As for the Orioles, they lost 3-2 yesterday afternoon to the Toronto Blue Jays. But we have to take the long view on this one. Jeremy Guthrie, who has a chance to be a key part of the next good Orioles team, appeared back on form, pounding the strike zone with his fastball. Guthrie will be among the more fascinating stories on the team going into next season. He's the feel-good story of this year, a found treasure if there ever was one. Hitters around the league have said his stuff is for real, but a recent spate of poor outings may have had some wondering if his brilliant first half was a fluke of the 2005 Bruce Chen variety. We don't know for sure, but his almost 3-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio merits optimism.
