Game 2: Orioles @ Rays 4/03/2013

Game 2: Orioles @ Rays 4/03/2013

It's hard to argue with success, but I'd like to see them do a better job of manufacturing runs today. With our pitching we're ALMOST guaranteed a win if we score five runs or more.

Chris Davis is so strong he can just flick a ball into the seats.

3 for 3. Can we actually turn nine DPs in a game?

Unfortunately we missed a big opportunity to take the lead, but we have a shot at extras now.

And our first 1 run loss of the season. The pen was awful tonight.

Really disappointing loss, but the good thing is they are back at it tomorrow and we don't even have to wait until 7 PM. Hopefully they take the series. On a positive note, Roberts looks great as does the rest of the offense.

I didn't watch. Really glad I didn't. The bullpen gave up way too many runs

-How was Chen tonight? I didn't get to see him pitch.
-I honestly could see our bullpen being one of the worst in the league. Relievers' production fluctuate massively year by year. Ayala, Strop, Johnson, Hunter could all have approximately high 3's ERA IMO.
-I would have had Machado bunt in the 9th inning. He has sink on his change-up and fastball; pretty hard to lift a ball.
-The O's will get them tomorrow. The Rays gave us one yesterday and we gave them one today.
