The Baltimore Orioles

Clearly the best team in baseball. They haven't given up a single run this year. Nope, not one. At this rate, they won't give up a single run all year and they'll never lose a game.

Too bad there are 188ish games in a season, and that was just the first one... Too bad for the As too, the will have to be embaressed another 180ish times.

188? Not for Baltimore. They'll be lucky to even get to the regular 162.

I thought baseball's primary purpose was to give people somewhere to go and get drunk in public outside, when the weather was nice. That's all I've ever seen really going on when I've gone to a game.

My initial scientific analysis seems to have been off a bit. It now appears the Baltimore Orioles will win exactly half of their games. Unless, of course, the first game was an aberration, in which case they will never score another run and never win another game.

Oreo is a cookie and derrogatory (sp?)slang for black on the outside...white on the inside

And when baseball was desegregated, black players joined white players forming Oreo teams. The Orioles took advantage of that.

And now my joke is ruined.

Looks like my second prediction was right on the money, with the exception that they did score another run. Presumably it was unearned and the result of pity on the part of the opposition players.

Discerning a pattern has been quite frustrating. It no longer appears safe to say that the Baltmiore Orioles will either win or lose all the rest of their games, because sometimes they win and sometimes they lose. They did manage, however, to win two out of three games from the evil New York Yankees over the weekend. And since many, if not most people picked the Yankees to be the best team in baseball this year, one can fairly surmise that the Baltimore Orioles must now be the best team instead -- perhaps even twice as good.

This is wonderful news for Brooks Robinson fans.
