Fair Weather Fan I am Not

I know it is too early to suggest that anyone is turning their back on the O's but I want to encourage all the other sploggers out there to keep writing. Losing two to the Blue Jays definitely brought this experience back to earth. When the O's pick back up and restart their winning season, everyone will have to admit the validity of the team.

Things to appreciate about this series: Pitching. Cabrera and Lopez have been amazing. Todd Williams was the only pitcher to slip and we know that he is otherwise fantastic.

Things to mull over: Why are all of our bats slumping at the same time? Don't tell me its the pitching because it's not. These guys are facing relief pitchers with 4.05 ERAs and getting struck out. See you all around 3pm.

we're back on track!!! I think the expectations have gotten a little too high. The O's may very well win the division this year. And, I can guarantee that they won't go undefeated the rest of the year. They'll lose many games. I know its been awhile since we've been in a pennant race, but we've got to keep our eye on the big picture. With the O's winning 10 of the last 12, the big picture is looking pretty good!

The O's are gonna be OK! They are doing GREAT!! That team has shaped up to be the best in it's division this year and that is exactly what it takes when you have so many young or new players as they were last year..year before.. but I think they have found how to play as a team and they are all great players! Doesn't hurt huh? :) Also..There's NO TEAM LIKE THE "BIRDS"!!! LOVE MY ORIOLES! BJ Ryan is doing an awesome job as the "Closer" by the way :)

what is most amazing to me is the fact that they have not had a losing streak longer then 2 games. That tells me they are maturing as team, and should keep in their winning ways.

Does it involve money in an offshore account or helping your cousin from New Guinea get out of prison? I'll pass but thanks for the offer.
