Bad day for Oriole Pitching, Eshelman, got clobbered giving up 9 runs in 2 IP, Givens and Harvey both allow 2 run homers, and the Orioles have fallen behind, slightly 13-1.

 

The highlights, Wilkerson hit a home run.  End of highlights.

The comeback fell short the Orioles lost 14-2.

 

Hess threw 2 scoreless, and struck out 4, Mason Williams and Stevie Wilkerson hit solo shots.  Nothing else of value.

looks like the Orioles and the rest of MLB just trying to figure things out.

 

If the season were to start 2 weeks late, and that is a big if, it looks like intra squad work may be used to keep them sharp.

 

I would imagine, like they did in the strike years, the roster may expand beyond 26 when the season starts.

Not sure how this helps the players.  Don't go home, no formal workouts, can go to teams Home city.

Update: MLB and the union are now allowing players to go home rather than encouraging them to stay at their respective complexes. There won’t be formal team workouts.

Players also have the choice of heading to their team’s city.

How this impacts the Orioles isn’t known at the moment.

Pretty much what the place would have looked like for game 2.

Who would have ever imagined that the O's staff ERA would be 0 at this point in the season?

I saw it coming all the way.  The talent this staff has is incomparable. :-P

Yeah but what if they go like 24-57. Twenty four wins!? All year. Jesus.

An abandoned season couldn't come at a better time as far as my frustration level with the organization goes. Being abominable for a partial season is considerably more tolerable than doing it all year long. I'll be very glad whenever baseball is back, not care that the team is an embarrassment, get bored for like 5 weeks, and then the season will be over.

It will be interesting to see if the average attendance winds up going up.  After being on lock down and no sports, I know I am more likely to go to games now.

If the Orioles are smart they backload all the giveaway promotions into the shortened season.
