Jonny Beisbol is on fire. Camden Chat’s Alex Conway looks into why.
The O’s aren’t the only team defying projections so far. The Ringer’s Ben Lindbergh looks at how all seven squads are doing it.

Melewski is using Brooks Baseball now? What?!
And on that note, happy weekend, and more importantly, happy BunDay Birdland!
