Let us break from mourning the loss of Hilda Mason with this completely unnecessary posting about the Orioles…

Unlike everyone else I know, I have not ditched the O’s for the new hometown team. But, shit, if the Orioles aren’t just the most hateable sports franchise around. Over the weekend, it decided to become the first team out of the dugout to hate on the Mitchell Report. The New York Times, reports it here.

Sure the Mitchell Report describes the Orioles as a juice factory (and still no playoff run!). But the O’s have no business critiquing the methodology of the report. Why not refute the allegations one by one?
