Tuesday Bird Droppings

Patrick Smith

O's are gonna start making that playoff push any day now...

A 5 games in 5 nights tour for your's truly continued last night, as I got to see the O's meander leisurely about the basepaths all night without making much of an effort to stray beyond 3rd. blech. crappy game is crappy. Tonight though, I travel to Aberdeen to see 2013 1st Round selection Hunter Harvey take the mound for the Ironbirds. Sweet! Doubly sweet, since it means I won't have to apply any attention towards the O's, who are entirely too frustrating at the moment. Side note: Auto-play videos embedded in webpages are the absolute worst. Worse even, than Nick Markakis at the moment.
