Here we are almost at Mother's Day. Who is on top of the AL East? The Red Sox? The Yankees? The Rays? The Blue Jays?
It's the Baltimore Orioles. at 21-12, only the Rangers are better in the American League. And they can expand their lead with another win against the Rays.
The Magic Number is 129 to eliminate the Rays. Any combination of Orioles wins and Tampa Bay losses equaling 129 will give the Orioles the crown.
128 would eliminate the Yankees and 127 would put away the Blue Jays?
The Red Sox? Don't worry about them, Baltimore. They are doing it themselves.
So let's see some more butts in the seats, Orioles fans!
And smile like those smiling bird hats.
(I told you changing back to the old school hats was a good idea!)
