    Derrick Lee is now an Oriole. HUGE offseason so far. There are now ZERO holes in the lineup.
    If Andy can now just land 2 top relief arms, the O’s will..

    as predicted by Sports Illustrated’s Rob Sheehan in his 2011 Sports Prediction’s, ” be the Padres of 2011 because of their far improved offense, and stable of young fireballers”.

      That’s what happens when you write a blog at 2AM on New Year’s Eve. When I wrote about the 20,000 who turned up, I meant to include the Comeback and the title. Besides the coaching staff, the players and their families there was no one more excited then me about the title. My error –no excuse–will be corrected ASAP. How is Caitlyn doing? It is going to be tough watching this year without my favorite player there.
