Rays 11, Orioles 3: Well, that sucked

If there ever was a day pre-ordained for a soul-sucking loss, today was it. Tampa Bay was throwing their staff ace, James Shields, while we countered with Adam Eaton. I’m not even bothering with a sarcastic-laden adjective to precede his name, we all know how much he has sucked, sucks now, and will suck until the O’s come to their senses and DFA him. The only question is how many losses he will pile up in the interim and how many reliever innings we burn on his starts. Dude’s terrible.

I’m fighting a nasty sinus infection, and the Orioles gave me absolutely no reason to stay awake for the first 3 innings of this game, so I didn’t. I fell asleep somewhere shortly before first pitch, and woke up with Brian Bass trotting out to start the 4th. I took one look at the score – 4-0, Tampa Bay, and thought, "Yeah, that sounds about right."

There’s not much to say about this game. There’s not much to say about Adam Eaton. And there’s really not much to say about Brian Bass, who was God-awful today, aside from "There’s  Be on it."

So let’s just pick a Most Birdland Player, rip a page off the calendar and be done with this game. Yuck.
