It’s playoff time. The Orioles made the October Dance, and now have a 1-in-5 chance to get to the World Series for the first time in 33 years.
All tabs are $19.83, no matter how much you imbibe today.
I have a simple question for you. It’s one of those-second guessing things that will be resolved by about 9:30 tonight.
Until then – or at least until 8:08 p.m. – let the debate rage.
Tillman or Ubaldo?
Orioles manager Buck Showalter chose Chris Tillman to start Tuesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in the one-game, AL Wild Card playoff.
It’s crazy – and a real testament to what he has done in his last seven starts – that Jimenez is in this conversation. And it’s a good one.
Do you go with the team’s best pitcher or the pitcher that is pitching the best?
Showalter is big on track records, and I do think Tillman is the most poised out of the entire rotation, so he won’t put too much pressure on himself in this huge game. To read more of my thoughts and the pertinent stats, you can check out this piece.
But in the Tap Room today, I want to know your thoughts.
