Game 161: Red Sox (97-63) @ Orioles (83-77), 7:05

The Orioles look to even up the season-ending series against the Red Sox on Saturday night. Jon Lester starts for Boston against Wei-Yin Chen for the O's.

Time is running out on baseball that involves the Orioles this year, and much as it's been frustrating at times, I will miss them and you will too. So we must enjoy what's left to us, which isn't much, and it may not provide much enjoyment, because tonight it's Wei-Yin Chen facing off against Jon Lester.

The unwashed, unbuttoned, uncivilized tide washes over Camden Yards again. You thought that they could not possibly get any uglier after Jonathan Papelbon left, but they have proven us all wrong. They decided to look like hobos, and so they do. They are firing on all cylinders at the right time, may be the favorites to win the World Series, and I hate each and every last one of them.
