Friday Bird Droppings: The Orioles look to turn it around at home

New, comments

The Orioles are finally back at home. Maybe that means they can start winning a few games again? In today's links, Kevin Gausman is still trying to turn it around, pitching is sinking the Orioles (duh), and more.

They say it's always darkest before dawn...I don't really have a follow up, there, but it makes you think. Doesn't it? Before the White Sox series, I would have thought a home series against the Cardinals would have the potential to pep the O's right up. Now? Things are tough all over, guys.

On this day in 1986, the Oriole straded John Stefero and Dennis Martinez to the Expos for a player to be named later. Of course, Martinez went on pretty impressive with the Expos over the next eight years going 100-72. Jason Hammel one hit the Braves as the Orioles won 5-0 on this day in 2012. The Orioles hit eight homers against the Phillies in a 19-3 whupping on this day in 2015.
