Do you care what the Orioles do against the Red Sox this week?
The Orioles are back home for three games before their 14th consecutive losing season mercifully ends.
I know a lot of you have moved on to football by now.
(By the way, we re-start Prediction Friday and our first winner is the guy who often dominated last year, Barry. The Ravens crushed the St. Louis Rams, 37-7. Barry had them winning 38-17. That’s the closest of our predictions. He also said Joe Flacco would have three TDs -- though he didn’t have Torrey Smith breaking out. But he was close enough to get the open bar tab of the week. Congrats, Barry. Same as it ever was).
Today, I am wondering whether the Orioles’ recent run as a spoiler has piqued your interest. Really, I want to know if you’re going to pay attention this week – even though the Orioles have been done for months – because they can help stop the hated Boston Red Sox from winning the Wild Card.
Orioles players and manager Buck Showalter have been downplaying the spoiler aspect for a while now. But on Sunday, Showalter rested almost his entire starting lineup on a day game after a night game. Maybe that’s the reason. But I don’t think it is coincidence that the Orioles’ best players will be a little more rested versus Boston.
I want to know if you care what the Orioles do against the Red Sox over the next three days. Or can you no longer muster any interest?
