Back in the Saddle

Well it has been a while since I have blogged on this site. Sorry for the delay. Blame the computer issues I've been having, and the school work I need to do.
Much has happened since my last post a few days after the Baltimore Ravens lost a heartbreaker to the Minnesota Vikings that left their record at 3-3. The Ravens have won five out of their last eight games to put them in great position to grab one of the final two wild-card spots in the AFC. I like their chances because everyone else is losing, and they have been playing much better of late. The Ravens need to beat Oakland in the last game at the least, or hope they can beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh. It certainly wouldn't hurt to see other 7-7 teams lose their final two games.
As for the Orioles, I'll have a lot more on them as soon as the season ends, but I do like the moves they have made. People need to realize that the Millwood, Atkins, and Gonzalez moves they have made this offseason are not to win the World Series. They are building block players towards making runs in a year or two. We need to realize that in baseball, there are several stepping stones to building a winning team. They have grown prospects in their system, and now it's time to bring in a veteran presence to the pitching staff, a solid closer, and a solid corner infielder until the arrival of one of their top prospects Josh Bell. I'll have a lot more on the Orioles as we go along, and certainly as we get closer to spring training.
Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for another Raven's playoff run. More on that this week....
