Tuesday night gamethread: vs Royals, 7:05 PM

The Orioles are back home, which I guess is good or whatever.

He's back!
He's back!

So here we are. Another Orioles game. How is it possible that Orioles games are so depressing on May 8th? It's not right, I tell you! I mean, what are you even doing here? Why are you even reading this? Are you that much of a glutton for punishment? Are you really going to sit down and watch another Orioles game? Watch the team that is 17 games out of first place well before Memorial Day?

Yes, of course you are. You're at least going to start the game. And so am I. Because maybe Dylan Bundy will be the good Dylan. And maybe Trey Mancini will hit a dinger and Adam Jones will look like a younger man as he robs a hit in the outfield. And hey, Jonathan Schoop's back! That can only be a good thing, right?

The problem with being a fan of a bad team is that even when we hate our guys, we still like our guys. So let's hope they give us a good one tonight.
