Your Baltimore Orioles are down a beast

August 17, 2009

Detroit has acquired Aubrey Huff from the O’s for minor league pitcher Something Jacobson. According to the WWL:

Jacobson appeared in 35 games with Class A Lakeland this season, posting a 1-3 record, 3.74 earned-run average, six saves and 44 strikeouts.

Quite the non-beast for beast trade. Aubrey Huff will now have to take his beast-ness to the shithole of America. I don’t really know why anyone might care about this, but at least it wasn’t about the Sox, Yanks, or Bucs. You’re welcome.

Or not… Part II

Well it looks like Joba wasn’t about to throw at Huff this game, but, BUT, that may be because he got rocked in the knee by Adam Jones two batters before Huff singled off Chamberlain. Chamberlain was then promptly taken out of the game due to his shaky knee.

It’s understandable that he didn’t throw at him last night because if he can barely stand up to pitch, how is he going to run away fast enough? I’m sure he will wait until his knee is better to resume his bush league antics. Don’t worry. Let it happen organically. Don’t force it.

Make sure you’ve got some ice ready, Baltimore

Well, the Orioles are up in the Bronx trying to avoid the sweep that will inevitably take place tonight, but we have a side story that may prove to be more interesting that the final score of the game. That is, if it pans out like we want it to.

Joba “Bush League” Chamberlain is the starting pitcher tonight, and Aubrey “The Beast” Huff is in the lineup. If you don’t remember, the last time Joba pitched against the Orioles, Huff took him deep and then threw a fist pump right in his face as he rounded first and then again at home. Joba said something to the extent of “he can do whatever he wants, he hit a home run off of me”. That was in Camden yards. Now they’re in Yankee Stadium. We’ll see if Joba really meant what he said or if he was just a pansy/scared to retaliate in the Orioles home park. The option of him actually being that mature and humble does not exist.

I personally think that he is going to throw at Huff’s head and then act like he didn’t mean it and that “the ball got away”, but then again, it’s become standard fare for the umps to warn both sides before a Joba start, so he risks getting tossed early in the game if he really does in fact let the ball get away. Tough shit, though, that’s what you get for being a headhunter. Hopefully, if Joba throws at Huff or one of the Orioles, they decide to sack up and go after him, as we watch him scurry off the mound and into center field like a scared little chihuahua. Tune in and see, bitches.
