At the start of the season Markakis struggled for the O’s. It looked like he was overmatched. NickyV even suggested the only reason he was in the lineup was due to his Greek heritage, Orioles owner Peter Angelos is also Greek. But now it seems Baltimore might have known what they were doing. Nick is now hitting in the #2 slot in the batting order and in this game single handedly defeated the hard charging Minnesota Twins 6-3, with his homers being the difference.

Nick Markakis 3 for 4, 3 HR’s, 3 RBI’s, 3 runs, .306

  1. While doing the White Sox telecast DJ commented on Markakis’ big night, saying he was a JuCo Player of the Year. Then DJ says to Hawk, “There was a pretty good player who was a JuCo Player of the Year that played with him”. Hawk asks, “Who was that”? DJ replies, “Eric Bullock”. To which Hawk asks, “Who”? DJ says, “Well he had a pretty nice career, but mostly in the NL. It sure would be interesting to see how former JuCo players make out in the big leagues”. Dead silence. It was classic.

  2. BTW, Bullock’s numbers, 1 HR, 12 RBIs, 13 runs, 146 ABs, .205 AVG in 7 seasons. Wonder why Hawk never heard of him.

  3. Where’s the love for El Hombre and his 7 rbis? :)
