The Yankees pounded the Orioles today but we still get the series and still lead 7-5 for the season. Sarfate showed some potential as a starter, but couldn't put it all together. Thank you Giraldi for helping me hate the Yankees even more.

I got back from the game an hour ago. I would love to have a sweep, but I am THRILLED that we hung on for last night's win to take the series. I was sooooooo nervous at last night's game, until Sherrill recorded the final out. At least our modest three-game winning streak gave us a mini-vacation from Ghost Oriole. I'm sure he'll be back again, happy as ever.

The overall run total for all three games was 23 runs for each team, but we took two out of three games (hurray). In addition to being 7-5 against The Yanks, we are 5-7 against the defending World Champion Red Sox. One thing is for sure, these Birds don't lay down for ANYONE. I can't ask any more than that. You put on the uniform that you are issued, and you give 100 percent. For better or for worse, it's OUR team. GO ORIOLES!

I knew they were going to lose today before the game even started.!One you can't take a BP and give him the start when he is having problems throwing strikes and as for Brian Burres he belongs at Bowie ....not Norfolk. The right move would have been Hayden Penn.

Brian Burres is terrible. He can't pitch as a starter. He can't pitch from the bullpen. Why is he still in the majors? If I suck as much as he does at my job, I would be on the street corner begging for spare change.

I saw Jon Leicester at AAA Norfolk last month, when they played at the Durham Bulls. He's a very nice fellow. Anyone know if there is any chance that he'll be called up?

Which is why it is a damn good thing we held on for the win the night before! I was at all three games, and it was bad enough that I heard the Yank fans telling us to hit the road after today's game. At least we took two of three. If the Yanks had pulled out the win the night before, we would never have heard the end of it. Their fans think highly of themselves and their team as it is. We don't need a crushing defeat (which is what it would have been had we blown the 7-3 lead in the ninth inning) thrown in our faces.

Never mind about Leicester. I just looked it up, and he has a 5.84 ERA at Norfolk. One positive is his strikeout to walk ratio (he has 72 K's and 35 walks). If nothing else, perhaps he can give Daniel Cabrera some lessons on throwing more strikes.

Typical New York attitude, she's a loudmouth. I grew up in Baltimore but live for months at a time in Manhattan and Brooklyn because of my job. Her heart may be in the right place but she's starved for attention in real life. Start a blog, already.

Funny word from Millar saying Edwar Ramirez is good hitting considering that Millar has struck out 3 times in 4 at bats against Ramirez. I guess all that bad hair dye and peroxide rots the brain.
