Gallardo is on the bump to try and make it five wins in a row for the Birds.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Orioles have the best record in the American League! WHAT!? Third best in all of baseball. On pace for 95 wins at the end of the season. And they just swept the second-best team in the AL. This is a crazy bit of information, especially when you consider that they just lost three out of four to the Yankees last week. This surge came out of nowhere really. It's crazy what happens when your starting pitching actually begins to look like it belongs in the major leagues.

I'm not sure what else to talk about here, so just check out what other Camden Chatters have been talking about today:

-Don't Believe Duquette when it comes to the O's farm system

-Around the AL East

-More talk on the possibility of adding a couple Padres

-A series preview of these very same Rockies and O's

Let's go O's!
