Orioles Game 14 Thread: at Blue Jays, 7:07pm Eastern

New, 808 comments

The Orioles begin their first Canadian trip of the year on Tuesday night. Bud Norris starts for the O's, with Mark Buehrle on the carpet for the Blue Jays.

Why do they list the games as 7:07? That's what I always wonder when the Orioles play the Blue Jays. In some ways it's just being more honest, because the time of first pitch at a game at Camden Yards is nearly always 7:07 or 7:08. There's probably a reason for it other than that, though. I just don't know what it is.

The Orioles and Blue Jays come into this series with mirrored 7-6 and 6-7 records. The O's start the day in second place in the AL East and they could end it in first or last. These are things that happen early on in the season. Better if they win, not the end of the world if they lose. It would be nice, however, if they could get a decent outing from starting pitcher Bud Norris, as that has yet to happen in 2015. The bullpen, you may have heard, could use a little break.
