Shaking off last night's loss.

Yes, this picture is old and has nothing to do with anything that has happened recently. But there was no way I was going with a picture from last night.

As the title of Ryan's postgame suggests, there's nothing more that I want to do than forget last night's game even happened. Unfortunately most of the news stories I found were about just that. Back in the dark days (AKA before 2012) I always hoped that the Orioles would just not be embarrassing. Well, they were that last night. Personally, I turned off the game after the triple play to check out the series premiere of Hannibal. Not bad! At any rate, last night was last night and there are 152 games to go. Let's hope they are all better than last night's loss.

School of Roch: Postgame comments on the triple play, the walks and the loss

Darren O'Day and Chris Davis visited the Fan Cave, where O'Day said about Davis: "I think what you get in Chris is a guy who just wakes up in the morning and hits home runs. He's probably the most handsome devil I know. I mean, look at the guy."
