It's official: Garrett Olson is starting tomorrow.
This has been in the works for a few days. Olson was pulled from Wednesday's start after two innings because the Orioles thought he might be needed tomorrow.
Tike Redman gets the start in left field tonight.
We'll all remember where we were the night Tike Redman made his Orioles debut.
Here's the lineup:
Brian Roberts - 2B
Corey Patterson - CF
Nick Markakis - RF
Miguel Tejada - SS
Kevin Millar - 1B
Aubrey Huff - DH
Melvin Mora - 3B
Ramon Hernandez - C
Tike Redman - LF
Erik Bedard - P
Hotly anticipated pitching matchups rarely seem to live up to the hype. I sure hope this one does. Erik Bedard vs. Dice-K. It has the potential to be an instant classic.
My only question is, which pitcher will have less to say in English after the game?
Only mad love here for Mr. Bedard. I promise.
