So, now that the Orioles bring in a new fiery manager, they seem to be on their way back to becoming a prominent team again. Though it may not seem that they are all that great by record, they have a 6-4 record through their last 10 games, with the last two losses coming via 1-2 run shortcomings, not too bad considering how they lost like this to the Rays. Now we can analyze the blessings that may ensue from this new management as it relates to our beloved Red Sox.

Baltimore faces the Rays a total of six times in the month of September, and we can only hope they get the better of each of those contests. The Yankees also come to Baltimore three times and the O's travel to NY three times in that month as well. Guess they are useful for something after all! Just kidding.

If the man in the picture above can heat up and our pitching can improve, we may be able to send Tampa Bay home crying the blues on the way to the wild card. Everyone that enjoyed my analysis and loves our Bean-Town Bo-Sox say LET'S GO O'S! Ha ha. Go Red Sox!
