    The eternal state of optimism that the Yankees will win it all

    Congratulations to the Orioles on a Great Season

    I hope that all NY Yankee fans will join me in congratulating the Baltimore Orioles on a great season - they gave us everything we could handle in the ALDS.

    Oriole fans have a lot to look forward to next season.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    They have a .500 season to look forward to when their obscene success rate in 1-run games and extra innings evens out.
    Offseason, time to try optimism again.

    Buck proved again this year what a great Manager he is. Just like he was when he was here.

    Congrats to the O's on a eventful season.

    They might just be back in the same position next season, assuming the Sox fade to the basement of the East once again .

    or, their young core players grow into their shoes. Buck's going to have them competing next season...

    I hope the Orioles, Rays, Blue Jays and Red Sox all finish below .500 next year.
    Pardon, for us.

    My big concern is who replaces Showalter-that's the guy who gets teams to the promised land.

    Re: Congratulations to the Orioles on a Great Season

    I'm too elated tonight to argue about it but Buck is one hell of a manager. There is no reason why he shouldn't continue on in Baltimore for years to come -- if he wants to.

    Re: Congratulations to the Orioles on a Great Season

    I hated every minute of this series but it is great having Baltimore back in the mix. It's like the old days of the AL East in the 70's.

    Except Boston sucks, but then again...they sucked then too!

    Agreed. It's surprising he never won a World Series. Ironic that he managed the Yankees until 95', then after he was fired they win the World Series. He manages D-Backs until 2000 and then they win the World Series in 2001 after he is fired again.

    Re: Congratulations to the Orioles on a Great Season

    I am happy to congratulate Baltimore--as long as they lost. I think it's great to have them as rivals: 1) they lose 2) they are the 2nd closest AL city to my home. I love watching the Yanks win in OP@CY.

    Better than those obnoxious tools in Boston (talking about the fans) or the team that plays in that toilet in Tampa with the cowbells. And don't get me started on those Canadians.

    I don't get the Showalter hate. He did great things with the Yankees and he is just a smart, hardworking and tough manager. He's only 8 or 9 on the whiner list.

    LOL

    Same here, now I'm happy to congratulate Baltimore on a great season, but a few hours ago I wanted some unspeakable tragedy to hit their club-house like an atom bomb.

    Nah but all kidding aside, they were a scrappy bunch all year and it took 167 Games to shake them. They have a lot to be proud of. What they lack in talent, they more than made up for in heart and determination.

    I agree with everyone else, the Orioles put up a hell of a fight. Damn good team, and Showalter did great managing that club. It'd be great if they became a heated rival again.

    As long as they lose to us relentlessly.

    My favorite thing yesterday after (1) the Yankees winning and (2) watching them celebrate... was watching Buck Showalter quietly leaving the dugout to go back to the locker room.

    I'm not looking forward to next season with Michael Kay gushing even more enthusiastically about the greatness of Buck Showalter.

    Re: Congratulations to the Orioles on a Great Season

    A good team that played WAY over their heads, but sustained it all the way to the end when their lack of postseason experience seemed to severely hamper some of their performance. I'm thinking of Jim Johnson, Adam Jones, and Chris Davis in particular.

    David Cone said it best (and repeatedly) in the post-game last night. If you're an Orioles fan, now you look to Peter Angelos and you say, it's your move. If ownership steps up, they can build on this foundation and stay very competitive for a while.

    But I agree with others who have said this same 25-man roster isn't likely to repeat the statistical anomalies in 2013. Buck did a fantastic job and I'm happy to give him credit for some of their over-performance, but it's almost certainly not sustainable for a second year.

    Well Said.

    They are a scrappy team, but winning so many 1 run games is indeed an anomaly and something you can't expect to duplicate in 2013. They'll need to upgrade their talent or they probably falls back to third in the division behind the Yankees and Rays.

    Also the Bosox freed up a ton of payroll with that big deadline deal and they're gonna be big spenders this off season and mega talent like Josh Hamilton.

    I didn't have much confidence in John Wetteland that series and am not convinced he would have done any better than Jack McDowell did in Game 5. Before crucifying Showalter for that ALDS, remember how far he and Gene Michael progressed the team from the doldrums of 1990 and 1991.
