The post-holiday hangover is real as baseball news is almost nonexistent.
There were no surprises in the makeup of Brandon Hyde’s staff.
There will be actual baseball news today, albeit quite small.
The Orioles have a star, Akin is getting surgery, and Rom is on the rise.
The Milwaukee starter was dominant for eight innings Saturday night.
The Cubs threw one Thursday night. Let’s take a brief look at all the others.
The Orioles have a lot of problems, but their center fielder is most definitely not one.
It’s two losses in a row for the Birds as the lineup struggles to score runs even with the return of Austin Hays.
A win on Friday makes it three in a row for the O’s, keeping them perfect on the month.
It just so happened to be the result of a rainout, but let’s not dwell on that.
Things are just not going well for the O’s, but there is still news worth discussing.
Weeks like this serve as a gentle reminder of just how far the O’s still are from where they want to be.
