Three of four from the Yankees in New York, just as we all predicted, right?
How many games will the O's win in NY this weekend?

Hey, the Birds only won TWO games in Yankee Stadium all of 2017, and they got dominated most every time they played there. Throw in that dismal 1-5 start – that is now comfortably in the rearview – and you can forgive Birdland for its collective pessimism.
Now that we’re all feeling a bit better about things, let’s hit some links.
“I told Buck I had nine years in the minor leagues, so I had nine years off. I’ll pitch every day the rest of the year. I really don’t care. As long as I’m in the big leagues, I’m available.” – Richard Bleier, new O’s fan favorite.
Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun has some sobering news for the Birds: they are seeing fewer fastballs than ever, and it’s just going to get worse. Here’s to a quick adjustment.
Towson University Towerlight Senior Editor Jordan Cope ranks the five O’s minor league teams’ stadiums. I have to admit that I’ve been to pathetically few of these. Delmarva just jumped up my to-do list though, and since I have a one-year old whose grandparents live in Salisbury, that should get taken care of here relatively soon. What do you think of these rankings?
Someone at FanGraphs forgot to change the heading of a table, but as you’ll see, this article is indeed about O’s prospects, and not Red Sox prospects.
That sound you hear is the tiniest violin imaginable.
Look at Ryan Flaherty's NL line.
Look at Stanton's AL line.
Then tell me my "NL is MiLB" theory is nonsense 😂

It’s a real shame, I tell ya.
