Hey, we've got a bit of a winning streak! Only four games, and against some of the worst teams in the league, but you have to win those games, too.
Archer vs. Otto. Not exactly Drysdale vs. Ford, but alas.
Let's make it five!
Smeltzer vs Perez
Perez has never posted above 2.3 rWAR in a season. He already has 3.1 this season alone. Let's delay that journey a bit.
Time to get back on track!
The end of this game will mark the halfway point of the season. Bullpen insanity aside (seriously. Falvine needs to fix the bullpen... Like.... Yesterday), it's hard to deny that it's gone better than we expected. The White Sox are hurt and still hilariously managed by Tony LaRussa. The Clevelanders are dangerous, but they don't get to face our bullpen every game the rest of the season. And we've still got this guy...
Today, the Sonny Gray takes the mound to try to fend off the Orioles. Gray's been great so far this season, and this kind of looks like a mismatch on paper with Baltimore countering with a not all that good Jordan Lyles. Maybe our lineup doesn't believe is Jeremies. Let's hope.
