So, that series didn't go as one would have liked, but the Orioles are still in the hunt, have yet another critical division series and have a few irons in the fire as another trade deadline approaches. YOU doin?

Peter Angelos is in no hurry to create an Orioles succession plan - Baltimore Business Journal Insert your own Old Man Potter/Walder Frey jibes here if you like, but if Angelos is guilty of anything, it's of caring too much. Am I right?

On this day in 1969, the Orioles took their revenge on Steve Kealey, who had shut them out in his first major league start a week earlier (does this pattern sound familiar?). Merv Rettenmund and Brooks Robinson paced the six run attack, but the Angels were let down by their defense...three passed balls. Ouch...and Hoyt Wilhelm came on in relief AFTER the fact. In 1996, Eddie Murray hit his 499th career homer and Pete Incaviglia hit a grand slam as the Orioles beat the Mariners and moved to four games back of the Yankees. They had been twelve games back a month earlier.
