O's Pitched Into Submission By Talented Psychopath.
With just a quick glance at yesterday's pitching match-up, even the most casual baseball fan could have predicted the outcome of the game.
In one corner you had Adam Eaton, the goofy looking O's hurler, who sported an ERA just over 7.00. To say Eaton is below-average is an understatement.
In the other corner you had Zack Greinke of the Royals. Greinke has rebounded nicely after his mental breakdown during 2006 Spring Training (probably with some help from his hot-ass wife, who is pictured above) and has turned himself into a Cy Young-caliber pitcher. Coming into last night's game, Greinke had only given up 3 earned runs all season.
Needless to say, this one didn't fall in the O's favor as they lost 8-1, with the only run coming from an Aubrey Huff single.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner is... Adam Eaton.
This is a long time coming for Mr. Eaton. He sucks.
Tonight the O's and the Royals play the 3rd game of the 4 game series in Kansas City. The O's are hoping that Rich Hill, who makes his season debut tonight, can bring some stability to the rotation. Unfortunately, Hill has developed some control issues over the past few years so the pitching woes will probably continue.
