Monday Bird Droppings: Protect this house

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Can you win two series on a road trip and still call it disappointing? I think so. No time for loafing, though, as the Orioles are back in town for a four game series against the first place (gag) Red Sox. The Yankees and Royals also visit this homestand, so even from a personal pride perspective, it'd be nice to see the lads get it in gear and stomp some throats.

Of course, as you enjoy day baseball, adult beverages and the grilled meat product of your choosing this afternoon, don't forget to take a few moments and think about those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for your right to do so.
