Welcome to my sports blog. This is the first of many blogs that will be available for you to read. Thanks so much for stopping by!
The Baltimore Orioles have had a rough decade of baseball finishing last in the division for several years and failing to have a .500 record for over a decade. Could this be the year it changes?
10 games into the season, the O’s are atop the AL East with a 6-4 record and won convincingly tonight in Chicago posting 6 runs in the top of the 10th after two home-runs in the 9th to tie it up. Yes, this is the same O’s team who got whooped last week at home by the Yankees. And now the O’s faithful ask, is this the year our luck changes?
Their starting pitchers look great and so far, the bull-pin has done a good job in controlling games and keeping things close (with the exception of Kevin Gregg, who I don’t like at all). The bats have certainly come alive as well. 10 games into the season, the O’s are in the top five of HR’s (14) and slugging percentage (.458) led my Matt Weiters and Adam Jones who are just playing phenomenal baseball. It’s hard not to get excited if you are an O’s fan.
It’s exciting to see a good start and I only hope I can continue to write good things. I’ll also be sharing quotes and opinions from my fellow amateur sports expert K-Close (@Closer_than_You).
