Friday Bird Droppings

As Rich Dubroff notes below a fifth of the season has passed. The Orioles are in the vaguely familiar fourth place spot in the division while the Yankees occupy first. A revolting, but by no means permanent development, for sure. The Birds are just four games back, though, with plenty of games to play. It would be nice to see them build on their series win against Toronto. They close out this homestand with this weekend's series against the Angels and host Seattle next week.

Disgusting.

On this day in 1991, Queen Elizabeth attended a game between the A's and Orioles with President George Bush. A veteran of both franchises, Reggie Jackson was not in attendance.

It's the birthday of David Adams, Guillermo Rodriguez and Eric DuBose. DuBose is probably best remembered for an unfortunate run in with the law.
