Can the O's get their first Saturday home win of the 2016 season? Maybe! They are 0-3 so far plus a postponement.

Game one didn't go so hot for the Orioles, but are we really surprised? Of course Rich Hill shut the bats down and of course both fiery Mike Wright and Brian "DFA him already" Matusz struggled. We expected that really. Plus, Paul Janish played, guys. That's where we are right now. Janish is getting playing time.

Ubaldo takes the mound for game two. Meh. But Hyun-Soo Kim is starting! And Janish has been replaced by Ryan Flaherty! Now we are cooking with gas. And they are probably wearing the orange jerseys a.k.a the best look in sports! OK, I'm feeling confident.

Onto the baseball...
