Perhaps the past few games - really, the young season at large - have broken my brain, but I'm oddly excited about tonight. Adam Eaton starting in Yankee Stadium (2009 edition)? If Guts can give up three straight HR to the bottom of the MFY batting order, there's no telling what Eaton will do. Factor in the almost universal knowledge that this should be the last time he befouls an Orioles uniform before the club finally gives up and moves on to David Hernandez/Chris Waters/other, and we could be looking at the flameout to end all flameouts. Oh, and Joba the DUI Artist is the opposition, so there's that wacky subplot to deal with as well. Let's look at Adam's performance to date, shall we?

For the record, the only quality start came against a White Sox team that's dead last in the A.L. in runs scored (150), and 13th in AVG (.245) and 12th in OPS (.701).
I can feel it in my bones. This should be the horrible start to end all horrible starts. Predictions? I'll say 3 IP, 11 H, 8 ER, 4 HR, 1 BB, 2 K.
