Friday Bird Droppings: The Orioles hit the road to face a surprising Pirates squad

Hello, friends.

Did you make good use of the Orioles having an off day yesterday? Hopefully the O’s themselves did, not that I know what they really might have needed to do. It’s easy to point at players who have struggled at the plate over the first two series, like Austin Hays and Ramón Urías, and assume that more work is the solution, but it’s probably not that simple. As Adam Jones once memorably said, sometimes you just suck. The O’s are 4-2 early on even with that, so that’s not too bad.

We can turn our attention today to the Orioles heading out on their first road trip of the year.
