For Orioles, distance to Yankees not too far

August 04, 2006|By PETER SCHMUCK

The New York Yankees arrive at Camden Yards for the opener of a three-game series tonight and, quite frankly, the whole exercise has become tiresome.

The Yankees are the yardstick by which the Orioles measure pain. They show up in town three times a year and remind everyone what Oriole Park feels like when it's full, except that it's full of obnoxious Yankees fans who bought up all the prime seats on eBay and think they own the ballpark.
