    Hammel ailing. Uh-oh. Time for Britton to get healthy.

    yeah, unfortunately it looks like this was the week the O's came crashing back down to earth.

    Two blowout losses in a row, ace is now hurt and out indefinitely, and the clown we sent down a few days ago (Tommy Hunter) is coming back up to throw to Texas tonight.

    It's starting to smell like a 4-game sweep; ugly.

    Opening the game with back to back to back jacks helps.

    Taking the wife for Mother's Day today. 7 Os on the DL who were projected to be on the 25-man roster, not counting Roberts, and still they are winning. I wonder why Paulino got sent down?

    Exciting game for a loss. These Os don't quit, although Arrieta is becoming worrisome. Bring on the Yanks!

    Good test for the Nats and the O's tonight. We will defend our home ballpark!

    I'm starting to allow belief to creep in.

    Great game so far (extra innings)!

    Seems like they are all extra innings. The bullpen has been amazing. Wieters is slumping but Hardy and Markakis are picking it up. SIGN ADAM JONES NOW!!!!!!!

    O's apparently now own the Nats.
    (When did Adam Jones become the next Willie Mays?)
    Hopefully the Z-Burger can get it dun tomorrow. . .

    :foo:

    The Cinderella season continues but the Yanks are not cooperating!

    Okay, we're at the mid-point of the seaon. lets see how my predictions are holding up:
    Markakis free from injury: :cry:
    Matusz sub-4.00 ERA::eek:
    Weiters hits .275, 25 HRs, 80 RBIs: currently projects to .247, 22 HRs, 80 RBIs, not bad.
    Jones hits .290, 30 HRs, 100 RBIS: currently projects to .297, 40, and 88, not bad.
    Hopefully, I'm wrong about the sub .500 record as well.
