The Orioles have not only won six straight games to move back into first place in the AL East, but they also currently own the best record in baseball. Only two other times have the Birds won at least 22 of their first 32 games – 1970 and 1997.

They won a game in which Max Scherzer was starting against Ubaldo Jimenez, a game in which they trailed 4-1 going into the bottom of the eighth inning, and in which they still trailed 4-2 with two outs in the ninth.

Magic is in the air, Birdland.

Will Pedro Alvarez Rejoin the Orioles?

Zach Spedden of Baltimore Sports and Life reminds us that El Toro can opt out of his minor-league deal this month. He’s switched to OF (or tried), but in case you haven’t noticed, the Birds have a LOT of outfielders already.

Adam Jones is Playing Deeper, but is it Helping?

This, from Patrick Dougherty of Camden Depot, is more about the process of moving Jones and the conversations he had (or didn’t have) with the front office about the move than it is about on-field results.
