Baltimore Orioles Opening Day

We made it, you guys. We freaking made it.

Right between our 17th and 29th snow storm, I thought to myself “baseball is never going to get here. It’s never going to be warm again.” But I was wrong because sure enough, here it is.


The Orioles have had the Red Sox number of late. Last season they were 11-8 against Boston, they were 13-5 against them in 2012.

Boston starter Jon Lester is 15-3 with a 2.94 ERA, 1.318 WHIP and 2.43 K/BB in 25 starts against the Baltimore Orioles. He hasn’t had a tough time in Camden Yards, going 8-1 with a 2.99 ERA, 1.242 WHIP and 3.04 K/BB in 13 starts. Although, as Roch points out, Lester went 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA in four starts against the O’s last season.

In 11 starts against the BoSox, Chris Tillman is 4-2 with a 2.74 ERA, 1.235 WHIP and 2.45 K/BB. Tillman went 3-1 with a 2.65 ERA in six starts against the World Series champs in 2013.

So, we’ll see — I guess.

Cue the motivational quotes!

Right on, Buck.
