My take: Is Buck really prepared for this

Buck Showalter is considered a master of preparation, but that doesn't necessarily mean he is prepared for what he's going to encounter in the Orioles organization. If you want to read more on this subject, check out my column in today's print edition or read it on the Web site right here.

I'll also weigh in today on Showalter's first game as Orioles manager, but only after I head out to Ravens camp for early practice and the on-field coaches confab to promote the Sept. 6 showdown between Maryland and Navy at M&T Bank Stadium.
