I have to say after yesterday's loss in the second game, and even some of their recent wins, I'm starting to see some things that make me nervous. First are some cracks in their pitching. Wei-Yin has had gotten into serious trouble in his last four or five starts. Not sure if the hitters have just figured him out or he is just more nervous on the mound and being tentative with his pitches...but he really seems to have lost his mojo out there as of late. Same goes for Pedro Strop out of the pen - gets himself into trouble in almost every appearance now. I think Wei-Yin needs a longer rest, and maybe give Brian Matusz a chance to start a game or two.
Next up is the hitting. I know we are still getting some good individual performances at the plate (e.g. Jonesy's 4 for 4 in the 1st game yesterday) but the O's have been pitiful with RISP lately, especially with bases loaded. In the nightcap they had bases loaded three times and could only muster a single run? This has happened in more than a few games recently, and they need to figure it out.
Hopefully they can do some good things in their remaining games - I know this team has it in them!
Let's go O's!!!!
