Buckle up

The years of disappointment are over, Baltimore. Last season was not a fluke. No longer will you have to hold on to the division title of 1997, for there are pennants in the future. The near future. Buck and Co. have assembled an energetic, youthful core that is making their mark in the always-competitive American League East. Rather than waiting for an autumn collapse, O's fans have much greater things to look forward to in this second half of the 2013 season. How about Chris Davis contending for a Triple Crown, or Manny Machado putting together a 20-game hit streak? What about the potential of having six, yes six, Orioles in the Midsummer Classic in New York? It's going to be a wild second half, Birdland. -- By Adam Gutekunst
