"I always think everything could be a trap...which is why I'm still alive."

Never have I been happier to see a weekend end. Not a fun series, not a fun homestand...come on, Orioles: help a guy out, here. We never win at anything anymore.

Orioles lose comforts of home and another game to Astros (with quotes) - School of Roch
Not a fun series for anyone. I mean...I guess the Astros enjoyed it, but...gah.

Orioles end dismal series with a 5-3 loss to the Astros - Carroll County Times Peter Schmuck? YOU made me do this, Orioles. I hope you're happy.

Fifty years ago today, Andy Etchebarren prevented the darkest timeline by saving Frank Robinson from drowning. Robinson had fallen into a pool at a party. The 30-3 game happended on August 22, 2007. Do not forgive. Do not forget.

Ned Hanlon, the great innovator and manager of the original Orioles, was born on this day in 1857. Hanlon is buried in Baltimore and you could make a pretty good case that he's at least as deserving of a statue by OPACY as Babe Ruth. Hall of Fame executive Pat Gillick was born on this day in 1937. Ray of sunshine Steve Kline has a birthday today as does Randy Wolf.
