As I don't like either team, I have very little interest in this series. I might end up watching a bit if there's nothing else on ...

At least my Orioles are following the tradition: Losers

I can proudly state that I wasn't present for the aberration in the win column...

Tough division, but expect the mighty O's to continue to buck their more recent history of verliezing and actually be competitive for most of the season. IMO Red Sux overachieved last year and Jankers have a lot of question marks.

There was a formatting problem with that table. Here I will fix it.

NY Yankees 28 24 .538 3 11-11 17-13 224 231 -7 Won 1 5-5 31.3

Nice to see for a change. Only positive run differential in the AL East. If Reyes hadn't booted that play it could have been ten straight.

O's were leading the division not so long ago. Bad streak going lately, though. Jankers suck.

They are probably legitimately the best team in the division this year, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

...if they can only get healthy. I got back from my big kayaking trip to find them three games back.

Ideally they can keep it close until Encarnasion, Lawrie and Lind back. Morrow would be nice to see in the lineup, but unlikely.

I think they are too well-balanced this year to carry out the recent trend of O's collapses, but you never know....

They have a better record than all the teams in baseball except the LA Angels and Oakland A's, and their record is essentially the same as Oakland's.

I've even searched the cable listings a few times recently to see if I can catch their games being broadcast. (or should that be )

9 games up. That's the biggest division lead in the league. They'll lose to a wild card team in the playoffs.

Before the Jays some investors in Toronto tried to buy the Giants. Bid fell through. Otherwise they might be Giants.
