Game 112: Mariners (51-59) @ Orioles (61-50), 1:35

Jamie Squire

Forget about the Orioles winning Sunday afternoon's game. They're up against Joe Saunders. It's not happening. Wei-Yin Chen will do his best to make it happen, though.

There is no good reason whatsoever for any of us to watch this game. It's going to suck. Forget about any chance of the Orioles winning. Soft-tossing lefty? It's over before it even begins. Joe Saunders is the exact sort of pitcher who is why the O's as a team are batting .243/.288/.397 against left-handed pitching. That's so bad that I can't even conjure up words to describe how bad it is.

We're going to watch it, though, because we're Orioles fans and that's what we do. Just don't be shocked by the complete game shutout.

Wei-Yin Chen starts for the Orioles, which is always an encouraging thing. The Mariners hit even worse than the Orioles against LHP, with a .230/.291/.370 batting line. So that's something, right? Wait, this is the cruel dream of hope sneaking in. Do not trust to it, for it has forsaken these lands.

Also, Danny Valencia is back, because if someone is going to suck against left-handed pitching, it might as well be a guy who's actually supposed to hit lefties well. He was on an 0-22 streak when he got demoted before. Maybe he'll break it like Matt Wieters did with his 0-for Saturday night. He may be demoted at the end of the game with Brian Roberts' paternity leave running out, or there could be some other roster move afoot. Who ever knows with Dan Duquette?

Have a nice Sunday, Birdland.
