I dunno, guys. I keep saying there’s no bottom, and the Orioles just keep proving me right. Did you know that they have now lost 14 straight games against American League teams, and haven’t beaten an AL team since May 25, over a calendar month ago? Seems impossible right? I assure you, it’s not…not for these Birds.
These Birds, who have now managed to surpass even the 1988 Orioles in ineptitude!
The 2018 Orioles are now 23-56. The 1988 Orioles through as many games were 24-55. This team is bad.

To some depressing links, I suppose…
Chris Davis was good in his first game back from his benching, walking and hitting a home run. The next game, he hit a bases-loaded double. After that, he was awful again. But last night, he hit the go-ahead three-run home run onto Eutaw Street in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was awesome!
Unfortunately, we’re not allowed to have ANY FUN this season, so Zach Britton got exactly zero outs before the Mariners tied the game in the ninth with a homer of their own.
Dan Connolly has more on those three minutes of ecstasy and misery that transpired between the eighth and ninth innings at OPACY last night.
Last week, Scott was out. This week, Jake is sittin’ on a sack of beans, sittin’ down in the New Orleans, so @Gwodzilla joined Scott to wallow in misery.
Bob Nightengale says the Los Angeles Dodgers are the frontrunners for Manny Machado. Perhaps the Anaheim Angels will enter the bidding, as Zach Cozart just hit the DL for an extended period. The guess here is that Pete wants Manny representing the Birds at the All-Star Game, so nothing will happen until at least then, if not longer.
I’ll take “Darkest Timeline Headlines for 500, Alex.”
Maybe the Orioles won’t get swept again (they will)?
