The O's Head to Oaktown...

The Orioles continue their march -- eh, I mean road trip this evening. After dropping 2 of 3 with the California Angels of Anaheim or Los Angeles (they're confused), they head to the Bay Area.

Monday: Garrett Olson (1-0, 2.70) vs. Dana Eveland (3-2, 3.67)
Tuesday: Brian Burres (3-2, 2.87) vs. Justin Duchscherer (2-1, 2.40)
Wednesday: Jeremy Guthrie (1-3, 4.06) vs. Joe Blanton (2-5, 3.88)

The A's have been good -- very good, and a lot of their strength lies on the pitching front. Until yesterday, the O's offense has been dead; thus, they'll need to keep the bats hot against Oakland.

Despite the A's trading away some of their name players, the youngsters on that team mixed in with some cheap veterans have come out to a strong start and battling the California Angels for supremacy of the AL West.

On paper, the pitching match-ups look fairly even and the game I'm looking forward to seeing is tonight's, as Olson has his second start of the year. He was very good the other day: however, the walks didn't not bite him -- but, if he keeps up the walks, they law of averages will catch up with him and the O's will pay.
