Here are the reason’s for one
To be in the
The Orioles offense was blistering Thursday night scoring two runs against the Angles. One off of Matt Wieters RBI single, and another off of Luke Scott’s 16 HR of the year.
On the other side, Jeremy Guthrie pitched pretty well except for giving up two HR’s to Bobby Abreu, a solo shot in the fourth, and a three run shot in the fifth.
C’mon O’s wake up! You got to get the offense going. The pitching is getting there. You just have got to get the wheels turning! We are almost there.
In other news, Melvin Mora asked for a day off yesterday night as his homerless games streak is at 43. I think he is down and out right now. He needs to just go back to the basics… He needs to see the ball better and pick better pitches to hit.
With Uehara out, the O’s want to possibly bring up prospect Chris Tillman who is currently playing in the triple-a international all star game.
Luke Scott is on a role now, bumping his HR total up to 16 now. He is leading the team in HR’s. Maybe if all the Orioles would just hit like him, they would win a few games?
Well what more can I say, Brian Roberts looks like he is still slumping as he looks like he is throwing the towel in. Roberts went 0-4 last night, and watched a fastball in an 0-2 count go right down the middle for strike three.
Tuesday night at Oriole Park in Camden Yards. Dave Trembley commented on the win saying,
“That was just tremendous. It was by far the best game I have been involved in.”
With the O’s down and their starters out, the first O’s hitters of the seventh inning made it an eight run deficit, (score was 10-1 before). Oscar Salazar then came to the plate and mashed a three run home run making the score 10-6 by the end of the inning.
The eighth inning, the O’s struck again, when the first three O’s batters got singles off of Hideki Okajima. Next, rookie Matt Wieters came up to the dish and singled home starting LF Nolan Reimold. Score now 10-7, Ty Wiggington hit a sac fly to make it 10-8 Red Sox. Brian Roberts, who was slumping knocked a single down the third base line, scoring another run making it 10-9 Red Sox. After Felix Pie came up and struck out, it was Nick Markakis. Markakis got a great pitch, and sent it into the left center field gap, bringing home two runs, and giving the O’s the lead.
George Sherrill got to close it out for the O’s, who almost lost it. But retired the side. He gave up a single to the leadoff Sox hitter. Then set down Lugo and Pedroia before beaning Youkillis who had an HR earlier in the game. With runners on first and second, Sherrill struck out Bay, and the O’s went nuts! Sherrill got his 17 save of the year, while the O’s came onto the field to celebrate! And can I say what a win it was for the O’s. That was very exciting and now I believe. Until next time…. GO O’s!!!! 🙂
Adam Jones sprinted to the center field wall in anticipation to catch Kevin “Youk” Youkillis’ home run ball, but instead he hit the wall full force and had the wind knocked out of him. Jones stayed in the game for the second inning until Orioles skipper Dave Trembley pulled him for precautions, with the Sox already winning 4-0. Felix Pie was put in to fill his spot and almost immediately contributed with an RBI triple in the bottom of the third. Although Jones was okay. the Orioles aren’t.
C’mon people out there. We need you all to vote for the Orioles duo, (Markakis and Jones) to get into the All Star Game. They are almost the same in every category, and in fantasy they are one point apart. So why not vote Orange? Brian Roberts needs a push too, but he will most likely not get it due to the fact Pedroia is all publicity now…. So we need all of you to get at least one, yes one O in the All Star Game (ASG).
The Baltimore Orioles have some great fantasy players. Only if they could play together as a team, and had good pitching… Wow, what a team that would be! Brian Roberts is among the best second basemen in fantasy. He is #3 behind Ian Kinsler, and Aaron Hill. Brian Roberts has 281 points. I don’t know where they are in the mix, but Nick Markakis has 263 points, and Adam Jones has 264! That is amazing. And I almost forgot that Aubrey Huff is right behind them with 233 points. So there you have it…. I f the Orioles would just play together than they would be an amazing team!
Now I know the picture says fantasy baseball 2008 so don’t make fun… haha.
