Ok, I have had a busy morning with interviews and also work, so here's the rundown. The Orioles won a tight game yesterday 3-0, as Erik Bedard met up with KC's ace, Gil Meche. Jay Payton drove in a run, and Nick Markakis hit a 2-run homer late to give the Orioles some insurance.
Chris Ray got his 12th save, and the O's have won 5 straight. Next up are the Angels of Los Angeles, Anaheim, or whatever they call themselves these days.
If only we could play the Royals everyday...
The Orioles pitching has looked real good, especially with the new additions of Brian Burres and Jeremy Guthrie.
Congratulations to Jamie Walker, as he has his wife had a baby boy. However, he named him after someone known to all us O’s and baseball fans – his son’s name is James Leyland Walker. Well, to be honest, I like Jim Leyland and I think it’s a cool thing.
‘In the article, Jamie Walker says: "If people think that I named him after him, that's fine," he said. "We actually picked this name out, but my wife loves Jim Leyland to death anyway. He's a [heck] of a manager, a [heck] of a guy."
