The Weekend That Was, All Star Game and Stuffage

What does the current four game win streak mean for the Orioles? I don't know if much right now. The Orioles could easily fall back into their bad habits, but...

Well, at least they are starting to show signs of life and over the weekend they did the little things to sweep the Nationals. In addition, the Orioles got some nice performances from their bullpen especially Jason Berken (who might merit some All-Star consideration, but middle/long relievers are often overlooked), Mark Hendrickson, David Hernandez and Alfredo Simon.

I'm going to go off the beaten path and say that the Nationals helped out the Orioles big-time by giving away three games which they had the lead; however, at this point, who cares how they did it, it matters that they stopped the losing temporarily.

Well, I am not going to say the win streak means much right now considering the Orioles are firmly entrenched in last place in the American League East. The bats - thankfully - are starting come alive, and Adam Jones's average has snuck above .270, Wieters is hitting - finally, Miggy's average is now .287 and Scott Moore has come through with clutch hits at the right time.
