Series Preview: Blue Jays May 1st-May 3rd

File:Toronto Blue Jays Insignia.svg

This a thing I’m going to do before every series starts.

  • Best Series Record:11-2 in 79 and 80
  • Worst SR: 1-12 in 87
  • Most Runs O’s: 23, 23-1, 9-28-00
  • Most Runs Jays: 24, 24-10, 6-26-78
  • Longest Winning Streak: 15, 9-8-78 through 9-6-79
  • Longest Losing Streak: 13, 4-11-99 through 5-10-09

 

The Orioles have an all-time record 213-239. The Orioles won the series in the 70’s and 80’s but after that it has been Blue Jays.

Last season we were .268 against Toronto, but considering the fact that Burnett isn’t with them that has to make a difference.

The Birds had an ERA of 5.46 against the Blue Jays.

Brian Roberts: .308 BA, 20 H

Adam Jones: .250 BA, 15 H, 4 HR

Nick Markakis: .385 BA, 25 H, 3 HR

Mark Henderickson: 4.85 ERA, 2-6

Brad Bergesun: never played against Jays

Jeremy Guthrie: 2.66 ERA, 1-2

George Sherill: 7.71 ERA, 2 SV

Note: All of these are last year’s stats

ORIOLES FUN FACT OF THE DAY: Jeremy Guthire has never thrown a shutout, Koji has thrown 9 getting all of them in his first 5 years with the Giants.        

The AL East; The Uniform Change Division

Rather then talking more about steroids and A-Roid, how about another AL East subject. How you ever noticed the A.L. East is the only division where 80% of their teams have changes their uinforms since 2000. The Orioles this year the Blue Jays in 2003 and again in 2004, the Red Sox this year and the Rays last season. But guess who hasn’t made a uni change: the Yankees. In fact I don’t think that the Yankees will ever change their uniforms. Also except for the Red Sox all of the teams have changed the unis after a losing season (Not sure about Toronto) And in the Rays case it worked pretty well for them. Ain’t that interesting.  Here are the links for the each teams unis.
