Afternoon everyone! Well, our boys in black and orange won today in Toronto, 5-3 after losing last night with Olson on the mound.
Steve Trachsel, who has been inconsistent won today and he had a lot of help from call-up J.R. House who homered.
Jim Hoey looked good as he pitched a perfect 8th inning, and also bailed out Trachsel in the 7th.
Danys Baez pitched in the 9th inning for the save.
Tike Redman had a good day, as he drove in three tuns, while Brian Roberts and J.R. House each drove in a run.
With the Weiters' deal, could this be the beginning of a new relationship between Scott Boras and Peter Angelos? Maybe, or maybe not, and Dan Connolly of the Sun looks the two men.
Sadly, as we found out on Friday, Chris Ray may be out until 2009. There's more news on the injury from the Baltimore Examiner, Washington Post,
With Ray out, Danys Baez will take over the closing duties.
Meanwhile, Roch Kubatko reports that Matt Weiters will not be in Baltimore until Thursday...
Baltimore Sun columnist believes that along with Angelos' mis-management with the Baltimore Orioles, the organization has had some real bad luck in the past decade.
