Monday Bird Droppings

Hello, old friend. - Thearon W. Henderson

Monday? Again? Maaaaaaannnnnn...

After a disappointing loss to close out an overall positive series in Oakland, the O's head to Seattle to face off against old buddy Joe Saunders. Saund-o is somehow undefeated against the Birds in his career.

As a side note to a discussion in the post game thread, I noticed in the Adjusted Standings posted at Baseball Prospectus that the Yankees and Red Sox are among the biggest overachievers in the league, the Rays are probably the biggest underachievers and the Blue Jays are as bad as they ought to be. The Orioles, however, are ranked third in MLB by BP's 3rd order win percentage (that's good). So there's that.

On this day in 1988, Mark Williamson and Dave Schmidt combined for a four hit shutout as the Orioles beat the White Sox 9-0 and ended their 21 game losing streak.

it;s the birthday of Hall of Fame shortstop Luis Aparicio and also Ron Washinton, Rick Burleson, Baltimore native Tony Saunders and Omir Santos.
