My favorite starter is getting an MRI and won’t be making his start tomorrow after all. This has convinced me that we have a team full of old men, what with their back and hip issues of late.
I am, as I’ve mentioned before, a curse on my favorite players. At this rate, I should start pretending I can’t stand Matusz and then he’ll magically regain his health. Of course, I just don’t have it in me to say anything mean to him, because he’s too boyishly adorable and then he might cry and I’d have to get him ice cream.
The story on Matusz is here. As I’m writing this, Guthrie has pitched three scoreless and the Orioles are up 1-0 on a Markakis RBI single and a throwing error that got J.J. Hardy from second to third after a double to put him in position to come home. I like what I’m seeing from Gutz, though. (Go Cardinal, baby!)
