Red Sox versus the O's

Congrats to the Orioles on a terrific season, and boos to the Red Sox, who got a chance to pay us back for losing to us last year ("The suspense comes down to the final day," Oct. 3).

Unlike the O's, the Sox couldn't find the pride to field the best team they could. I've seen Little Leaguers play with more heart then the Sox. We gave them the Bambino and this is how they repay us?

    Nick Markakis will be sorely missed here in Baltimore where he has "owned" right field at Camden Yards ("Markakis a class act," Dec. 11). He exudes top-shelf class. What we have learned over the years is that as a Baltimore Oriole, he is a great ball player. As a person, he stands on rarefied air.

    I find it very disappointing that The Sun's sportswriters do not seem to find anything to write about the Orioles. Even when the Ravens season is over, it seems that every day in the paper there is at least one article, big or small, about the Ravens. Once the Orioles season was over, I find little...
