Well I did want to have a big post planned for game number 100 but it has been a very long and rough day. The problem as it stands is, it's 15 minutes until the thread goes live and I still on the first paragraph... you see my predicament. I started the post earlier and my computer crashed. Usually SBnation saves the draft so everything is good but for some reason it didn't so I had to start again. Then I checked on the tracking status of a package I was having delivered and it said the post office had dropped off the delivery card for pickup.... but they didn't so I had to wait on hold for 20 minutes to get a number and find out which post office was holding my parcel. Finally got that all sorted and I get back home to find my twins in the midst of a full blown tantrum. Joys. Baseball can't get here fast enough.
Tonight marks the return of Brandon Morrow as he had his last start skipped in the rotation to keep his innings under control. He takes on the basement dwelling Orioles and looks to push the Jays to a 10-0 season series edge. You have got to feel for the Orioles, in a year where people were predicting them to start their breakout with their young players it looks like they have taken a couple steps back. Morrow takes on Brad Bergesen, Last time out against the Jays he didn't fair so great going 6 innings giving up 4 runs and 9 hits while striking out 3. I'll take some more of that please.
|2010 - Brandon Morrow||6-6||19||19||0||0||0||0||107.0||104||59||56||7||49||119||4.71||1.43|
|2010 - Brad Bergesen||3-8||17||15||0||0||0||0||83.0||115||67||60||13||28||34||6.51||1.72|
For the lineup we are back to regularly scheduled programming with Lewis leading off and Wells in the cleanup spot. With Morrow on the mound Molina will take up his usual position behind the plate and bat 9th bumping up EE to the 8th position.
For the opposition it is worth noting that they got their leadoff hitter back in Brian Roberts who has just returned from a 4 month stint on the disable list for a variety of problems. Hopefully he takes a few games to get back up to speed because I would like to not have to deal with him on the basepaths.
Tune in after the jump for lineups and series info.
