Monday Bird Droppings

Yesterday's loss was disappointing, but the Orioles taking three of four from the White Sox is an acceptable outcome. Anyways, with the AL East gauntlet to close out the season, it's pretty clear where the team's fortunes lie. The Yankees come to town tonight, no doubt with a chip on their shoulder, having lost three of four to Boston. Although they lost those games in humiliating fashion and have taxed their bullpen hard, they scored a lot of runs. Given the flagging fortunes of C.C. Sabathia and the homerrific tendencies of Chris Tillman at OPACY, tonight could be a last man standing sort of affair.
