Friday Bird Droppings

Tommy was just a little confused yesterday, is all. - David Banks

A sort of newsy hangover helper...

The Orioles seem to have knack for waking up sluggish teams, so maybe facing Yankees team coming off a four game sweep of the Twins is a good thing. I don't know, but I'm sure they're still a little bitter from last week's sweep. I don't really know what to say about the Chicago series other than that it was really annoying.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Independence Day.
