Luis Matos, 2005 Donruss Team Heroes #46

One of the myriad things that I've missed about baseball: the constant chatter during games on Twitter. Just tonight, fellow O's fan and PressBox writer Paul Folkemer tweeted the following after Steve Pearce's second-inning two-run homer:

1h1 hour ago
With his 30th HR as an Oriole, Steve Pearce has tied Luis Matos for 87th place on the all-time list.

That's probably the only time you'll ever see Steve Pearce and Luis Matos mentioned in the same sentence. Speaking of Pearce, here's another one:
Steve Pearce: HR in 2nd straight game. Last 2 Orioles to start season with HR in consec. games led MLB in HR that year (Davis '13, Cruz '14)

So you can mark it down. Steve Pearce is good for at least 40 homers this year. The numbers don't lie, especially in such small sample sizes.
