Can the Orioles go 47-7 the rest of the way?

The Orioles only have 54 more games... and all season they have been staring at a 100 loss season or worse. For a while it looked like they were going to be one of the worst teams in the franchise history, dating back to their days as the St. Louis Browns.

But a strange thing has happened to the Orioles since Buck Showalter took over:

They are winning.
Granted it is only 3 games... but the lowly Orioles seem like they just eliminated the three time defending division champion Angels tonight.

And maybe Buck Showalter has scared them into relevance.
The Orioles have put a winning product on the field since losing the 1997 ALCS to the Indians.

Well what if THESE Orioles went 47-7 the rest of the way?
They'd finish 82-80 and join the rest of their division as a winning team.

Far fetched? Sure.
But so far Showalter has them on that pace.
