At least there was entertainment during tonight’s loss to the Orioles and right off the top too. When Buck had his meltdown in the first inning – and no one has meltdowns like the Buckster – I actually laughed. Girardi, at whom he was yelling, was cool and collected in comparison. And the funny part was that it was all about the supposedly covert operation by the O’s third base coach to steal our signs or tip our pitches or whatever the hell it was. Like every team doesn’t try to do that. Please. It wasn’t exactly Edward Snowden leaking government secrets.
As for the game? Tillman’s a tough pitcher. CC made some mistakes. (By the way, he’s a klutz. Every time he fields a ground ball and tries to throw to second, he makes a bad throw – or so it seems.) He didn’t pitch badly and with some run support he could very well have gotten the “W.” Not tonight.
There were only the two homers on our end. Most of the hitters looked off balance and took weak swings.
And now we’ve dropped another game at a time when every win is precious. Not good. Not good at all.
