The Orioles have the greatness that is Erik Bedard starting. Well, there's your preview.
OK, a few more notes. Although his average has dropped 6 points in the last week, Nick Markakis is now our cleanup hitter, at least for today
with Millar getting the day off. Tejada goes back into the #3 spot where he spent much of his time when he first came to Baltimore, iirc. Mora gets Sunday off and Aubrey gets to work on his tan at 3B.
This game SHOULD be slightly more enjoyable than the last five, although unless Bedard decides today's the day to throw another complete game, who knows how it will end? But it should be fun to watch for 6 innings or so.
Let's go O's.
