It can only be Friday the 13th when an injury to Jason Hammel has serious implications for the Baltimore Orioles. This is a joke, right?
Hammel is leaving the game, walking off without help. He had his right knee drained over the break; that was definitely the left knee there

The last thing the poor Orioles need is more pitching problems, just as the already-hobbled by knee problems Hammel doesn’t need to worry about keeling over dead due to a complete lack of knees.
Does this make the Orioles more or less likely to reach out for a rental pitcher? Does it make them more likely to reach for an inning-eaterish guy like Jason Vargas instead of shooting for the Greinke moon?
The competitive O’s has some very tough choices ahead of the trade deadline, he couldn’t believe he dared to type. Seriously, on what planet are we right now? Earth 0? Earth X? Nothing makes sense anymore, not one bit…
