Orioles GIFs of the Week

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

It's another episode of the premiere weekly Orioles GIFs roundup (as far as I know)! This week: West Coast Edition.

National League style of baseball! Laughing seagulls! Pitchers (kinda) hitting! It's funny when you're winning!

Soon we will know what the very best GIF of the first half was, but for now we need to fill out the second half. Let's get to it.

Place your mouse over the GIFs to activate. Vote for your favorite below.

O'DAY K

Bud Norris got an ugly hit. Chen hit a couple balls hard into gloves. O'Day... got an at bat, anyway! Perhaps thinking this may be one of the few chances an AL reliever may have to be the hitting hero, O'Day looked quite fiercely determined to improve the Orioles' RISP numbers. This prompted a few laughs from the bench even before he struck out and flipped his bat up, grabbing the head with his other hand. This (dead serious?) impression of a "real hitter" caused the dugout to lose it.

CORNER INFIELDER HUG, AGAIN

This is at least the third time I've posted one of these. I kinda have to because:

1. It only happens after a win

2. Thinking about the Orioles winning makes most people that are reading this happy

3. Stacey said she liked it the first time

You might see this again.

SAN DIEGO SEAGULLS

Don't adjust your television set or computing device - there are no Orioles in this GIF. But if you saw this game against the Padres, then you probably remember Gary Thorne cackling about these seagulls and fixating on them for minutes on end. Never change, Gary.

ORIOLES FANS OF THE WEST

There were a lot of Orioles fans in San Diego. Harder to tell how many there were in San Francisco.

HAPPY HARDY

Just a GIF of J.J. Hardy looking happy. I had to include it in case it makes you happy, too.

SEEDY TILLMAN

Unseen Orioles out of frame, to the right, threw handfuls of sunflower seeds at "#StaffAce" Chris "Tilly" Tillman pretty much nonstop throughout his interview with the *shudder* Fox guys.

THOR FAN IN MCCOVEY COVE

Cove-davis-fan_medium

Unfortunately, he didn't hit one there. But he had a decent series including a homer hit elsewhere.

That's it for this week. Don't forget to vote below. Follow @OriolesGIFs for all of the GIF action all week long. Retweet some stuff. Send me your requests by tweeting at that handle. Keep an eye out for the exciting conclusion of the first half GIF tournament this week. Thanks for watching!
