Game 11: Blue Jays (6-5) @ Orioles (4-6), 7:05pm

Duane Burleson

Last night was one of those bad losses. I find myself scared at the thought of relying on Bud Norris to help us feel better tonight.

There are several things to look forward to tonight. For one, the weather is beautiful! Since I'll be at the game tonight, that is good news indeed. For another, J.J. Hardy is back in the lineup, and David Lough will be manning left field (though he doesn't seem to be fully recovered from his concussion symptoms, which is alarming). Of course, that means Nelson Cruz is at DH instead of Delmon Young, who has been hitting. So we'll see if the trade off ends up being worth it. The bad news is that Matt Wieters, hitting machine, is out of the lineup.

I'm relying on Bud Norris to improve from his first start of the year, and the good news is that it'd be tough for him to be worse. No, Bud, that is NOT a challenge! As you can see below, six of the Blue Jays playing tonight are lefties or switch hitters, and two of the three righties are Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, so Bud will have his work cut out for him.

Let's go O's!
