Time for Norris to step it up.  I'm tired of seeing him go less than 5 innings and throw 100 pitches doing it.

Interesting that Lombardozzi seems to have a grip on second base.  Right handed pitcher and no Flaherty.  To me this is right move.  Flaherty just a decent utility player and not an everday player.  Can't hit breaking ball or LH pitching.  That's a lot of holes.  Great glove keeps him in ML.  In his defense poor guy never had a chance to get much seasoning in AAA or AA.

Lombardozzi put up solid numbers at the plate for DC, I'd definitely give him an extended look over Flaherty.  His OBP in '12 and '13 would've been good enough for second on the team both years.  (Although perhaps this is more an indictment of the O's sorry OBP abilities.)

So replay isn't actually speeding things up, they just go out there and BS waiting for the signal.

Oh man he got out of inning somehow.  He is tough to watch.  Not sure he will make it into 6th at this rate.

I see the boys are providing a lot of run support again

Through 4 they were at least making this guy throw pitches.  What the hell was that?

This offense is pathetic and has been for the most part since mid-July last year.  Once every ten games they will explode to keep the overall numbers up.  Way too many games where they score 3 or less runs.

That was a nice throw from Clevenger.

 

Could we maybe scratch out a run sometime soon?

The difference seems to be the loss of Machado and Davis not hitting the homers.

 

Markakis, Hardy, and Weiters are all off to better starts average wise

It's way too early to panic about the offense.  These guys will hit.  Rule of thumb is ~100 at bats, most of them are only around 40.

When Manny comes back move Schoop to 2B. Flaherty can be the utility guy.

Watching David Lough, I just checked McLouth is off to a 111 start.
