Rays vs. Orioles GDT 2: Ugh

Shoulda won yesterday. Actually, the Rays should win every time they face the Orioles.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

I love what's been going on with Cesar Ramos so far this season. But I would really like to see some Ks or fewer BBs -- starting today.

The Orioles have one of the lowest K-Rates in the league (19.4%) but are also tied for the lowest BB-rate (6.1%). They are very much a ball-in-play team. Ramos has so far garnered some weak contact (in part leading to a .226 BABIP, though luck is a partner in that endeavor). Hopefully he can be crafty a little longer.
