The Baltimore Orioles, the absolute worst team in baseball, really stink. They have a .315 record, which means they've lost so many more games than they've won this year. 29 games won, 63 games lost. Pathetic.
They played the Tampa Bay Rays last night. It went to 10-10 into the thirteen inning, with the Orioles finally winning it very nicely on an RBI from Julio Lugo. (Remember him? Uneven shortstop kicked out by everyone including the Red Sox.)
Anyway, it helps that I'm happy to see Tampa Bay lose, especially on a night when the Yankees and Red Sox lost. But you don't need to care about the standings to enjoy a victory like the Orioles had last night. Whoo hoo! Thirty wins! And it's not even August yet!
Meanwhile, Carl Crawford left the game with a "testicular contusion." Reminds me of a story about my freshman boyfriend in college. After a lovely evening early in our dating relationship, we said goodnight and parted until breakfast. He never showed up the next morning and his roommate told me he ended up in the infirmary late that night with a malady we will not discuss further here. Ouch. Never mind. Back to baseball. Play ball!
