March of the Prospects Continues: O's Sweep Jays thanks to Reimold's 3-run Walk-Off

It's a walk-off.

Rookie LF Nolan Reimold (4 HRs in 13 games!?!) blasted a 3-run shot in the bottom of the 11th to send the reeling Jays back to Toronto with their 9th straight loss. That's the second day in two in which a rookie Oriole totally kicked some Blue Jay butt, after pitching prospect Jason Berken gave up 2 runs in 5 IPs to beat the Jays on Tuesday. Reimold, quite the bargain at his $0 salary this year (no wonder Angelos likes him) is making O's fans forget about Larry Bigbie and salivate over the prospect of a Markickass, Jones, Reimold outfield for the next decade.

Fellow rookie and baseball volunteer (really, ESPN? $0 salaries?) David Hernandez is set to make his pitching debut tomorrow against Detroit, marking the 47th time this year an O's pitching prospect has debuted thanks to their historically shitty starting rotation. But as they say, necessity is the mother of invention, and the O's are currently inventing a dynasty built on a rich prospect pool and Baseball Jesus. You listening Lerner?

Oh and for the heathens out there, Baseball Jesus = Matt Wieters, and if you haven't yet found a branch at which to worship yet consider the Landing Strip your newest freshest connection to Him. Did we mention we're excited for Friday?
