Jinxing the Pen?

by Matthew Taylor

On April 7, after the O's bullpen shut down the Yankees to secure a 6-4 win in the Bronx, the verdict was in: the Birds had made a wise investment.

The Washington Post, among other news outlets, heralded the team's off-season manuevering, as witnessed by the headline of the paper's game story: "Yankees Are Left Penned Up By O's."

We all know what happened next.

Last night the bullpen turned in another fine performance, and The Sun's John Eisenberg is fĂȘting the team in a column headlined, "So far, Orioles right on money with their revamped bullpen."

Cue the Delmon Young heroics.
