Can You Feel It?

Tags: Baltimore Orioles, Matt Wieters, Nolan Reimold, Sports

I can feel it in the air tonight…can you?

While it is easy to overlook a 7-2 Baltimore Orioles win over the Detroit Tigers as a late-May hot streak continuing, it was so much more than that.

There was an electricity in Camden Yards tonight that was easy to feel even watching on .

Matt Wieters arrived in town tonight.

But it was more.

Look at the lineup:

Brian Roberts – Homegrown All-Star

Adam Jones – Best trade value in team history (the anti-Glenn Davis)

Nick Markakis – Homegrown All-Star-To-Be

Luke Scott – Superb trade acquisition (5 homeruns in 3 games!)

Nolan Reimold – Resident Man-Crush

Brad Bergesen – Homegrown starting pitcher

Add Mr. Wieters to the mix and you get the catalyst – the complete cultural change in the Orioles’ clubhouse.

The times, they are a changin’ in Charm City.  And hopefully the wins will continue to follow.
