Watch out for the revenge of Jemile Weeks. The second baseman who never got much of a chance with the Orioles before being traded for Kelly Johnson - which is weird, really, that he was traded for a Johnson both times - and now he's in the lineup against them on Tuesday night. That's because Dustin Pedroia is out of the lineup with inflammation in his left wrist and could be shut down for the remainder of the season.
It's not like Boston has anything to play for. There's still nearly three weeks left and they're already eliminated. How sad for them.
Is Anthony Ranaudo the kind of guy who will shut down the O's? He's only made four starts but he has more walks than strikeouts.
