"Hopefully, they can win the [American League] wild card," said Pearce, whom the Orioles waived in July and is now with the New York Yankees. "I really tried not to look back and think about that. [Baltimore] was a great experience, great team, great coaches. But baseball had different plans for me. I'm with the Yankees now, and that's where my focus is. I wish those guys the best of luck, but not against us."
