Orioles Magic is Here

The Orioles are going to enter September 2 games back behind the Yankees in the AL East. The Birds had a huge win over the Yankees in NYC tonight in what could be a pivotal season as we enter the final month of the season. There are 6 more head-to-head matches in the season, two more in New York and 4 here next week between the two teams. Anything is possible, but the Orioles seem to have momentum, heart, and drive on their side. We are definitely going to see a winning season, but I think our Birds have what it takes to play some October baseball.

Let's Go O's!

Empty Seats at Camden Yards

The Orioles are 3.5 games behind the Yankees in the AL East with 35 games left to play. Currently the Orioles are holding onto a Wild Card spot, and there is plenty of baseball left. The Orioles are one pace for their first winning season since 1997. So why is it that less than 11,000 people were at the game last night? Over the weekend, 25,000 folks were there on Friday and again on Saturday. What gives? Is this how we are going to support or team, with more empty green seats than fans? A team that has been playing hard all season with great results deserves more support than that.

There are only 8 home Ravens games, that's three Sunday's in September, I think it's reasonably fair to focus a few of the other 6 days of the week to the Orioles when they are here. There are 14 home games in September at Camden Yards against the Yankees, Rays, Blue Jays, and Red Sox, and September weather is nice in Baltimore

Do our Orioles a favor; grab your orange and black, and get yourself over to the ticket counters on Eutaw Street and enjoy the game.
