Interesting oddity: The years Weaver's Orioles went to the Series, the won thier division with over 100 games. (1969, 70, 71, 79) The years the O's won the east with fewer than 100 wins. ( 73, 74) they failed to win the LCS.

1971 Orioles had four 20 games winners (Dave McNally, Jim Palmer, Mike Cuellar, and Pat Bodson, IIRC) that's somthing you wan;t see these days.
