I blogged last week about the Orioles being able to play spoilers. I never imagined it could be this good. Tuesday night the orioles have the chance to beat my least favorite team, with my least favorite pitcher on the mound. With Monday nights win against the Red Sox and the Rays beating the Yankees, the wild card race is all tied up with 2 games left for each team. The Orioles will face Eric Bedard, my absolute least favorite person in sports, with the opportunity of knocking them out of the playoffs. Even if the Orioles lose the next 2 games, if the Rays hold serve at home there will be a 1 game playoff and the Red Sox will be pitching their 3 best pitchers in this series. If the Orioles happen to sweep the Red Sox they will get to 70 wins. Not the type of meaningful games in September i was looking for, but this will have to do.
