The Birds take on the Blue Jays at 1:05 today, and the game will be broadcast live on MASN. Wade Miley will look to continue the string of impressive O’s starts.

Let’s hit the links.

Machado on Gausman: “He’s Supposed to Get Me Out”

Yesterday, the Orioles took on the Dominican WBC team, which boasts a ridiculous lineup. Undaunted, Kevin Gausman tossed three hitless innings, and retired Manny Machado on a groundout to third the only time the two faced. PressBox’s Rich Dubroff has quotes from Manny & Gas Man.

Dylan Bundy Looks Ready to Break Out

The Dylan Bundy hype train continues to get more and more crowded. Today, it’s FanGraphs’ Travis Sawchik discussing Bundy’s cutter and how it could propel him to the next level. Some quotes in here from Dylan as well.

Showalter Discusses Pitching Decisions, O’s Ownership, 2017 Outlook

The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafordo sat down with Buck over the weekend to talk about – of course – the Wild Card game decision to not bring in Zach Britton, the rigors of managing a bullpen throughout the season, and working for Peter Angelos.

Why Orioles Fans Should Watch the World Baseball Classic

I’ve never been into the WBC in the past, but I’m making myself follow it this year. As I write this, Netherlands-Chinese Taipei is on in the background (but unfortunately, I know that this is a re-air and not live, and I already know who wins and how). Bob Harkins of Baltimore Sports and Life has some compelling reasons for O’s fans to tune into MLB Network if they’re able. Join me, won’t you? If nothing else, you gotta admit that baseball being on at 8 AM is pretty great.

Trumbo Isn’t the Ideal Leadoff Hitter – Chris Davis Is

The gents at Camden Depot have been tinkering with lineup construction over the past few weeks, with some interesting results. Jon found that Mark Trumbo would be the team’s ideal leadoff hitter, but Patrick Dougherty didn’t think that was right, so he dug deeper…and found that Chris Davis should actually lead off. Fun stuff.
