When Did You Just KNOW That This Season Would Be Different?

When Did You Just KNOW That This Season Would Be Different?

PostPost #1 by ofahn » September 21st, 2012, 2:23 pm

There were so many big games for the Orioles this year but there was one game where I just KNEW that year was going to be so different. I KNEW we we had a special group of players, and I KNEW we were going to have a winning season, and I BELIEVED we might make the playoffs.

I don't want to share my choice yet, but I don't think I will be the only one to choose it. What's yours, and why?

Probably when Chris Davis won a game as a pitcher.

Not a specific game, but probably the 5 game winning streak in July after we had started out the second half 1-4. I had a feeling then.

Good choice, but it wasn't mine.

When the starting 5 in the rotation at the season's start was like playing "Where's Waldo" and the team kept on winning.

No, but it would have been another good choice. We blew a big lead to the Yankees and then came back in the bottom of the inning to blow them away. Great win.

Several high points:
-- Beating Boston in 17.
-- Coming back from 5 down to beat the Yankees.
-- Beating Tampa a day after we were embarrassed at home.
-- Going 3-3 in Detroit and Texas
-- Beating Oakland last Sunday.
-- Sweeping Seattle 8-)

Lots of things, but when they started winning games even after Markakis got hurt. Just seemed as if nothing would stop them.

They're 9-4 without him.

I've been looking forward to your take on this. For me, when we beat Boston with CHRIS DAVIS PITCHING two shut down innings for the win I just KNEW that this year was going to be different; however, I didn't expect we would be this good even then.
