It’s the Orioles

Baltimore’s magical season continues.

The Orioles just finished off a 5-1 win against the Rangers in the wild card play-in game. That means the Yankees postseason road begins in Baltimore. On paper, the Rangers seemed like the far more dangerous team — Texas had the best record in the American League for much of the season — but the Orioles have been beating expectations all year. The Yankees and Orioles split their season series.

“Obviously you know when you play a team 18 times, you know all their strengths and all their weaknesses,” Joe Girardi said. “But in a sense, they know all your strengths and all your weaknesses. I don’t know if there’s a benefit or not, but I know that you’re a lot more familiar with them.”

In other news, Chris Dickerson and David Aardsma both tweeted tonight that they are not on the postseason roster. Aardsma was never expected to make the cut, but Dickerson seemed like a legitimate option.
