bynum -- 2B
Adam Donachie -- C
Daniel Cabrera -- P
Also: Brian Schneider's pregnant wife Jordan was supposed to be induced on Monday. Problem: She went into labor on her own last night. Schneider left Viera around 12:30 a.m. and headed south to West Palm to be with her. No word on the end result yet. Manny Acta said Schneider could skip tomorrow's game, too. "Family comes first," he said.
And, since I'm taking the weekend off from the Journal, this will be the last post.
