Ten Years Ago Today

This atrocity occurred.


The score is too horrific to post. Instead I will relay the line scores from two players well known to Orioles and Braves fans:

Cal Ripken Jr:

6 at bats, 6 hits, 6 RBIs, 5 runs, 1 double, two homers.

John Smoltz:

2 1/3 IP, 7 hits, 7 runs, all earned, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts.

That pretty much sums up the game. Between the Interleague asswhoopins and the All Star Game in Baltimore where the crowd started a mock chop, I really loathed the Orioles for a few years. The Orioles go for a repeat (or the Braves exact revenge) tonight in Camden.

I remember that game very well. I'm a Braves fan til the end, but I do like the Orioles and Cal Ripken is my favorite player ever.

So a little part of me was rooting for Cal to have a good game, but for the Braves to win... oops.

I hadn't realized that this was the anniversary of it, but I half expected you to mention that horror-fest of a game sometime over the weekend series with the O's.

Should have put Mike Remlinger in earlier.

Thats funny, we did a mock chop during the 11-2 win yesterday. Too bad we still suck so bad. Matt Wieters is GOD!
