The Kickoff

On the Orioles

The Orioles really haven't been outplayed through 12 [games], and almost no one in the offense has hit his stride. The starting pitching has been good or better. There are too many base runners, which can eventually come back to get you, but they've survived pretty well. The bullpen has generally looked good.

Once the Orioles get Ramon Hernandez and Jay Payton back, that will be a good thing. This is a different team than in the past few years.

It's always nice to watch them win, but these victories don't hold as much weight as a win against Minnesota would have.
