Is it Bill Murrays "Groundhogs Day"? Seeing as I had the same headline on a blog a week ago. No it is not. A different team is in the playoffs. I do not know how or why but that team is no other than.
The Baltimore Orioles.
There are two type of baseball teams I love.
One a team that developed talent brought them up through the minors. You hear about them on the teams telecasts and you may see them in a minor league uniform. I love saying "oh yea I saw so and so in Hagerstown". That is so awesome to say that.
But my second favorite type of team?
Is that team that has a roster of "misfits" and have been put out to pasture. Like Nate McClouth he was cut from the PITTSBURGH PIRATES could not hit the broad side of the barn. Signs a minor league deal with the Orioles does good to decent down there then was called up. And has THRIVED on this team. Jim Thome same type of story. Not quite McClouth but close. And look at this lineup up and down I say ok I will take Adam Jones the rest I would have to balk on. But they are getting the job done hon (yes I said that in my Baltimore accent as I typed that).
The pitching staff?! on paper is very laughable as well but they alot like that lineup just get the job done and keep on ticking like a well oiled machine. The bullpen has more than done there job. Winning the extra inning games that they do and the one run games they do. If i could give a Cy Young award out it is to that whole bullpen (although I know it only goes to one person and I do not get a vote so do not worry.).
But it is time to BUCKle Up! Beause guess what folks the Orioles are.
