A Theory About the Baltimore Orioles

Originally posted on Blue Jays Luddite

So the Jays are in Baltimore tonight and last time they faced each other, the Orioles won 2 out of 3 games. I'm hoping that things turnout better this time around, but it also got me thinking. How is it even possible that Baltimore can have a winning record this late in the season? And I know the answer. It could be because I've recently watched The Wire in its entirety, but I'm convinced that the commissioner has influenced Baltimore's front office to somehow juke the stats so that they come out looking like winners. It's a classic case of short term thinking in the Charm City.

As an alternate theory, I'm pretty sure that detective McNulty is influencing Baltimore's record, by changing the box score after the games are over, but that's OK because he's awesome...
