Facing the Evil Empire...

Folks, we face the Yankees up in the Bronx tonight, Wednesday and Thursday. Honestly, who would have thought before the season that on May 20th, the Orioles would be at 23-20, while the Evil Empire would be at the bottom of the American League standings?

The Orioles had a nice little homestand, winning four out of five; meanwhile, the Yankees had their hands full with the Mets, as they were swept in two straight games.

We here in the mid-Atlantic region are giddy; the New Yorkers up there are wondering what in the world is going on?

Like I said yesterday, the next two weeks will tell a lot about the Orioles. Baltimore has been winning by excellent starting pitching, timely hitting and a "us-against-the-world" mentality. The Yankees have suffered through injuries, aging talent and lackluster pitching -- especially, on part of ther youngsters.

There was a time where the Orioles would serve as a doormat for the Yankees -- however, this series might be a test for both teams. The Bronx may be an intimidating place to play, but right now the pendulum is swinging in Baltimore's way.

Can it continue?
