Orioles win; Yankees lose

It's the six games that the Orioles/Royals play in August that will be a key factor in deciding who gets the 2020 #1 draft pick. No need to to get upset in the first week of June. :)  

Plus who knows how many players Elias will trade away by August. Easy peasy. 

Miami could still overtake us both!

 

And let's face it, 1-1 is the best, but 1-2 or 1-3 is still pretty darn good! We could still have gotten Bobby Witt Jr. or whoever this year.

The Red Sox are 7 games out now, and looking feisty. Up 3-1 over the Rays in the sixth inning.

That team that the Red Sox are playing against is doing pretty good in the division, also.

They beat the Red Sox in the first 2 games of the current series that they are playing, last night and earlier this afternoon. 

They are in 1st place, half a game ahead of the Yankees.

The Rays just took 3 out of 4 games from the Red Sox. They are tied with the Yankees for 1st place.

Overall they have won 5 out of their last 6, 11 out of their last 16, and 13 out of their last 19.

Nice to see the Rays rebound after they fell out of first place.

Orioles win.

Yankees split.

I almost was going to post that all the teams in the AL East lost but the O's today.  But then I remembered the Yankees had a doubleheader today.

(JULY 6th)

 

Orioles win.

Yankees lose.

 

162 games per year ........ even the worst team in baseball will have 10-15 times or so in which they win and the best team in the leagues loses on the same day.

Even with today's loss, the Yankees have won 16 of the last 19, so there have been very few opportunities to keep this thread going.   Not sure we need to after all this time.

Yeah this seems like the most useless thread at this point.  We now are only 30 1/2 games behind them.  We should focus on celebrating our wins.  Unless we are playing the Yankees it has zero effect on us if they lose when we win.  And it makes us look pathetic by celebrating it.

Some of us have a different perspective. Sorry about that.

For me, this venerable thread recognizes those occasions when, on the same day, two nice things happen in the baseball world. I realize those two nice things are independent of each other. Nonetheless I enjoy seeing those occasions noted.

I don’t see it being nice.  At the end of the day they are still the best team in the American League and we are still the worst team in baseball.  It makes zero sense.  Baseball is long season and every team will loses a lot of games. Why don’t you go one the Yankees board and brag about how the Orioles won and the Yankees lost I am sure it would give Yankees fans a good chuckle.

Not a life and death issue, but I do not understand ANY Oriole fan not being at least a bit happier  on days that the NYY lose and the Baltimore Orioles win.  The two teams place in the AL Standings does not detract for one minute the joy I feel when those two happenings come together on the same day.  Regardless of the circumstances,  when this happens , a not so good day up to that point becomes just a bit better, or a  good day,  becomes a very good day.

Something that gives me, and apparently others, some pleasure doesn't give you any and makes no sense to you.That's the way it goes sometimes.

I hate to agree with Atomic but when the O's are 30 games back before the break I don't care what the Yankees do when the Orioles aren't playing them.  I mean at some background static level of consciousness I'd prefer for them to lose but I'm not checking the boxscores and fist-pumping when it happens.
