PICTURE OF THE DAY

WHILE YOU WERE OUT PARTYING, the Texas Rangers were whoopin' the O's 30 to 3. Not a typo. 30 to 3. It was the ninth time a major league team scored 30 runs, the first since the Chicago Colts set the major league mark in a 36-7 rout of Louisville in a National League game on June 28, 1897, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

In what may be the dumbest quote in baseball since 1897, Rangers' manager Ted Washington sad, "Tonight there were some balls thrown across the plate and we put them in play. Everybody was part of it. It was a total team effort."

Good one, Skip!

Earlier in the day the O's announced a contract extention for thier rookie manager. Evidently the pitching staff wasn't wild about that idea.
