I visited St. Louis this weekend and took in the Sunday finale of the Cards – Cubs series at the new Busch Stadium. Following the O’s on the out of town scoreboard, I don’t know which of the following was more surprising: that the Birds rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the fifth inning or that Danys Baez picked up the win. Scratch that. I do know which was more surprising.
Baez es mas macho after all with three perfect innings and three strikeouts, a far cry from those past performances in Orange and Black that led fans to boo his relief appearances in 2007, the dreaded “Summer of the Bullpen.”
Speaking of booing, the Booog Pows, who earned a measure of local celebrity on Opening Day with their song “Boo Teixeira,” are looking to become more than just a one-hit wonder. Judge for yourself whether that’s possible by checking out their new video, “Birdland.“
