Tuesday night Orioles game thread: at Blue Jays

New, 183 comments

The Orioles have yet to win a game in Canada in 2018. This fact seems too absurd to be true and yet, like many things with the ‘18 O’s, is still true. They’ll try to beat the Blue Jays on Tuesday night.

Can Dylan Bundy arrest his second half slide? We’ll get another answer to that question as the Orioles take on the Blue Jays on Tuesday night. Bundy has given up at least five runs in five of the seven starts he’s made since the calendar turned to July. That’s pretty bad. Well, that’s the 2018 Orioles in a nutshell, isn’t it?

Among the many near-comical bits of failure of this 2018 team is that they have yet to win a game in Canada. Why are they incapable of winning in Canada? They are, of course, not a very good baseball team at all and are challenged winning anywhere, but there’s something particular about Canada where they just... can’t. They can’t pitch. They can’t hit. Sometimes they can’t field. It’s ridiculous but true.

This is the lineup as they will try to break their 0-for against our northern neighbors:

  1. Cedric Mullins - CF
  2. Jonathan Villar - 2B
  3. Trey Mancini - DH
  4. Adam Jones - RF
  5. Chris Davis - 1B
  6. Renato Núñez - 3B
  7. Tim Beckham - SS
  8. John Andreoli - LF
  9. Caleb Joseph - C

Welcome to this disaster, John Andreoli. May you contribute more than some others have. Andreoli will be the 52nd player to appear in a game for the O’s this season.
