Monday Bird Droppings

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday's loss was not fun, but such is life in the AL East right now. Looks it will be an active season for the Norfolk shuttle.

...and about the East: the Orioles play all their games against division opponents this month, save for a series at the end of month against the White Sox, so it would behoove them to kick it up a notch. The Yankees come to town tonight. Tomorrow night is Ollie's Bargain Night and Wednesday is the League-wide celebration of Jackie Robinson's birthday.

School of Roch: Showalter speaks after 10-7 loss "The Orioles scored 19 runs in three games against the Blue Jays and lost twice. Trying to outslug the Jays may be a bad idea." Except that the O's are leading the league in homers and outslug the Blue Jays percentage-wise .446 to .388. I think there are better lessons to be drawn from this series.

Today In Baseball History: The Baltimore Terrapins host and win the Federal League's opening game. The Terrapins defeated the Buffalo Buffeds 3-2. In 1954, the new Orioles lost the opening game of their inaugural season. In 1966, the future World Series champions won their second consecutive game with home runs from Brooks and Frank Robinson. This time, the two went back to back. They would also both homer in the team's third straight win. Jim Palmer also homered and allowed five hits as the Orioles beat the Red Sox 8-1.
