The Baltimore Orioles simply refuse to go away. Despite a spate of injuries and an offense that has at times struggled, the Orioles share the AL East lead with 21 games to go. What makes this so remarkable? Consider some perspective: Just three more wins will guarantee the O's their first finish over .500 since 1997, when Cal Ripken Jr. and Roberto Alomar still roamed Camden Yards. Will Baltimore keep finding ways to win and beat out the Yankees and Rays for the AL East title?
