Many fans have lost hope as the Orioles have posted a dismal record over the past 14 seasons. Now the team is starting its new season by testing the faith of some of them as well. Friday is Opening Day for the Baltimore Orioles, as well as for 17 other major league teams. It is also Good Friday, the most solemn day in Christianity, and the first day of Judaism's Passover - a confluence of events that is giving some baseball buffs theological pause. "I called and told them I won't be there," said the Rev. John Bauer, a fan who is also the team's chaplain.

It's early fall in Baltimore, that time of year when purple banners, car flags and sweatshirts normally dominate the landscape, as surely as the colors are soon to hit the trees. But Charm City isn't just NFL country now. In grade schools and taverns, at water coolers and along busy streets, Baltimoreans are sporting Orioles orange and black, following out-of-town scores and relishing every Adam Jones line drive, Mark Reynolds bomb or Jim Johnson strikeout. The O's are in a pennant race, the franchise's first since 1997, and a baseball town wounded by years of losing is buying in. "We were wandering out there in the desert for so long, but look at all the orange here now," said Christina Barth of Mount Airy as she sat in the Camden Yards flag court before Tuesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

So it's way past midnight and I still haven't packed for my 7:30 a.m. flight to Tampa Bay. Heck, I can sleep in the offseason. The Orioles sealed their first postseason bid in 15 years tonight, capping a bizarre and surreal day, one that most long-suffering O's fans will remember for years. The image that will last in my mind is one of the Orioles players giving high fives on the field after their 6-3 win over Boston, then staying on the field to watch the final inning of the Angels-Rangers afternoon game.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette's message to season-ticket holders was a clear one: "We still have work to do. " Duquette and Orioles manager Buck Showalter kicked off this year's annual Orioles FanFest with a question-and-answer session for season-ticket holders. Duquette said he's still trying to upgrade the club's pitching staff and would like to add a veteran starting pitcher by free agency. Meanwhile, fans at Baltimore Convention Center were asking whether the club was going to make an announcement on a signing -- the team has shown interest in veteran right-handers A.J. Burnett and Bronson Arroyo -- at FanFest.

Orioles fans, I don't blame you for being upset. Here we are, the second week of January, and the silence from the Warehouse is deafening. Let's review what we have so far. No major moves to make this team better in 2013. No progress in the hunt for a big bat in the middle of the order. No signing of a much-needed first baseman. (Adam LaRoche, we hardly knew you.) Instead, what we get from the Orioles front-office is the sound of crickets. Here's the team's big off-season move so far: they re-signed Nate McLouth to play left field.

After 15 years of waiting for playoff baseball at Camden Yards, Orioles fans had to endure an extra 21/2 hours as chilly rain pushed back the start of Sunday's division series opener against the hated New York Yankees. A mighty roar shook the stadium when the grounds crew peeled away the protective tarp at 8 p.m., conveying just how badly Baltimore fans wanted their October moment. The crowd didn't grow quiet until the Yankees scored five runs in the ninth inning on their way to a 7-2 victory.

The Orioles are expecting their largest late-September crowds in years when the team comes home next week for a final push to the playoffs. Tens of thousands of fans have bought tickets over the last two weeks for the series against the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox, though walk-up tickets will likely be available for most games. "I am 31 years old and I have never had an opportunity to go to a game in September that was part of a pennant race," said Chris Knoerlein of Rodgers Forge, who bought tickets last week with a group of eight friends and family members.

Give yourselves a standing ovation, Orioles fans. You know ... O-R-I-O ... You reclaimed your territory last night. In a way, you convinced everybody that the talk of a "rivalry" between the two nearby baseball teams is a bit of a stretch. On the other hand, if that wasn't a statement of support for your team against an outside aggressor, then what is? What could have been a testy little faceoff between loyalists and rebel defectors to the south turned into possibly the best Orioles home crowd in several years.
