So looks like Alex Rios gets the day off today after starting every game thusfar. According to both Rios and Cito, it's a simple day off, despite Rios being a late scratch. Ricky Romero makes his first start back from the majors tonight after a strained oblique muscle, while Jason Berken, up from AAA, makes his first mlb start for Baltimore.
A slump is one thing, but our offense has been nothing short of horrendous at producing runs over the past 7 games. We've wasted a number of credible pitching performances, so hopefully that comes to an end tonight. Let's go Jays!
Today's title from "Maryland Bridge" by the incredible Winnipeg band the Weakerthans.
