All the wrong teams won tonight. Meaning the Yankees beat the Orioles.

With that White Sox loss, Tigers @ Angels just became a much bigger deal.

The O's did a good job putting a scare into the Yanks after falling behind 7.

I'm almost positive that Soriano is intentionally pitching worse in non-save situations this year.

I knew I shouldn't have gone to the game. Good night for the Yanks.

You going tomorrow or Sunday?

You going tomorrow or Sunday?
And if not, can I buy you tickets?

The only way the Tigers are winning that division is by beating the White Sox head-to-head. They sure as hell can't beat anybody else. (Seven straight one-run losses, guys? Really?)

You going tomorrow or Sunday?

No, thank goodness. I played football at (then Div I) University of Richmond, and the home opener is Saturday at six. Luckily for the O's, I live 3 hours away so am spending the night with friends, so I am missing both games.

I do have a ticket for next Wednesday's game against Tampa, and was planning on going Tuesday night, too - but if perchance the O's win both Saturday and Sunday, I won't go to either, as I dropped to 1-6 for the season with last night's loss, and attended the only losses of the last homestand and this one, too (Albeit only 2 games so far!)

And if not, can I buy you tickets?

Sorry, RB. It was great to see The Yard full of folks with only about 20% Yankee gear for a change. There was good 'give and take' between the two factions, I thought. That part was fun, even with the 7-0 deficit.

Small sample size.

Yankees fans can blame me for tonight and tomorrow's losses -- the Yankees seem to play poorly when I'm covering their games.

Larry, can I buy you tickets for the U of Richmond home opener?

The Yankees do fine when I go as a fan. It's when I have to watch every single pitch, because that's my job, that they play particularly badly.

They're obviously nervous, knowing that your gaze is upon them, Larry.

(Re-enters Orioles pessimism mode)
   14. Best Regards, President of Comfort, Esq. Posted: September 08, 2012 at 01:03 PM (#4230210)
Don't worry, Gamingboy. When the Orioles win tonight, everyone in New York can get on the ledge again, and everyone in Baltimore can step off the ledge. Then after Sunday, they can switch places again.

Normally that problem is solved with a court order mandating Larry stay 100 yards away at all times.

That's gotten a lot easier since the release of the "Larry Mahnken Restraining Order Mad Libs" in paperback.
