GameThread: O's (66-82) @ Blue Jays (80-70)

The Blue Jays are nine games out of first place and thus the wild card, as Tampa Bay and Boston are tied at 88-60 and 89-61, respectively. But they're not giving up hope:

"We need a lot of help from other teams," said first baseman Lyle Overbay, who’s hitting .424 with two homers in his last 10 games. "(And for us), it’s just a matter of getting on a roll."They should probably give up hope.

It's interesting to look at the AL East. Tampa Bay, tied for first: yay! Boston, tied for first: disappointing! Toronto, tied for third: hey, not bad! New York, tied for third: YA BUMS!

Baltimore, in fifth: no s***, Sherlock.
