Cheering for the Yankees and Red Sox at the same time. "It is hard to hate the Orioles. The team is going through its 7th straight losing season, three fifths of the starting rotation would be in AA in any other franchise, and the top hitters like Palmeiro, Tejada, and Mora are all fairly likeable. But the fact that their owner is trying to force me to drive three hours in Beltway and I-95 traffic in order to see a live major league game makes me enjoy every one of their losses. I now find myself happy when either the Yankees or Red Sox win, because I want to see Angelos' losing streak continue." (Senators and Sabermetrics)
Time to look towards future is now. "I will admit, the Royals still have a chance to come back. But to be completely honest, I wouldn't bet Carlos Beltran on it. If the deal that we could get in return for Beltran is better then the compensation picks that we would get for Beltran if he was to sign with another club, I would trade him away in a heartbeat."
