O’s fans be like…
Crush should have known the expectations would be high after signing that huge deal.
The Instagram expert, HaydenWinkler_, fills us in on his in-depth analysis about the pitching staff.
Someone please explain to the poor guy that it’s only the second game of the season and most Orioles fans don’t begin that kind of depressing talk until at least mid-April?
The champs are here!
If you’re in the area or are looking for something to do tonight, the Orioles Double-A affiliate, the Bowie Baysox, are opening their season with quite the impression. The reigning Eastern League champs will be hosting a pre-game Opening Night Championship Celebration, beginning at 6:35pm.
Assistant GM Phil Wrye gave a sneak peak into what those championship rings look like. Seems as if the champs will have quite a bit of hardware after tonight. Makes me want to hum a John Cena entrance theme.
Things Of Possible Interest
Ubaldo Jimenez gets his first start of the season tonight as the O’s wrap up their opening three game set against Minnesota. Tampa Bay comes into town for three starting tomorrow and the projected starters for Friday and Saturday are Chris Tillman and Mike Wright, respectively.
Kevin Gausman is pitching simulated games which is good news. His projected return to the Orioles is April 19th.
Does anybody else laugh whenever they hear the name Trevor Plouffe? Whenever he comes up to bat, I turn the sound up just to hear “Plouffe” over and over again.
Chris Davis sits in 10th place on the All-Time Orioles homerun leaderboard (thanks @RochKubatko). Anybody know how many homeruns he has in an Orioles uniform? No cheating!
As always, Let’s Go O’s!
