The Orioles are in such a golden state right now that even when they do nothing, they achieve. After embarrassing losses by both the Red Sox and the Yankees last night, the Orioles are a game out of first place in the AL East coming into a series at Rogers Centre where they will face the vaunted Dickey-Johnson-Wang triad. With Jose Reyes on the comeback path, the surging Jays would like nothing more than to begin their climb back into relevance with a series win over their avian rivals. This must not happen. FYI, both tomorrow and Sunday's games are 1:07 PM starts.
