Castro and Rizzo at the top of the order? Sure, why not?

Is Rizzo just teasing us?------or will he show he's found a grove?

As for Lake........I can't say it too often:  Pay the guy a little more and ask him do a bit of hit-coaching.  Get what you can from him while he's succeeding as a hitter.

A piss poor inning.  Which Arrieta are we going to see from here on out?  The 1st inning one, or the 2nd inning one?

......if Arrieta was supposed to be our "Wonder Boy", he's sure as hell has fucked up what it's supposed to mean.

I'll bet dollars to donuts Arrieta pitches lights out now that he's lost the game.  Never fails.....

I guess this is the Jake Arrieta that the Orioles gave up on.

 

Control seems really bad from the stretch.  The stuff is definitely there, interested to see if he can plug out a couple solid innings from here

Would have like to see Rizzo bail him out on Suzuki's 2 run single, that was a very makeable play at first, but the walks are definitely the bigger issue.
