Quick Hits - Fast O's News & the Rundown...

After a day off, and liking their chops after being swept by the Minnesota Twins in three games to start the 2007 season, the Orioles are in New York City tonight to take on the Yankees. Listening to the various talk shows such as the Anita Marks Show, Mark Viviano, and the boys at WNST in snippets throughout the day, there seems to be a concern amongst fans that the Orioles are in trouble.

Let’s take a deep breath, take a step back and chill. Jason from My Baseball Bias wants us to do so. Keep in mind, we have 159 games to go...

I’d say after we get done with playing the AL Champions, the Detroit Tigers at home, if we still have not won a game by then, the panic button might need to be pushed.

The Oriole do have a tough stretch coming up, but in a piece by Spencer Fordin on the website, manager Sam Perlozzo believes that every series will be a battle because of parity and balance in the league.

Tonight, the Yankee Killer, Adam Loewen tries to put the brakes on the recent losing streak. Also, his counterpart tonight for the Yankees, is former Oriole, Mike “the Moose” Mussina.

The Bronx Bombers are 1-1 on the season, so they will be looking to take advantage of the Orioles slide.

Today’s Baltimore Sun has an article on tonight’s starting pitcher, Adam Loewen and how he handles pressure along with his success against the Yankees.

Jorge Arangure of the Washington Post has a similar article about Adam Loewen. Matt Palmer of the Baltimore Examiner also has a piece on him.

In the second game of the season against the Twins, Daniel Cabrera allowed quite a few stolen bases, and that’s a concern for the team.

Sun writer Ray Frager has some good and very bad to point out about MASN so far
