Victory at Last

Jeremy Guthrie finally got some run support and shut down the Padres last night, striking out 9 and allowing a lone run.

I like Millar hitting 3rd in this lineup. He gets on base and has decent pop in his bat still. I think that could work in fron of Tejada.

Nick Markakis is hitting .306 for the month of June.

Brian Roberts is quietly putting together his best season since his monster 2005 campaign. The power numbers are not there but he's getting on-base at a .396 clip, hitting .306 and stealing bases at an 85% clip. It's not his fault the O's aren't scoring runs.

Joe Girardi could be named the O's skipper as early as today, more on that when and if it happens.

P.S. Melvin Mora is beginning to catch fire again...
