Gamethread: Orioles at Phillies, 1:05 PM EDT

If you're seeing this gamethread, it means it's already 12:30, and the game starts in half an hour. Did you set your clocks forward?

The game is being broadcast on MLB.com's GameDay Audio, and on WPHT 1210 Philadelphia (squeezed in between Rush and Sean).

Hey look, Izzy is batting leadoff. Woo-hoo!

Brian Matusz gets the call for the Birds. Last Monday he gave up 2 runs in 2-2/3 IP, but fanned 6 Twins along the way. He'll be opposed by Kyle Kendrick for the Phils. 

There's also a "B" game in in Pirate CIty (closed to the public) which will be started by Jake Arrieta. Trembley is attending that one, so it'll be fun to see who manages the A squad today. My money is on Kevin Millar

Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring; besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls. It's more democratic....And don't hold the ball so hard, OK? It's an egg. Hold it like an egg.
