Friday night Orioles game thread: vs Athletics, 7:05

Going into the season, this series looked like a relatively simple one for the Orioles. A home set against a floundering team with no home themselves felt rather straightforward. But a month into the 2024 season these Athletics are far more competitive than anticipated.

A record of 10-16 won’t have anyone confusing the A’s for a contender. But they are far from a laughing stock. In fact, they are rather comfortably situated in fourth place of the AL West, a division that seemingly no team wants to take control of. Plus, they just wrapped up a four-game split in the Bronx against the vaunted Yankees, which has to have this rag-tag roster feeling pretty good about itself.
