I know it’s been forever since the O’s have been talked about in terms of post season baseball and I understand the frustration and cynicism of some of our listeners. However, can we please enjoy the season so far?
Moreover, baseball reference.com did an analysis giving the O’s a 75% chance of a wildcard berth. That was done by looking over past years and comparing it to where the Orioles are now . It’s even better than that if you think about it because there is an additional wild card slot this season. Soooo, for all you haters out there now may be the perfect storm in the AL East. Baltimore has the best record in the American League, the Yankees and Red Sox are struggling badly and there is an extra wild card slot to be had.
I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m not doubting them any longer.
