Game time is 8:11 on MASN2. I'll probably be out since it's Friday and I can't actually watch the game anyway.

Buehrle has dominated the the Orioles in his career, putting up a 2.27 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. His season hasn't been as bad as it looks. He was hideous in his first outing (1.2 IP, 7 ER) but has gone seven innings in all three starts afterward. He had a bad second inning against Tampa Bay last time out (3 ER) and gave up five earned on the day. Dude can still pitch, though.

Burres' ERA is a lot of luck. A whole lot of luck. But I'll take a lucky good ERA over a bad one that makes all the sense in the world, believe me. Hopefully Bri Bri can give us a good six tonight.
