SARASOTA, Fla. -- The "Two Minutes with ..." spring series continues with new infielder Jemile Weeks. The 27-year-old Weeks, who live in Orlando, Fla. was acquired by the Orioles in the Jim Johnson trade from the Oakland Athletics and is competing for the second-base job this spring.

Favorite food: Spaghetti and garlic bread.

Favorite movie: Training Day.

Hidden talent: I can play the drums. I've been doing it since I was little. My mom has a church in Orlando, and I still go and play the drums from time to time.

If I wasn't a baseball player, I'd be … A marketing guy for a company that brings in ideas. My major [at the University of Miami] was business management.

Favorite offseason place: Jamaica. I really enjoy the beaches and the rainforest.

Prized possession: I'm not really a material guy. Besides my family, I don't have anything I can't live without.
