Meaningful September baseball in Baltimore

I’m truly excited that the remaining American League playoff races are going to come down to “Who has to play the resurgent Orioles the least?”


The Orioles have two legitimate Rookie of the Year candidates and neither one of them is named Matt Wieters

I’m talking about Nolan Reimold, currently slugging .546 and leading all major-league rookies in OPS; and Brad Bergesen, who’s been the Orioles’ best starter this year at 23.  Higher-profile pitching prospects Rick Porcello and David Price have ERAs a little lower, but Bergesen looks better on home runs, walks, and strikeouts.  He is, as they say, “in the discussion.”

Here’s Tom on some Reimold heroics.
