I mean I guess the 20,000 fans who paid to see the games must have been happy to see the birds win both games. But it is one team that played well to avoid 100 losses playing a team that has to run the table to finish about .500.
One lousy team versus an underachiever who has as much chance to play a meaningful game this October as the Seattle Pilots.
I think the baseball world could have still turned if they just played one game and each team finished the season with 161 games.
Now I didn't watch the games (No, I wasn't going to spend my Friday night watching TWO Tigers/Orioles games!) but were there really 20,000 people there?
20,000 people showed up to watch these two teams. I know that isn't a great crowd, but this wasn't a great match up.
Baltimore is a sleeping giant, folks. If 20,000 fans could show up to see this lemon of a match up... then there might very well be a rabid fan base just waiting for a winner.
Do your job, Buck Showalter. You could become a Baltimore God.
