A team that's a little lost to history is the 1929-30 Philadelphia A's. You think of the 1920s and 1930s as part of a long string of Yankee dominance. But those A's teams won consecutive pennants, beating out the Ruth/Gehrig Yanks by 18 and 16 games, respectively. They took a dynasty with two of the inner-circlest of inner circle HOFers to the woodshed.
And four of the key players on those A's teams were Orioles. Second baseman Max Bishop was from an extinct class of players, the kind who'd hit .260 with 20 doubles, eight homers, and 125 walks. He was a local kid, going to both high school and college in Baltimore. Connie Mack bought him from Jack Dunn in '24. The shortstop was Joe Boley, who played in Baltimore from 1919-26 and hit over .300 almost every year with 30+ doubles, double-digit triples.
Of course on the mound was Lefty Grove, who still has a halfway decent argument for being the best left-hander or even the best pitcher of all time. Grove was from Lonaconing, MD, just down from Frostburg. And finally George Earnshaw, mentioned a few posts above for going 29-11 in 1925. Mack pried him loose from the O's in mid-season 1928, and in his first full year in the majors at age 29 he went 24-8, leading the AL in wins.
Yes,I have seen wide ranges from 38,000 to 2.1 million
I guess IHME is around 93,000 into August But still data based on how the virus will perform and people will act.
Hopefully we get the real low end and does not come back in the fall
