A look back at 2009, Camden Chat style.

New, comments

With postseason baseball still going on, there isn't much to talk about Orioles-wise beyond the minor moves that have been made in the past few days. I figure with 1 to 2 days of the baseball season remaining, it might be fun to take a look at the events of the 2009 Orioles seasons. Not a recap or analysis, really, as a ton of sites have already done that, but a look back at some memorable events and how they were perceived by our community. I had fun looking this stuff up and I hope you'll enjoy the walk down memory lane, although it may take you a few days.
