LOL Park at Camden Yards | Baltimore, MD
Aaron Sanchez (4-6, 4.90, 1.55) vs. Dylan Bundy (8-14, 5.48, 1.40)
After a virtuoso performance from Ryan Borucki in a 5-0 win in the opener, the Blue Jays look to carry on the momentum into game 2 of the series.
Aaron Sanchez looks to continue his solid September and end the season on a good note as he takes the ball on the mound tonight. His opponent, Dylan Bundy, has given up a major league-leading 38 HRs so far this season. Om nom nom.
Chris Davis Tracker:
.172/.246/.303 with 16 HR, 183 Ks, OPS+ of 52, and a fWAR of -2.9.
$92M + change to go on his baseball contract, and then $42M worth of deferments to continue until the year 2037.
I know I made a joke about this in last night's game thread, but this is a nice way to show recognition to the National Federation of the Blind:
Tonight, in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the @NFB_voice moving their national headquarters to Baltimore, we’ll host National Federation of the Blind Night. #Orioles players and coaches will wear specially-designed jerseys with Braille lettering. #Birdland pic.twitter.com/XTJmjp6KoG— Baltimore Orioles (@Orioles) September 18, 2018
I like symmetry as much as the next guy, but this is one I can live without (and I wouldn't call 3-9 to be "highly unlikely" considering the remaining opponents). Thanks to Smasher for bringing it over on the other thread:
A stat I find fun/interesting: in John Gibbons’ first run as #BlueJays manager, he finished with a 305-305 managerial record. If the Jays go 3-9 the rest of this season (highly unlikely), he’ll finish his second run as Jays manager with a 491-491 managerial record— Blue Jays Memes (@Bluejaysmemes) September 18, 2018
|Cool concept. The names are: Mullins, Villar, A Jones, Mancini, C Davis, Valera, Stewart, Wilkerson, Joseph.|
This is your "Keep the LOLs coming" game thread.
