Yarbrough always seems to give the Orioles a hard time.  Hopefully we can get to him early tonight.

Mullins has a 881 OPS against lefties this year, wonder how long we'll be focused on 2022 numbers.

I'm OK with it. I feel like it balances out the lineup.

Maybe hitting at the bottom has taken pressure off him. Hes not losing starts to McKenna like he did last year. So there is that. Speaking of which, in a big park I totally wouldve been cool with McKenna starting for Santander. But Santander sat Sun. So god forbid the guy sits a 2nd game in a row

McKenna provides much better defense and probably a better bat than Santander against LHP.

If one really wants McKenna in the lineup, then slide Anthony over to DH.

You guys can beat on Santander all you want, but unless he gets going, as we approach the tougher part of the schedule, I don't think we are going to be pleased with the results.

He is not the only one, that needs to pick up the pace.

As long as the Orioles offense keeps a solid OBP and they can manufacture runs, they'll be fine.  But if you look at the line-up, it's not going to scare anyone.  They need to be fundamentally sound offensively and keep pecking away one run at a time.

Im fine with McCann at DH but yes I prob wouldve DHd Santander tonight and kept one of the catchers on the bench.

Although one wonders if "War and Peace" would have been as highly acclaimed as it was if it was published under it's original name "War: What Is It Good For?"

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

"I'm too hungover to watch a loss." - McNulty

Is it a rule that every AL central team has to have 3 soft tossing LHP.

3-0 Royals

I think they’ve set a record for most runs scored in a game this season.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Worst offense in MLB and treating Tyler Wells like it's batting practice.

Another game where the BP will be utilized by the 5th inning.
