Sunday blues and a goodbye to Freddie B.

With today’s loss against the Brewers, the O’s are 1-11 on Sundays. Seriously. Since beating the Mariners on April 6th, the O’s have lost every Sunday game since.

Today’s game was more frustrating because Manny Parra gave up 6 walks in 5 innings. As a team, the O’s left 9 on base. The game turned when the O’s had the bases loaded up in 2nd with one out and Melvin Mora hit into an inning ending double play. What could have blown the game open, instead turned things the Brewers way. Which resulted into 11 Sunday loses in a row.

Ryan Bukvich pitched 0.2 innings and surrendered a homer to Prince Fielder right off the bat. Bukvich was called up and our boy Freddie Bynum got DFA’ed. I’m bummed the Bynum got DFA’ed. I wish Bynum was better, but the move needed to be made. I didn’t think it was going to happen this quickly. Trembley has had Bynum starting most of the time. With that going on, I figured Bynum would be bench for a bit before the DFA went down. Apparently the Hammer of MacPhail falls quickly. Bynum’s gone and Alex Cintron is our shortstop until someone better comes along.

For the most part, Bynum has been a sure 0-4 game in and game out. Though MacPhail and Trembley have both said, they’re willing to sacrafice offense for defense. Bynum’s ok defensively, not great, but ok. Nothing to merit a starting gig in the bigs. I wish it coulda worked out Boom Boom Bynum. But it didn’t.
