The O’s missed out on a golden chance to pick up another game in the Wild Card hunt, because former Bird Parker Bridwell shut them down over seven innings. OF COURSE HE DID.
Who didn’t see that coming?
Let’s see what everybody is saying about Mr. Bridwell & more today.
The O’s let Bridwell go for absolutely nothing, after never even giving him a real shot at the MLB level. Perhaps he isn’t REALLY a 3.00 ERA pitcher, but it sure would have been nice for the Orioles, and not the Angels, to be taking advantage of his early success, wouldn’t it? Dan Connolly of Baltimore Baseball has more.
The LA Times has a profile on Parker. You have to be happy for the kid, while at the same time being mad at Baltimore’s brass.
Ok, back to pitchers that are actually still with the O’s. Camden Depot’s Matt Kremnitzer breaks down what’s been another solid season so far from Dylan Bundy.
Manny went 22 games between home runs, but has raised his average 40+ points in the meantime. Now he’s hitting dingers too. Hopefully his surge can continue and help propel the Birds toward a playoff spot.
You can hear The Otter on ESPN calling Little League World Series games this week.
