The Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees are gearing up for the decisive game 5 in the series which will be underway at 5:00 p.m. Kyle Simon, a pitching prospect currently pitching for the Phillies affiliate The Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League, was acquired from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for Jim Thome. He turned to Twitter today to comment on the series. He voiced support for his former team:

Baseball Prospectus writer Bradley Ankrom reports that his outing today was slightly less than stellar. Simon recorded just one out. His line:
1/3 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 0 BB, 0 K
Sounds like he should focus on his own team.
