MLB Thursday

Sorry peeps no play Wednesday, but we had a good size dog on Tuesday to keep the flow going into the weekend. It's still early season so we will cherry pick these games.

Baltimore O's takes two straight win against the Red Sox. How did that work out? It crushed the Red Sox backers as road favorite. O's are 4-4 in their latest home stand, but this .500 record includes split with the Twins, Boston series win and lost to the rain shortened Yankees series in the middle. This team has the making of good dog team and Red Sox is just the opposite. It's a bad team to back especially with this early stage record. I'm sure the daily player who lost the two games with Boston might be shy here. It looks like another Boston situation with Lester on the mound, he's never lost to the O's, and Bergensen for the O's who been serving up long balls with regularity. So do we fade the obvious and take the O's ?
Well, I don't think so. After all that I've said I think the Red Sox make a stand with their Ace on the mound and I like the Lefty righty match up. Sometimes the obvious is play against the grain.
