O No! Not Another Orioles Blog. Upon checking Ryan's expertly organized want list against my big ol' box of O's doubles, I was left with a stack of nearly 140 cards to send back. Sensing an opportunity to knock off a few more of my own Birdland cardboard needs, I convinced Ryan to expand the trade. Today, we each received a package in the mail, the serendipitous sort of thing that doesn't happen often in my experience. In thumbing through the pile and considering in the back of my mind which card would accompany the trade post, only one card made me cackle with a perverse, evil delight. That would be this fine-looking card commemorating a hideous, dark time in Orioles history. 75 baserunners in 41 innings...an 8.56 ERA...eight wasted starts...and I'm laughing about it. Time truly does heal all wounds.
