Kqamby5x_medium Trachsel_orioles_medium

Jarrod Washburn, LH (10-15, 4.32/1.38) v. Steve Trachsel, RH (7-11, 4.90/1.60)

Again, the weather doesn't look great, but the tarp is out and the grounds crew has the tarp out waiting on the early rain. Hopefully, we'll get this one in.

Roch has the O's lineup (and got it wrong! [6:36 pm]). Apparently Trembley wants to get all of the position players a start over the homestand. Ugh. Yay, it's like tee-ball.


  1. Ichiro, RF
  2. Jose Lopez, 2B
  3. Raul Ibanez, LF
    Richie Sexson, 1B
  4. Adrian Beltre, 3B
  5. Brad Wilkerson, RF
  6. Jose Vidro, DH
  7. Kenji Johjima, C
  8. Yuniesky Betancourt, SS


  1. Brian Roberts, 2B
  2. Melvin Mora, 3B
  3. Nick Markakis, RF
  4. Kevin Millar, 1B
  5. Aubrey Huff, DH
  6. Jay Payton, LF
  7. Ramon Hernandez, C
  8. Adam Jones, CF
  9. Luis Hernandez, SS

Jesus. Payton. The hitter in our six-hole batted .256/.292/.376 last season. Mother of pearl.


  • Payton hit .172/.273/.329 against the Mariners last season. GOD. To be nice, he's also 8-for-20 with a 1.229 OPS against Washburn.
    In five career starts, Trachsel is 0-4 with a 6.93 ERA and 1.95 WHIP against the Mariners. Eight strikeouts, 14 walks in 24 2/3 innings.
  • I like Ichiro. I bought a bottle of sake to drink over the first inning or so. Ichiro murders the Orioles: .387/.431/.500. That's his best line against any team. He absolutely slays us. And he hits .405 at Camden Yards.
    Adrian Beltre is the opposite: .228/.267/.341 against the O's in his career, with a 29-to-6 K-to-BB count.
