    Wake up call to Drew:

    The Orioles are not your ex-girlfriend. You are not a jilted ex-lover who got dumped unfairly.

    The Orioles are an organization that will wax and wane with the people who are hired to be put in charge. Like every other company in existence, there will be problems and issues that need attention. Not everything will be perfect for you. There are days when the DMV line isn’t so long. There are days when your waiter has a smile on his face. There are days when the Orioles will field a quality ballclub. Right now, it’s not your day.

    There are teams playing today with fans that have had it much worse than you have in past years. Phillies, Mets, Cubs, Red Sox have storied losing histories. The Mariners, Brewers, Padres, and Rockies have not won as many games as the Orioles have. Remember the 2003 Tigers? I’m sure they all have fans like you out there. But you need to just let it go, enjoy baseball, and wait for your day.

    How does that sound?

    That was actually supposed to go into the Spring Notes 6 thread… but who knows, someone will read it now I suppose.

    I have felt that all of this anti-Orioles/yankee envy is completely obscene. How can you compare a team with a 20x larger market, 2x longer history, and 3x larger payroll to the Orioles? That’s completely unfair. If I can recall correctly, there have been a couple years where the Orioles were the envy of most Yankee fans.
