Good morning, Birdland.  What do we know?  Bergy's out, Jack O'Boskie's in; Hardy's out, Guts is in (most likely); Zach Britton was lights out,  Jake Arrieta...not so much.  Luke and the Doctor appear to be breaking out of their respective funks and Mark Reynolds hit his first of what we hope will be many bombs at OPACY.

Also, the Shorebirds split a doubleheader with the Greensboro Grasshoppers.  Manny Machado walked FIVE times and Trent Mummey had two triples and two steals.  Jason Gurka struck out 10 of the 11 batters he faced in one appearance.

Today is Lee Lacy's birthday, rightfielder for some of my least favorite Orioles teams.
