Well he gave up 10 hits to the O's back on the 9th of April. @ Camden Yards - and the confines of Yankee Stadium are much more better these pesky Orioles.
Arrieta got a bit roughed up his last outing -vs- 'dem Yankees (4ER, 5H, over 6.2IP) but the Orioles are pretty damn good team these past couple years @ Yankee Stadium averaging close to 6 runs per. This is from 2010 to present.
The value is there for an Orioles team who can make everyone take notice very early in the season as a team that could be - then the 2nd half gets near and the Orioles drop off the map...
So I don't have any golden nuggets - but just a couple stats & hunches.
