The rivalry between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles has been lopsided this season.Toronto has gone 12-4 against Baltimore and will look to maintain that dominance when the teams play their final series of the year beginning Friday at Camden Yards.The Blue Jays Michael Saunders Jersey , however, are not the only team that has played well against the Orioles this season.Article continues below ...The Chicago White Sox took two of three games against Baltimore over the weekend. However, the Orioles won the finale 8-4, which means they can’t match the major league record of 120 losses in a season set by the 1962 New York Mets.Still, manager Buck Showalter is having a mini-crisis with his rotation because of injuries.Andrew Cashner was supposed to start the opener Monday, but is dealing with a knee injury. Fellow starter Alex Cobb is out indefinitely with a blister, and rookies Luis Ortiz injured a hamstring and Josh Rogers is pushing his innings limit.“We’re trying to put some things in place to cover us in case there continues to be a need,” Showalter said. “I look at Rogers and Cashner and even Ortiz in kind of the same light. We’ll see how Cobb’s blister, how that all develops. I hope it doesn’t develop. They were talking about potentially throwing some today, but I haven’t gotten the report back on that yet.”As a result, Showalter has not named a starter for Monday against the Blue Jays but has three players in mind http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , none of whom have started this season.Relievers Sean Gilmartin and Donnie Hart are two of the potential candidates. However, Showalter conceded that it’s going to be a bullpen game.Baltimore catcher Chance Sisco suffered a cut on his chin in the fourth inning Sunday against Chicago and his status is uncertain. He is being tested for a concussion.The Blue Jays are also well out of contention, but took two of three weekend games against the Yankees. Nonetheless, there are reports that manager John Gibbons will not be retained after the season. While there has not been any official announcement, Gibbons is preparing himself for that decision.“Maybe they would benefit from getting a fresh face that would grow with the young players. I’m not sure I want to go through one of those things — a total rebuild,” he told the MLB Network.Toronto will turn to rookie Ryan Borucki (3-4, 4.26 ERA) to pitch Monday against Baltimore. The left-hander was solid in his last outing against first-place Boston, allowing two and three hits with five strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.“He was tremendous tonight, no doubt about it. That’s probably as good as I’ve seen him throw,” Gibbons said after the game. “It’s tough to shut a team down. He pretty much did that. He’s got good sink on his fastballs. You’ve got to stay aggressive. They’ve got a real good lineup.”Borucki previously faced Baltimore on Aug. 29 and allowed five runs and eight hits over 4 2/3 innings. He did not pick up a decision, but the Blue Jays lost 10-5.“I try to keep it together out there Wily Peralta Jersey ,” Borucki said. “I didn’t want to show too much, but I was definitely frustrated in myself.” MILWAUKEE (AP) — Former baseball commissioner Bud Selig still would like to cut down the time it takes to play a game.The average length of time for a nine-inning game was 3 hours, 44 seconds this year, down from 3:05:11 in 2017. Games have gradually taken longer since 2005, when the average length was 2:46.Speaking before Game 6 of the NL Championship Series on Friday night, Selig said 2:45 would be an ideal length.“I keep being reminded by guys who played the game for years, they never stepped out of the box, nobody ever allowed them to step out of the box,” Selig said.A Hall of Famer and former Brewers owner. Selig threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Milwaukee hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers.Replay reviews and commercials are among factors that have lengthened games.“There were things that we did that I didn’t like, and I worried about what it would do to the game, like pitch clocks http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-lucas-duda-jersey , but we’re living in a different generation,” he said. “They’re very sensitive. If we can get back to 2:45, I’d be very happy.”Selig said it was hard to be critical of teams that chose to long-term strategies to rebuild back to contender status, a path followed by the Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs in recent years.“Tell me another way, especially if you’re in a medium to small market, but even in a big-market club, that you can rebuild if you don’t have a farm system that’s producing top-notch talent. There is no other way,” Selig said.So all these people that (complain) and yell and scream and holler — if you ask, ‘What’s your alternative?’ They don’t have one,” he added.
