Perhaps the best thing that could happen to the Orioles tonight would be if this bad weather holds up and they get a freebie off day.  Roch Kubatko at says that there’s a 90 percent chance of rain this evening, I couldn’t tell you because I literally never check the weather.

I look out the window.

Jake Arrieta’s 3 2/3 innings of work on Sunday certainly didn’t help an already overused bullpen and the O’s next off day isn’t until May 24.  Their last off day was May 3.

The Yankees come back to town for a four game series between the 6th-9th of September with an off day on Monday the 10th. Sounds like a perfect time for a makeup game.

While injuries continue to pile up in Baltimore, guys like Jason Hammel (sore right knee), Nolan Reimold (herniated disc), Mark Reynolds (strained oblique) and Matt Lindstrom (right middle finger injury) could all use the rest.
