Now don’t get me wrong, I know the Baltimore Orioles have been a pretty lousy franchise over the past 14 years, but sometimes luck seeps its way in as well. That luck is almost always bad. Case in point last night. The Orioles traded Derrek Lee to the Pittsburgh Pirates for a minor league first baseman. In his first game with Pittsburgh, he hits two home runs. The guy didn’t have a single multi-home run game with the O’s. Granted, the Pirates still lost and they seem to be fading. That said, I’d like to see more monster games from guys wearing Orange and Black!
