Laser Show: David Ortiz
Don't Fall Behind: All 3 starters
There was once a time where Orioles pitching was a non-factor, but they are not messin' around in 2012. Chen and Hammel are had an outstanding April and Hunter has done far more than any Sox starter. These guys are going to be tough and they will definitely have the upper hand in this series.
How we see it goin' down
It has been a very long time since I said this, I don't think the Red Sox have a good chance against the Orioles. I had a tough time typing that. This is not the Orioles team we are used to seeing and I know it is very early in the season, but they are a different team. Maybe it's the magic of Dan Duquette, or maybe it is a hoax. What ever it may be, they are playing good baseball right now and the odds are in their favor for a weekend sweep. It kills me to predict that, but the Sox are not showing us anything that should make me think otherwise.
