What a weekend for the Orioles. What a day for baseball. If you haven't been pummeled into a catatonic state by the pure, unadulterated baseball fury of the past few days, then I applaud your fortitude. I still can't believe yesterday's game happened.

I'm dusting off a boxscore today from 2007. On this day in that year, the Orioles lost to the Indians 10-1. It's a great demonstration as to why I appreciate the heck out of this year's bullpen, especially after yesterday. In this game, Steve Trachsel went 6 innings and allowed one run and seven baserunners. Chad Bradford and John Parrish would then allow four runs in the 7th inning with Jamie Walker allowing four in the 8th. Ugly.

It's the birthday of Brook Fordyce and minor league lifer and heir to the Walter Young-Calvin Pickering fortune, Luis Antonio Jimenez.
