Heady times here in Birdland. Post-Labor Day Playoff Push in full effect. Quality pitching performances from Randy Wolf and Joe Saunders. Nate McLouth and Lew Ford being useful. Luis Ayala not letting inhierited runners to score. Like some of my engineering homework, I'm still not fully grasping all of this. "May you live in interesting times." goes a Chinese proverb / curse. Indeed, we do.
Baltimore Orioles vs. Toronto Blue Jays - Recap - September 03, 2012 - ESPN
It's nice to be able to savor these things again.
I have a mental image of the Oriole Bird walking down a street while whistling 'The Farmer in the Dell'.
ESPN attempts to make some sense out of it all.
Craig Calcaterra wants what we all want.
A most enticing pitching arrangement. If I lived anywhere near the area, I'd be there to see this.
With the demise of Up and In (more on that in a moment) Effectively Wild becomes BPs primary baseball podcast. Here, Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller spend some time discussing the O's 2012 thus far.
New hired Astros front office dude, Kevin Goldstein say 'Goodbye to the Internet'. Really going to miss this show. Insightful, intelligent, fun, irreverent.....Best of luck to KG in his new endeavor. NSFW language at times.
On this day in 1969, the Orioles bash back-to-back-to-back-to-back HRs off the bats of FRobby, Boog, Brooksy, and Earl Wilson en route to a 5-4 victory over the Tigers. In 1982, Jim Palmer hurls a 1-hitter vs. the Twins.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Doyle Alexander (part of the trade that netted the O's Demper and Scotty McGregor)
