Sunday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs. Cardinals, 1:35

New, 161 comments

The Orioles have a rubber game against the Cardinals on Father's Day afternoon. They'll be wearing blue jerseys, but hopefully they don't leave us feeling blue - although Ubaldo Jimenez is pitching, so who knows.

I should really feel better after the Orioles won a game yesterday, but when both Mychal Givens and Brad Brach had to pitch in a 15-7 game, can I really feel that good about it? Maybe they'll have a good follow-up performance - after all, the weather should still be good for hitting home runs, which the Orioles did in plenty in that win.

Of course, the other barrier to feeling good about the Orioles chances in this game is the fact that Ubaldo Jimenez has inexplicably been put back into the rotation for it. That's pretty much all there is to say about it - and anyway, I had to write these words on Saturday night before seeing any lineups or anything like that. I trust in your resourcefulness in being able to figure out who is actually playing in this game.
