Let me see here….

“20% off Macy’s”…no thank you…delete.

“Geico – 15 minutes could save you…”  blah blah blah.  Delete.

“Living Social Deals:  20% off Brazilian wax”… ummmmmm…delete.

Hmm, here is an email from my editor with a link attached.  I wonder what the link is:  “Baltimore Orioles are getting ready to sell playoff tickets.”

Wait, what?!?!

That’s right folks, the O’s are primed to make a playoff run for the first time since 1997.  It’s tough to even think about it because it’s been so long, but they are currently holding on to the last Wild-Card spot in the American League, and also sit four games out of first place behind the New York Yankees.

Backing them up is VP of baseball operations Dan Duquette who acquired starting pitcher Joe Saunders from the Arizona Diamondbacks for reliever Matt Lindstrom and a player to be named later.

Saunders has had an average 2012, going 6-10 with a 4.22 ERA. He did have two great seasons while a member of the Angels in 2008 and 2009. During those two seasons he went 17-7 and 16-7, respectively, with ERAs of 3.41 and 4.60. Besides giving the Orioles a good left arm, he also gives them a great veteran presence.

Lindstrom did pitch well for Baltimore, going 1-0 with a stingy 2.72 ERA out of the bullpen, the lowest ERA of his career. Lindstrom did a great job in Baltimore, but a veteran starter was a big need for the O’s.

The O’s have a legitimate shot to play October baseball, and Duquette has done a nice job bringing in random players, making Baltimore almost seem like the Island of Misfit Toys.  However they get it done, they are a fun bunch to watch and can hopefully keep it going.

Random notes of the week: Congrats to Chris Davis for smacking three home runs against the Toronto Blue Jays last week and driving in four runs. More congrats are in order for Jim Johnson who recorded his 40th save on Monday night against the Chicago White Sox, making him only the second Oriole to reach the 40-save mark. Next to fall, Randy Myers’ team high of 45 set in 1997.
