Sure, it’s still the first week of April. Sure it’s just three games. Are the Orioles this good?
Hey, Joe’s not down on the pitching. Not at all. Wade Davis was flying until he hit the wall in the seventh. It happens.
But went you have an anemic offense, a hiccup in an inning like Davis had in the seventh is fatal.
What’s not happening is the Rays offense. It’s Connie Chung impotent and the reason the Rays set a franchise mark in starting the season at the Fruitdome 0-3.
In 27 innings the Rays could only muster 12 hits? The Rays offense could only score a run a game? And today’s biggest hit was an RBI-bunt single? Seriously?
It only gets worse. Now Merlot Joe is talking about Dirtbag potentially missing three weeks. Johnny Damon? Who knows?
After this offensive offense has played three games, Joe has to ask: Are the Orioles this good or are the Rays bats this bad?
