    My eyes are deceiving me.

    I have not been around in a long time because I am a terrible poster. I just wanted to come back and say that I am looking at the standings, the O's are almost 8 games up. They are running away with the division. How did this happen? What is going on?

    I have no idea. This seems like a dream.

    Simple...
    Pitching, defense and three-run home runs!

    You are not a terrible poster. You have irritated me and I have irritated you. No problems. Welcome back.
    As for the O's they are playing good ball. I don't know what's
    happened but I am sure enjoying the season.

    That about sums it up. They were barely above .500 until the rotation started to gel in July.

    Steve Pearce looks like he could run through a brick wall after that. And he would for this team.

    Steve is like an enforcer. I would not want to tangle with this wolverine-man.

    This is beyond belief. This is the year the Orioles win the World Series. I will be outside flipping over cars when they do.

    I saw Buck in the dugout after the last Yankee game with a calm, happy demeanor, like he himself couldn't even believe what is happening.

    He is definitely one of our character guys. A better version of Jonny Gomes.

    We have just one more hurdle and we're on our way. We have a 7 1/2 game lead which matches the exact same highest lead we had in the "Why Not" year before Toronto ran us down and beat us by two games. So once we clear this next hurdle and make it to an 8 game lead and eliminate the jinx, it will be all down hill!
