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.

If nothing else, you gotta admit that baseball being on at 8 AM is pretty great.

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.
