    Davis went 0 for 8 with 5 strikeouts but pitches 2 scoreless innings for the win

    That was really, REALLY cool. They are pumped about baseball here in Baltimore for the first time in a LONG LONG time.

    That pitch Davis threw to Adrian Gonzalez to get the strikeout was an above average pitch.

    And Axford doesn't even get in the game. Why have these guys if you won't use them? Oh, but they are saving him for a save situation. THAT IS THE DUMBEST THING IN THE GAME TODAY! Are you trying to win the game or get a guy his numbers?

    I think they have the hitting to compete, the question is if their pitchers will hold up when the Red Sox and Yankees hitters heat up.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Now the Cubbies and Dodgers are in the 11th inning. Darwin Barney is on second with no outs in the bottom of the inning. Welington Castillo was then intentionally walked. Jeff Samardzija is pinch hitting for Baker to bunt the runners over.

    The pitcher hits Samardzija and the bases are loaded with no out. There is still a chance that the Cubbies find a way to lose.

    See. Dusty's not the only manager who does this.

    I love that the Orioles are playing with such passion and enthusiasm this year. The Baltimore fans deserve this after so many years of struggling and I hope they can have a great overall season. Go O's!!

    I have been here for 3 years now. Interest in the Orioles from what was once a baseball town had been completely dead. I think the goal from the die-hards I know is to see if they can get to 82-80 first. Every game now gets them closer to that goal. It has been 14 seasons since they finished over .500. Competing for the playoffs would be nice for everyone here, but...baby steps.

    In any event, even though just 28 games in, I am glad for people here that the O's have the best record in baseball. It might be fleeting, but they haven't had much of anything to be happy about for a long time.

    Actually most managers will do so, unless they are going to pitch the closer two innings.

    Since your team will need to score anyway to win, the theory is to save your closer to pitch the last inning after you will score. If the Brewers had pitched Axford and he pitched a scoreless inning, they still would have had to bring in Dillard for the save and lost it anyway.

    Now, if you will pitch Axford two inings, he should be brought in to pitch right away.

    I feel for the Baltimore fans. No way they'll keep this up but I hope they go over .500 and make strides toward returning to form. Having the Reds and the Orioles in the thick of things feels so natural to me but I know I am spoiled by when I came of age.
