If You Could Only Imagine
It was a very long hot sticky Summer in the city and our beloved Baltimore Orioles did get a little bit better as the season closed. It was getting kind of hard there for awhile to find something a little more rare than an Oriole win, if not just plain impossible. The average everyday person has a much better chance of winning the power ball in the multi-state lottery then seeing another Bird victory. If you are as tired as I am of seeing loss after loss after loss and next year if the Orioles don't start playing better than a high school team, maybe it's time to take it up a level and move onto plan - B. After all the Orioles aren't the only team in Charm city, and when the baseball season starts up again our Baltimore Ravens are just kicked back waiting for football season to start again anyway. So why not have the men in purple help their fellow birds out of this rut that they are in? Why not indeed, and just imagine how the new Oriole roster might now look like. With Quarterback Joe Flacco on the pitcher's mound throwing those fast balls at the opponents. And if he couldn't throw the ball over the plate, then he could certainly run it on in. Now behind home plate catching we would have linebacker Terrell Suggs. Who in their right mind would want to bunt or cross home plate with this man standing there. On 1st base who else would we have other then the man himself outside linebacker Ray Lewis. Even if the other team got a hit they wouldn't want to cross paths with Ray. On second base we would have Jonathan Ogden to stop anybody that might make it past Ray Lewis, like that's going to happen. At short stop there would be Todd Heap, who could certainly get any ball that would get within 20 yards of him. At 3rd base we would have Brendon Ayanbadejo, and there is no way even if they made it this far is anybody getting past him. In the outfield in no particular order, because it doesn't matter with these guys, we would have Chris Mcalister, Ed Reed, and Derrick Mason for our last line of defense. Try hitting the ball past these guys. And for a designated hitter, like we would need one, we would have Ray Rice. The manager would be of coarse coach John Harbaugh with his hard line stance. With a team like this, attendance would certainly pick up in Birdland's Camden Yards and we would most likely have a better baseball record then we do now. But don't get me wrong, I am not crazy and I know that this is only a fantasy, but just think if you could only imagine...............
I'll meet you here!
