Not a great week for the Orioles, but an improbable win left us energized and in the GIFing mood. You know what, this week might be the first one without a strong Chris Davis presence. Whaaaat? Yes, it's true. If the Orioles can win without Chris Davis RBIs, then we can have a great week in GIFs without Davis carrying it. Or can we? You decide! To the GIFs!

You know, it's just Nate McLouth realizing or acknowledging something that the unknown person shaking a bottle in the foreground just said. Probably here because I ♥ McLouth.
MIGO AND STROP
This is a two-fer. I don't know if that's against the rules or what. Whatever. I make the rules.
Is this the last time Miguel Gonzalez and Pedro Strop horse around in a dugout? Only time will tell. Farewell, Strop.
GROUNDS CREW GROOVE
You can dance if you want to. You can leave your rakes behind.
WAYNE KIRBY MESSING WITH MANNY
Happy 21st birthday, Manny!
Most MLB managers that aren't named Ron Washington have a stoic persona in the dugout. Occasionally, in certain circumstances, you can catch them breaking character. Here Adam Jones jacks a two-run go-ahead home run off of the inimitable Mariano Rivera. The impossible suddenly becomes likely.
Buck can't help but do... something with his body to reveal how excited he his. His face is more or less expressionless but no, Buck, we are not fooled. We were there to make the GIF. We caught you. We caught you last week too.
ORIOLES FAN IN YANKEE STADIUM
This is that same Adam Jones home run that salvaged the series and the mood of all Orioles fans heading into the next week. Here we can see one of those happy fans going nuts at Yankee Stadium.
If you go back and watch the clip of the home run you can see lots of orange in the moderately populated seats.
Did Jim Johnson just jump out of the bullpen bench enclosure as that ball was in the air or did he get up when Markakis got on base? The door is already closed so I think he was probably up. Either way it looks like he is just going about the business of warming up and not paying too much attention to the home run mayhem. Cool.
YES, JIM JOHNSON CAN PITCH
I can't say I'm not a bit nervous when Johnson enters a close game these days, but man, look at that 95 MPH pitch take a hard right turn away from Overbay's bat.
