Another loss in a new and annoying way (the Twins scored in ONE inning last night), another four-game losing skid, and now a season-high five games under .500. I have some more good news…

Nope, don’t avert your eyes. Look at that. Accept where we are. And notice that the Orioles have both scored the fewest and allowed the most runs in the AL since May 9.
No illusions here. Things are ugly. Hopefully the front office can see it as clearly as we can.
In the meantime, to the links:
The Orioles have been blown out (lost by 5+ runs) 35% of the time since June 1. Fun!
Not long ago at all, Jake & Scott did an episode called “How to Root for a Good Team.” Let’s look back at those days fondly, as we accept our new reality, which is the same as our old reality.
Having Chance waiting is nice, but that shouldn’t be the deciding factor here. Deal Beef because you might be able to get something for him. Heck, Francisco Pena is “waiting in the wings” to help in the second half.
“I don’t really think ahead. I think it’s the same way for most of the guys in this clubhouse — you have to stay in the moment.” I think I found the problem, you guys. (I kid, I kid)
Even if the O’s 2014 fourth-round pick switches to baseball now, he’ll already be that far behind in his development. On the other hand, maybe being as far away from the O’s pitching development team for as long as possible is just what the kid needs.
Did you know that, just TWO NIGHTS AGO, Parker Bridwell pitched six scoreless innings in Minnesota against the Twins.
That’s the Tragic of Orioles Baseball!
Ugh…have a good weekend, Birdland. Maybe the team will win a game or two.
