O's Win Again, Tejada and Nick Markakis Lead the O's to Victory, 8-4

A’s vs. Orioles - May 27th, 2007

Morning everyone! Hope everyone is having a safe and happy Memorial Day with friends and loved ones out there. As well, with the stuff going on a world away, take out a moment and remember those who are fighting over there. No matter you political affiliation or thoughts, the men and women over there deserve our respect.

The Orioles whipped up again on the A’s at the Yard on a very hot afternoon, winning by a score of 8-4. Yesterday, Joe Blanton from Oakland was the victim of the red-hot Oriole offense as he served up homers to the triumvirate of Miguel Tejada, Melvin Mora and Nick Markakis.

Miguel Tejada has resurged as the power hitter of this team, with his suddenly hot bat and finally hitting the ball out.

Daniel Cabrera, thanks to the offense earned his 4th win, going six innings, striking out 5, giving up 4 runs, and he allowed Nick Swisher to touch up the Orioles for yet another homer, his 5th against the team.

The Orioles embark on a long road trip, as they head to Kansas City this week, then onto Anaheim for the weekend, and Seattle thereafter.

Heather Irvin of Oriole Magic has a preview of the upcoming series in Kansas City, and I was at the game yesterday blogging and giving my thoughts of the action.


Well, before I even go into the game recap, there has been a lot of talk, and I mean a lot of talk of Davey Johnson becoming the manager of the Baltimore Orioles again. With fans of the team wanting a winner, and a guy who’s a part of Orioles nostalgia (as he also led the team 2 playoff appearances in the 90’s), fans were giddy about his possible return.

Let’s just say Davey Johnson not happy to have learned this information in an article by Adam Kilgore in today’s Washington Post. In fact, he more or less didn’t know about the chatter, and wanted no part of it. As well, he defended Sam Perlozzo and wondered why he was on the hot seat.

Columnist David Steele of the Baltimore Sun doesn’t find the idea of Davey Johnson coming back to the Orioles to not be a good idea.

Roch Kubtako has more on this.

To be honest, I don’t think he’s coming to the Orioles, but it was nice to wonder for a day or so. At this point, someone from the front office needs to say publicly and with conviction that Sam Perlozzo is the man for the team.

Then again, silence is never good in this situation.

During the game, Daniel Cabrera got hit with a line drive off Shannon Stewart on his lower back, but toughed it out and got the win. As well, the spirits in the clubhouse have risen thanks to a great series with the A’s.

Sam Perlozzo says that the Orioles need to make a move to contend in the AL East, sooner rather than later and he points out it will not be easy.

Anita Marks, a Baltimore Sports personality on ESPN 1300, pens an article on the MASN website on Brian Roberts and his influence on her not only as a player, but a solid citizen in the community.
