OK, everyone, I'm back after a busy weekend of moving into a new house and not having much time to blog.
Actually, I was ready to provide the usual updates for the O's on Deck readers throughout the weekend, but Comcast wasn't able to hook up the Internet connection in a timely manner. In fact, I'm still waiting and the only reason I'm able to post now is because I'm at the office.
So, everyone was left without the daily game previews and recaps for a couple days.
I'm sure you survived.
Anyway, let's get back into the swing of things with today's previews. I'm planning to head to Prince George's Stadium tonight to check out Double-A Bowie Baysox left-hander Brian Matusz as he faces the Connecticut Defenders, so be sure to check out the blog for updates.
The Triple-A Norfolk Tides visit the Durham Bulls, while the Baysox host the Defenders.
The Single-A Frederick Keys play the Salem Red Sox at Harry Grove Stadium, and the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds are on the road against the Asheville Tourists.
The short-season Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds travel to face the Brooklyn Cyclones, and the Rookie-level Bluefield Orioles meet the Princeton Rays at Bowen Field.
