It’s Time to Start Calling the Orioles the A-Team

It’s time to start calling Andy MacPhail’s Orioles the A-Team.

John Tomase of BostonHerald.com has unintentionally cast MacPhail as Hannibal Smith with the recent article “Andy MacPhail’s plan coming together for Orioles.”

Cue the Hannibal Smith catch phrase: “I love it when a plan comes together.”

Clearly Tomase has A-Team on the brain as he describes how the Orioles “have very stealthfully, and quickly, laid the groundwork.”

Stealthfully? Quickly? Sounds like a certain group of ’80s pop culture mercenaries to me.

Besides, there’s a certain literal irony to calling the mid-market Orioles “soldiers of fortune” as they work to take down the free-spending Red Sox and Yankees.

Be it decreed: Solid personnel moves in Baltimore will now be greeted by the phrase “Andy’s on the jazz.”

  2. Me too. I was kind of hoping I'd be purple through Feb. 7.
