Camden Chat: Friday night Orioles game thread: vs Rockies, 8:40
The O's head west to face the Rockies coming off a 1-9 skid over their last ten games. At 15-35, they're now a season-worst 17.5 games back of first in the AL East. If you've been living under a rock, well, I congratulate you. This was a great week to sit out.
The idea of the historically homer-prone O's trying to stop the barrage at Coors Field, of all places, must be someone's sick idea of a joke. But hey, maybe this is the day they make a heroic stand. If so, we'll all be singing of the glory of John Means (5-4, 2.
Denver Post: Rockies recall Jeff Hoffman from Triple-A to start homestand opener against Orioles
As expected, the Rockies recalled right-hander Jeff Hoffman from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday to start Colorado's homestand opener against the Orioles.
Hoffman, 26, is 3-3 with a 7.57 ERA in seven games (six starts) for the Isotopes this season and yielded four earned runs in five innings in his lone major league outing of 2019. That came April 23 against the Nationals at Coors Field, when he filled in for an injured Kyle Freeland.
"I thought he threw the ball well that night -- good curveball, good fastball command, good delivery," manager Bud Black said.
Camden Chat: Orioles-Rockies series preview: The O's face an unfamiliar foe
Man, I sure am tired of the Orioles giving up so many home runs. Well, maybe they'll have more luck in their next destination... (checks notes) ... COORS FIELD?? Aw, crap.
Yes, the O's, already on pace to demolish all records for homer-allowing, now have to play three games in one of the most infamously homer-friendly ballparks in the majors. Welcome to Colorado.
The Orioles have played only one previous series in this ballpark, and it happened way back in 2004. No players from that series are still active in the major leagues.
Baltimore Sun: Orioles head to homer haven in Colorado grappling with their tendency to allow them at historic pace
This holiday weekend brings the Orioles to the light air of Denver's Coors Field for a three-game set with the Colorado Rockies, combining an environment where home runs happen regularly with a team that's giving them up at a record-shattering rate through 50 games this season.
They've been flying out of Camden Yards -- and really everywhere the Orioles play -- with such frequency that it begs the question: Why does this keep happening? Are the Orioles just supremely vulnerable to modern hitters intending to lift and drive everything they can? Is a staff of inexperienced pitchers at this level learning what big league hitters do to mistakes without the ability to stop making them?
