Not liking this road trip, not liking it at all

Throw the playoff tickets in the trash now. :rolleyestf:

I love the 180-degree turn that the franchise has done in such a short time.

Only 2 years ago, the facetious line (in general) was, "Hey, we won a few games. Print the playoff tickets."

Now, it's "Hey, we lost a few games. Throw the playoff tickets in the trash."

I hope you saw my mockery in that remark. I think people are over reacting a bit.

A Scott-Friendly road trip (due to his work schedule.)

And a rare perk for West Coast and Mountain Standard Time zone Oriole fans. :cool:

Just a knee jerk reaction.

I know. They are/were both knee-jerk reactions.

What I'm saying is that I like the complete change in the sentiments of both. We've completely reversed positions in the last 2 years. Now we're a contender with skeptics, instead of a doormat with taunters.

Definitely time to step up! 6 games back isn't nice, but still doable. So, how becomes the question.

1) Get Markakis out of the third spot Put Davis there. Put Markakis either at leadoff, or the fifth spot.

2) Get Wieters out of the 5 spot

3) Don't get cute with the starters by trying to get an extra inning out of 'em. Playing in NL parks means double switches (whatever the hell that is, I still can't explain it to others) so use the bench plenty.

There are no exuses anymore. Just do it!
