Wednesday Bird Droppings are working on their defense

Pretty much everything went wrong yesterday other than Dylan Bundy, recover from the loss with these helpful links!

Happy Wednesday, Camden Chatters. If you watched last night's game you're probably not feeling too good about your Orioles right now. They couldn't hit, they couldn't play defense, and their relief pitching wasn't so great. But how about that Dylan Bundy? He wasn't quite as sharp as his first start, but he looks like something special. Be sure to check out Randy DeCleene's recap of the carnage.

If the Orioles can win tonight it'll get that bad taste out of our mouths, that's the good thing about baseball. There's always another game. Let's just take a look at the schedule...Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Steven Wright? Oh. Forget that for now. Let's read some links instead.
