Hughes happy to have an O face

OK, OK, I know. Bad pun. Just talked to former Biscuit Rhyne Hughes, new property of the Baltimore Orioles.

rOn the move: "It all boils down to me doing well. The opportunity is there. Just like anywhere else, you still have to produce."

rOn learning he'd been traded: "I had no idea. I was in the clubhouse and about to go to the batting cage when Charlie (Montoyo) came up and said, 'Congratulations, you’re an Oriole now.' I didn't know what to do or what to think about it."

rOn facing Durham six times over the next three weeks: "When I was with Durham, we wanted to keep Norfolk off our heels. Now, the tables are turned. It's going to be fun this last month."
