    Break up the Orioles!

    Let's stop the season after two games. Orioles are 2-0 and the Red Sox and Yankees are 0-2. Went to Camden Yards tonight to see the Orioles beat Minnesota 8-2. Nick Markakis has two homeruns in two games, with 4 RBI and is 5 for 7 from the plate. It's early, but he has been a very tough out.

    Hard to believe but opening day was the 20th anniversary of the opening of Oriole Park at Camden Yards

    Assuming you're on the right train, it will dump you off right in front of the stadium.

    They are horrible. It's amazing how quickly things turned in just a couple of years. The Twins have a poor starting rotation, a questionable closer, and pathetic bats for the most part.

    Maybe the Royals can finish 2nd in the AL Central.

    I'm just happy with the sweep and happier that the Yankees and Red Sox are winless.

    Hard to get the hopes up on the Royals as they have been known to light things up early before crashing down hard after a month or two. It has been nice to see the youngest team in the majors only have one bad inning in the three game opening series with the PooHoles Angles. Hosmer got his second one over the wall today and is off to a great start. We just need to get Alex back on track and we could ride this train a while.

    Detroit looks very strong. They are the prohibitive favorites in the Central for sure. They will just plain out score you. Hard to believe what they did to the Red Sox pitching staff.

    A month into the season and the Orioles at 18-9 are tied for the second best record in MLB. They are 9-5 against the AL East and are playing better than they have for ten years. Heck, the Orioles haven't even been 5 games over .500 since 2005. I'm a realist and understand the fade may just take longer this year, but the big turnaround appears to be with the pitching staff. The starters are consistently getting through the 6th or 7th innings and the bullpen is leading the Majors in ERA. Believe me, this is shocking if you have watched Orioles games this past decade where you need to score 6 or 7 runs to even stand a chance. Time will tell, but its been a fun start so far.

    What a wild win for the sweep in Boston. First Orioles sweep in Boston since 1994. Game went 17 innings. Orioles 1B Chris Davis pitched 2 scoreless innings for the win as Boston used LF McDonald who gave a 3 run homer in the top of the 17th. After a 13 inning game Friday night. the bullpens were totally depleted. Orioles move into 1st place with a 19-9 record.

    Chris Davis is the first AL non-pitcher to earn victory since '68

    First baseman Chris Davis struck out five times, grounded into a double play and then tossed two scoreless innings of relief after Baltimore ran out of pitchers, picking up the win as the Orioles beat Boston 9-6 on Sunday in 17 innings.

    My wife and I took in a game at Oriole Park last week. What a beautiful ballpark. The staff is as nice as any I've seen. Great time. O's beat the A's. Saw the Oriole pitcher take a ball in his jewels in a comebacker. First time I've seen that. the game was stopped for 5-10 minutes while he got himself together. Chen is his name. pitched a good game.

    Glad you enjoyed yourselves. That was the only game the Orioles lost in that series. Chen really did get racked.
