Buchholz has been on a tear of late, and has generally dominated the Orioles over his career, including his famous no-hitter when he came up. Also, the Sawx are 13-2 against the Birds this year, so I can't really think of many reasons why you should watch this game. On the plus side, the Orioles faced Buchholz on August 2nd and cleaned his clock (7R, 9H in 4IP).
Defending the honor of Charm City will be Mr. Guthrie, whi has put together a string of impressive starts after a mostly awful year. Oh, except for his most recent start, when he got his a** handed to him in Yankee Stadium this past Sunday.
If you DO decide to watch this game, may I suggest you accompany it with some type of libation? It just might make things a little more bearable for you; perhaps at the very least it will help you to tune out the legions of douchebag PHN fans whom you will hear in the stands today..
Go O's! -zk
