Big series against the Yankees this weekend

32 posts in this topic

I'm not expecting to beat Tanaka on Sunday, but taking 2 of 3 against the Yanks would be great. Who knows, maybe we can also find a way to win on Sunday also.  :)

Sweep the Yankees, Reds sweep the Jays, O's in first by 1/2 game by Sunday night.

 

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

I have a feeling the O's show up big time in this series. The timing just seems right starting with Jimenez getting it done tonight.

Ubaldo....Groan....

As long as I don't see Lough in the lineup it's all good...

They should move Ubaldo to Sunday against Tanaka, and just make it a throw-away game.

That's actually not a bad idea. :)

Wouldn't it be great if we could all collectively manage the team?  They'd be in first place by about eight games.

Speak for yourself.  3 losses max if I was managing.

If things go according to how they usually work, the orioles will beat Tanaka and lose the other two games.

Both teams are pretty uneven and ultimately not all that good. Could go any number of ways, none of which will matter.

That's the exact logic I used in saying that Jimenez will win tonight.

Position by position the Orioles are better than the Yankees. A sweep is required

On paper it would seem so.

Nah, Yankees are currently better at C, 1B, 2B, 3B, and LF.

Not only are the Orioles better position by position by a wide margin, they have been better for a few years, yet the Yankees seem to play over their heads and over achieve while the Orioles under achieve.

The Yankees are also without their#2&3 pitchers, Sabathia and Pineda and have an unproven closer in Robertson. Yet they have a better record.

 

Maybe there isa reason Buck couldn't keep a managing job for very long and hasn't won a post season series,

The orioles could easily have a 2-0 series advantage now. At the end of this series the worst case is they will have a 500 record against NYY for the season.

By the way... there's lots of games left to play.

Weiters is hurt.

Davis and machado should be better. Maybe that's what I meant by " on paper".

2nd base has been a dark hole for us!

Defensively... no

 

Current offensive numbers, yes, unless it's cruz playing left.
