Tuesday night Orioles game thread: vs Blue Jays, 7:05

John Means looks to keep being awesome as the O’s begin a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Baltimore Orioles Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a tough year on the field for the Orioles, and it only got tougher with today’s announcement that pitcher Alex Cobb will not be returning to the mound this season. Luckily, we can distract ourselves a bit tonight because John Means, one of this team’s few bright spots this season, will keep on keeping on.

Every outing that goes by improves the odds that Means will receive at least a few Rookie of the Year votes, and he may very well win the thing outright! It gives us all something to root for.

We need this!
