The Baltimore Orioles, like the rest of society it seems, are nestling into a nice quiet spot as we move into Christmas week. So the question is whether or not there’s anything of note to report on a team, who’s primary season is summer, on the day before Christmas Eve. And the answer for the most part is a resounding NO.
This week may be the nadir of the year in terms of news about any Major League Baseball team. Just as is the case in most of your offices I presume, most of the front office staff is off until after the new year. That isn’t to say that news can’t break, because that could always happen. I just wouldn’t bet on it.
As we creep towards New Year’s Eve we’ll be taking a look back at some of the key moments on the field for the Birds this decade. After all, this isn’t just any New Year’s Eve coming up. It’s the end of one decade and the beginning of another!
