At this time last week, I was writing about the Baltimore Orioles losing three of four games to the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards and how the 11-game home stand was not going as planned.
Glenn asked Rob if the Orioles could win the AL East without Davis having a power surge and Neyer said “The Orioles will not reach 90 wins without Chris Davis going on some sort of tear.”
They’ve fallen and it’s doubtful they can get up. Here’s a look at some teams and players who’ve failed miserably so far in this 2014 season.
Scott asked for a “letter grade” from last nights game. The first half, Kubatko gave the Birds a strong C+. They only had one quality start in the past couple games. The O’s are starting to look like a last place team, Kubatko said, if that is the case then he would give the O’s a solid A-. It is time for the Orioles to step up their game a little bit.
Mel Antonen joined Vinny and Rob and discussed all things Orioles baseball
On Monday, Major League Baseball upheld the five-game suspension they originally handed Manny Machado.
Nick Martinez (1-5, 4.65 ERA) vs. T.J. McFarland (0-1, 2.70 ERA). First pitch is 7:05PM.
Rick Dempsey called the orioles series against Tampa disspointing
Barring any rain outs the Orioles will play game 81 of the 2014 season Sunday afternoon when they close out this 4-game series with the Rays.
Where would the Baltimore Orioles be without Nelson Cruz?
Now to Bud Norris who is going to the DL. Norris is not ready to start Friday but he should be coming back July 7th. Scott and Jeremy talk about the pitchers that are lined up from Friday until Monday, but what are the Orioles going to do Tuesday? Of course, Tuesday is still a couple days a way, pitchers are not announced yet for Tuesday.
Mel Antonen joined Vinny and Rob and said the orioles were the best team in the AL East
