First, some good news.
The Baltimore Orioles won last night, defeating the Cleveland Indians 3-1.
There you go.
I don’t have any more good news, so if you want to stop reading now, I totally understand.
O’s left-fielder Trey Mancini slid knee-first into a brick wall in the eighth. You don’t need to be a stat-wonky baseball fan to understand the bad-newsedness that comes when bone hits brick.
You can watch it – over and over, from multiple angles, and in slow motion – here. As Jim Palmer says, “Oh, this is not good.”
That Orioles win last night, the first in more than a week, brings the O’s record to 6-14.
The Orioles are in last place in the AL East, 11-1/2 games back of another team whose name escapes me at the moment … um …
… I dunno.
Whatever. Another team. Good for them.
