For the majority of baseball fans, there comes a time in every season when you simply have to give up the pretense that your team has a ghost of a chance to make it to playoffs; seeing this image in my Dashboard this morning sealed the deal for me.
Expectations were extremely low for the O’s this year, but they surprised everyone with a really strong start, and there were moments when the fabled Orioles Magic appeared as if it might linger into September. Curses! The only thing I have left to look forward to this year is watching the Yankees crash and burn.
Well, there’s always next year!
