For the Baltimore Orioles, the Red Wedding came on July 31, when second baseman Jonathan Schoop, reliever Darren O’Day and starting pitcher Kevin Gausman were traded away. Those deals, following the earlier trades that shipped shortstop Manny Machado and closer Zach Britton out of Baltimore, cemented the Orioles’ status as a rebuilding team.
As prudent as those moves were, it sapped the club of many of its familiar names. Case in point: Gausman, the player featured on tonight’s “Game of Thrones” bobblehead, seated atop a flying dragon, isn’t even here anymore.Still, tonight’s game should be fun for fans of the HBO fantasy drama. While a special package including a catered pregame party that offers a chance to sit in the famed Iron Throne is sold out, there’s still an option for just the bobblehead and a ticket. And no matter who’s riding the dragon, the bobblehead is pretty badass.
7:05 p.m., Oriole Park at Camden Yards, 333 W. Camden St., 888-848-BIRD, orioles.com, “Game of Thrones” packages are $30 or $45.
