Orioles @ Yankees Game 3

Greetings from the Bronx, where the Orioles and Yankees will square off for Game 3 of the American League Division Series tonight with the series tied at 1. Here are your lineups…

*Third baseman Manny Machado has had his rookie moments, but he’s blended in between the lines. You can read more on that here.

*Jason Hammel will start Game 5 on Friday, if needed, provided his work day today goes OK. Hammel started Game 1 and the Orioles are still weighing their options for Game 4 tomorrow, with Chris Tillman and Joe Saunders being the two candidates. Manager Buck Showalter alluded to being able to pitch one of them tonight, which would make it seem as if they were leaning toward Tillman with Saunders a relief option if needed tonight. Righty Miguel Gonzalez is on the mound tonight.

*Wilson Betemit and Zach Britton are at instructional league and both are options for the League Championship Series if the Orioles advance. Betemit has been playing in games, serving at designated hitter, and will play half the game at first base and half at third tomorrow.  Britton threw three innings in a simulated game yesterday as they try to build him back up as a starting option.

No problem.

Orioles lack of a number one shut down pitcher was the main reason why this team didn’t advance in the playoffs .plus Jim Johnson got tired during the playoffs. i trade Chris Davis rate mcclouth and three high level minor leaders to Seattle for Felix herendez . sign itchero to be a spare Dh. and forth outfielder . plus provide speed off the bench. sign ortiz to Dh. if legs are healthy to a two year deal. sign dumpster to start behind herendez . sign the pin back. find a hard throwing lefty for late in game. sign Ryan Roberts. to start at second base. Brian roberts bench resign the bench. also see if the orioles can find a layoff hitter in the outfielder. who can steal 35 to 50 bases a year. if the Orioles make these moves why can’t they win the world series . and draw 3 million plus to the stadium.

Rate ment to be nate dumpster ment to be demster . sorry for the miss types. i have a smart phone. that’s not to smart.

If the team can’t trade for herendez then sign ranky . also i would entertain signing guthery back. as long as the Orioles Dont spend a number one pick sign who they need to bring a world series to baltimore if the Orioles won 85 games and just missed the playoffs last year i would have said good season . the Orioles were so close going to the world series that’s why i call this season a failed season. this team jumped from basement dweallers to a playoff team. now get the attitude world series or bust. as far as I’m concern. Mr angloes deserves owner of the year award. for staying out of the teams functions. and letting baseball men run the team.

Sorry for any miss types are spelling
