    Default Don't look now, but...

    The Orioles have the best record in baseball at 19-9, and the Nationals aren't far behind at 18-10 (in first place). Will the Orioles have their usual May-June collapse? Will the Nationals lack of depth catch up to them? We shall see.

    I'm not getting excited yet. I think the Nationals at this point have the better chance of maintaining their success thus far.

    But, I have a friend who is a baseball freak and knows a couple of the people involved in the O's organization (farm clubs and front office people) and he has been telling me for a couple years now the O's are gonna be good sooner than you think, so we'll see.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    I'm not so sure about that - the Nationals are much younger, and their best players haven't even begun their MLB careers, really. We don't know how they'll react to a full 160 game season.

    The O's, on the other hand, have played 2-3 seasons together already, and have some chemistry going. If their pitching holds up, there is no reason they can't keep this winning going. That's a big IF though; their pitching is usually what collapses after a promising start.

    It's the pitching that concerns me. The Nationals have a better rotation. If the middle relief for the O's can maintain, I can see things differently. I guess it's like the Redskins, I am tired of getting my hope up only to be crushed by reality.
