1st place and a 4-2 start on the road, I will take it.

The Orioles 1,2,3 pitchers might not totally suck in the rotation as predicted by everyone.

On to Opening Day....

It’s not that he’s being rested. We’ve already talked about the new “load management” era coming to baseball anyway.

It’s Booney having to tap dance around to invent a reason. He can’t just say “I wanted to give him a couple days off”. He has to give such awful excuses for the absence instead. “Wear and tear” 5 days into the season? “Too many swings” when he was DH?? That’s a bunch of BS. We’ll see if he’s back in there Friday, though.
The plot thickens:

“Boone said after Wednesday's game that Judge wasn't available and he wasn't certain Judge would be good to go by Friday's series opener at Tampa Bay.”

Houck will be back soon, too. He’s definitely one of the top 5 starters they have.

yep, it's more about using his option and letting him refine his splitter.

Is Judge the only player to not play in every game this season? I think it is smart.

If you can rest him the day before the team off then you basically get him 2 days off.

Not seeing what the issue is....Beats going on the IL

Don't count those chickens just yet.........

Gleyber Torres has to be sent to the minors

worst fielder in baseball, and pedestrian with the bat


Could tell he was going to pump that right into the ground just by his body language. His confidence over there is shot.

That said, Bruce should've made the play. It wasn't that difficult of a hop.

I'd be shocked if he plays even one game on the turf in Tampa.
