I too am old enough to remember the very best of days of Oriole baseball, but this season is fast approaching some of those seasons. This team seemingly rises to the occasion every time they are challenged. They have just come off one of the most grueling stretches I can ever remember. Two West coast trips, then another trip out to Houston, then to Cleveland where the Guardians and Francona, played like it was a play off series, yet a dog tired, Oriole team got back off the deck on the shoulders of their two most veteran starters and got two extremely important games at the end of a 17 game stretch of games without a day off. Hyde called the stretch unfair and he is right, but the club answered one more time.
The Orioles are very likely going to win the division, and that is something even their architect did not think it was possible. What a season!!!!
It would be a great story if this team wins the Series, but this has been an overwhelming success.
