Happy Kevin Gausman Day!

Nice to finally gain a game on the Yankees. Unfortunately for the Birds, the rest of the AL East did as well, so there was no ground to be made up on the Sox or gained on the Rays & Jays. Oh well. If the club can keep on winning these things will work themselves out. A now veteran Kevin Gausman takes the bump today and faces off against Nate Karns, a first timer like Goose was himself just 5 short days ago. Wonder when the last time Goose took an at bat was? Be pretty sweet if he caught himself a fat pitch and parked it in the stands.

Always good to get the first one in the bag. But it is the JV League, so you should win these games even if you are playing by their antiquated system of rules.

Orioles' Davis continuing to excel after hot start | News

Could Davis be the starting 1Bman for the AL All-Star squad? Certainly has the performance to justify it. But I'd imagine he'll be edged out by a bigger name such as Prince Fielder.

Hopefully the kid has 7+ IP in him tonight. And I have no conception of what Buck is muttering about in his included quote. Musta gotten into 3DG's secret stash.
