Orioles vs. Indians lineups and pregame notes

Greetings from Camden Yards where the Orioles will take on the Indians for the second of a four-game series.

*Third baseman Manny Machado is not in the lineup after exiting last night’s game after 11 innings with groin stiffness. Machado said he feels better today and will not do anything on the field to allow his body to rest. He doesn’t feel the injury hitting or fielding, just the first step or two when running. He’s day-to-day right now and manager Buck Showalter said the club doesn’t believe it’s a disabled list situation.

*Lefty T.J. McFarland is here to help the bullpen and will be activated tonight, with the corresponding move coming shortly. Showalter alluded to the fact that whoever gets sent out could come back on Sunday when Davis goes on the paternity list.

*David Lough was out on the field doing some early batting practice with Jim Presley as he tries to get on track. Despite an outstanding catch, Lough grounded into a double play with the bases loaded last night and is batting .171 in 33 games this season.

Hey Britt !
I haven’t missed a Single Update for the O’s and you continue to Rake
when it comes to covering the Team !! Rah! Rah! Keep it Up Girl ! So SAD to see
Manny back in the dugout but we will Survive – Not going to Miss his BAT that
much is for sure; but his DEFENSE is something that is Keeping Us in the GAME !
Lefty is BACK ! Yeaaaaa – T.J. McFarlane ! He and O’Day are such BIG Factors
in the Bull Pen.- MISSING JIM JOHNSON ABOUT NOW … THO’ JJ ISN’T TEARING
IT UP WITH HIS NEW TEAM … I JUST FEEL THAT; HAD HE STAYED IN THE O’S
ORGANIZATION WE WOULD HAVE BEEN FAR BETTER OFF …

A BIG CONGRATS TO CHRIS DAVIS AND SOON TO BE ” ELLA ” THAT WILL BE
JOINING HIS FAMILY AND THE ORIOLES FAMILY ! IS IT A DONE DEAL YET ??
It’s 3pm here on the West Coast so I am guessing ? That Ella has arrived and
What a Beautiful Thing that is ! GO get ’em CRUSH !! How about a Multiple HR

I don’t envy Buck’s Job of Mixing and Matching with the condition of our BP !!!
This man has such a ” GREAT BASEBALL MIND !! ” BUCK IS TRULY HEADED
TO THE HOF !! May the Orioles Never make the Mistake of ALLOWING Buck
to Leave the Family !!

Kudo’s to Gary Thorne and Jim Palmer !! These two men also Bring an Acumen
that is Incredible when it comes to the Game of Baseball and it’s History … I consider
that to be a BIG PLUS to Watching the Orioles Games !! ADD to this the GREAT
JOB you do Britt and there is NO DOUBT that we ( The Orioles ) have one of …
” THE BEST ” team of Reporters and Coverage in All of the MLB !!

Keep Up the Great Job Britt !!
Thank You for your Great Work …
R.D.

David Lough should be a defensive replacement only and never be aloud to have a baseball in his hands unless the game in completely out of reach.

WOW Brian – Those are pretty Strong Words ! BTW – it is spelled Allowed and
not aloud … Just Sayin’ Dude ! lol You definitely got your Point Across …

We be ” CRUSIN’ TONIGHT !!! ” CRUZ JUST TAKE INDIANS DEEP WHAT A JOY
TO HAVE ANOTHER MAN ON THE ORIOLES CRUSH CREW !! NOW IF WE CAN
JUST KEEP HIM AFTER THIS YEAR … ?? HELLO MR. DAN DUQUETTE AND I
