It’s been a rough weekend for the O’s The O’s are hurting

Miguel Tejada has a “balky left hamstring”
Brian Roberts is on the 15 day DL with a strained left groin
Kevin Millar got hit in the wrist with a pitch and is day to day
Javy Lopez is day to day with back spasms

Of course, with all this pain and misery, substitutions have had to been made.
*Corey Patterson is the new lead off hitter.
This didn’t work in Chicago, probably won’t work here…but who else can we bat
lead off? Once Roberts gets back, he’ll be back to lead off and Patterson can drop
back in the order.
*Brandon Fahey is our temp 2nd baseman.
Here’s his season numbers from Ottawa
*Tejada may be doing some more DHing
It’s going to be a tough couple of weeks. The bench is very thin without Millar and Lopez. We can only hope for some strong pitching, those who are healthy to stay so and hit, and those who are hurting to get well soon.

It’s depressing that all this hit at once. Saturday was a grim day, but it started out good. Corey Patterson hit a 3 run homer, that was a MONSTER shot…to put the Orioles up 4-0. Then our friend Jim Brower comes in and gives up the game. I feel bad for Brower because it’s not like he’s trying to give up walks, throw wild pitches, give up runs….but if he’s struggling, then I have more of a problem with Perlozzo putting him in at crucial point in the game.
Why not put him in during a blow out win or loss. It’s frustrating whenever I see him warming up. I feel bad for the guy, but he has a job to do and he’s not doing it.

Of course, I can trash Brower for blowing that game or you can look to the fact that Orioles had the bases loaded 3 times, maybe 4 and only got 1 run out it. So if the O’s could cash in a couple of runs, then the damage Brower caused wouldn’t have mattered.

So we got Toronto for a two game set Monday.
Ted Lily pitches Monday and last week the O’s couldn’t really get to him.
5.0 6 2 2 1 2 3 92-59 6-6
