To be honest, this is the most interested I've been for current baseball events in a good while.
See, I've been a fan of the Baltimore Orioles since the mid-1990s, and of the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals since ~2000. And if you know anything about those teams, they've been bad for a while now due to varying reasons.
I'd love to see the Orioles take the AL East rather than one of the two wildcard spots, but it'll be nice just to see them in a post-season game again.
... and the Yankee's just lost 5-4 to the A's, and since the Orioles also lost (2-1 to the Red Hose) we keep pace. Yay! Sort of...
Hey, I take victories where I can. It's been a long time.
