Hello darkness my old friend

It’s been a sad a slow fall for our beloved birds.

On June 28, the Orioles were tied for first place in the AL East with a 41-34 record. They had won four straight games and seven of their last ten after sweeping a double header at home against the Indians.

Those were the days.
