Regional Cover Story

David Simon, creator of HBO's "The Wire" and co-creator of "Treme," offers a treatise about the Baltimore Orioles' miraculous 2012 season. A veteran scribe of the Baltimore Sun and a man that gave Baltimore a face through his iconic television show, Simon explores how hope is still a foreign concept in a city that has lost for so long. But with a gritty team that thrives in extra innings and defies all the principles of saber metrics, the Orioles seek to erase memories of Jeffrey Maier and the 1988 losing streak.
