Nineteen games still remain this season, as the birds are currently in the best position possible to make the playoffs. Regardless of the outcome of the 2012 season, it will no doubt be one to remember, as their .500 mark this year is their best performance since 1997.
Baltimore's win over the Rays on Thursday was the 27th victory by only a 1 run margin, out of 34 games. Fans have been extremely appreciative of this season's excitement, with highly anticipated challenges in upcoming home games against the Athletics, the Yankees, and the Boston Red Sox.
