My son tells me that I'm too negative. I continue to write off the Orioles. When they lose two in a row or score just a handful of runs in a series I shake my head, figure the fun run is over and mutter "Nothing has changed".
Then they come back and win 5 in a row and creep back to a place from where they can actually spot a wild card slot berth, maybe even the top of the division. They go into today's game looking to sweep the Indians (on the road no less) and win their sixth straight.
Oh, here is the Bird that whispered to me "Don't lose hope!". Three incarnations of him.
