Monday’s O’s Links – We Could Have Used More Rain

Certainly not the weekend any of us were hoping for up in Beantown. The O’s lost all three games they played, and today’s brunchtime tilt has already been rained out. The weather gods are showing the Birds some mercy at least, even if the Red Sox hitters were in no such mood.

Hopefully the Birds can regroup a bit today before they head out to face Detroit. This will be just their second series of the year against a team that didn’t make the playoffs in 2017, so it would be a great time to rack up a few wins and get back on the right side of the ledger for a bit.

FanGraphs has a funny little Trey Mancini story, and we could all use a smile.

Firing Buck Would Answer Just One of O’s Many Questions

Apparently Bovada of Las Vegas has Buck Showalter as their manager most likely to be fired this season, at last look. Only people with no sense of context at all about the Orioles would say such a thing, but our own Andrew Stetka, in his weekly MASN guest column, addresses the silliness.
