Since June 18, the Orioles and Blue Jays have spent a lot of time together, enough for seven games since that date.

This one ought to be fun! Cedric Mullins and the Baltimore Orioles traveled to Minute Maid Park in Houston and dominated. After being outscored 26-3 in their last meet up a week ago, the Orioles turned around and one-upped the Astros this time around. Literally, the O’s scored 27 in this series!
The Futures Game: A game to showcase the next best stars of baseball! All 30 teams are represented, with up to two players, making up two 25-man rosters of top prospects from around the league.
The Rule 5 Draft is certainly a system that is far from fool proof.

This has becomeContinue reading “Grayson Rising”
