The Oakland A’s recently debuted their 2012 playoffs theme song with a 70′s sounding ditty.  Now it’s the Orioles’ turn.  They went with a Mr. Belvedere-ish, Abba-sounding jam.  It actually sounds more suited for their days with Brooks and Frank Robinson.

But hey, who can argue with the title – Orioles Magic?  They certainly used some magic to maintain their standing on top of the AL Wild Card hunt the last few weeks of the season and then in the play-in game Friday night in Texas.  Their climb will be tough going through their AL East foe Yankees, but manager Buck Showalter obviously has a better handle on things than Mr. Belvedere did when he first started.

But if they play to the quality of their theme song, it’ll be a three-game exit.
