The Baltimore Orioles had an awful week

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 30 April 2007 at 11:14 pm

The Orioles hot start to the season came to a crashing halt last week as they went 1-6!  They were outscored 36-22 as they neither hit the ball well or pitched well.  The Orioles are now 12-13 on the season which puts them in 3rd place in the American League East, 4.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox.

Miguel Tejada off to another good start for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Playing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 28 April 2007 at 12:29 am

Miguel Tejada is off to a good start for the Baltimore Orioles.  In 21 games so far this season, Tejada is 28 for 83 (.337 avg, .859 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 2 homers and 9 RBIs.  Look for Tejada to keep rolling along with the bat as he’s one of the best hitting shortstops in all of major league baseball.  He also plays everyday, but the Orioles are used to shortstops like that.

The Baltimore Orioles place Scott Williamson on the DL

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 25 April 2007 at 2:31 pm

The Baltimore Orioles have placed Scott Williamson on the 15-day disabled list with right triceps tendon tightness.  That’s a shame because Williamson was throwing the ball very well this season for the O’s.  In 6 games Williamson was 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP this season.  He has thrown five innings and he’s only allowed 4 hits while whiffing 6 batters.  The Orioles recalled righty Jim Johnson to replace Williamson on the roster and he will be the long man in the pen.

The Orioles need more offense from their catchers

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Tuesday 24 April 2007 at 9:26 am

The Orioles know that neither Paul Bako or Alberto Castillo is a good hitter but they also didn’t expect them to be this awful.  Bako has played in 14 games so far this season and he’s only hitting .200 with a .589 OPS.  He’s 8 for 40 with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs.  Castillo has played in 7 games this season and he’s hitting .190 with a .547 OPS.  He’s 4 for 21 this season with 3 runs scored and 1 RBI.  He has also whiffed 7 times which is way too many.  Bako & Castillo have done a good job with the pitching staff, but the Orioles are counting down the days until Ramon Hernandez is ready to return from the DL.

The Baltimore Orioles had a great week

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 23 April 2007 at 3:30 pm

The Baltimore Orioles went 5-1 last week and they outscored their opponents 36-26.  The improved bullpen really stood out last week for the Orioles who locked down opponents after their starting pitchers exited the game.  The O’s are now in 2nd place in the American League East with a 11-7 record, 1.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox.

Jamie Walker throwing well for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 19 April 2007 at 6:52 pm

Jamie Walker has really thown well so far for the Orioles and it looks like the O’s spent their free-agent money well on the bullpen.  He has thrown in 9 games so far this season and he’s got a 0-0 record with a 1.29 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.  He has pitched 7 innings so far this season and he’s only allowed 5 hits and 1 walk, while whiffing 9 batters.  The Orioles will be able to compete this season for a Wild Card if the bullpen keeps pitching like it is right now.

The Baltimore Orioles are very pleased with John Parrish so far

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 16 April 2007 at 1:21 pm

John Parrish has been downright incredible so far this season for the Baltimore Orioles.  He has thrown 6.1 innings this season and he’s only allowed 5 hits, 1 walked and he’s whiffed 11 batters.  Parrish always has had the stuff to be a good major league pitcher, but injuries and wildness slowed him down earlier in his career.  Hopefully, he stays focused and healthy because the Orioles definately can use his strong left arm to complement Jamie Walker’s slow stuff from the left side of the bullpen.

Kevin Millar swinging a good stick so far for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 16 April 2007 at 1:15 pm

Kevin Millar is making the most of the extra playing time that Jay Payton’s injury has afforded him.  In 11 games so far this season, Millar is hitting .306 with a .978 OPS, 2 homers and 4 RBIs.  He also has only whiffed 3 times which has really helped him keep that batting average up as he’s not been swinging at too many bad pitches.  We’ll see if Millar can keep this up and if he does what will happen to his playing time when Jay Payton returns from the DL?  Only time will tell.

The Baltimore Orioles had a good week

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 16 April 2007 at 1:08 pm

The Baltimore Orioles were 4-2 last week and outscored their opponents 24-15.  The Orioles are got very solid pitching from both their starters and relievers last week.  The Orioles are now 6-6 on the season and are in third place in the American League East, 1 game behind the Red Sox and Blue Jays.

The Baltimore Orioles place Jaret Wright on the DL

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 13 April 2007 at 8:44 am

The Orioles have placed Jaret Wright on the 15 day disabled list with a sore right shoulder.  The Orioles expect Wright to be ready to return in two weeks when he’s elgible to come off of the DL as they think rest will cure his shoulder.  Jeremy Guthrie will likely take over in the rotation for Wright the next couple of weeks.  He should do well for the Orioles because he was always highly thought of in the Indians organization.  Lefty reliever Brian Burres has been recalled to replace Wright on the roster and give the Orioles another lefty in the bullpen.
