Wednesday’s O’s Links: Dylan Bundy’s Near No-No

Adam Jones gives Dylan Bundy a pie.

Dealin’. Bundy.

What a performance, huh? Bundy’s third 10+ strikeout game THIS MONTH was also a complete game, one-hit shutout that gave the Birds their sixth straight win. The Mariners’ only hit was a bunt single, but it was early enough that there’s no unwritten rules silliness to go along with it. A no-hitter would have obviously been better, but we’re not complaining.

Let’s see what everybody is saying about Bundy & everything else today.

Castillo a Constant in Bundy’s Second-Half Success

Beef gets a lot of flak on O’s Twitter & message boards for his poor defense. Everybody knows that most of the O’s staff fare better with Caleb Joseph behind the plate. However, as The Sun’s Eddie Encina points out, that’s not the case for Bundy, who has fared much better throwing to Castillo of late.

From Suspect to Prospect: 10 Players Who Made the Leap in 2017

The bad news is that you need to subscribe to Baseball America to read this entire article. The good news is that you don’t need to read it all, as the important piece to O’s fans comes on page 1, where Austin Hays tops this list. “With legitimate defensive skills and a center fielder’s range as well as a right fielder’s arm, Hays looks like a future cornerstone in the Orioles outfield.” A prospect! Get excited, Birdland!

O’s Offensive Resurgence Has Been a Group Effort

The Birds still have baseball’s best offense since the All-Star break with a 121 wRC+. How have they been doing it? In short, EVERYONE has hit better. In long…well, click on over to Camden Depot for that.

Surging Offense Near Levels of Record-Setting June 2016

The last time the O’s hit like this was in the halycon days of June 2016, when it seemed like they were poised to mash their way to a World Series. Instead, they fell apart after June, a downturn that culminated in a wholly disappointing offensive showing in the Wild Card game in Toronto. The Sun’s Jon Meoli talked to some Birds about how this month compares to that one.

Jake & Scott discuss the Orioles’ little remaining time to make a run, with Jake taking the stand that it’s actually a GOOD thing that there isn’t much time left in the season. Ya know what? I like it.
