The Orioles have started the 2021 season against the Red Sox. This reminded me of the 2011 Orioles-Red Sox game when Robert Andino’s hit off Red Sox closer ended the Red Sox playoff chances. The Orioles were bad but it felt good to Orioles fans to knock another team out of the playoffs.
That winter, Robert Andino was signing autographs at the Orioles FanFest. I was behind a couple of young guys who had a picture of the Andino hit and heard one say “I tried to get him to sign it “Suck it, Pap” but he wouldn’t.” That was a great idea.
