It’s here! The night where the Orioles come home to roost, as our merciless mocking of the club that could do no right (except how, according to yesterday’s Keith Law chat, depending on how the chips fall, they have a not likely, but non-zero chance of heading into next season with the two top prospects in baseball– Manny Machado and Dylan Bundy), will inevitably bubble up into sky-is-falling frustration if the Jays show even a hint of struggle against the would-be pushovers of the American League East.
Strap yourself in for pissing and moaning morons, folks, if we’re treated to anything but a full-scale shellacking.
At the moment I’m writing this– which is prior to a Friday afternoon meeting that I’m slightly afraid might go long– I got nothing.
Ahhh, but there’s one thing: Don’t forget that Saturday’s is a blessed 4:07 PM ET start! So get your BBQ on tomorrow afternoon, get your Gatorade bottles full of wine, and have a buzzy walk through downtown on your way to the game.
Also! For those of you travelling to the games from the east side of the GTA, keep in mind that the DVP will be closed so maintenance workers can TCB. I know, it’s a real PITA.
(Um… yeah. As I mentioned, I’m writing this a bit early, so the lineups aren’t actually published yet. Once I’m free, I’ll fill them in. Or I won’t. You can figure it out on your own, I’m sure. Just check the links above. I can at least tell you that taking the hill tonight is Brandon Morrow (RHP) for the Jays, and Tommy Hunter (RHP) for the O’s.)
