This looks like the kind of game they get dominated by some guy you never heard of before.

Orioles have the irritating habit of playing down to the level of their competition.

Once someone gets on base Gonzalez kinda sucks.

I'm getting ready to see Santana instead of Gonzalez in the rotation.

 

I'm still not convinced that Gausman is ready to start at the big league level so might as well leave him at triple A.

Gausman has to be closer than Santana, that guy is just a wing and a prayer at this point.

Gonzalez might not look so bad if the Orioles could hit a lick. They've been pretty feeble offensively for several games now.

Look at Manny there. Flailing away at the first pitch.

Jones!

 

Maybe he's coming around.

The exact same pitch that Adam sent out of the park twice in Tampa Bay. Knee high fast ball in the middle of the plate.

He can hit fastballs over the plate.

 

That pitcher/catcher should be fined by the Astros kangaroo court.

yeah, but I am willing to wait until he is ready. Santana's a proven veteran. Let him come up and start a few, if he can't cut it, release him, but we might as well see what he's got after making the investment.

 

I still recall Gausman getting horribly lit up last year. Don't need to see that again. Let him get something of a track record at Triple A.

Jones is going to end up with an average in the 280 - 290 range and 20 some home runs.

That's the kind of play you expect from an 11-25 team. Let's capitalize. Pearce is the right guy up now.

 

Nice AB by SP. Fact Houston is leaving McHugh in says all you need to about their bullpen.

Honestly, with no outs, I would bunt again.

I think it's fair to say, that we all remember exactly how Houston fans must be feeling about now.

They gotta throw him those every now and then.  If only for Nuke Laloosh 'he ain't seen my heat' reasons.
